I teach Classical and Contemporary, Jazz, Blues, Rock, Pop and so forth. I also add music and song history studies to my lessons.
The structure of my lessons will be according instructions and as set out in Trinity College London and ANZCA's graded singing books and music theory books - it will follow that pattern and I will add my own experience and knowledge as a singer/musician to my lessons as well.
I record all singing lessons; not only so that the student can be reminded of what was said and done during a lesson, but so that the student can hear themselves, improve, practise and revise. Doing so, provides a record for myself, for the student and his/her parent or caregiver, as to the development and progress of the student. Student, parent/s or caregiver are provided with MP3s of the lessons and it is sent to them via email.
I also create backing music of the songs my students sing. And where possible I teach them to do their own backing vocals. Some of my students are taught to accompany themselves on Keyboards or a Piano - depending on the type of song and the competency level of a particular student.

A quick background: From a young age Veronica was lucky enough to be associated with professional musicians who recognised her talent. They taught, nurtured and supported her while she was learning and they provided her with many opportunities to perform in public and at their shows.
At the age of 14, she performed at a Variety Artists Annual Ball, which was held in Auckland, New Zealand. In the audience was the patron of the club, the late Rt. Hon. Sir Robert Muldoon, a previous Prime Minister of New Zealand and his wife, Lady Muldoon.
In the years to follow, she would gain valuable on the job experience as a singer, a musician and a team player. At the age of 17, she had enough confidence in her ability as a musician to go solo and has performed at various venues and in front of all kinds of audiences ever since.
In the year 2008, she had the pleasure to perform for the Rt. Hon. Helen Clark, the Prime Minister of New Zealand at a dinner given in the Prime Minister’s honour.
Years and hours of practice, of learning, on the job training, of commitment and dedication, has helped Veronica to ‘morph’ into the professional solo performer and musician she is now. To her, every member of an audience is special, a dignitary and nothing gives her more pleasure than to witness the progress of a student.
