From the first moment that I heard the effortless beauty and strength of
Elly’s singing, I knew that I just had have singing lessons with her! While I
had studied music for most of my life, I had no idea how to use my voice
effectively to achieve the sounds that I wanted. Every time I sang, I just felt
strained and tired afterwards.
Elly really turned things around for me. Her amazing knowledge of vocal technique,
posture, healthy sound production, and musical style, was evident from our first lesson.
She generously shared her singing knowledge, and worked through my questions and
concerns by giving me structured feedback and encouragement.
Elly prepared me for auditions which led me to sing with musicians such as James Morrison,
and to successfully audition for a Masters of Music in Vocal Performance. Most importantly,
she helped me to achieve the vocal technique and confidence that has allowed me to sing healthily and happily.
I can’t recommend Elly enough and will definitely call her up for a lesson if she ever comes back to Brisbane!!!

I had taken singing lessons quite a bit when I was young, but stopped when I finished high school. In the almost 10 years following, I began noticing that my voice was just not the same – like any instrument, if you don’t practice you lose that skill. 3 years ago I started taking lessons with Elly. Elly made me feel comfortable straight away. She helped me get the skills back and also taught me how to take control over my voice. Her friendly manner and expert advice gave me the confidence to not give up on what I love the most – singing!
