We offer singing lessons all days of the week and on Saturday.

We have 2 vocal teachers at the school, one of which is the director.

One of the advantages of singing is it is extremely customisable making it acceptable for both serious musicians or anyone just wanting to do a hobby.

No matter your age, skill level or experience you will still receive technical and vocal control training, often without having to focus on the dry aspects.

Apart from working on songs we also teach:

Vocal Flexibility/ Dexterity/ Stamina
Vocal technique control
Vocal anatomy and instrument understanding
Music Form/ Reading from notated music/ Rhythm
Diction and speech
Music Theory
Sight Singing
Aural (Listening) training and recognition.

Children’s lessons are often song oriented with technique placed in order not to overwhelm or bore them. It is more structured than adult lessons.

Teen and Adult lessons do tend to have more technical aspects depending on the individuals preference.

Apart from VCE music singing don’t generally take vocal exams unless they are studying only Musical Theatre or Classical genres.

What we do offer is opportunities so sing in shows and competitions and gain performance experience that way.

If your a singer songwriter type we have a songwriting class where we often use the recording studio to record original projects.

For singers wanting more harmony and choral training (a great way to improve pitch and blending techniques) We have a A cappella Vocals class that is contemporary modern and fun.

And for those who love musical theater… we have a whole class dedicated to the subject.

Teens and Adult lesson are also treated with the same technical ideas, but progress in a different way much more tailored to their specific needs.

We do recommend that all beginner students learn on a acoustic guitar no matter their age. This is to develop and solidify skills they will need in higher levels.
At a time specified by the teacher, students can move on to learn the electric guitar, but students may choose to stay on acoustic if they choose.

Guitar lessons are available for examinations of the students wish.

Many guitar students also like to write songs and sometimes even enjoy singing. We have a songwriters class for any students interested where we develop write and record your original songs.

Violin is very dependant on good listening skills, so you can expect a lot of listening will be needed for this subject.

Violin is also known to be unforgiving. While it is a beautiful instrument when mastered, it can sometimes be unrewarding in the beginning. Expect to take a while before to bow sounds angelic when sliding across the screen, but don’t let that put you off. After some time of hard work violin is one of the most beautiful sounding instruments.

Violin is a exam driven subject, but it is not only for classical music. There are many modern and contemporary options for violin. Just be prepared to practise.
