About Deborah Louise

Born in the UK, Deborah grew up in Melbourne, Australia from the age of 2. Her love for singing dance and music was evident from the young age of 8 yrs, she loved listening to Kate Bush, David Bowie, Deborah Harry – Blondie, Sting and the Rolling Stones which became her main music influences later on with her own projects and performing as well as a very eclectic broad range of other artists and music over the years including Opera. Deborah trained in figure ice skating for 5 years from the age of 10 which lead to ballet and jazz dance training and voice training from the age of 15. She has continued to attend dance class throughout her life. It wasn’t long before Deb was inspired to head overseas to London and NYC where her long awaited aspirations to seriously pursue singing, dance and acting really took off at the age of 22. She scored a dance scholarship in NYC at the infamous Steps on Broadway and attended dance classes at the Alvin Ailey American Dance Theatre NYC and Broadway Dance Centre, where she studied classical ballet, lyrical jazz, hip hop and modern contemporary dance for 7 years. Deb soon discovered the broad opportunities the music scene in NYC had to offer.  She studied voice with New York celebrity vocal coaches – vocal coach to Billy Porter and other well known artists and later went on to co write, produce and record her own original songs performing these at the infamous CBGB Gallery and The Bitterend in NYC. Deb studied acting at The New School in NYC. Deborah has wonderful fond memories of New York that she cherishes dearly with deep gratitude, to have met her teachers and mentors who helped guide and encourage her every step of the way means the world to her as she now loves to pass on this invaluable knowledge to her own students.  Deb was very fortunate and humbled to have met many respected and well known artists in NYC including Sean Lennon, Sheryl Crow, Lenny Kravitz, Deborah Harry, Billy Porter, Cyndi Lauper, Rob Thomas, Joan Jett just to name a few and wait for it Bill Clinton! Deb went back to the UK in the late 90’s and again in the mid 2000’s to further explore her love of acting and studied dance at the infamous Pineapple Dance Studios in London for 1 year. She returned to Melbourne Australia in 2000 where she continued to hone in on her love and passion for singing, dance and acting and continues to do so today inspiring and empowering a multitude of aspiring singers and artists at her founded and home grown studio The Art Of Voice Australia first established in Melbourne in 2004. Deb relocated her business to the Gold Coast in 2012 where she has resided and continued to teach singing for the past 12 years. As an aspiring actor Deb continues to pursue acting roles in film and TV as well as her career as a vocalist and performer.

Deborah’s wonderful clients

My son started with Deb only a few months ago. I have noticed such an improvement in such a short amount of time! Deb is really understanding and really works with him to make the most of his lessons. Can’t wait to see what 2016 brings!

I can’t speak highly enough of Deborah. She is knowledgeable, professional and great to be around. Our lessons consist of warm ups, vocal strengthening, singing and laughing. Singing in front of people is like opening up your soul for everyone to see, this makes most people very nervous, me very much so, but Deb puts you at ease, and you feel comfortable and safe. She always pushes to get the best out of you, and knows how far you can go. I always enjoy our lessons, and look forward to many more.

I’m so happy I discovered Deborah and The Art of Voice. Deb is an amazing singing coach and very inspiring to work with. I have always been nervous to sing in front of others but at my first lesson Deb made me feel comfortable straight away. Each week I look forward to my lesson, the warm ups and the singing, and each week my confidence grows and my singing improves. I’m so grateful to have the opportunity to learn from Deb and I would highly recommend her to anyone looking for a vocal coach on the Gold Coast.

Deborah is a great vocal teacher. Her years of experience and teaching really shine through. She will give you personalised feedback for whatever stage you are at, beginner or advanced. In your first lesson she will break it down into byte size pieces that you can practice any time or anywhere, at any skill level and develop from. You will become a better Communicator, Speaker and Singer if you practice and implement her simple lessons.

Our youngest daughter is thoroughly enjoying her lessons with Deborah. She is gaining confidence and looks forward to singing each week. She is very comfortable in Deborah’s company because of her lovely gentle manner. This is a big thing for a child that didn’t speak to her teacher for a whole year! Deborah is a very passionate and motivated teacher who puts her heart into her work. I would highly recommend her as a singing coach.

I started seeing Deborah in July 2014. As a 34 year old woman, I was very nervous and felt very vulnerable. Deb put me at ease straight away and in no time I was very relaxed and comfortable. Deb is extremely knowledgable and with her many years of experience, makes me feel very confident that I am getting the vert best coaching. I now am extremely comfortable to sing and have learnt so much from her, I look forward each week to my lesson and am so excited how far my voice has come, I would highly recommend Deb to anyone and can confidently say that you would be getting extremely good coaching from one of the best in the industry here on the Gold Coast.

I have searched for a good vocal coach high and low and finally found the right one. If you want find YOUR VOICE, Then Deborah’s lessons are for YOU! Before I started having vocal coaching lessons off Deb 15 months ago, I sung like a choking cat…luckily Deb knew exactly how to tailor the lessons to get me and my voice working like it is now. Deb’s lessons are tailored to the individuals needs, because everybody’s different right, and everybody has there own unique voice..and you need personally tailored lessons for YOU.. Because learning from the same cd that everyone gets, is NOT how you learn to sing…its technique, practice and custom lessons for you and the things that you need to work on….this is the best way to learn…and with Deb’s knowledge, skill set and experience in New York and Melbourne, she will have you singing your favourite song like you always wanted to before you know it!!! I would 100% recommend Deborah to anybody that wants to REALLY SING…this is her way of bringing out the best in you….so don’t just think about it… just do it!

I’ve been seeing Deborah for over 3 months now and it’s been one of the best decisions I’ve made in a long time. Deb clearly has a lot of experience and knowledge but on top of that, she has a huge heart and a passion for the arts. This combination of expertise and a warm disposition is the best that any student could possibly hope for in a coach. She certainly makes it much easier to love the very vulnerable challenges and processes in learning how to sing. So I do recommend Deb to any nervous closet singers like me who want to develop their voice. She will take such good care of you and your voice!”

I started singing lessons with Deb about 6 months ago, having no experience except a yearning to learn. I was very nervous. Deb is very caring and patient. Her support, vocally and in general, has helped build my self confidence to create much enjoyment in expressing myself through singing. She takes you through stages according your ability, sends recordings of warm-ups to assist you with practice, makes the lessons fun, offers great suggestions with song interpretation, and is overall a lovely person. I now look forward to the idea of performing one day! Highly recommend.

I have been a student at The Art Of Voice for two years. From the moment I walked into Deborah’s beautiful studio I felt welcomed and supported by her warm demeanor and her genuine passion for teaching. Deborah has a deep understanding of vocal technique her teaching style is not only informative, but she is also incredibly encouraging, making me feel comfortable in stepping out of my comfort zone enabling me to express myself and in doing so allowing me to discover and develop my own unique voice. Deborah is a fantastic mentor and her passion for singing is infectious, she is patient and truly dedicated with each lesson tailored to suit individual needs and goals. I highly recommend Deborah to anyone looking to discover and find their voice. Whether you are a beginner like me at the age of sixty-four or an experienced vocalist Deborah has the expertise, passion, and dedication to take you on your own unique singing journey. In fact, my nine-year-old granddaughter is now also singing with Deborah and it’s the highlight of her week, she just “loves singing with Deb”.

I’ve been taking my 5 year old for over 1 year and have nothing but good things to say. Josh is a quiet kid and being able to express himself through singing has improved his confidence in every day life. Thank you Deb!
