Voice lessons in Ballincollig and Douglas, Cork

I studied for my B.Mus in the Cork school of Music and trained under Cara O’Sullivan, Robert Craig, Mary Hegarty and Mary McSweeney. I was awarded an honours in vocal performance from CSM in 2010 and won the highest placed singer in the Senior Recital Competition that same year. I was extremely lucky to have Cara O’Sullivan as my voice coach when I was studying for my leaving cert – as well as teaching me technique and repertoire, she also taught me how to look after my voice which is something most teenagers are never taught to do. If you have chosen music for your state exams and would like to discuss one to one voice coaching to help you achieve your results drop me an email siobhanoliver@gmail. com or give me a call on 085 7128843
