“Rise up” with Ilenia Camilleri

In June, my student Ilenia Camilleri and I hit the studios of Cyprian Cassar to record our version of Rise up. Here it is. Hope you like it!

IVACON 2017 in San Diego

And… in April I jetsetted off to San Diego for this year’s IVACON – our IVA teachers’ conference, where there were over 30 expert-led lectures covering IVA Core Vocal Pedagogy, vocal anatomy and function, applying vocal technique to different styles of music, marketing classes, running a better business, vocal science, and much more. Great experience! And now looking to put to the test all that I learnt there!



Level 4 Advanced!!!

You don’t become a vocal instructor overnight. It’s a constant journey to improve yourself and to be a better teacher than you were yesterday. It’s been 8 years now of rigorous training, constant study, vocal research, own vocal training, nerve-wracking testing every year and keeping up to date with anything to do with the voice. Am so pleased to say that I have now passed my Panel Testing and reached Level 4 Advanced (out of 5 levels)… I would like to thank the six IVA Master Teachers – Guy Babusek, Stephanie Borm-Krueger, Linda Moosman Tomkinson, Kathy Kennedy, Spencer Welch and Jeffrey Skouson for their constant help in getting me this far, for their guidance and ongoing mentorship. And Joshua Alamu who started me on this road in the first place. And the journey continues…
