Singing & Vocal

We are the music makers,
And we are the dreamers of dreams,
— Arthur O’Shaughnessy

Everyone can sing!

Our voices are the most extraordinary musical instruments. The Sound Weaver (Jacinta Percy) is passionate about creating a space for you to discover and fall in love with your honest expression and unique sound.

Jacinta’s approach to singing is holistic. She invites you to free your natural voice by exploring your breath, mind, body and heart through vocal exercises, meditation, movement, Song & Sound. From this foundation, there is freedom to follow your curiosities and sing the music you love.

Jacinta’s role is to support you to let go of your inhibitions. She guides you to explore vocal freedom so that you can connect to your true sound.

All music genres, languages and ages welcome, from beginners to professionals — small group lessons available, e.g. duo or trio — private lessons are at Jacinta’s studio in Northcote.

Learning new ways of vocalising, performing and chanting take time, effort and patience. You may be changing habits that date back to your birth.

For both students and parents, it is important that each student develop a home practice. For beginning students, Jacinta recommends practising twice a week for around 10 - 15 minutes, and then over time, you can increase the time and days. Practice needs to come from a place of curiosity and willingness from the student. Learning new skills and coordination will not happen overnight; they take kindness, dedication and discipline.

At least 4 - 8 one hour lessons work best to learn the foundations of this Singing & Vocal training and practice.


~ Others experiences

I have had the privilege of learning about the power of voice, body and breath, the fundamental interconnection between all three from Jacinta for over ten years now. She offers something truly unique by drawing on her years of musical expertise, ability to truly listen and incredible intuition, using song and sound as a vehicle. Jacinta has not only helped me to discover my voice but has also encouraged me to embrace the challenges and nourish my inner child. I have loved every moment so far!

The [research] results showed that children who had started individual music lessons developed a better awareness of their “aim” and “force” in relation to their own motor skills as well as improving their “fluid intelligence” – which is the ability to solve new problems, use logic in new situations, and identify patterns.
