In Detail

Singing teacher Raelene Bruinsma draws on over twenty years experience as a singing teacher, registered music therapist, singer songwriter storyteller, and the research of Jo Estill to help you develop a singing voice that fits you. Whether you wish to sing for self expression and confidence, overcome a belief that you can't sing, or develop your existing singing/musical skills, she will work with you to develop the skills and strategies to reach your vocal goals. Sometimes students simply wish to apply the techniques and strategies to other styles of performance, and gain assistance on overcoming nervousness.

The process usually begins with an "initial lesson" - 1 hour - where we meet, discuss your goals, do a little singing and discuss some ways in which we might work together to meet those goals.

After this lessons (still 1 hour long) are booked in blocks of four or blocks of six, and are usually taken weekly. A block of six is recommended to begin, as a commitment to six weeks of work on your voice in most cases gives you long enough to notice some progress towards your goals.

Raelene originally trained as a classical singer as part of her Bachelor or Music (therapy) at Mebourne University. Drawn to more individual style of self expression she began writing, recording and performing her own songs at the age of 30, working with teachers such as Kristina Olsen and doing a TAFE course in contemporary music. She also undertook some training in the Vocal Figures developed by Jo Estill to help her understand and master some of the diversity of ways in which the voice can be used. Currently Raelene is doing the finishing touches on a PhD in performance, a research project which involved her in writing and performing songs based on/ and inspired by, some Ancient literature.
