BIOGRAPHY

About Amanda Cole

“As a teacher and coach, I work with people who feel trapped by self-criticism or stage fright to find their creative performing voice so they can share their deep presence, brilliance and musicality. I help performers and would-be performers from accomplished classical instrumentalists to those wishing to get in touch with their authentic speaking or singing voice for the very first time.”

 

Amanda Cole holds degrees from the University of Melbourne, Monash University, Griffith University and the Victorian College of the Arts.
