Musical training is a more potent instrument than any other because rhythm and harmony find their way into the inner places of the soul – Plato
Hi! I’m Elise and I am a music teacher specialising in singing lessons, flute lessons as well as voice coaching.
I am based in Canberra and offer online music lessons as well as in-person classes.
Lesson information and fees can be found below.
Due to the COVID-19 situation, I am providing online lessons.
In-person lessons will be available when ACT Health gives the all clear.
I will guide you on how to learn that new song or improvise, harmonise and learn new techniques, refine your vocals and to generally have fun with your voice.
I also offer professional level audition preparation for Theatre, University, College or School for children, teenagers adults.
The preferable age for tuition is from 14 years upward – (there will be an exception for younger, mature and dedicated children).
My vocal exercises and technique can be applied to all genres or types of music. I have guided singers in rock bands and those seeking auditions in musical theatre.
I love to help people find their voice through expression, tone and breath.
Yes, I believe that anyone can sing with the right technique, feeling/belief and dedication!
Have you ever felt that your voice is not your true voice? And when you speak, you don’t feel heard?
Do you want to like the sound of your own voice? Would you like to feel more confident when you speak?
As an experienced vocal coach, I can assist you with your everyday speech patterns, including building tone colour and confidence.
Apart from helping you with your speech, singing exercises and play-acting can help you access the creative side of your brain. After childhood, we tend to let this playful side of ourselves go and the right side of the brain lies dormant, waiting for us to let go of all constraints.
So come and explore your voice; be creative and courageous!
I teach beginner to advanced flute to children and adults. For children, the recommended age is from 10 upward.
I have been teaching flute for over 30 years. I particularly enjoy seeing children and adults have fun with playing.
Although practice is important with any instrument, I believe practice outside lessons will become a natural progression for those who enjoy their instruments.
“We need people who memorize all their exercises so that they can play scales with some sort of charm and virtuosity, later transferring this inner meaning to the music they are playing“- Sir James Galway (legendary flautist).
