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

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!"

Better than Toastmasters

"What you teach is better than Toastmasters."

Jasmine Shen, PhD student, Otago (New Zealand)

Interpretive insight

“Brings interpretive warmth and insight to every song…”

Gregory Berg, Journal of Singing, USA.

 

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.
