Some of Stuart's students have gone on to open shows for artists, such as Ed Sheeran and Mariah Carey, won NZ Music Awards, been finalists in shows such as NZ's Got Talent and worked with famous artists such as Babyface and Randy Jackson (American Idol).
Stuart is a regular guest lecturer on vocal pedagogy for the Contemporary Music Course at Massey University in Wellington and has conducted workshops at MAINZ and the Waikato Institute of Technology. Alongside teaching in New Zealand, Stuart regularly travels overseas to further his own teacher training in Australia and Los Angeles America.
Stuart has studied voice in Los Angeles under legendary vocal coach for the stars Seth Riggs (Voice coach for Stevie Wonder, Ray Charles, Josh Groban, Michael Jackson etc) and became the first and only teacher qualified to teach the Speech Level Singing method in New Zealand (A method used by over 120 GRAMMY Winners). During Stuart’s training period with Seth Riggs and the Speech Level Singing organisation, he worked extensively for over 7 years with all of Seth’s “SLS” Master Instructors. He is also New Zealand's only authorised Vocology In Practice instructor (VIP is a global network of elite voice professionals) and International Voice Teacher Of Mix (IVTOM) accredited teacher, and his unique teaching style is in-demand nationwide in New Zealand and overseas.

Don't take a risk with your instrument, get the most current, up to date training from the only New Zealand voice instructor endorsed by experts worldwide.
Here's what internationally respected professionals are saying about Stuart...
Stuart is one of the most passionate and dedicated voice teachers I know and I highly recommend him to anyone needing expert voice instruction.
Stuart has trained under New York celebrity vocal coach Wendy Parr and organised for her to visit NZ twice for nationwide workshops and teacher training.
Stuart has trained with Dave Stroud and brought him to NZ for a major workshop with Daniel Beddingfield (NZ X-Factor Judge) at the Bruce Mason Centre in 2012.
Stuart works regularly with Mindy Pack and together they have brought new vocal advancements to NZ such as the Voice Straw & Cup!
Stuart Clarke is one of the finest vocal instructors in New Zealand as far as rock and pop vocals are concerned. He is the only instructor qualified in New Zealand to teach the Seth Riggs technique, a highly advanced and natural approach to vocal technique that is used in every form of music.
Stuart has helped greatly to balance my voice and smooth out the breaks in my vocal range. His method of teaching provides a solid foundation to sing in any style of music safely and I highly recommend it.
I’ve been a professional singer and actor for nearly 15 years. The methods that Stuart teaches explores the areas of singing technique that I need to address. Every lesson with Stuart proved to produce new results that bring me closer to my goal.
Working with Stuart has given me a far greater understanding of how my voice really works and how to use it more effectively - this has been invaluable for the longevity for my voice during tours!
Stuart first met and studied with Ingo Titze in Los Angeles and has since attended many of his lectures on vocal science. He continues to receive regular training from Ingo through the VIP teacher network.
Stuart has attended vocal health workshops with Reena Gupta in Los Angeles and also refers students to her for examinations.
I’ve been going to Stuart for 3 years now, before going to Stuart I was having on going vocal problems from straining and incorrect vocal technique, I also had very limited range. Since going to Stuart I no longer have any vocal problems and my range and power has improved DRAMATICALLY. I am now hitting high notes I never thought I could have and singing a lot more freely!
Speech level singing changed my life! No more difficult explanations and technical jargon, just singing. I have tried so many techniques from estil to classical and this is the only one that has proven to be the most effective in reaching those high notes with ease and blending the register to create a seamless range.
