  • positive review  Petra is a wonderful singing tutor and coach. She has the perfect balance between working on technique and emotional engagement of a song, whilst encouraging exercises beyond the repertoire to develop the voice. Petra is also one of the most patient coaches ever, I've been her student for a while now and really happy with how things are progressing!

  • positive review  Petra has been very helpful in me helping MY clients and students! I asked her to come speak to a class I was teaching about boundaries in the studio. Her knowledge and experience in psychology make her highly intuitive, while giving her the ability to call out people to their best selves. I recommend Petra highly when you need performance anxiety help, as well! Thank you, Petra, for your work in this area!

  • positive review  I have a private voice studio on Vancouver Island in Canada and I just completed the Mental Health for the voice studio course. I am so grateful that Petra has made the material available in this on line format. She presents the information very clearly and the slides are helpful in following the lecture. I really appreciate that someone with Petra’s credentials, both in vocal teaching and psychology, is willing to share this valuable information with us so that we are able to be not only kind and compassionate teachers, but also more well informed ones as well.

  • positive review  Petra had been on my radar for some time. I asked her to help me address my mindset recently when navigating a health challenge. I really appreciated combination of somatic and cognitive work - it helped me get out of the intellectual zone and into the body zone which was exactly what I needed. Now when my challenge raises its head, I have strategies for 'tuning in' and am coping far better. Petra's work on the emotional, psychological and somatic self can really help you move forward if you are feeling stuck.
