With 20 years as a professional performance singer in both Australia and overseas, postgraduate qualifications in teaching singing and almost 15 years as a singing teacher, your voice is in good hands! Kathleen has trained many singing students to success in university exams, HSC exams, competitions, show auditions and has developed her students’ voices across a range of performance styles.
‘Learning singing with Kathleen has given me precise technical skills which I use confidently to communicate characters and emotion through a wide range of songs and styles. I have learnt to use my whole mind and body and found so much enjoyment in performing, as my voice is now robust and powerful.
I value the balanced time I spend learning and performing and fitting that into my busy life. Learning singing has been a committed journey I have found exciting, fun and rewarding, and would recommend Kathleen to all singers of all styles, ages and levels’.Maja Namouska had been a long-term client who was offered a rare place in the Sydney Conservatorium Jazz course
I taught Ria for 5 years. Following a very successful HSC, Ria was offered a place at UNSW as a music student. Ria received distinctions throughout the program and in 2012 she received a distinction at the completion of her music degree.
Ria began an emerging career as a soloist and choral singer with high level choirs. What’s so special about Ria? Ria is blind and has been since she was three.
What Ria says about her singing lessons:
‘Using exact technical knowledge including better posture, precise support and resonance shaping, my voice has grown tremendously during training with Kathleen.
Kathleen is an evidence based teacher who is enthusiastic and friendly and uses care to teach. Kathleen has helped me understand a heightened sense of real professionalism in singing and performing. I have received distinctions in a University Performance course and begun a pre professional classical voice career. I would especially recommend Kathleen to singers studying at Degree level and beyond’. ~ Ria Andriani
