Singers and actors
Bravery. Vulnerability. Creativity.
Who are you? What do you want?
And how will you get it?
I'm an acting and vocal coach based in Melbourne, Victoria. I teach all ages and skill levels and I specialise in music theatre. I love an indoor plant and a cup of tea.
I want my students to excel. I ask my students for bravery, imagination, creativity, and vulnerability. In return, I will be your biggest fan. I will challenge you, support you and give you the tools to become the performer you want to be.
How? I've trained as a triple threat my entire life. I have a BA (Music Theatre) from WAAPA, a Cert IV Performing Arts and I've studied at the Neil Semer Vocal Institute in Germany. I've completed courses in anatomy, physiology, acoustics and resonance and I'm currently completing the Voice Teacher Certification with New York Vocal Coaching.
You could say I'm a little obsessed.
Vocal Technique and Performance
Vocal technique is like the paint in your paintbox. The more technique you have, the more choices you can make in your interpretation of a song. I am passionate about giving you all of the tools so you can explore your artistry without limitations.
Just starting out? We'll do foundational work like pitch, breathing and register development.
More advanced? We'll work on techniques like balancing airflow and compression, larynx control and extending your range safely.
Erin is an incredible vocal coach, I can’t recommend her more highly. She creates a safe, nurturing environment while pushing me beyond what I consider to be my limits. Erin is the only vocal coach I’ve worked with who has taken the time to understand my needs, and worked her lessons around them. I always leave motivated, inspired and excited by what I’ve achieved.
Working with Erin after graduating WAAPA was a hugely beneficial experience. Erin helped me navigate the professional audition circuit as well as assisted me in developing a diverse and mature repertoire folder. Without those developments and a greater understanding of my voice technically, I know I wouldn't have had the successful career I've had so far.
Erin Kennedy is a passionate and dedicated singing teacher who understands the individual needs of each student. I have worked with her frequently, focusing specifically on my high belt range, and her support has been invaluable. She has helped me to better understand my voice and produce a safer sound and increased my vocal range. I fully endorse this excellent lady!
I've been a triple threat performer for over 15 years. I've performed lead and supporting roles in touring musicals. I've worked on cruise ships, in theme parks and in cabaret. If its singing and dancing, I've probably done it!
