2015 – Singers, Stage Presence and good solid Sound Advice

Whether you are in the market for some ‘sound advice’ or just want a day of sharing the joy of singing, the inaugural fundraiser of Australian National Association of Singing Teachers (ANATS) is for you.

‘Sound Advice’ on Sunday 26th April is an event which will raise funds to support singers and singing teachers with  the cost of overseas study. Not only will it benefit the recipients of future study grants, but it will also help to grow our talent and our industry when they return back home.

The event is not limited to fundraising, it’s an opportunity to understand  how to get the most out of  sound equipment, no matter what your style of performance, and then to have an afternoon of fun  with a concert purely for the joy of singing.  It’s open to anyone who loves to sing no matter what age or level of experience.

Please check out all the details here and don’t hesitate to get in touch with our friends at ANATS if you have any questions (all contact info is on the brochure).

mythbusting… mixed with a giggle


We stumbled across this entertaining read by Kristie Knickerbocker, MS, CCC-SLP.

Kristie is a speech-language pathologist and singing voice specialist in Fort Worth, Texas and writes a regular blog for  the American Speech-Language-Hearing Association.

Whether you are a speech pathologist, singer, vocal performer…or  just someone who is interested in the application of science in the everyday world …have a read, and just maybe you will learn how to respond to some of the myths about how to manage your voice.


…and here we go again…

social media with WVD


We’re warming up the vocal folds and preparing for another huge World Voice Day.

The countdown is just beginning so it’s time to start thinking about how YOU will spread the word that ‘Voice Matters’.

You could think about organising ~ Community concerts, singing classes, clinic open days, professional forums, competitions or drama events…..whatever suits you  you!

Like the theme suggests, voice IS the original social media, so let’s go viral and ‘start spreading the news’ that World Voice Day is just around the corner.
