About Singing in St Ives


Singing in St Ives is a private tutoring service offering singing, piano and music theory lessons for anyone from six to sixty.

For six years I have been guiding students through their personal music journey.  I have helped students succeed in a wide range of secondary and tertiary music courses and exams, including:

  • HSC Music I and II

  • Sydney University music courses

  • The Australian Institute of Music contemporary music courses

  • JMC Academy

  • AMPA

  • AMEB and Trinity Exams

But it’s not all about exams.  Some of my students just want to learn to sing for their own enjoyment, or to learn a particular song to sing to their partner at their wedding.  Still others have gone on to become professional musicians.

I offer all my students the opportunity to learn in a fun, happy and safe environment.  Discovering their goals, nurturing them, and inspiring them on their musical journey also inspires me.  I love to see my students master the skills they need to achieve realise their dreams, and surprise themselves with what they can achieve.

At Singing in St Ives students will find the knowledge, dedication and enthusiasm to achieve their dreams.

A Little Bit About Me

Music is my life!  I have been singing and playing piano since I was seven years old.  I have worked as a session musician and singer and played in a range of covers duos and bands, as well as original bands.  I have played hundreds of gigs in pubs and clubs, performed in restaurants, cafes and at weddings, and recorded both live and in a studio.  I have toured with a number of bands both in Australia and overseas.

Since completing a Bachelor of Entertainment: Popular Music and Performance at JMC Academy six year ago I have been able to combine my passion for music with my love of teaching and coaching.  Many of my students have gone on to become professional musicians which gives me enormous joy!

As well as teaching singing, piano and music theory I am currently in an original band and a duo.
