I believe that learning vocal technique frees you to focus on musical expression, allowing you to give rise to the song in your heart.

I welcome all ages, ambitions, styles, genders, aspirations, and walks of life. My teaching experience spans over a decade and includes AMEB exam coaching, audition preparation, music theatre role coaching, concert preparation, and has seen me teach within small music schools, prep to VCE private schools, in my own private studio and contracted to council arts programs.

My background is classical singing and opera with a little dollop of early music, tango, musical theatre, and western swing. My passions in life are singing, food, community, animals (particularly dogs!) and learning.

I have a Master of Speech Pathology and a Bachelor of Music Performance from the University of Melbourne, an Associate in Music Performance (Voice) from the AMEB, as well as an Advanced Certificate in Music Performance from Box Hill College of TAFE. I am a certified practicing speech pathologist and an active voice performer.

Student Feedback

Isabelle C.

Genuinely such an amazing & caring teacher (and person in general). I've already seen so much improvement in my vocals since starting my lessons with her. I've learned so many new techniques and I'm reaching new heights with my singing goals.
I started off quite shy/introverted, and Merrin's been so incredibly patient and kind with me as a student.
I'd recommend her to anyone that's wanting to do singing lessons.

Merrin is a fabulous teacher, who I have immediately developed a rapport with. It is early days, but I think that her expertise will develop my skills and ability and help me get to the next level in my singing goals- learning to merge technical skill with individual nuances and style.
Thank you Merrin!

Merrin is a lovely singing teacher. My daughter is loving her lessons. Merrin is very organised, providing lesson notes, sheet music and links to songs and backing music for the songs my daughter has chosen to learn. I would highly recommend Merrin.
