Piano Teacher required for Vocal Studio. Are you a piano teacher/tutor? The House of Voice situated in the South Eastern Suburbs is currently looking for a fully qualified piano teacher to work on a casual basis to offer an opportunity for singers to learn piano.

The House of Voice found its name from a metaphoric concept used to illustrate to students the importance of vocal technique, why we want to integrate it and why it is vital for vocal success and longevity.

With extensive education in vocal anatomy and pedagogy, HOV provides vocalists the opportunity to gain skills both as a singer and as a musician, whilst improving technique and artistry.

HOV maintains a fun, holistic and interactive approach to vocal training, educating students in vocal anatomy, awareness training, the body and how it can efficiently produce sound without strain/effort with techniques to promote good vocal health, efficiency and stamina.

Straying from the one size fits all approach, HOV has a strong emphasis on the individual, focusing on singers’ key strengths, eliminating inefficient habitual vocal patterns and developing individual programs to set vocalists on the path to becoming their best!

THE HOUSE OF VOICE boasts many student successes from preparing singers up to lead roles for major musicals including the latest Melbourne productions of Les Miserable/Matilda to training vocalists up to being signed by national/ international record deals on major tours including SXSWTHE HOUSE OF VOICE is extremely proud of its training philosophy with a high distinction/distinction AMEB standard year in and year out – alongside VCE/Tertiary vocal students never marking lower than a B+ in 9 years.
