ABOUT THE VOCAL LAB

Welcome to The Vocal Lab ®, a new singing studio founded in 2016, nestled in the beautiful Blue Mountains, Pinehaven, New Zealand. If you are looking for quality vocal lessons in the Hutt Valley, The Vocal Lab is the right place for you.



ABOUT

The Vocal Lab specialises in effective singing methods specifically tailored for vocalists and singer/songwriters of all levels. Our philosophy is based on four principles of study - Physiology, Posture, Breathing and Resonance.

Our lessons are based on proven voice techniques that will advance you in the real world of music, whether you are a seasoned performer stuck inside your comfort zone wanting a change, or an absolute beginner wanting to learn the fundamentals of singing.

We welcome singers of all ages (children aged 10 years and older) and all backgrounds, from beginners through to professionals, whether you have had lessons in the past or not.

“To sing in another language is like travelling to another country,
the perfect way to explore another culture is to sing their songs” ~ Coco Favre.

Distinctive in our teaching methods, we collaborate with a qualified and experienced physiotherapist that is able to assess and assist with physical difficulties (e.g. TMJ/jaw joint problems, jaw and neck stiffness, postural problems, respiratory difficulties, back problems, etc..). All these could be contributing to why you may not be achieving your desired vocal goals.

We offer classes throughout the year, so that you have the flexibility and freedom of a tailored program to meet your unique needs and interests.

The Vocal Lab not only helps you free your voice, we can also record your first demo song in any language you want to! It’s never too late to find your true voice…
“Nothing can replace a one-on-one lesson with an experienced voice teacher to help you focus on tone, pitch, diction and regular scheduled lessons will allow you to work on your goals and see real progress”
Frequently Asked Questions

WHAT DOES A TYPICAL LESSON LOOK LIKE?

Beginners:

Establishing student’s vocal goals, vocal warm-up and foundation in vocal technique; voice physiology, how the voice works, posture, breathing and resonance, exploring music styles and songs, and then working with the student’s song of choice.

Intermediate:

Establishing student’s immediate vocal goals, building upon the fundamentals into a more rigorous training regimen, exploring singing fitness, expanding repertoire (list of songs), developing register continuity and tonal resonance and building range expansion.

Advanced (Active artists and performers):

Establishing student’s immediate vocal needs to prepare for audition purposes or recording, preparation for gigs, or concerts, maintaining vocal health, working on more rigorous warm-ups, vocal technique and establishing singing fitness to sustain voice for prolonged singing settings. We offer recommendations on how to approach things differently to reveal qualities and different textures in your voice that may lie undiscovered.

Bring at least one song (or more) that you like to sing or would like to learn how to sing (on CD, phone or mp3 player). If you don’t have it, don’t worry, we can provide most songs if they are online. If you have no idea what you like, we can help you find the song that suits your voice - and you.

WHAT DO YOU PROVIDE?

We provide all the tools you might need during your lesson, including music (songs and backing tracks), lyrics, pen and paper, spring water, warm tea and a warm and friendly environment to build and maintain a healthy singing voice!
