  • You are ready to push through your anxiety, improve your confidence, presence and public speaking skills (step into your vocal power)

  • You are already a powerful performer but you are looking to step up to that next level maybe secure that part in ( a musical/show) or blow them out of the water at your next audition (of the voice) or have more range and power in your voice

  • You have finally got the courage to do something new and exciting for yourself

  • A significant life event finally pushed you to explore outside your comfort zone

  • You used to sing before but your career or kids got in the way and now you want to bring it back into focus

Raving Students

Emma is easy going, extremely supportive, and is a great teacher, She really knows her stuff! and creates a real safe and fun space to learn and express yourself, let that awesome voice out you may have been hiding!

Paul Telling

Other than a love for singing and music, I had pretty much no experience as a singer prior to starting with Emma 2 years ago, she has completely transformed my abilities as a singer and performer. Emma coached me through my HSC Music I course helping strengthen my vocal technique, stage presence, song choices to suit and enrich my voice and style and also connected me with amazing musicians. One of the most valuable things Emma helped me overcome was my performance anxiety and nerves as she taught me how to communicate with the audience and have fun on stage. Nothing seems to be off the cards or out of Emma’s reach when it comes to new and creative ideas, and the concerts she hosts for her singing students are always so fun, and everyone has a go in such a fun environment. Throughout the HSC I’ve seen my performance and vocal abilities improve from coming last in my class to now achieving a band 6 (highest band) and an incredibly high rank within my class. Singing with Emma has completely widened my scope, perception and technique as a singer and I have felt myself develop a more unique style and an even greater love for singing, music and performing.

Alex Gouskas

My daughter was 7 years old when she started lessons with Emma Deans. I searched high and low for a teacher that would be guided by my daughter’s interests and unique ideas. I hit the jackpot with Emma. She’s been terrific in helping Deme become the burgeoning performer she desires to be. The concerts are always heartwarming and showcase all ages and all abilities of students in the singing school. Deme started working with Luke when she was 11 years old. He brings the best out in her by making her feel comfortable while getting her to work hard at the same time. I recommend Emma Deans Sings to anyone, any age.

Emma (Dems Mum)

Emma teaches my nine-year-old daughter, Saskia. Saskia absolutely adores her weekly lesson. Emma has taken her a long way in one year. The environment is relaxed and supportive, but the lessons are also aimed at extending and challenging students. The concerts are a great way to see what the students have achieved and give them the chance to perform. Highly recommended.

Taras 

Emma is proof that singing is something that can be learned! She has made an amazing difference with my son (age 13), not only with his singing voice, but also his confidence. What I love most about Emma is that she is able to see and nurture to fruition the best in a person’s abilities. My son loves his singing lessons with Emma, and it is quite amazing to see how far along he has come in such a short period of time.

Our Philosophy

We Believe In…

Supportive Stretching

In order to get better you must be pushed lovingly outside your comfort zone. We tell it like it is and will stretch you to be the singer you want to be. We believe in telling you the truth even when you may not be ready to hear it. You will grow faster and get on stage sooner!

Learning to Perform & Performing to Learn

To become a better singer… Faster… You must perform. Performing is the equivalent of having 6 singing lessons! When you are going to be on stage in front of family and friends you don’t leave things to the night before like your school/ university projects. You push yourself, you practice, you learn your lyrics! You grow in confidence and your comfort zone grows with every performance.

Fun

We know singing can be daunting and fearful so the antidote to that is to have lots of fun, good cheer and laughter in your lessons. Fun with great vocal technique equals an awesome lesson!

The Student Comes First

Our school isn’t about the teachers and their experience or performing (Though we are extremely proud of them and they all have truly beautiful voices! And are impeccable teachers!) What resonates with us and makes us warm and fuzzy inside is you our students and seeing your progress, growth and what you can do in your time with us. Seeing you become a great performer, hearing your beautiful voice become stronger, more powerful and you transforming into a confident happy person.

Developing You For Life As Well As On Stage

Most of you, our students, are kids to young adults. We take great passion in developing you into powerful, confident young people. Knowing who you are, having self-awareness and a strong voice that is heard. Through growing your confidence as a singer you will be more comfortable in your body, be listened to more, have greater mindfulness and presence and everything you learn will make a difference to your personal life.

Anyone Who Can Speak Can Sing

It is as simple as that. If you can speak you are able to sing. In fact most of the time when we learn a new song we start by speaking it through to the music.

Exploration Helps You Find Your Own Style

We help you explore your voice and musical style by opening you up to many different genres and eras of music. Ones that you may have not even heard of. Our university qualified teachers also help you explore even more deeply into the music. This builds a strong broadly explored platform for you to bounce off and become a well-rounded singer. Finding your own sound, style and character one that is uniquely your own.

Our Teachers Are All Professional Performers…

Luke Antony
My name is Luke Pickler and I am a Vocal coach originally from North Qld.  I left my full time teaching role and moved to Sydney 4.5 years ago and have since been free lancing as a singer/vocal coach.
As a singer I have had contemporary vocal training for 7 years and studied vocal pedagogy under QLD Conservatorium of Music graduate, Tracey Osmond (Abbeyroad, The Voice Singing School).  I have an understanding of, and have been taught the various methods and terminologies of Voice Craft and SLS, of which I have found very useful and efficient in my teaching.  I have a wealth of both live and studio experience to share with my students, and have also attended various vocal workshops run by the likes of Katrina Ryan –Seargant (E-Type Jazz), ANATS and Dr. Irene Bartlett (Head of contemporary vocal at The Conservatorium), with whom I also did lesson observation of undergrad vocal students.
 On top of my strong technique based teaching experience I also understand the importance of creating a fun and memorable lesson for the student each week – whatever their age or skill level.  Because at the end of the day, everyone deserves to feel like a rock star!
Chris Luder

Chris is a singer, songwriter and vocal producer. After spending years touring the world with children’s super-group: The Wiggles, he came into further public view as a Top 12 finalist on the hit TV show: Australian Idol

These days, when Chris isn’t backing iconic artists such as Marcia Hines, he spends his time writing and producing. Notching up hits on both the Australian and UK charts, as well as proudly coaching the winner of The Voice AU 2016.

Matched with his soulful, polished vocals, Chris’ ability to instantly create live mash-ups has made him one of the most in-demand vocalists in Australia. Playing regularly for thousands of party people, as well as superstars like Diplo and Aloe Blacc.

With a huge repertoire of songs from old school favourites to the freshest tracks on the charts, Chris moves effortlessly between genres, creating a live sound that is exciting and infectiously entertaining. This quickly lead to him being booked as Hed Kandi’s resident Australian male vocalist, playing to club crowds both locally and internationally.

With a truly unique approach, Chris is now making his mark as both a writer and vocal producer, working with heavyweights such as Ministry of Sound, Universal Music, The Freemasons and Elysian Records. Whether performing as a vocalist, songwriter, coach or choreographer, Chris fills up the room with a genuine ease and natural talent that is both irresistible and undeniable.

 

Tara Del Borrello

Tara Del Borrello is a professional Pop/Soul singer with a dynamic performing style. At 16 years old, Tara achieved a spot in the top 30 of Australian Idol where she made the decision to pursue a career in music. Since completing a Bachelor or Music (Jazz) at the Western Australian Academy of Performing Arts (WAAPA), Tara has established herself as a highly sought after performer within Sydney’s live music scene, both publically and corporately. With her powerhouse vocals and ability to connect with people on and off the stage, Tara has forged her reputation as a formidable performer.

As a singing teacher, Tara is passionate about sharing her skills and experiences to help the young singer become the best performer they can be. Focusing on good vocal health, singing and breathing techniques, performance skills and microphone technique, Tara believes in tailoring lessons to the needs of the individual. With over 5 years of teaching experience, Tara has honed her skills as a versatile teacher with real world experience in the music industry.

Tara is currently studying a Master of Creative Music Therapy, where she will extend her music abilities beyond performing and teaching, to help people in need.

Emma Deans

Seeking out the training to accompany her passion, Emma took private lessons throughout her teens, going to anyone who could teach her something new. The desire to share what she was learning soon became overwhelming, and she began giving her own classes from the age of 18, continuing to teach throughout her degree in performance at the University of Western Sydney. The techniques she absorbed during that time – including classical and music theatre technique, Alexander technique, forward technique, speech level singing, improvisation techniques and performance and anxiety training – enabled her to develop a distinctive style as a vocal coach, and develop a unique series of workshops, focused not just on how people sound, but on how we all “perform” in our everyday and working lives. As a result Emma has been asked to work closely with a range of organisations and initiatives, from large companies in the corporate sector to youth groups from disadvantaged backgrounds, combining her passion and expertise to achieve inspirational results, whether it be lifting profits and refining the skills of sales people or filling young hearts with fire and self-belief.

In 2005 a fun experiment with 3 of Emma’s friends from University led to the formation of an acapella group called “Kaya” for a TV talent audition. The all-girl group quickly became a national sensation, making it through to the final stages of the show (4th place on X Factor) and embarking on a series of sold out concerts across the country. Emma soon found herself living the life of a busy musician, with frequent appearances on ABC radio and collaborations with artists like Jimmy Cliff, Renee Geyer, Lior, John Butler and Human Nature. She has recently returned from her first series of shows in New York, including a showcase for The Lumiphonic Creature Choir at the Union Square pavilion in Manhattan, and is set to release her debut record as a solo artist later this year.
