From the get go Darren had me thinking and singing like never before and I instantly felt the improvements in my voice! I found my head voice in the first lesson which previous teachers had never been able to help me achieve. Darren is a great singing teacher and I would highly recommend him for any young males who are looking to get more out of their voice.
After 3 months of training with Darren, I landed my dream role playing Joanne in RENT the musical, which I could not have done without this training. Darren can quickly assess everything your voice needs to achieve your goals and has helped me do so much more with my voice than I ever thought possible! Drawing upon his own extensive training, Darren helped me keep my voice healthy and strong while I was rehearsing for the show and to really make the character and the music my own. Thank you Darren!
To put it simply, Darren is one of the best vocal coaches going around. An alchemist. He has a magic way of bringing 'out' a voice and to share tools in how to do so. His extraordinary aural perceptions have a way of picking up on a voice's weaknesses and strengths in incredible detail. Combine this with an array of exercise's and technique's that work on developing an ease in delivery and vocal connection, as well theoretical understanding and application, and you will be astounded at the vocal transformation that occurs. What I have learnt from Darren is invaluable and has aided to shape my voice into what it is today. His approach towards teaching is unparalleled for vocalist (and musicians) of many varying levels and is a sheer joy to work with.
Darren has helped me find an understanding of my voice that I have been searching for - for many years. As a professional singer who has studied at a tertiary level in Australia and abroad, I have not met a voice teacher more competent or as capable as Darren.Through his functional, methodical approach to vocal technique, Darren showed me a way of singing that is more efficient, healthier and far more enjoyable. My vocal sound has progressed to a richer, better-balanced tone that has exceeded any of my expectations. I highly recommend Darren to anyone looking to truly get the most out of their voice in a down-to-earth, supportive and stimulating environment.
Darren diagnoses vocal faults with precision and explains in an easy to understand manner how to correct them. He is a pedagogue par excellence, as his lessons are well structured and very fun! His multifaceted approach means I have begun to discover the potential of my voice and through his tutelage have become excited about music making once again. A top notch teacher 10/10
