Taking lessons with Yvonne was the best thing for my music career. Not only does she know her stuff, but she's very caring and supportive of her students. She came to nearly every gig I did and even helped me land performances too.

The techniques she taught me for singing through your mix, belting, and achieving a strong head register are the same techniques I use today and are extremely helpful for all types of singing; Yvonne helped me develop my voice and realise what I wanted to sing, from musical theatre through to indie pop, rock, and folk.

I would not be the musician I am today without her guidance and invaluable teaching.

I improved so much working with Yvonne, I always felt completely comfortable in her studio, and she offered so much support, clarity and warmth in her teaching style.

I would not be the singer, song writer or performer I am today without having had her guidance.

Yvonne has been a huge inspiration to me on so many levels, she has helped me learn to love and embrace my voice and challenge me to see my true potential and reach goals beyond what I thought was impossible.

With her warm, welcoming and fun energy she makes you feel at ease and supported in being your complete and ultimate self during a lesson and on stage.

She is professional, dedicated and with her extensive amount of knowledge in correct vocal tools and technique, vocal placement, stage presence and vocal health she has helped me  grow and build in the confidence I needed to shape me into the artist and performer I am today.

I have learnt so much about my voice over the years. Yvonne has taught me so much more then just correct vocal technique.

She has taught me to follow my dreams, to keep trying, to take every opportunity and beyond. Yvonne teaches in such a fun and different way, she is so encouraging.

Yvonne is now so much more than a vocal coach to me, I know how to use my voice to it’s fullest potential and continue to learn more every time I have a lesson.

My singing journey would never have been as amazing as it has been if I didn’t have Yvonne.

Yvonne is an exceptionally knowledgeable vocal instructor! I found the SLS method incredibly useful when I was working on expanding my range and building my stamina, this has been so helpful when doing multiple shows in a day whilst on tour with my a Cappella group; Drums of War. She is also amazing at looking at a singer as a whole and taught me so much about stage craft and telling stories through song. She is warm and encouraging and makes you feel more confident after each and every lesson. I wouldn't bother seeing any one else in Gippsland!

I started singing with Yvonne when I was only 7 years old. Yvonne has taught me to sing correctly using the right vocal techniques. I'd focused on developing my skills and finding "my own voice".

From my early beginnings, learning basic techniques to now beginning university to become a Music Producer, the skills I learnt with Yvonne are invaluable and essential to any aspiring singer.

Since I started learning with Yvonne, I’ve improved my vocal range and quality, and most of all my confidence.

Yvonne took me out of my ‘comfort zone’ and I’m hitting higher notes that I thought I simply wasn’t able to do.

Working with Yvonne is a pleasure because although she has been teaching and performing for a long time, and is very experienced, she also still loves it. I have always felt very unsure about my singing and since starting with Yvonne, her encouraging attitude and diverse teaching methods have given me much more confidence.
