What people say about us
My daughter, Gaby, has been taking lessons with Grace for about a year now. Over this period, she has picked up many different techniques and her interest in singing songs of different genres has really grown. Through Grace’s guidance, Gaby recently took her Grade 1 classical vocal exams and scored a distinction. Grace’s lessons have gone beyond the typical singing classes to cover speech and expression, and techniques to deal with stress or stiffness in the body, which have been very useful I feel. Gaby is enjoying this integrated style of learning very much.
Grace is an gifted teacher who takes a multidisciplinary approach in working the voice and the body to release sound. As a long time triathlete, I’ve had trouble with my airflow due to chronic muscle contraction along my neck and diaphragm, resulting in a misaligned neck-chest-diaphragm-hip. She learned and applied Jin Shin Jyutsu techniques to help release the air, and help me belt at higher registers. It seems hard to believe at first, but then the results speak for themselves.
Grace is very knowledgeable about functional training, and she combines her theoretical and practical knowledge to help her students improve and strengthen their voices very rapidly. She also organizes various performance opportunities which are invaluable in helping her students to develop their confidence and public performance technique. She constantly challenges her students to do better and to meet their aspirations, through a combination of classes and performances and by encouraging them to take part in national and international competitions. Grace is an inspiring teacher to my daughter.
I’ve been with Grace for the last 1 1/2 years. She is an amazing person and a patient and caring teacher. Her lessons are not just voice training but a complete body and breath experience using the art of Jin Shin Jyutsu. In the time I’ve spent with her not only has my voice improved but she had also been able to help me with my sciatica. In class she also teaches me self-help techniques to help my sciatic pain and improve my breathing that helps me sing better. It is indeed a holistic and beautiful experience.
Sanika’s passion is singing pop music. She enjoys every single session with Grace and always looks forward to class. She feels that the more you know the more there is to enjoy about music. With that in mind, Grace aims to make each class informative, interactive and entertaining, offering her insights complemented with live performance practices. These lessons are helping Sanika towards her goal of performing pop music well.
I used to have abdominal spasms which would act up inexplicably. Besides affecting my health, they also affected my singing, for example when I had to sing high notes. Working with Jin Shin Jyutsu improved both my health and singing as I could now breathe deeply and freely.
