About Me

I was born in Perth, Western Australia. I commenced performing at the age of 3 years old. Life on the stage began as a dancer and at 10 years old I began singing. I struggled for many years to find my head voice. This is where I learnt that having a good teacher matters, a teacher that can deal with all vocal issues not just their own. I have been taught and mentored by Master Coaches Spencer Welch (Vancouver), Kathy Kennedy (San Francisco) and Linda Tomkinson (Utah) as well as vocal coaches Sue Kingham and Joe Ribaudo. I began training in dance/vocals/performance at Peta Norton School of Dance & Johnny Young Talent School. 

 

I am a Certified Singing Instructor with IVA (Institute for Vocal Advancement.) As an IVA Certified Singing Instructor I receive regular training and complete annual testing both on my teaching and my voice. More information on IVA can be found on the 'Singing Technique' page of this website. I am a current full member of ANATS  (Australian National Association of Teachers of Singing.) I first began teaching in my 20's at Centrestage School of Dance. Since then I have taught at my Home Studio in Dianella, Dynamic Performing Arts, The Performance Company and Skype. I have also worked for Carmelo Pizzino (from Dancing with the Stars) as a Vocal Director & Music Editor. I have a current Working With Children & Police Clearance.  I teach all levels and ages from beginners to advanced. I teach both Contemporary and Musical Theatre Vocals.
