Meet The Teacher and Soprano

Hi, I'm Deborah Spencer.

I’m a highly qualified singer, singing teacher and pianist (M.Mus, B.Mus.Ed, LTCL), and certified coach and counsellor with the ICF. And, I’ve been right where you are now. I train singers of all ages and abilities to help them achieve their musical, vocal and performance goals. My lessons are taught with passion, enthusiasm and dedication. Together, we’ll see your voice blossom into the one of confidence, range, effortless tonality and performance-ready.

My Musical Journey & Teaching Experience

Whether you are looking to develop a new side to yourself, your voice and musicianship for pleasure or you have professional aspirations I can help you. I have helped many singers over the years including those that have become successful singers, actors and teachers themselves. I love singing and have been a singer my whole life. 


Recently focusing more on the teaching side of singing, I pride myself on focusing on a healthy functional approach to voice use as well as artistic focus in music, performance and singing. My own music education has been comprehensive and disciplined, I am a Tertiary trained professional, completing a Masters in Music on Scholarship as well as Bachelor Degrees in Music and Education and a Licentiate Diploma. 


My professional performance experience spanning decades encompasses both Australia and Overseas and includes Western Classical Music; Art Song, Lieder and Opera to more contemporary commercial music such as Music Theatre and Jazz.


 I  have advanced teacher training in contemporary singing styles through Somatic Voice Work ™ in the USA and Advanced Teacher Training with Vocal Process in the UK also levels 1-3. I regularly update my knowledge and experience of Classical Singing through lessons, conferences and Masterclasses and performance practise. 


Singers from my studio have been nominated for encore, have been high achievers in HSC, AMEB and Trinity College examinations to Diploma Level. They have been recipients of Scholarships and winners of Vocal competitions here and overseas. Some have gone on to further training at NSW Conservatorium of Music, University of NSW, AIM, Brent Street, NIDA, VCA and others. They have performed in choirs and Theatre they have performed in bands and events  of all descriptions.


 I moved to Stanhope Gardens in the hills district of Sydney a year ago and I am currently building up my studio here. As well as teaching from my private studio I have taught Singing in some of Sydneys most accomplished School Music Departments, various Tertiary colleges and Arts Learning Officer for the Parramatta Diocese.
