Self confidence through singing
Corinne started lessons with me in April 2018. She has grown hugely in her self confidence both as a singer as a person through her lessons. It has been a joy to watch her become more confident and feel comfortable asserting herself and feeling free to speak up and use her voice. She has been kind enough to share her story with me to share with you! Here it is:
Student testimony: Corinne
“I met Georgia through Rock U, where I had joined a band. She gave a workshop there on “Vocal Health and the Five Pillars of Singing” which showed us some approaches to learning a song for performing. I really liked her approach to teaching the workshop, which included some theory – at an accessible level – and some examples, followed by exercises to try out the concepts.
I had only sung in a chorale before, but I decided to take private voice lessons in order to learn more technique and be better able to ‘own the stage’ when singing a song on my own.
Georgia is a lovely person to work with, very encouraging, and she uses a lot of different techniques to work on weak spots, extend range and skills, and bolster confidence.
My favourite song that we worked on is “Autumn” by Edgar Winter, which I learned ‘for myself’. It’s a song I love, and after really learning the score, I feel like I own it! I even rewrote the lyrics and sang it at a wedding celebration for the bride and groom – definitely a huge first for me!
Singing lessons have helped my self confidence in general and have encouraged me to adopt a ‘diva’ approach at times to make sure I voice my needs in group situations.”

Do you feel like you don’t really know how to warm up your voice to sing and so you generally skip a warm up? Like, you know you should probably do something, like some hums or sirens, but you’re not sure what to do? You know your singing practice goes better when you are warmed up first, but you don’t know how to do it by yourself? Let me help! […]
How long has it been since you last sang? The longer we go without doing it, the harder it feels to get back into singing after a long break. No worries! I can help!
Confidence is a tricky thing. Confidence doesn’t come easily to everyone and certainly isn’t something that can just spring up inside you overnight. Building confidence, whether in yourself, your singing, or in other domains, takes time, patience, and effort.
