Thinking beyond the notes
I was pleased to discover how Amanda worked with our advanced music students because I didn’t know what outcomes she had previously had with performers. Via positive and supportive interactions with each student, she offered new ways for them to think about their physicality when performing. Meeting students at their various stages of development, Amanda helped students to think beyond the notes to how they are communicating with the audience. I would enthusiastically her teaching to anyone who wants to develop their performance skills.

“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
“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
“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

Better than Toastmasters
“What you teach is better than Toastmasters.”

“Brings interpretive warmth and insight to every song…”

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.
Music Performance Coach
I help musicians close the gap between their on-stage performance and what they know is possible. I help them tap the creativity that sometimes shies away from an audience at crucial moments, and guide them to their unique sense of purpose so that they can fall in love with their work, thrill their audiences, and get to the next level in their careers.
