Nella Fantasia

By far the most popular piece I’m asked to sing for the bride’s entrance is Nella Fantasia but it’s also suitable for the signing of the marriage register. I’m accompanied by Eoin O’Callaghan on piano and Aoife O’Donovan on flute. The beautiful flowers in the video are by Carrie O’Connor of  Best of Buds Florist, Tralee

Singing Lessons in Ballincollig and Douglas, Cork

I provide singing lessons in Ballincollig and Douglas, Cork. This is an individual lesson with a small bit of theory and the emphasis will be on fun whilst teaching the student how to look after the voice. I will also prepare students for ABRSM vocal exams if required as well as Junior and Leaving certificate practicals. I’ve been singing for years, starting out in school choirs, musicals etc but this led to me damaging my voice as I had no guidance about how to look after it! When I began official voice lessons at the age of 18 I had to go backwards before I could progress so my aim is to prevent other young voices with potential from going through the same thing as I did! I am a fully qualified voice coach with a Bachelor of Music degree specialising in Vocal Performance. Drop me an email to siobhanoliver@gmail.com or give me a call on 085 7128843 for further details
