Testimonials for Singer, Recording Artist and music teacher, Helen Coleman
“I cannot speak highly enough of Helen Coleman. Helen is a gifted and dedicated teacher who I admire for her strength of principal. The vocal health of her students is ever so important and Helen will not compromise this for anything . She asks for dedication and commitment and offers the same in return. Music is an integral part of who Helen is and this is evident in everything she does. I have achieved far more than I could have imagined – honestly, I don’t believe I could find a better singing teacher anywhere……” Faye, adult student since term 1, 2011.
“It has been the best thing we ever did for our daughter to come to Helen for lessons. Helen is an amazing teacher and mentor to her…… This is the best teacher. ” Suzanna, parent.
“Her presence and passion has made a huge impression on me….. Helen is such a positive force for the healing power of music in Ipswich and beyond.” Jason Barry Smith, Creative Director, Opera Queensland.
“Helen took me from being afraid of the sound of my own voice to performing in front of a huge audience, and from struggling to read notes on a stave to interpreting music with confidence. I started with very little prior musical experience, and under Helen’s guidance, learned all the fundamentals of vocal technique, stagecraft, theory, and authentic performance. As a teacher Helen encouraged and challenged me to reach my full potential, progressing gradually from basic to advanced repertoire. Learning to sing is a gift for life, and as a singer you could not be in more capable hands than Helen’s.” Chris, adult student.
“Thanks for all the wonderful foundations you have put down for the girls in music and singing. The girls have benefited greatly from your wonderful teaching, and general care of them as a trustworthy adult.” Sharenne, parent.
“We are so lucky to have you as her teacher – we both look forward to Emilys’ lessons…it has been great watching her get better and better and her confidence has grown not only in singing and piano but with school as well. I thank you very much for all your hard work with my daughter :)” Melissa, parent.
“Helen has been Paris’ vocal teacher for the past 8 years. Helen teaches in the most thorough and professional way I have seen, keeping the lessons structured, yet she makes every lesson fun and enjoyable. I feel this is very important because it keeps the young students, such as Paris, very interested. Helen takes from her own time to attend eisteddfods and concerts that her students are performing at, and Paris has enjoyed fabulous success under her guidance. She is a wonderful singing teacher, and has become a firm and valued friend of the family.” Julie, parent
“Bailee has been taught vocally by Helen for 8 years now, and has excelled as a performer. She is currently studying to sit her 4th grade AMEB vocal exam, having accomplished the previous ones to an excellent standard. This resulted in her receiving a scholarship at her school for singing, and Bailee is now in an advanced performing arts program, has participated successfully at Eisteddfodeau, and performed in many local amateur productions. She is a valued member of the local performing arts community.” Jacqui, parent.
“I always wanted to learn piano, and my daughter wanted to learn to sing. We’re happy that we can now do that, and access a good teacher, without leaving our property in the country. Thank you, Helen.” Jodie, parent.
“I have always wanted to learn singing and piano, but living on a sheep station, made it impossible because of the travel. I love the fact that I can learn music from a professional teacher while living and working so far away from the city. It’s the best of two worlds for me. The exercises are easy to download, and have really helped me to improve.” Aimee, adult student since 2014.
