Georgia Gray Singing Teacher About Lessons

Who am I?

Kia ora, I'm Georgia. It's nice to meet you!

Bonjour! I’m Georgia, Voice Coach at GL Voice. I’m from the small country with a big heart on the other side of the world – New Zealand. You only have to talk to me for a few seconds to learn this, I haven’t lost my accent! Here are a few things about me:

I've been singing since before I could talk. I trained as a classical singer, but I love all genres of music.

I moved to France for love. I'm a hopeless romantic and my favourite occasion to perform for is weddings! I still perform for special occasions, despite teaching full time.

Je parle français thanks to a French degree, a French husband, and nearly a decade in this beautiful country!

I love meeting new people, getting to know your stories, and helping you to gain confidence in your singing

My story

I moved to Paris for love, and found my dream career was right under my nose

Like many expats in Paris, mine has not been a straightforward story. I was a twenty-something Kiwi (New Zealander) singer who moved to Paris in the summer of 2015 for love. I arrived speaking the language thanks to a French degree, but I didn’t know anyone, and had no clear idea of what I wanted to do. Initially, I studied singing privately, but after a year I realised that my priorities had changed and I no longer wanted that career path. 

Sounding familiar? It turns out it’s pretty common to reinvent yourself in the city of light! It sounds glamorous but of course it’s not that simple. However, through the support of my now-husband and some wonderful friends and teachers, I came to the realisation that I needed to be teaching singing ; that this was my true dream. 

In 2017 I opened Georgia Gray Voice Studio, and in 2018 I switched to teaching full time. It has been a huge adventure so far, full of challenges but also full of so much joy. I feel so privileged to work with my students and help them gain confidence as singer.

You can read more about my story at Our Paris Stories, where I was interviewed about how I ended up in Paris and what I do here.

Georgia About Why I Teach

Why I teach

I believe everyone can sing. 

Not everyone wants to sing – and that’s ok! But those who do want to sing, should, and can. 

My job is to help people who want to sing, who love to sing, gain confidence in their voices. Thanks to my background in classical singing, I have a deep understanding of how the voice works, and I know how to explain it in a way that you can understand, no matter what you do or don’t already know. 

My goal as a singing teacher is to make singing technique and understanding the voice accessible to everyone. I want to allow my students to sing the music they love, whether that be musical theatre, pop, jazz, rock, or opera, and everything else in between. No matter what you are singing, the voice is still the same instrument, and works the same way.

Finally – and most importantly – it’s immensely important to me that my studio is a safe, encouraging, and warm environment to experiment and evolve in. I care about my students, what their story is, and where they’ve come from, and how that affects their singing.
