Singing training with Kathleen Connell

Learn the right techniques to confidently sing a range of styles

What to expect in a lesson

First, Kathleen assesses where you and your voice are at, any vocal problems to work on, and your singing goals. Then, she creates your individualised program for how to get you there. Using the latest singing methods, Kathleen helps you:

  • Achieve flexible breathing technique and good posture
  • Transition between head and chest voice
  • Build resonance
  • Gain pitch accuracy
  • Extend your vocal range
  • Choose songs that meet your needs and suit your voice
  • Tackle nerves and performance anxiety
  • Repair poor singing habits
  • Tell stories through song

Most singing lessons start with breathing technique and vocal exercises, then working on your chosen repertoire.

Studio and online singing programs

Flexible learning with face-to-face and online singing lessons.
Whether you’re starting out or more advanced, choose from 4 training packages from single classes to 5 and 10-week blocks.

Singing exams

Singers presenting for exam systems regularly turn to Kathleen as they prepare for HSC exams, or as candidates for International Exams and especially for the highly regarded AMEB exams. Outstanding results are a feature.


Learn performance skills

Our studio holds 1 concert per year. Singers set their sights on this concert, which is well attended and our established accompanist works with singers in preparation. Instrumentalists also may accompany our singers. At other times workshops assist singers with performance skills. Singers also seek performance events throughout the city and regions.

The Studio Concert is a delightful collaboration amongst family, friends and students of Kathleen. The warmth, camaraderie and support are heartfelt. It is a community of people who love music and singing, and able to share and experience this joy. – Celine
