This is an engaging and interactive class for singers with a passion for contemporary music of all styles. Students will learn basic singing skills and techniques designed to develop their voices and confidence, including exercises to improve their range, dynamic ability and performance skills.

Students will have the opportunity to sing individually with Jo in order to focus on the areas that are most important to each student’s individual development. These individual workshops will culminate with two performances throughout the term after which students will receive direct feedback from Jo so that they can continue to develop and refine their performance skills.

The course also has a strong focus on developing performance skills such as stage presence, managing performance anxiety and mic technique.

Entry-level: Some basic singing experience is recommended but not essential. Suitable for singers up to intermediate level.

Students will explore:

Vocal warm and cool down
Technical exercises to strengthen the voice, increase range and develop a consistent tone across the whole voice
Basics and breathing and support
Vocal anatomy – Understanding how your voice works
Vocal Hygiene – How to look after and get the best out of your voice
Performance techniques
How to pick the right key for your song
Phrasing and lyric interpretation
Singing with confidence and overcoming performance anxiety
How to work with an accompanist
This is a fun class that is designed to help singers explore their own voices and develop their singing, confidence and performance in a supportive and safe environment.

NOTE: Students are expected to bring 3 songs to the first class (sheet music not required for week 1 but you will need to purchase the sheet music after confirming your chosen song. The average cost of this is $10). Jo will help each student pick the song which they will work on from those three options.


This course is highly recommended because of its practical content, a blend the course with a little bit of theory and a little bit of practice. The blended approach was effective in reaching out to learners from different levels

Jo was an incredible tutor who made sure that every person felt included and supported while at the same time continuing to challenge us week to week.

Jo Fabro is absolutely amazing! The Studio with Jo Fabro has changed my life.

Jo is a fabulous teacher. She understands the fundamentals of the body and the voice, and how best to use them. She communicates, is fun, and creates a welcoming environment.

Jo is the most proficient performer and teacher I have ever met. Moreover, she is the best in establishing a close connection with each of her students. Incredible!
