Lisa Flynn
Director / Teacher

Experience

Lisa has a wealth of experience as a performer in both original and cover bands, spanning across multiple styles of music. She has performed in duos, trios and big bands (consisting of 12 plus instrumentalists), and was recently selected to represent Australia as a vocalist in the World Championship of Performing Arts held in Los Angeles.   Her extensive performance experience, years of teaching and studies have enabled her to acquire a solid understanding of a broad range of vocal styles and techniques necessary to master them.

Lisa currently divides her time between teaching at St Francis of Assisi Primary school, conducting lessons at Melbourne Voiceworks, and collaborating with a Melbourne producer songwriting for film and television.

She holds a Bachelor of Music, Advanced Diploma of Jazz/Popular music, Diploma of Jazz/Popular Music, and has obtained her Estill Figure Proficiency Certification (currently completing her masters).


Credentials

As part of her increased interest in voice science, Lisa has obtained her Estill certificate of Figure Proficiency and is currently undergoing testing to become a certified Estill Master Teacher.

Estill voice training is a model used by vocalists and voice professionals worldwide. The model encourages independent control of the structures within the larynx responsible for generating voice, and components of the vocal tract (or throat) responsible for regulating resonance.

Developing an understanding of how to voluntarily control the structures of the voice, empowers vocalists by the inherent freedom, control and flexibility to realise the true potential of their voice, without straining or compromising the health of the voice. As the model is based on voice science, there is no aesthetic bias and is appropriate for all music genres, both speaking and singing.


Approach

Lisa has a caring, patient demeanour and the innate ability to help people feel instantly at ease. She takes the time to get to know you, your musical goals and any challenges you have.  From this information she then navigates the most effective method of learning to assist you in leveraging your full potential!

She utilises mindset transformation tools to shift any limiting beliefs and/or negative thinking patterns that may be holding you back, and turns them into nurturing and empowering ones that benefit both your singing and your life. Lisa is highly passionate about helping people achieve their vocal goals while simultaneously supporting the individual behind the voice.
