WHAT ARE HOV STUDENTS SAYING:
“I have always loved to sing and needless to say over my years have been to countless music schools and private teachers, however I have achieved more with Alisha within just a year than I have with any of my other singing teachers or coaches combined!”
“I have learned more in my four months of lessons with Alisha than I learnt in five years of singing lessons at secondary school. With Alisha @ HOV’s help I managed to pass my Seventh Grade: Singing for Leisure exam with Honours (A). I also won the Superstar Singing Competition; a feat I wouldânt have had the skill or confidence to achieve without these lessons. Iâve gained so much!”
“My Daughter has been working with Alisha for years. Her confidence and ability have improved vastly since we started. She now writes and performs her own music and is going from strength to strength. Alisha has supported and mentored her through some challenging times and her deep understanding and insight into the emotions and workings of teenage girls has enabled their relationship to grow and for my daughter to remain engaged and passionate about singing”
“One of the most important and fulfilling decisions I have made to date has been to train at The House of Voice with Alisha. Its only been a year but Alisha has improved my technique and range to an unimaginable level. She teaches new concepts in every lesson regarding vocal science and ways to improve range. So, I confidently anticipate a fun filled session and am always exceeded in that expectation. Alisha, apart from being a great teacher guides my singing career â which is a dream. She also organises concerts at the end of each semester which further enhances my performance experience and opportunities to test myself. I feel blessed to be one of her students”
“Alisha’s training methods at the House of Voice are unique and second to none. I don’t think anyone else could have tapped into my voice as well as her and brought it out of me. Her techniques are not just for those wanting to learn to sing but also for those wanting to learn about themselves. What I have learnt from Alisha has helped me be more in touch with who i am and also helped me in sporting pursuits and the corporate boardroom”
THE HO– USE OF VOICE MYTH-BUSTERS:
MYTH 1# VOCAL LESSONS ARE ONLY FOR THOSE WHO CAN SING!
The truth of the matter is if you can speak you can sing. It is an ability we all have and can access with the right tools and knowledge. The House of Voice’s speciality is growing voices from the ground up drawing from a complete understanding of the mind and body in vocal.
MYTH 2# GETTING SINGING LESSONS FROM A YOUNG AGE CAN DAMAGE YOUNG VOICES!
Singing with the wrong technique damages voices as does training from coaches lacking a sound knowledge of anatomy and muscle development in children vocally. The HO– USE OF VOICE offers university trained coaches using a holistic approach to the mind and body in voice.
MYTH 3# I AM A WORKING SINGER/SONGWRITER, I KNOW ALL MY VOICE IS CAPABLE OF
THE HO– USE OF VOICE has a list of working musicians both signed and developing. THE HO– USE OF VOICE brings singers to the next level of their journey; unleashing their instrument to greater heights, filling in the gaps and giving them tools to cope vocally with the lifestyle and demands of touring which can place a big strain on vocalists
MYTH 4# I WILL LEARN ONLY ABOUT SINGING!
Lessons at the House of Voice are much more than just singing lessons, you will learn how to easily overcome your blocks in every aspect of you as a person YOUR VOICE IS YOU. Training at THE HO– USE OF VOICE will Empower, Improve and Inspire the greatest version of you, giving you a greater sense of self that is fully connected to who you are, your instrument and to all those around you.

With extensive education in anatomy and the vocal apparatus, HOV provides vocalists the opportunity to gain skills both as a singer and as a musician, whilst improving technique and artistry.
HOV maintains a fun, holistic and interactive approach to vocal training, educating students in vocal anatomy, awareness training, the body and how it can efficiently produce sound without strain/effort with techniques to promote good vocal health, efficiency and stamina. Straying from the one size fits all approach, HOV has a strong emphasis on the individual, focusing on singers key strengths, eliminating inefficient habitual vocal patterns and developing individual programs to set vocalists on the path to becoming their best.
Your Vocal Artistry
The Artist in you
Your Best Vocal Version
HOV makes a commitment to Build, Create and Inspire students and help them to develop all the aspects of becoming not only a vocalist but an artist and musician through specialised programs for all ages, levels, styles and backgrounds.
THE HO– USE OF VOICE POINTS OF DIFFERENCE:
We don’t get you to hold unnatural vocal figures or make you pay for sing-alongs without giving you a good vocal education. We work with your current body map and build your voice from the ground up: encompassing mind/body and vocal tools applicable specifically to you and your instrument.
Such as Musicianship, Theory, Basic Songwriting & Stagecraft are included in the cost of lessons. Extras which are usually classified at other schools as needing additional sessions
Most vocal schools make students pay for warmup cds, backings and music resources. But at HOV these are supplied to students FREE OF COST
No Additional Sign Up Fees:
Some vocal schools offer performance opportunities & request performance signup fees, showcase fees and for students to pay for tickets to the show they are performing in. Performance experience and opportunities at the House of Voice are at NO ADDITIONAL SIGN UP COST
Unlock your True Sound:
Some training methods will mould your voice into a particular sound which is congruent with the typical pop sound or format your voice into a certain stylistic figure (whether that be in classical jazz musical theatre) that seems to takes you away from what makes your voice special! The truth is you can have both, sing pop/musicals/classical/jazz yet sound like you comfortably!
Mentored and Supported Learning:
We believe that it isn’t just our job to teach you vocal figures and give you tools and if you don’t get it, profess that you are not cut out to sing!
At HOV, its a team effort, so we make sure you are understanding the material and integrating every step of the way!
