Sight Singing and Aural Skills
Chloe Lankshear is a Sydney based soprano and recent graduate of the Sydney Conservatorium of Music. Prior to university she studied violin, alto saxophone, sang with Gondwana Voices and played in the Canberra Youth Orchestra. Chloe has enjoyed a well rounded professional career ranging from operatic productions to being a permanent member of St James King Street Choir. Through these experiences she has honed her aural transcription and sight singing skills as they are necessary for the fast pace of contractual music engagements. Chloe is a supportive and holistic teacher of aural and sight singing skills. Coming from a family of teachers, she is able to tailor curricula to each individual's needs in a way that is easily understood. She understands that not every instrumental musician is comfortable singing aloud, and is able to help build confidence in her students. While she is a classically trained soprano, Chloe has experience singing and teaching in a varying styles such as Jazz, Music Theatre, Contemporary and Baroque Opera. Vocal coaching and exam preparation sessions are available as one off workshops and are subject to availability. Please do email if you would like more information.
At 2:1 music studio, we offer 1 on 1 lessons for students who are in need of sight singing and aural transcription training for upcoming tests or university entry examinations. For students aspiring to continue music at university, sight singing and aural transcription skills are a requirement for the degree and prior knowledge of both is a huge advantage. Prior to this training it is necessary for students to have a basic understanding of music theory, the ability to accurately read notation, and understand rhythmic values.

but who do not have foundational music theory knowledge, please do write to us!
Utilising our own musical education, we can cater to and accommodate students
