After running a successful singing studio in Perth for many years Elise is now in Melbourne to open Muley Vocal Coaching in the heart of Melbourne! No matter what skill level you are, from beginners who have been told they can’t sing to seasoned professionals, Muley Vocal Coaching caters for everyone.
Growing up the only thing I remember about my singing lessons was breathing and pronunciation and A lot of random words technical terminology I didn't really understand. Well, I pretended I did, until on day I got real with my self! Then one day my voice just magically soared out… and that was called my singing voice, but it was just something that happened… I would always question, how do you actually sing, what is going on to make that sound, how did I actually do that?
All of these years on singing lessons, I actually started to feel like there was something wrong with me, that perhaps I was stupid. I was on a mission to understand how my voice works, how to produce the best sound for me. I reached out…and many lessons later from a range of renowned singing teachers, voice coaches and seasoned professionals I finally understood how I sing, why I sing the way I do but most importantly I found “ONE” voice… my voice.
As my performing career developed I started to realise my friends, who were also professional performers, had the same gaps in understanding, and well, just an all round confused voice… similar to me many years ago. Putting in so much time and effort, to still have vocal problems was leaving them frustrated. Not only was it driving them crazy, it was inhibiting their performance potential. It was then I knew I had to share what I had learned, and Muley Vocal Coaching was born.
