Hello and Welcome to my Tauranga Singing Studio – Viva Voce!

I am Andrew Braid, a retired schoolteacher with 42 years experience of teaching in New Zealand State Primary and Intermediate Schools holding senior management positions for the greater part of my working life.

‘Viva Voce’ is an Italian term, translates as ‘living voice’ and this is the interest and passion which now gives me focus in life, to foster and develop singers in ‘reaching for the stars’.

I present the opportunity of a package deal really –

  • Singing Lessons – Generally comprises of one singing lesson per week.
  • Performance Skill Training – Includes training in effective song delivery and use of microphone in a practical concert environment.
  • Recording Facilities – Includes recording and mastering those ‘special’ or ‘favourite’ songs.

If this sounds like you, then I invite you to read on and explore my website or contact me.

Maybe I can be of service to you….

    Student Testimonial

    "I had reservations about taking up vocal training. However Andrew has become a true inspiration to me as I continue to pursue my goals in singing and performance. He also helped me build my confidence in ways in which I feel comfortable. Thanks to Andrew, I am very pleased with the progress I have made". - Robert Kramers
