I believe that everyone can learn to sing!
I grew up singing in choirs in Nanaimo, and developed a passion for the expressive capacity of the human voice. I completed two terms at the Randolph Academy of Performing Arts in Toronto and a Bachelor of Music in Voice from the University of Victoria, and have returned to my hometown to share my education in song. I also have extensive choral experience, including membership in the National Youth Choir of Canada and the BC Choral Federation's Choral Directorship Course.
I love inspiring people. I love to help people find their voice, discover freedom in their technique, and encounter new musical insights – whether in private lessons or in a choir. I also love to speak to audiences through performance.
I direct the Camerata Singers, a mixed-voice community choir in Nanaimo. Through vocal instruction, fun and challenging repertoire, and a supportive community environment, my goal is to bring out the best in any group. I am also available to coach choirs, and run workshops for groups from kids to seniors.
I teach voice lessons to people of all ages, abilities, and genders, in styles ranging from classical to pop. I employ a student-centred approach, where our goals and workflow are based on what you want from lessons – whether that's to feel comfortable singing along to the radio or to prepare for auditions! Lessons include plenty of movement and laughter to engage the whole body. My main goal is to help you discover healthy, free, and expressive vocalization.
I have a passion for performing. There is nothing quite like the joy of communicating with an audience through song! Art song is a particular favorite of mine; I get great satisfaction from its subtleties and its storytelling. I have performed as a soloist with the University of Victoria Sonic Lab, and I welcome invitations to sing as a guest with other musical groups.
Lindsay is a great voice teacher. Not only does she teach you ways to improve your technique, but also the science behind your vocal structure. She relates all her lessons to references I can understand, making it easy to apply them quickly.
I highly recommend Lindsay as a voice teacher.
