Welcome. I hope you find a melody, a word,
an insight or inspiration that sings to you.
Lisa Tui: Singer Songwriter
The Lyttleton Port is a special place only minutes from my home, round a bend, up a hill and through a tunnel. It's an enchanting and artistic township. One of Michael J Foxes movies was shot there back in the 1980's, a movie about ghost and goolies, with Peter Jackson directing. I have loved every creative experience I've had there, from singing in the streets and acting on trailers to concerts and cabarets.
This song is a love story set at a piano bar, watched by the eyes of the moon and in front the Harbour. Created by poet Lesley McKay and written for song and performed by myself and Gary Easterbrook. It was recorded at Orange Studio, June, 2017
Learn to sing & Join a Class
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 17 years of experience teaching, I have been assisting singers to gain confidence and skill whether in groups, choirs or individuals pursuing roles, professional performances, breaking out solo or singing for a wedding. 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.
When you're ready or rather when you're brave to go for it I offer private tuition for individuals and Sing Gym Sessions for singers wishing to improve their abilities on a regular basis amongst like minded people on a term by term basis.
