Effectiveness striking

"Simple, powerfully demonstrated tools, making a marked and immediate change for each participant.

Amanda’s clear demonstration of their effectiveness was often quite striking."

Pauline, Sippy Downs, Qld

Remarkable Performer

"Amanda Cole is one of the most remarkable performers I have taught
in her ability to hear a new idea and then freely experiment with it and incorporate it in her work."

Cathy Madden, Principal Lecturer, UW School of Drama, Washington

Extraordinary improvement

"I’ve noticed an extraordinary improvement in my students since completing Amanda’s performance course."

Janet Brewer, Arioso Chamber Ensemble

Delightful and sensitive touches

“I’ve seen a lot of singers in my time. Amanda Cole brings such delightful and sensitive touches to the songs she sings that they come to life in an extraordinary way.”

Paul Seto, Former Programmer 4MBS, Australia.

Truly a revelation

"Amanda’s course has really shown up the perfection-pressure I’ve been putting myself under for years. Some of what she taught was a major challenge for me. But when I actually did it, it made me play better! I need to work up all my solo pieces and major orchestral extracts with these things in mind. Truly a revelation!."

Emily Gorlin, Freelance French Horn, London

Rediscovered my joy of singing!

"Amanda helped me rediscover my joy of singing!

I couldn’t have hoped for more. I was very happy with the course"

Ber O Grady, Hypnotherapist, Doonan

Spellbound by your presence

"The children were spellbound by your presence, which was quite magical, if I may say. All the best with your incredible work."

Kasia Palko, Teacher, Noosa Pengari Steiner School (Qld)

Quite frankly, enraptured

“We were all, quite frankly, enraptured which seems a wholly appropriate response to the music of a visionary.”

(Hildegard & the Celtic Bard, Maleny, 2017). Pat Roche, audience member.

Amanda Cole PhD – Voice & Performance Coach

 


 

 

My coaching practice has three main branches.

1. I teach performance skills to professional musicians as well as to beginner musicians or those just learning to access their singing or public speaking voice for the first time.

2. I teach singing to all levels. I offer group classes that cater particularly to beginner and intermediate singers and offer solutions to choral singers. I also offer packages for high-level one-on-one coaching.

3. I teach piano (and/or singing) and general music skills to children. I also offer courses for parents who want to provide the most supportive and nurturing environment for their child’s musical journey.

Contact me for details of a package for your child to begin his/her musical journey in Amanda’s uniquely holistic way. Or contact me if you are a parent wanting to create the conditions for your child’s creative journey.

“I help people create the conditions to get the best out of themselves as professional performers or students, or, as parents and teachers of gifted children, to get the best out of the budding musicians they are nurturing.” Amanda Cole.
