VocaLab Singing Studio

Want private singing lessons?

VocaLab Singing Studio provides professional and amateur singers with a unique and holistic coaching experience through an interdisciplinary approach, combining Speech Pathology practice with vocal coaching. Pretty cool hey?

At VocaLab we work to get you results with the highest efficiency by combining clinical voice evaluations (by our Founder & Speech Pathologist, Elle Nichelle), evidence-based practice and over a decades worth of singing teaching experience. Every new VocaLab student has their initial singing lesson with Elle. In your initial lesson Elle discusses with you your vocal goals, assesses your voice, gives recommendations, and writes up an individualised plan for your assigned VocaLab Vocal Coach to follow.

All of our instructors have been trained in the VocaLab Method with a strong focus on building a sustainable voice and encouraging self-confidence; meeting you where you are at and building on your vocal successes, no matter how small. Simply put, we want you to finish each lesson feeling really good about yourself and your voice.

When you choose to work with Elle you get the unique experience of working with a vocal coach who also has the knowledge & experience of a voice-specialising Speech Pathologist!

Elle continues to work as a private vocal coach through the VocaLab Singing Studio based in Hillcrest, South Australia and online (Thursday only). She works exclusively with adult clients focusing on performance-based singing, vocal freedom and self-confidence.

A lesson with Elle focuses on creating balance between the vocal mechanisms of breathing, phonation and resonance and helping you understand how your voice functions. She specialises in troubleshooting vocal issues (especially belt) and utilises evidence-based Speech Pathology voice rehabilitation to help you create a sustainable singing voice. She also recognises how past negative experiences with singing teachers and performances can have a debilitating effect on your vocal-confidence. Elle is warm, positive, holistic and empowering, and you will leave each lesson feeling accomplished and supported.

Musically, Elle has an extensive knowledge of genres (contemporary, jazz, musical theatre, r&b, soul and rock). She works with professional vocalists and amateur vocalists to prepare for auditions, performances and gigs. This includes vocal care before and after shows and how to advocate for your voice in a workplace. She also consults on business and brand building.

However, if you are happy to work our other VocaLab trained Vocal Coaches, book in for your initial appointment today! Elle will still be involved in your voice journey, as she takes all initial appointments, assesses your voice, writes up your individualised vocal plan targeting your vocal goals and runs through this with your VocaLab vocal coach to ensure you get the full VocaLab experience!
