- Do you have a personal message for students?

I tailor singing lessons to each students specific requirements. Each students lesson plan will vary slightly according to what areas need more attention. Lessons are based around the core rules of singing correctly (technique) - using your diaphragm, controlling your breathing, working through the vocal break and aligning the voice, working on pitch & tone and many other exercises that will help you develop the unique qualities of your voice. Once you have learned the fundamental skills to singing correctly, you can then apply them to any singing style you wish!

As a vocal coach, I've taught just about everyone, just about everywhere — from drama students to seasoned professionals, in studios and classrooms, on stage and on sand dunes (true story). I also coach students preparing for Music / Theatre / Arts colleges, concert platforms and international competitions. They tend to do pretty well!

“I first embarked on singing lessons with Marika after experiencing symptoms of vocal fatigue due to a seriously demanding performance schedule. As a singer / songwriter with my own band, I found Marika's vocal knowledge invaluable in how to sustain vocal endurance through solid technique – absolute gold dust when touring and gigging under all kinds of conditions, and try to get refresher sessions in whenever I can. Thank you Marika!”

Marika is really positive and encouraging a singing teacher. I have had several singing teachers before and none have encouraged me to throw myself into my singing as well as Marika has. I think this is why I'm seeing results in just 3 lessons! I would recommend her to singers of any level looking for a teacher. She's a fab teacher and different in her approach - give her a try!

Marika, you are such a force of nature and an inspiration. Thank you!!!
