Hi, I'm becky gilhespie,
A Vocal Coach.
I am an experienced coach of singer-songwriters, musicians, actors, and public speakers.
For many years I studied Speech Level Singing extensively with some of the top teachers, world-wide, including founder Seth Riggs (Michael Jackson, Stevie Wonder, Barbra Streisand, Evanescence, Josh Grobin and many others). I now keep up to date with the latest in vocal science and mindset training to bring this to my own studio. I’m always learning and growing as a teacher.
I teach singers online, around the world. I focus on achieving a healthy balance and strength throughout the entire range. I also enjoy helping singers bring out their innate creativity in order to emerge as the artists they wish to be.
I am very supportive, empathic and passionate about my students.
TRAINING YOUR VOICE
Your Healthiest Voice
Each session we will spend time balancing the voice and addressing any weak areas or strain. When your voice is healthy, it becomes free and flexible. A healthy voice feels good when singing. I will teach you how to nurture your voice and keep it in best shape.
Tailored Vocal Workout
I tailor your vocal workouts to you and your specific vocal needs. This may change in each session: if the voice is strained I will give you exercises to rehabilitate and decompress tension. If the voice requires more power, we will work on strength training and hitting the perfect accoustic to get dialled in, effortless power. We will work on agility and flexibility with challenging melodic patterns through all parts of your range.
All the while you will learn the key fundamentals of great singing, so you can play your instrument well.
I will help you reach your goals, whether that be to nail a key audition or achieve the best possible sound on your original songs. I will give you the tools to help you go the distance, and I will support you every step of the way. We will work on creating your unique sound and creative development as an artist. I will give you all the latest industry tips and tricks of the trade I've gathered over my 20 year career in music.

How Can I Help You?
I work with many professional vocalists, including recording artists, bands, speakers and stage actors. I work diligently with my clients on whatever they require to succeed in their performance career. Barns Courtney (pictured) has been a long-term student for the last decade. We work weekly together to ensure his voice is in best condition during his gruelling tour schedule.
Singers of all levels
I enjoy helping students discover their voice and achieve fast results with a foundation of solid technique and practices. Some students come with certain goals in mind and others come for a creative outlet and to have fun and learn a new skill. Everyone can learn to sing well and it’s very enjoyable in the process!
In my career I’ve had the honour of working with several people undergoing the transgender process with their vocal needs. This work has been extremely rewarding, and I wish to help others gain vocal freedom and alignment with their sense of self. Please contact me with any questions on this topic.
