I was born in Newcastle and grew up in Lake Macquarie before making the big move to Perth to study for my Bachelor of Music - Classical Vocal Performance at the Western Australian Academy of Performing Arts (WAAPA).
After graduating I was awarded a scholarship to spend the following year as a Dame Nellie Melba Opera Trust Scholar which provided the opportunity to further my learning and helped launch my singing career. The same year I also began another dream job as a singing teacher and I set up my first teaching studio at Bolton Point.
I have since had the great pleasure to continue teaching music lessons whilst pursuing my singing career, performing across Australia and overseas with Opera Australia, The 7 Sopranos, as a freelance performer and in a local band.
With a Bachelor of Music- Classical Vocal Performance and a Graduate Diploma of Music from the Western Australian Academy of Performing Arts (WAAPA) as well as over twenty years of performance experience including two years touring with Opera Australia I can confidently say that whatever your reasons for wanting to learn to sing, I can help!
I grew up in Newcastle so it's lovely to be back home sharing what I've learnt.
