About Me

Are you looking for fun and relaxed voice coaching that leads to real results & understanding?

Have you experienced vocal teaching that focuses exclusively on “breathing to your diaphragm”? Is simply “supporting the breath” actually helping you hit those high notes and achieve a stronger sound? Or do you have a feeling there might be more to it than that? Do you know what your false vocal folds are, and how they hinder your singing – and can even cause vocal damage? Do you know what is actually going on in your larynx when you change from “chest voice” to “head voice”?

My name is Bec Tilley, and I’m a singing teacher & voice coach based in Melbourne. Gaining a true understanding of the way the voice works has changed my life and my voice, and I’ve seen and heard the same remarkable effect from my students – whether they are complete beginners to singing, or advanced level professional vocalists.

In one lesson, I can teach you how to control one of many simple physical mechanisms in your voice which can potentially open up a whole new world of possibility of freedom, health, versatility, and power. My goal is to make every lesson valuable, enjoyable, and not waste your time and money with exercises-for-the-sake of-exercises.

And it has to be FUN, or else why bother?!

Singing doesn’t have to be a frustrating pursuit, a trial-and-error practice that leaves you feeling like you’re stuck forever with the apparent limitations of your voice. Voice teachers often use esoteric instructions and imagery which might mean different things to different people, and often leave vocalists confused as to what exactly they’re supposed to be doing.

If you want to get real results from your practice, you need coaching from a down-to-earth teacher with a true understanding of vocal physiology. Imagine understanding exactly what you need to practice in order to achieve the particular sound you’re chasing, or move past the one limitation that has frustrated you for years!

This approach is equally valuable to those with many years of singing experience as it is to complete beginners to singing. It is also applicable to strengthening and improving the speaking voice in any context.

If this sounds good to you, get in touch by phone or email to get started!

"I always look forward to lessons with Bec. She's fantastic to work with. She has a
really fun, positive and genuine way of relating to me as a student, and the lessons are
individually designed. She keeps great records and regularly informs me of my
progress. I highly recommend her!"
Tabitha Fletcher

"Bec Tilley has always listened, not just to what my voice is doing when I sing, but also
listened to my thoughts on what I want to do with my voice. Bec has always been able
to give me practical advice, that I understand, without hesitation, then show that it
works. Bec has been ready to work on as many aspects of singing as I've been able to
think of: the anatomical, the emotional, rhythm, clarity, strength, performance, practice
and every time I've come up with something else, Bec has been ready to share ideas
and show me ways to improve from the level I'm at. Most importantly, Bec has really
encouraged me with her positive manner, by her thoughtful perception and, amazingly,
by using my own voice to demonstrate its own possibilities."
