Private Music Tuition » Singing Lessons
Natalie Claire Woodcock offers private singing lessons to adults and teens at her Engadine music studio. She teaches students preparing for HSC/AMEB exams, adults learning for fun and advanced singers wanting to perfect their technique and prepare for professional work.
Natalie is an experienced professional performer who has a working knowledge of the music industry which is a great asset to her singing students. She also has a wealth of qualifications and experience in music education and vocal pedagogy. Natalie teaches her students what the vocal world may demand of them, and how they can maintain a healthy and long career.
The vocal tuition is individually designed to cater to each singer's vocal needs. Students learn how to protect their voice, improve pitch and tone, extend vocal range and develop breath and vocal control. Songs are used that suit each singer's skill level, vocal type and interests.
Natalie’s goal is to train students to properly to access all colours of their voice in a healthy functional way. Advanced students can eventually develop the skills to cross-over and perform legitimately in various styles. Eg, sing a strong belt in a big musical theatre song, sing jazz or perform a classical aria.
Natalie has taught vocal technique for performance speaking (eg drama/public speaking/teachers suffering vocal fatigue). She has also had students with speech impediments who have needed vocal training to improve their lisp or stutter.
Achievements by Natalie's singing students include securing roles in professional musicals such as the Sound of Music, successful auditions for professional work such as Cruise Line Entertainer, acceptance into tertiary singing courses such as WAPPA, Conservatorium of Music and AIM, finalists in Eisteddfods such as McDonalds Sydney Eisteddfod, Band 6 for HSC Music and A+ for AMEB exams.

"Our daughter was initially a member of the Performing Choir and later the Teen Voices. She thoroughly enjoyed the experiences of weekly rehearsals, and then gained confidence in public performances and concerts. This year she has undertaken private tuition with Natalie. Natalie has not only developed Kaelin's singing ability but has also contributed to a much higher level of self-confidence. We would recommend Natalie without hesitation."
