Let me guide you on your path to finding YOUR voice. Goals come in all shapes and sizes and are as unique as you are. Whether your goal is to become a professional singer or be more confident at karaoke, singing around the campfire or recording a hit song, give a dynamite theatre audition or perform in the chorus, become a star soloist or join your church choir, give a speech at a wedding, or land that big account with an awesome presentation, I can help.

As an experienced voice teacher and performer, I will create lessons that coach you and develop the necessary skills to make your vocal dreams come true.


 

2018 Students - June Cafe Performance - Diversity - 38 Songs (2nd Half With a Rock Band)

2018 Students - June Cafe Performance - Diversity - 38 Songs (2nd Half With a Rock Band)

Quarterly Student Performances.

The end of year student performance was held June 25th at Montreal Real Foods on Kirschner.  Wow! What a Show!! 3.5 hours of music with a FULL house of family and friends. Many performers had their best ever moments. Each student performed two songs and the second half of the show was with a full ROCK band. The choir performances of Because (by the Beatles) and Bohemian Rhapsody were amazing! Well done everyone!!

Four times a year, voice students of Kelowna Voice Lab have the opportunity to perform their songs in a casual, relaxed environment at a cafe or restaurant in Kelowna. The next student cafe will be Tuesday, December 18th at 7:00pm.

The public is invited to attend: coffee, tea, wine, beer and food are all available for purchase.

Each performance has a different theme ranging from Musical Theatre to Love Songs to Holiday Songs. The variety of musical styles helps the singers stretch their vocal ability and have fun exploring a style they might not otherwise be drawn towards.

Kim accompanies the students on a keyboard but often her husband Jim adds guitar or she might play bass depending on the song. Occasionally, students might also sing with pre-recorded tracks depending on which form of accompaniment best serves the song. The end of year show features all students performing two songs as well as together in two choir numbers.

The student cafes are a great chance for novice and experienced singers alike to perform in the supportive and non competitive environment that friends and family provide. Performing regularly helps singers conquer the nervous jitters often associated with big "end of the year" performances and "slay the performance dragon".

    At a little over my 'three score and ten" with some rather depressing medical issuesI decided to try and recussitate my voice,which had never been great in the first place. It's a bit of an uphill struggle but very enjoyable. Kim is a patient,supportive and very creative teacher. Recently I visited some musical friends whom I last saw two years ago,just after I started lessons and theis comment was 'what a remarkable difference" and 'I didn't think you could get that far" Side effects-my husband comments on the boost to my overall morale. During medical tests I have been complimented on my lung capacity and breath control-which one tech credited with shortening the procedure by about a third. Thank you Kim

    I am a novice singer and always believed that I had a horrible singing voice until I attended Kelowna Voice Lab, Kim is a very patient and excellent teacher and helped me find my natural singing voice. I now sing in public with confidence. I have learned so much from her from how to breathe properly, project my voice and how to sing in the proper key. I would very strongly recommend Kim.

    Kim is a lovely, talented and enthusiastic teacher with a true love of music. i studied with her as an adult, taking voice lessons for the first time. I always wanted to learn to sing but was terrified of singing in front of others. Not only did Kim teach me the necessary vocal skills, she helped me feel more comfortable and confident. I went on to front a local band. Success!

    I just wanted to say thank you so much for teaching my husband.. It took him a long time to work up the nerve to actually go to your lessons after I gave him a gift certificate, but now that he has, he seems so thrilled about them! I am enjoying seeing him so excited about practicing the exercises you have sent home. He's always told me how much he likes to sing. It's a real joy to me seeing how excited he is about going to singing lessons. Thank you so much!

    I have just received an audio recording of my 6 year old grand daughter from Kim in my email. Well to say i was proud would be an understatement. I am a musician so I appreciate what I heard. Kim is doing an amazing job with my grand daughter in such a short period of time and she loves it. "thank-you" Kim for what you do so extremely well!

Dylan Sterling Memorial Bursary

On May 15, 2014 my oldest son Dylan Martin Sterling passed away in his sleep from heart failure. 

To honour Dylan's beautiful life and his passion for electronic music, a bursary has been established in his name to help other young aspiring musicians pursue a career in music at Nimbus Music School in Vancouver. On May 15, 2015, our family presented the first $1,000 bursary at a student assembly in Vancouver and continues to present this bursary each May.

Here is our family presenting the bursary this year to a lovely young woman who is destined to make her mark on the music industry. 

You can learn more about this amazing young man who was lost far too soon, see pictures, hear his music, view the hundreds of hand-painted stones that have been placed in his honour all over the world and donate to the bursary by visiting Dylan's memorial website at: www.DylanSterling.net.
