From Russia with love

Some of the singers I tutor were invited by the Russian Centre for Science and Culture to perform during this event – Anna Salimon, Kiana Fenech and also Martina Galea Loffreda. Much laughter, fun, colour, flowers and music – a really well organised event!

Greg Enriquez in Malta

And that’s a wrap! Two intensive master classes by the great vocal coach Greg Enriquez all the way from Las Vegas.

As musicians/vocalists, we are on a continuous journey to educate ourselves, to evolve as artists, and to become better performers than we were yesterday. I organised this event so it will be part of the musical journey of all the participants. Well done to all!
Thank u to the sponsors of this event – Medina Healthcare Ltd for the Ogilvy honey products and the Otosan products, Vocal Zone in the UK for all the different teas they sent us to try out, and RockSchool.

IVACON 2019 in Austria

And finally, the much awaited IVACON arrived. Made my way to Baden, Austria, for my yearly dose of vocal geekiness at this famous IVA conference 🙂 A way of meeting up with friends, colleagues, and vocal instructors from all over the world for a week of masterclasses, workshops and lessons.

Premio Mia Martini

Thanks to Marilanda Maiello, my student Anna Salimon took part in the Premio Mia Martini festival in Sicily at the end of April. She was an immediate hit with the judges, earning her place in the final in October. Good luck Anna for this great opportunity!

Addams Family auditions

The Addams Family musical is coming to our shores! As the vocal coach of this production, I joined the rest of the DLS Productions team to choose the cast during auditions held in April. Please keep an eye out for tickets – show will be held at Mediterranean Conference Centre in March 2020.


Professional Vocalist

Claire McCartin's distinctive blues voice is a much awaited fresh breath among Malta's evergrowing pop and rock scenes. With a voice which hints Eva Cassidy and Nina Simone, she is constantly evolving as an artist, performing regularly in Malta and also beyond our shores, namely in Russia, Austria and the U.S.
