Philosophy

The compelling nature of expressing one's true self is invaluable to Blake, whether that be through song and storytelling, or just being heard, finding self-worth and value in oneself.

This is the number one goal in Blake's vocal lessons, and it is achieved through growing one's skill set, nurturing one's talent and building one's confidence.

It's about personal growth; it's more than just singing better, but being better too.

Anatomy of a lesson

I

The performing voice is an extension of the speaking voice. We will discuss habits and together construct a new approach to the overall outlook of your instrument.

II

Nutrition and hydration play a critcial role in the vitality and resilience of vocal production; guidelines and general rule-of-thumb ideas will be reviewed.

III

Voice physiology is the driver for repetitive high-quality performance and longevity. Preparing for an upcoming stage role relies on the understanding of what your body requires and how to keep it operating safely and securely.

IV

Songs are stories and you are the story-teller. Deciphering song content and deriving meaning is a skill. Together we will find the deeper reasons behind what and why we sing, as this is the cornerstone to great performances!

V

Previous tuition and medical limitations will be included in consideration of lesson structures. Confidentiality, integrity and mutual respect are the foundation of these sessions.

Hear the benefits from a voice like your own

Learning under Blake’s expert tutelage has been immensely enjoyable and informative. His knowledgeable and personable teaching style have helped me, a nervous absolute beginner, on my King’s Speech-esque singing journey.

William Thompson, Aspiring Artist

Blake is certainly the most competent singing teacher I’ve ever had. He is highly technically competent and well-trained, an outstanding performer in his own right, and a brilliant communicator. He adapts his teaching to each student’s voice, needs, and comfort levels, with a holistic perspective of our external lives. He is infinitely kind and patient, but doesn’t hesitate to correct or increase difficulty/challenge.

As a transgender student, he has been receptive to the very particular physiological struggles, and in line with the rest of his pedagogy, is both technically and personally conscious in his communication.

100% blessed by Blake’s teaching.

Axel

I spent a lot of time looking for a vocal coach, going through a series of one off lessons. 15 minutes into my first lesson with Blake it was clear he was the right fit for me. With an extensive knowledge on the anatomy of the voice, he allows you to visualise both the sound and the placement. It is truly a unique and effective way of teaching. He accommodated for my visual way of learning through physical and imaginative exercises. I went away from every lesson wanting more. Thanks Blake!

– Rocco

From the first lesson with Blake I have been very happy. Each lesson he challenges me and pushes me to be better with clear and helpful notes on how to achieve the best technique and sound whilst maintaining my vocal health. From methods I had not been shown before, to refining practices I already had in place and in depth ways to control my breath and stamina, he has taught me a lot in the few short months I have been seeing him.

I very much look forward to working with him into the future and continuing to hone the craft. I highly suggest booking an appointment if you’re starting out, or if you feel your practice has plateaued and you want to take it to the next level.

Michael Camilleri (Evita 2018, Moulin Rouge (Paris), Norwegian Cruise Lines)

Blake is a superstar! Not only is he kind and compassionate, but he is an incredible vocal coach! I’ve had years of vocal training but nothing like what Blake has taught. His unique style of teaching is unlike anything I’ve ever experienced. I would highly recommend Blake.

David Taylor, Singer/Songwriter, Recording Artist

I came to Blake because my voice was getting tired too easily and I had lost some of my top range, so I wanted to learn how to sing in a healthier way. Blake has done absolute wonders for my voice and has really helped me break bad habits and sing better than I ever have before. I couldn’t recommend him more!

Allie

Right from my first singing lesson with Blake, I started to hear my voice in a whole new way. I’ve since become much more attuned to the physical processes that happen during singing. Now I feel more in control of my voice than I ever have. As an actor, this gives me the freedom to make better choices based on character and storytelling.

Tabitha Woo, Theatre Maker/Writer

We went to Blake to prepare my son Liam to audition for high school singing scholarships. Liam loved singing with Blake and in a short time made huge improvements to his technique. He did indeed gain a scholarship,
Thank you Blake!

Bill

I came across Blake’s website when I was searching for a new voice teacher and I am so glad that I did! I have a very strong back ground in Musical Theatre and have been taking voice lessons since the age of 8. I am now 28 and have had well over 9 voice teachers throughout my career. Blake is without a doubt the best vocal teacher I have ever had.

Blake explains functionality of the voice coupled with breath in a way I’ve never experienced. He puts two and two together and helps his singers understand what they need to do in order to produce their natural sound.

Blake is incredibly talented. He is an active teacher, always on his feet; in the moment with you. He truly believes in his students and their progress and he is very reliable. He has a large repertoire of music, which keeps lessons fresh and fun. I always leave his studio feeling empowered, more confident, and excited for the next lesson. Blake really loves what he does. It is very apparent that his work is his passion. Being a young teacher, Blake is in tune with the newest trends and science of the voice and breath. He brings refreshingly new techniques that get results quickly!

If you’re comparing voice teachers and not sure who to pick…take it from me, you will not be disappointed with Blake!
