ADELAIDE, AUSTRALIA + ONLINE

When you choose Elle as your vocal coach, you’re not only getting the expertise of a seasoned performer, but also the knowledge and experience of a voice-specialising Speech Pathologist. This unique combination of extensive singing training, teaching, performance experience, and clinical know-how allows Elle to provide highly-specialised, bespoke voice services for professional Australian and international performers from the music scene and the world of musical theatre.

Elle works exclusively with adult singers on performance-based singing, vocal freedom, and self-confidence. Her lessons aim to strike a balance between the vocal mechanisms of breathing, phonation, and resonance while helping you understand the intricacies of your instrument, so you can eventually become the problem-solver of your own voice! Elle specialises in troubleshooting vocal issues, particularly in belt technique, and employs evidence-based voice rehabilitation strategies to create a sustainable singing voice. She is also a certified clinical vocal massage therapist and combines this into her singing lessons to help out those singers with pesky laryngeal tension. She understands how past negative experiences with singing teachers and performances can affect vocal confidence, and her warm, positive, holistic, and empowering approach will leave you feeling accomplished and supported after every session.

Elle regularly performs and teaches various vocal styles, including contemporary, musical theatre, gospel, R&B, soul, and jazz.
