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.
I have traveled to NZ twice to assist with Stuart's teaching programs and workshops. He is an amazing teacher and I recommend him to any singer needing help!
Stuart has trained with Dave Stroud for over 10 years and brought him to NZ for a major workshop with Daniel Beddingfield (NZ X-Factor Judge) at the Bruce Mason Centre in 2012.
I highly recommend him to anyone needing expert vocal instruction!
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 has studied with Ingo Titze in Los Angeles and attended many of his workshops. He continues to receive regular guidance on vocal science from Ingo through the VIP teacher network.
Stuart has taken part in Reena Gupta's workshops in Los Angeles and receives regular guidance from Reena through the VIP teacher network. He has also referred students with vocal health issues on to Reena.
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.
“I would like to take this opportunity to thank you for the two half – hour lessons which I feel will be invaluable for my future as a singer.I spent the next two days listening to the recordings and feel I have got a good grasp of the concept. Seth Riggs is the Voice God and you are one of his Angels and I will look forward to further lessons when you are back in Auckland.”

“In my first lesson with Stuart I learnt more than I had from several teachers over several years. He has an exceptional way of explaining the process of how the voice works, so you know how to connect your range from bottom to top. For once it all made sense! Stuart had me producing notes that I never knew I could hit and my voice was starting to sound whole with no breaks/flips between chest and head voice for the first time. Stuart has opened up many avenues in my singing and I highly recommend his teaching style and personality to people of all ages. He is very engaging and makes you want to strive for more, whilst keeping it fun and interesting. Thanks very much Stuart.” Sam Kelly (NZ Songwriter/Performer)

I enrolled in the voice course with an open mind. I had tried many things and for quite a long time to improve my voice, only with little progress. The expertise, experience and tools you demonstrated during the course, have helped me make amazing progress. My voice now have better clarify, great dynamics, rich variety which I have never imaged I could achieve. A better voice no doubt would help improve confidence and career development.A bonus is that I can sing much better!
I am grateful for your coaching.
