    I love teaching!

     

    Whether it is adults learning Opera, Musical Theatre, Jimi Hendrix with guitar accompaniment, or teenagers, choirs, or a class of pre-schoolers, I am passionate about teaching and thoroughly enjoy it all!

     

    I trained at the University of Tasmania where I received a Bachelor of Music (Performance and Music Education) and I have been fortunate to sing in some wonderful places -  a Verdi Requiem in the Sydney Opera House (ref Soprano soloist recording),  the original Australian cast of Phantom of the Opera, in Melbourne, Australia, where I was privileged to work with Hal Prince and Gillian Lynne. 

     

    I have also collaborated with established musicians, (in Warsaw to perform in a chamber group), and London where I presented a concert of Australian music (Beneath the Southern Skies), amongst others.   I have presented many recitals, oratorios, operas over the years in Australia and other places I have lived.

     

    I have been able to utilise my extensive classroom teaching experience from preschool, through to high school and have taught singing in high schools, and also University (University of West London, London College of Music 2012/13).  

     

    I have founded and run several choirs. This includes an expat choir in Warsaw, Poland and a choir with the Hampstead Women’s Club in London. I love facilitating people coming together to be creative, and seeing for their love of music, and performing.

     

    I helped organise Gala concerts; including the Hope for Haiti Gala in Warsaw in 2010. I was responsible for preparing 8 separate choirs to present the Halleluiah chorus in this concert, and also conducting the Sinfonia Iuventus (ref Six Lives recording).  

     

    I have been lucky enough to live in Stockholm, Warsaw, Kuala Lumpur, Hong Kong and London, and I have been able to sing and teach in all these places.  It is lovely to see my students go on to professional careers, or to make the most of any musical opportunities they go on to experience.

    “Inspirational to be taught by a true industry professional. A real confidence boost feeling safe in the knowledge that she really knows what she's doing and how to get the best from you” LAURA LCM 2013

     

    "Bernadette helped me to improve my vocal technique it terms of placement and support. The lessons were very well structured to suit my vocal needs; and I constantly felt challenged! I would recommend Bernadette to anyone looking to improve their vocal skills"  - Josh LCM 2013
