Why Teach?

I have designed much of my training methods around simplicity for all ages and all abilities.  A challenging guitar program is also available for the advanced.


As a generation we are subjected to a great array of social media of which fragments much of our ability to express ourself.  We can become withdrawn and confused about our identity and our given right to be individual.  When I teach my students, I do so with this in mind.


My intention is to teach, inspire and enjoy.  Music is fun, satisfying and pleasing to the soul.  Watch as you, or your child shines like never before, through a variety of joyful musical learning experiences.

Move Forward and Stand Tall!


Your fun & exciting journey into music is about to begin, only you can make it happen  ~





A few years ago, I bought a guitar with the plan to teach myself or learn from the internet.  4 years later, I dusted it off and decided to get professional help. 


Michelle, at Voice & Strings specially customised a series of lessons to support my existing knowledge of music.  She took the time to find out exactly what my goals were and made sure the lesson content was relevant to my goals.  Her friendly, easy-going nature made learning the guitar an enjoyable experience. 


I'm so proud of what I have been able to achieve and I would highly recommend Michelle as a guitar teacher.

My daughter started guitar lessons with Michelle 3 months ago.  To be honest at first I was apprehensive about the cost of both the lessons and the added expense of the guitar, not to mention the fact that Gabby has tried a few extra curricula activities where she soon lost interest. 


However, Gabby had taken to the guitar with such enthusiasm and dedication I am thankful we decided to give it a go.  I am truly surprised at how quickly a child can learn the guitar. It is a real pleasure to have Gabby sitting in the kitchen practicing her songs…it sounds great. 


Michelle is not only a wonderful and very patient teacher but also a brilliant role model. 


Thank you Michelle!

My son, 10 year old Ethan has always wanted to play the guitar.  


Ethan has Down Syndrome so although I wanted him to learn this instrument I was very concerned about who I would get to teach him.   It would have to be someone who would be patient and give him the time he needs.  I was very happy when I found Michelle and she was willing to teach him.  I and my family are very happy that Ethan is learning an instrument he loves with a teacher who has all the patience and skill that is needed. 


Michelle has been wonderful in understanding Ethan’s needs and making his lessons very enjoyable.

My daughter commenced guitar lessons with “Voice & Strings” earlier this year and thanks to Michelle’s patient and enthusiastic teaching methods, she has come a long way in a short time.    The environment in which the class takes place is peaceful and professional and extremely welcoming.  My daughter has found a passion for music and wants to practise and continue to learn the many techniques made available to her. 


Michelle provides her students with appropriate written material to take home so they can continue to learn and practice in their own time, ready to advance in the following lesson. Her knowledge is exceptional and she has a great way of passing this onto her students in a simple and practical manner that allows the kids to have fun whilst learning.


Thanks Michelle for giving my daughter a passion that I hope will continue to grow as she does!!!
