How it ALL began...

When I Was 5 Years Old...

…I saw a guy playing piano on TV and I fell in love… thus began my lifelong love affair with music!

There were several obstacles that initially stopped me in my pursuit of music. The biggest one being the need to ‘make it big’ in the corporate world to gain my parents’ and society’s approval. When I almost sold my soul and health to one of the Big 4 accounting firms, I knew that something needed to change.

I took the plunge in April 2004, leaving the corporate world and, in pursuit of my calling, I began work in music retail, facilitated music education programs for kids in pre-schools, taught piano and voice programs in primary schools, founded and conducted acapella groups and choirs, directed music/creative departments in large contemporary churches, and above all, I deep-dived into studying and teaching voice.

Now, I’ve had the amazing privilege to impact over 100,000 singers across 50 countries to help them sing confidently and to find the joy in their own unique voice.  I’ve done this through one-on-one coaching, group workshops, my online singing programs,  webinars and The Songbird Tree YouTube channel

I’ve been so privileged to have been able to coach Songbirds from all around the globe! 

My professional training spans over 10 years and includes a diverse range of techniques and styles including Bel Canto/Opera, Estill, Speech Level Singing, Musical Theatre (with world renowned Broadway Singing Coach Mary Saunders-Barton), Pop & Jazz. I absolutely love being a choir and vocal director and also perform regularly as a professional singer enjoying belting out a Broadway and Disney tune or two!

The Vision - why I do what i do

get Grounded, Take flight... And SING!

I get it, you doubt yourself every day.  “Am I good enough?  Do I have what it takes to learn to sing?  Am I just wasting my time?”

Well here’s the truth, it doesn’t matter what ‘level’ you are at.  You may have a full time job doing something completely unrelated to singing, or limit your singing to the safety of your shower, or you only sing in a choir or at church, or maybe you’re a full time pro. It doesn’t matter. The point is if you WANT to sing and you LOVE to sing, then you have an inner Songbird that NEEDS to be set free!

I’m here to help you find and release your inner Songbird!  Your Voice! And Your Confidence!

YOU, Songbird, are the reason why I get up in the morning and do what I do!  YOU are the reason I created The Songbird Tree.

Because helping everyday people find their voice is transformative… 

Because when you find your voice as a singer, you will find inner confidence as a human being…  

And when you find inner confidence as a human being, you show up fully alive

And when you’re fully alive you will change the world!

Transform Your Voice, Transform Your Life... Transform the World!
