Sam has worked as a primary Academic Lecturer at The Australian Institute of Music in Sydney since 2016, where she runs Contemporary and Music Theatre voice masterclasses, individual lessons, ensemble collaborations and theory/aural classes. Sam also leads the AIM choir and smaller elite vocal ensembles with a focus on Jazz and Contemporary vocal harmony, and specialises in mentoring graduates as they prepare for their transition into the global music industry.

Sam teaches privately from her studio in Hornsby Heights and online, coaching HSC singing students as they prepare for assessments and performances. Sam also offers lessons in piano, music theory and aural skills, helping students of all ages and levels find ways to express themselves through music.

With experience teaching group voice seminars in London and Malta, Sam’s knowledge of vocal technique and style combines with a strong theoretical background to provide versatility in her teaching method. Sam’s fresh approach to voice training combines science, skill, connection and creativity, with a focus on building performance confidence and refining repertoire to the highest standard. She also believes in the importance of connecting emotionally to what you are performing, in order to take your audience on a journey of catharsis.

Sam teaches a balanced vocal technique which covers the entire vocal mechanism – the vocal folds, the larynx and the relationship between airflow, muscle usage and resonance. Her goal is to help singers create a strong technical foundation so they have the tools to sing any style they wish and grow their confidence as performers.
