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
One of the pieces I’m often asked to sing at weddings is Songbird. I also make the paper flowers in this video – I’m allergic to pollen so they’re ideal for anyone with allergies.
I’ve just started trying to get to grips with sound cloud. You’ll find audio files of Schubert’s Ave Maria, Nella Fantasia, She Moved Through The Fair, Songbird and A Clare Benediction. Just click on the title above and fingers crossed it will work! Siobhan 🙂
I know most people that read my blog are brides to be so I just want to share an Irish supplier with you all. Check out Carol Shaw Jewellery for your bridal jewellery and for bridesmaids, mother of the bride and guests!
I “met” Carol a few years ago on IrishBusinesswomen.com and having seen some of her pieces on her website I asked her if she could make something unique for me that I could wear when singing at weddings. You can see what she designed on the video just below this post or on my Facebook page at SiobhanOliverSoprano I told Carol the type of thing I was looking for and wanted something with a music theme – she came up with a few ideas and ordered in some silver music note beads for me and teamed them up with black Swarovski Crystals. What’s great is nobody else has the same thing and it was so reasonably priced! My mum, aunt and friends have also bought from Carol and everyone has been delighted with the service, speed and quality that Carol provides. She’s a lovely lady and its great to support one of our own. I live in Cork and Carol is in Dublin – we organised everything over e mail so check out her website at www.carolshawjewellery.com for some beautiful pieces for your big day
