Grow Your Voice with Private Singing Lessons

Theatre Bugs & Adelaide Theatre Academy have three outstanding Private Singing Teachers who give every student the best opportunity possible to reach their full singing potential in a safe, nurturing and positive environment. Nothing makes our teachers happier than providing students with the best possible approaches to exploring the uniqueness of their own voice while also learning to strengthen and protect their vocal development.

Our Evening and Afternoon of Song Concerts will be staged in November and all of our private singing students are invited to perform in these concerts in front of a live audience.

Private singing lessons are an ideal way to accelerate progress with coaching that is tailored to their specific needs. They are also an excellent way to prepare for important auditions and for students looking to gain extra confidence.

We have 15 of vacancies remaining within our private classrooms at Norwood and lessons are scheduled between Monday and Saturday.

Alexia has been performing and singing since she could talk. She found a love of harmony at the age of 6, harmonising with songs she heard on the radio, and began her own journey of music through singing lessons. This grew to other instruments such as piano and guitar, which then aided her biggest passion, songwriting. At school, Alexia competed in competitions such as Generations in Jazz, and songwriting competitions such as the Australian Children’s Music Foundations National Songwriting Competition in 2017, placing runner up. Alexia holds a Bachelor of Music (BMus) from the University of Adelaide’s Conservatorium of Music, and learned learned from industry professionals how to perform, write and produce her own music. She has performed alongside many great Australian touring acts, and is apart of Adelaide R&B group ARIES, and provides back up vocals for Sony artist, Jess Day.  As an artist in development with Brisbane label, Dew Process, she has been awarded one on one sessions with influential Australian songwriters such as Jono Tooke and Pat Byrne.
