FULL RELEASE

is all about overcoming common singing hurdles.

Discover how your voice heals your heart, and your heart heals your voice. Uncover the psychological blocks that manifest as physical tension and technical obstacles in your singing, and how to move past them with full love and acceptance.

Few things compare to the power of the human voice.

It isn't something reserved for world-famous singers, or speakers who've changed the world with their speeches.

You have an innate force within you, that when aligned, has the capacity to transform your health and mood, and then positively impact the lives of others.

The first step is go within. Your voice, body, mind and emotions are inextricably linked. They need to be treated as such.

My courses aren't just about singing technique and vocal science, they take into account your physical, emotional and psychological world

These aren't just tools for improving your singing voice, these are tools to feel empowered.

YOU AND YOUR VOICE ARE PRACTICALLY MAGIC.

SINGING TRANSFORMED MY LIFE

 I used to do anything to stay small.

I was constantly scared and apologetic.

Desperately fighting for validation from others.

I couldn't talk to strangers, and in my wildest dreams I wouldn't have seen myself ever being able to sing in front of 10 000 people.

But the more I sang, the more I realised it is truly

expansive.

Not only did my voice and confidence grow, but so did my heart.

Singing helped me love myself.

"I transformed from a nervous beginner, to having the confidence to tackle anything in front of me." - Emma

" ...transform vocal phobics, such as myself, from self doubt, into mature performers who understand that to be able to speak is to be able to sing." - Kevin

"Her lessons helped me develop the skills and confidence to audition for music at university." - Brydie

MEET YOUR TEACHER

Hi! If we haven't been introduced, my name is Livia Brash.

I'm a professional operatic soprano, voice teacher and the founder of Singing for Self-Care.

Singing transformed my life, and it's my passion to connect others with their own inner strength through the medium of singing technique.

I'm passionate about vocal pedagogy, completed my Masters of Music degree on scholarship and love the whole technical side of singing, but this is just the tip of iceberg.

As the daughter of two psychiatrists (yes, really), my attitude towards singing has always had an undercurrent of being through a mental health lens.

The more I learned about singing, the more I realised it is powerful method of self-care, when you know how to use it.

You can learn more about my teaching background and philosophy here.
