"Singing is such a great pleasure and it is a basic human right. I really value the opportunity to help anyone - and I mean anyone - feel confident and  joyous about making their own sound." - Pearly Black


Pearly Black offers vocal tuition suitable for everyone, from complete beginners to gigging musicians. Pearly's teaching can also benefit actors wishing to broaden their skills range, song writers wanting to perform their material their own way or even those who just wish to indulge that long held desire to experience the pure pleasure of singing.

    Understanding the physical and psychological causes of stress and performance anxiety, then employing methods to overcome these.
    Getting a grasp on song forms and structures, music theory, elements of rhythm, pitch, how to work with a band, differing music styles etc.
    Getting your vocal technique to express what you strive so hard to put into your compositions. No matter how unique your vocal style, we'll make it as beautiful as it deserves to be.
    Recording can present a whole different set of challenges to that found in live performance so we can look at techniques to get your best performance out in the studio.

Pearly has also made informal studies of the vocal folk music of Bulgaria, singing with Melbourne based women's choir, Petrunka. She has recently been studying the incredible vocal traditions of Flamenco with Australia's foremost proponent of the form, Manolo Varela.
