Welcome

Want to learn to sing without strain and without breaks in the voice? Want to learn to expand your vocal range, and resolve issues with breathing, power, support and volume? Want to learn how to MIX? Sounds too good to be true? Well… the IVA vocal technique produces an effortless, powerful, and expressive voice and gives you a solid understanding of your voice and how to get the best out of it.

Claire McCartin is the only Maltese certified to teach the IVA technique. Her main aim is to transform lives through effective vocal and performance tuition, whether your goal is to sing in church, audition for a play, learn to speak correctly, be the next X-Factor winner, or have professional aspirations … or even just to sing better in the shower! She aims to bring out the best in all her students and equip them with the tools necessary to evolve into expressive and confident singers and performers. She currently works at her personal vocal studio mentoring several established and also upcoming artists.

“I would personally like to take some time to thank you for all your support. Thank you for your encouragement and the constant help over the years. Getting to London without your support wouldn’t have been possible, let alone getting such great opportunities like performing in the West End. The passion I saw in you is what inspired me to go further and chase my dreams. Thank you so much!!!”
Antoine Farrugia, England

 “I can never thank you enough dear Claire! You are one amazing vocal coach and friend to Martina and we certainly share this victory with you. You have acknowledged her hard work as from day one. You have supported her in less positive times and now it’s your time to celebrate together!!! Martina has found a great mentor in you.  Thanks for being the amazingly supportive vocal coach you are!
Antonella Galea Loffreda, Malta (after her daughter won the Kanzunetta Indipendenza festival in Sep ’18)

 “I wouldn’t have gotten any close to this without your help.  All your input, no matter how big or small, has made me the performer I am today and it is truly appreciated.  Thank you for believing in me and supporting me along the way.  Your knowledge and guidance have inspired me to carry on in my chosen field and it has been ever so fruitful.
Antoine Farrugia, England

 “Мы так гордимся, что Claire McCartin наш учитель вот уже столько лет (8!!!!). Она учит не только технике вокала, но и петь душой! А как она влюблена в русскую культуру и язык! Многим нашим соотечественникам поучиться у неё правильному русскому языку, который для неё не является родным! Посмотрите в зал, на лица публики! Ведь практически все эти люди не понимают русского языка… а как они слушают !!!! Это и есть петь душой!
Elvira Salimon (after a concert at the Russian Centre for Science and Culture)

“Thank you Claire for challenging me every lesson to get over my fears and be more confident. Thank you for teaching me how every song I sing is a story and how important it is to connect with the audience.”
Iitu-Olivia Laakkonen, Finland
