  1. I consider the singing lessons I’ve had with Anne Maree Wilshire to be among the best money I’ve ever spent in my life. I’m a singer-songwriter and frankly it used to all be a bit of a struggle. But I now have a freedom in my voice that was never there before, and this goes hand in hand with increased confidence and pure enjoyment of singing.

    It’s a whole other world. For any singer who knows they have further to go, I recommend her absolutely. She is a voice unblocker extraordinaire, and very easy to work with. I really like her style: it’s very practical, and you end up with a well-internalised treasure trove of techniques to use at home and on the road.”

  2. Anne Maree has huge range of great techniques to draw on and can always creatively offer me exactly what I need to discover my voice. She always offers me the perfect thing for me.

    From being worried about how I sound. I’ve grown to being confident that I can feel what I’m doing and what I need to adjust to sing with an easy flowing open sound.”

  3. “Anne Maree has a holistic approach. My sessions include technique, bringing out my unique performance style and interpretation and refining my original songs.

    I get more out of the lessons because they’re not just about voice. They also hone how my mind works and creating healthy thought habits. She is able to understand me as an individual. If I cant understand something she breaks it down and takes a different approach till I get it. She always knows what I need to “get” and makes effort to break it down into little parts to see what we can improve on.

    She has wide range of techniques and skills and is open to a lot more possibilities – rather than other teachers I’ve had that only have one “right way” to sing. If something isn’t working they’d say the same thing, like “come from the “diaphragm”. But what does that mean? Anne Maree breaks each different skill down till I understand what it means and I can feel it for myself.”

  4. Anne Maree’s given me the confidence that I can trust her to know what’s best for me. She listens and knows where there’s something I’m not aware of in myself.

    She knows when it’s time to put techniques aside, when I’m sure enough. Her warm up routines are great. When I perform around the world no matter how small or large the venue she’s taught me how to trust my technique, relax and focus on my performance.

    I feel creative, resourceful and confident and able to give a consistently good performance. I know the ground work is there and still have the confidence to takes risks on stage.

  5. Anne Maree is the best demonstration of her information…..She is the example. She has contrast as a presenter, wildly expressive one moment, intense and thought provoking the next. She teaches how to access your audience with confidence and passion, to find your voice and power

  6. Anne Maree has an extraordinary mix of warmth and competence. And thank God for that. She works at an amazing depth and when working at that level you really need to be with someone who knows what they are doing and handles you with compassion. I have experienced the benefit of her work and can confidently say that if you want behaviour change that really sticks, then be guided by her expertise.

  7. Anne Maree Wilshire is a great singing coach. She applies a thoughtful, customised approach to get the best out of her students. I have limited time to practice but am in my own way committed to developing my voice. Anne Maree takes this on board and never makes me feel guilty if I don’t practice as much as she’d like. We live with the realities of life and despite this have made tremendous progress in a relatively short time. I highly recommend Anne Maree to anyone wanting an intelligent, experienced, passionate, and committed teacher.
