Multi-Disciplined Approach to Singing Tuition
Kathleen’s passion and knowledge of singing is evident in her teaching. Her balanced yet firm and caring approach encourages you develop a singing technique that will strengthen your voice and ensure you use your voice correctly. She uses a number of modern and well founded techniques to teach with
individual and personal care.
Developing strong vocal technique
Kathleen’s singing lessons are centred on developing a strong vocal technique across a range of singing styles. This includes:
- Respiratory (the breathing muscles)
- Phonation (the sound producing muscles)
- Resonation (the sound quality muscles)
- Articulation (the sound shaping muscles)
- Register transitions and range extension
By using exercises such as scales, arpeggios, triads, songlets and rhythmic drills, Kathleen will help refine your singing pitch and rhythmic practice. This will develop your repertoire and help you choose songs that suit your voice, personality and ability.
Lessons will also assist in enhancing your singing performance skills, such as practice methods, stage presence, exam and audition skills, and actor/singer development.

An individual assessment will help Kathleen develop a tailored program of singing lessons to meet your goals.
- All musical styles are explored and a specialisation that meets your need is encouraged
- Training in the fundamentals of music if required
- 60 minutes lessons are preferable as progress can be monitored
