VIDEOS OF STUART'S STUDENTS & EVENTS
2012 Singing Intensive
In 2012 Stuart brought to NZ his vocal coach, Dave Stroud (Touring coach for American Idol) from Los Angeles for workshops alongside Daniel Beddingfield (X-factor judge)
Kristian Lavercombe (Riff Raff Rocky Horror Show)
"I’ve been a professional singer and actor for nearly 15 years. Years of mistreating my voice in shows combined with a lack of technique had started to take their tole. My voice is incredibly important to me, so finding a singing teacher that understood the problems was essential. The methods that Stuart teaches explores the areas of singing technique that I need to address. Every lesson proved to produce new results that bring me closer to my goal. I’m confident that these lessons will provide me with a technique that will enable me to handle the demands of my profession with ease."
Brad Dring (Rapture Ruckus NZ Tui Award 2007 "Best Gospel Album")
"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! In just one lesson I found I was singing with a lot more freedom and not having to push or yell to hit the high notes. I recommend his training for any artist wanting greater vocal range and a sustainable vocal career."
New Zealand's Got Talent Finalist
Stuart worked with NZ's Got Talent finalist Jessie Hillel on her classical/pop cross over album.
Stuart was asked to work with famous New Zealand boy band Titanium on their hit song Home, which received double platinum status in New Zealand. He also worked with them during their lead up to perform before Mariah Carey at Vector Arena.

Saxi (TV Star, Nomine for the LA Music Awards, Babyface)
"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 a 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 can sing a lot more freely. Stuart also helped greatly on the song I recorded called Lip Stick which I received NZ On Air funding for. I recommend him to anyone who wants to learn to sing or anyone who's having trouble with their voices!"
Jeremy Redmore (Midnight Youth)
"It was an awesome session for vocalists who think they may have reached their limits, but haven't... the SLS technique that Stuart teaches really opened my mind to where my voice could go - which was pretty scary! Stuarts’s vocal approach makes the high notes solid and easy, with no need to resort to falsetto (unless for some special effect). This approach is a valuable addition to making your styling easy and always available.
Island Boys Quartet (Most successful quartet in the southern hemisphere)
Stuart worked with the Island Boys leading up to their international championships.
