"I have a belief there are many elements that create a singer, not only the possession of an attractive voice! Australia has a rich and diverse arts environment however; it is not solely guided by the traditional "European system". A singer needs to be flexible, versatile and open to new repertoire. I believe a teacher and mentor should aim to produce a singer who can work in Australia and internationally in a variety of musical and theatrical styles. This is the focus of my studio and my personal aim: to be a singer and produce singers who sing with a love of what they are creating, who sing with healthy voice, are open to all styles of music and have a passion for diverse performance practice of the highest standard.

Opera Queenslands Over 50's Moving Opera! 

I have just finished a week with Opera Queensland working on their Moving Opera! program but with a twist. It catered for Seniors. We had a blast and some amazing uplifting moments. It was fantastic to meet many Gold Coast singers, and I hope we continue our singing together in some way or other. If anyone is on the Gold Coast you must look up the choir scene. Great Social times to be had!
