Sutherland Shire 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 or uni exams, adults learning for fun and advanced singers wanting to perfect their technique and prepare for professional work.

Natalie is a lifelong learner of vocal pedagogy so she can strive to be the best teacher she can be for my students. Natalie will help you build on what’s natural, what’s working, identify where you need development and create pathways for building a voice powered by balance and healthy function.

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 is an experienced professional performer who has a working knowledge of the music industry which is a great asset to her singing students.  Natalie teaches her students what the vocal world may demand of them, and how they can maintain a healthy and long career. Lessons are holistic including practical elements relevant to you such as stagecraft, performance anxiety and strategies, improvisation, microphone technique and performance career guidance.

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. Recent 2018 achievements of Natalie's private singing students: received role of 'Katie' in professional Sydney production of 'School of Rock- the Musical', full scholarship to Danebank college (due to music application), 50% scholarship to Inaburra School (due to music application) and winner of 'Sydney Eisteddfod Musical Theatre Under 9's 2018'. 



"Natalie has provided my daughter with wonderful opportunities to enjoy what she loves - to sing and perform. She has also provided inspiration and encouragement to allow her to challenge herself and develop into a confident young women who is willing to move out of her comfort zone and try new things."

"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."
