Now based in Melbourne, Australia, Lisa Perks started her singing and teaching career in the UK. In this podcast she talks about moving to a new country as a well established singing teacher, and having to completely start over with her teaching practice. One of the ways she built her new business was to put on singing and training events. Lisa shares some of the benefits and the lessons learnt from putting on major events.
As with many singing teachers today Lisa has begun to take a more holistic approach to teaching, recently incorporating Meribeth Bunch Dayme’s Core Singing strategies. Lisa reveals a mindset break through she experienced after suffering from three voice surgeries and significant damaged voice. She explains how this break through has changed her attitude towards teaching, and is spurning a new teaching service. Line and Lisa discuss the benefits and pitfalls of teacher related Facebook groups and other such teachery stuff.
