Why do you want to take singing lessons?

  • Are you a shower singer who wants to impress the neighbours?
  • Are you embarrassed to sing nursery rhymes to your kids?
  • Is there a special song you’d like to sing for your partner?
  • Do you want to nail that karaoke competition?
  • Have you always dreamed of performing in a band?
  • Are you a performing artist who wants to enhance your voice?

Singing lessons are not just about your voice. They also help to develop your musical ear and performance technique. Every person is different, so depending on your experience your sessions are tailored to what your voice needs to bring out your own unique sound.  You are never too old to learn to sing. 

It’s often said, “but singing doesn’t run in my family.” Yes, the natural timbre of your voice is determined by genetics, but you can learn to drain and develop pitch, range, tune and, mostly confidence.

Bad singing can be a matter of perception. Many people just aren’t hearing the notes correctly, to begin with, or don’t have the knowledge to control their vocal cords. But what if you were to have a clearer understanding of musical intervals (the difference between two pitches?) What if you dedicated time to practice ear training in order to perfect your perception? 

Are you ready to take the step?

About Me

I’ve been a performing artist for the past thirty years and I know what it takes to get there. I started out as a shy keyboard player who slowly progressed into becoming a lead vocalist.   I’ve performed internationally and around NZ. My preferred style is rock, pop and ballads.  Performance anxiety, voice strain, lack of range – I’ve overcome them all. Through my many experiences I  have learned  techniques, and I want to share them with you.

I offer a free 30-minute assessment where we discuss your goals. Then I will assess your voice and range. Next, we’ll talk about what we will work on for your voice. I’d like you to have an idea of a song you’d like to work on so we can work out some exercises to get you there.  The main thing is to have fun!

Leila is a fantastic singing teacher. My daughter really enjoys her lessons and is developing both skills and confidence. Highly recommend!
