Barbara Ann Grant is a highly experienced singing teacher. She studied at the Wellington Conservatory of Music, Victoria University and Oberlin Conservatory, Ohio, USA where she received a full tuition scholarship.

Barbara’s particular interest is in the transformative power of the human voice as a tool to boost self confidence and creativity. She has a solid grounding in classical technique, as her background includes studying the teaching of singing with Richard Miller, author of, ‘The Structure of Singing’. However, in her vocal studio Barbara teaches all styles, ages and stages. She says, “I firmly believe that you have to teach people using the songs they love to sing. That’s how you get engagement not only physically but emotionally and that’s how significant positive change can happen, not only vocally, but personally.”

A member of the New Zealand Choral Federation and the Association of Choral Directors Barbara also conducts two local choirs. She is also a committee member of the New Zealand Association of Teachers of Singing.
