Liz Du -

"I had great lessons with Jacinda for almost a year, I've learned so much. As a trans person, I've improved both my female and male singing voice and also noticed my speaking voice has improved a lot. Her lessons were enjoyable with lots of fun exercises and guided me through various songs I wanted to sing."


Kieren Johnstone -

"Jacinda is very friendly and a highly knowledgeable teacher. She gave me general singing confidence, as well as helping me overcome many specific issues I was struggling with. I always look forward to lessons! Working over Zoom the past year has been good fun - I've learned many songs so far and my technique has improved massively."


Amy Willington -

"Jacinda and Lu are incredibly talented, professional and kind people, with a clear passion for what they do/teach at the Vocal Academy. Not only has my voice improved beyond what I thought it was capable of, but my confidence in myself and talent has too. Starting singing lessons with Jacinda has been one of the best things I could’ve possibly done during this pandemic, with my singing lessons becoming the highlight of my week. I can’t express enough how grateful I am for The Vocal Academy."
