Singing Classes

Unlock Your Voice (North Sydney)

Singing makes your child happy! Along with many other benefits, Unlock Your Voice passionately believes that singing lessons for kids are wonderful for every child to enjoy.

Most children love to sing, but often don’t have the confidence or natural skill to do so. It is not uncommon for children to sing out of tune if they haven’t had lessons to show them how to use their voice, they simply enjoy singing and are not inhibited.

Music Classes

International School of Music Turramurra

North Shore Mums Offer: Free trial lesson for group classes.
