Adult Music Lessons

Learning music offers adults a chance to reconnect with their own creativity and tap into their innate musical abilities. Many adults may have had musical interests or experiences in their youth that they wish to revisit or develop further. Learning music as an adult allows them to reignite their passion for music and rediscover the joy of playing an instrument or singing.

"Hi, my name is Tony. I am a 55 year old man and I have some things to say about Songlines Music Studio. I started vocal coaching with Songlines after many years of neglecting my singing voice. Learning music at Songlines has given me the confidence to express my deep love of music, through public performances, eisteddfods, and exams. Being with the studio has provided me with consistency and purpose through some massive life challenges. I have also recently begun learning to play the piano, to use in my job as an early childhood teacher, proving that you can teach an old dog new tricks. I would wholeheartedly recommend Songlines Music Studio to anyone of any age or gender, who wants to improve their singing, musical knowledge and boost their confidence in performing."

Drama & Theatre Performance

Speech and drama lessons with a focus on vocal techniques offer numerous benefits for individuals seeking to improve their communication skills, expressiveness, and overall vocal abilities. Students learn how to project their voice, articulate clearly, and use appropriate vocal tones, dynamics, and inflections to convey their message effectively. These skills are invaluable in public speaking, presentations, acting, and any situation where clear and confident communication is essential.

Through vocal exercises, students learn how to breathe properly, support their voice, and develop resonance, allowing them to speak or perform with clarity, power, and endurance. These techniques are crucial for maintaining vocal health and preventing strain or fatigue. Students learn to enunciate words and sounds accurately, enhancing their overall communication skills and ensuring their message is understood by others.

Speech and drama lessons often incorporate improvisation and role-playing exercises, which strengthen spontaneity, creativity, and adaptability. These skills are valuable in both personal and professional settings, enabling individuals to think on their feet, respond effectively to unexpected situations, and present their ideas with confidence and clarity.

HSC, AMEB Exam & Eisteddfod preparation

We ensure that students are well-prepared and aware of the specific skills and knowledge required to succeed in exams and performances. We tailor instruction to the individual student's strengths and areas for improvement, assess the student's current level, identify weaknesses, and design a personalised study plan to address those areas effectively. Everything you need to ace your music exams!


Our program encompasses stagecraft, working with an accompanist along with their vocal preparation, technique and genre changes. We simulate exam-like conditions during practice sessions, helping students become comfortable with the pressure and time constraints of the actual exam.

Music Theory & Musicianship

Learning music theory and receiving formal musicianship education provide numerous benefits for aspiring musicians. Understanding music theory equips musicians with a deeper knowledge and comprehension of the inner workings of music. It enables them to analyze and interpret musical compositions, recognize patterns, and make informed musical choices. This knowledge enhances their overall musicianship and creativity. Formal musicianship education also helps develop a strong foundation in reading and interpreting sheet music. It enables musicians to understand musical symbols, notation, rhythm, and harmony, allowing them to accurately reproduce music and collaborate effectively with other musicians.

Our Music theory and Musicianship lessons help students trying to gain entry to tertiary education and certifications in Music Degree Courses and Conservatoriums.
