Bio

Everyone can learn to sing. The best way is to start and develop as you grow.

With guidance and awareness you’ll inevitably improve and begin to achieve the goals you wish to.

With over 16 years of experience teaching, Lisa assists singers to gain confidence and skill whether in groups, choirs or individuals pursuing roles, professional performances, breaking out solo or singing for a wedding. Her students have recovered their voices from challenges, they’ve got the help to finally do what they’ve always wanted. Students have learnt to play guitar, got auditions, represented NZ at the WORLD Championship of performance art, been told they’re singing so much better and even been able to give their fellow singers advise.

Lisa Tui’s Iwi are Ngati-Scottish, Tainui & Ngati Kahungungu and she is a Mid-Canterbury lass when it comes down to it. Lisa has had many professional singing and performance experiences and she’s always looking for opportunities to learn, study and experience more. She is passionate about empowering education and has studied music pedagogy, NLP and adult education also.

A NASDA (Music theatre) degree graduate from A.R.A., Lisa also received a Graduate Diploma with an endorsement in Studio teaching from Otago University, Dunedin. She is a singer/songwriter, she performs, conducts a four part harmony Gospel choir (Bright on Vibes), and the Lincoln University Choir. Lisa helps foster songwriting by curating the Freakin’ Awesome Songwriters Clinic with Charlotte Yates and from her studio at the XCHC Christchurch Lisa teaches individual students.
