A Note From Tania
Hi and thanks for stopping by my site!
I am a self-confessed vocal nerd and my aim is quite simple - vocal freedom.
I equip vocalists and voice users of all ages and levels with the tools needed for optimum vocal function aka vocal freedom. Vocal freedom enables aspiring and professional singers and artists to be more creative due to having more control and choices over their instrument.
After many years of singing lessons with various teachers, I found myself more confused than when I had started. The frustrations and limitations I had with my own singing forced me to seek out more information. I wanted to know HOW and WHY my voice was doing what it was doing. I wanted to have the ability to control it when performing. I wanted to improve my range, change my tone and be more versatile in singing different styles and I wanted to do all of this without the feeling of vocal fatigue.
Through many years ongoing mentoring with various Estill Voice Model Certified Teachers and as a Authorised Instructor of Vocology In Practice (VIP) my approach with my own vocal technique and coaching is based on the ever evolving field of voice science, aka VOCOLOGY with vocal health being a priority. There is nothing more exciting to me than watching my singers and artists go through their vocal and musical journey.
If you would love to see what your voice can do then feel free to contact me for your Vocal Assessment.
What they say.....
"Tania is an incredible supporter of music and art.
You really have to admire someone who is willing to dedicate their life into helping others find their voice and Tania does this with such grace. Her studio in Adelaide has helped so many artists find their true voice, providing an open platform available for every singer and musician who is eager to create."
‘ I was told that I would never sing again.’
Those words put fear into me many years ago after a voice operation went wrong. In time, I would learn to talk, laugh and yes sing again but with a limited vocal range that had me becoming more of a Blues and Jazz singer. However, there were so many songs out there I was missing out on because I just couldn’t reach those high notes. I attempted to have singing lessons in the ensuing years but once teachers found out about my problem I was dropped or not taken on at all.
Then along came Tania! I attended a five week course that she facilitated and for once a singing professional welcomed me in instead of showing me the door. Through Tania’s expertise, patience and incredible talent to teach, she worked with me and in a few short lessons I could sing the high notes! They were there and with the right training just came right out. I am proof that you can come back from vocal damage but you have to do the work. Tania could only take me so far, the rest was up to me.

" Tania is an exceptional teacher, mentor and now friend.
She has helped me improve my vocal quality and strength and I could not be more thankful! She has given me tips, exercises and advice that I will use going forward. "
- Claudia Migliaccio Singer/Songwriter
I came to Tania with little confidence, virtually no vocal technique and a goal to record vocals for an entire album that would be assessed by university lecturers.
As we went through our sessions together, my aptitude began to grow rapidly and I slowly found confidence to sing in front of others. Then to be able to have Tania at my side, whilst I was recording final vocals in the studio was an invaluable experience. She could guide me as I recorded each track, making sure that not only the technique, but the performance was also at a level that the track needed. Looking back, I can safely say that without Tania, my album never would have reached the level of professionalism needed to reward me with a high distinction.
- Sam Diwell, Musician, Producer & Songwriting Coach
"Tania is an absolute godsend for voice users. She's consulted on most of my clients and has dramatically improved their vocal health and performance, which is an absolute necessity for any musician trying to make it in the industry.
I've also worked with her one on one for my own vocals and would gladly recommend her to anyone wanting to improve their vocal performance. Her knowledge of vocal physiology and technique is second to none and she is incredibly easy to work with."
- Kelly Breuer | Singer/Songwriter & Music Industry Coach
" After having Tania as my vocal instructor temporarily, as part of my formal music course at TAFE SA, I was blown away by her knowledge and skills within music and her singing abilities and knew I had to continue private sessions with her. She has helped me immensly with my confidence. understanding techniques to enhance natural parts of my voice and learning new ones to access and develop new parts of my voice.
Tania has a lot of patience and made me feel relaxed which helped me grasp techniques when I sometimes felt I couldn't "get it". I know her teaching has noticeably improved my voice, in only one year of having sessions with her. I would definitely be continuing with her, if I had not been accepted into a Bachelor Of Music Performance at Box Hill Tafe in Melbourne."
- Ivy Stone | Singer/Songwriter |
Vocal tuition with Tania has completely changed the way I approach singing. She doesn’t just teach students about pitch and singing in tune. She conveys an enormous understanding of vocal health, the anatomy & physiology of the voice, and provides her students with techniques that teach how to use the voice in a complete, healthy and holistic way. Tania is the perfect balance between professional and approachable which is what any student wants in their teacher.
- Deborah Brennan | Cabaret Performer & Music Educator
" Tania as a vocalist is just one of those top tier talents.
I would highly recommend Tania to anyone valuing good work ethics and the sort of personal touch we only sometimes encounter.
I certainly look forward to working with her into the future."
