After a professional singing career of 29 years, Tracey Osmond's dream was to establish a contemporary singing school offering coaching to beginners through to professionals.
Tracey's love of teaching has seen her create a school offering an amazing environment for producing confident, well equipped singers who are able to realise their potential both on and off the stage.
A graduate of Griffith Qld Conservatorium, Tracey studied vocal pedagogy both in Australia and overseas to ensure that all who love contemporary voice now have an option to learn to sing safely!!
Tracey never takes for granted the incredible privilege she has been given to help someone find their true voice.
The spine tingling soul sounds of Mell Boyce have been growing and developing from an early age. Although Mell has been singing for as long as she can remember, she began performing on a competitive level at age 13. Growing up a small town Charters Towers girl, the natural progression for Mell was to start belting out tunes at all the local country music festivals.
The end of her final year at high school forced Mell to make the decision to take her music seriously, so after being accepted into the Gold Coast Conservatorium in 2008 she began developing her style and technique, and also began writing her, would be, first original album. However that same year, Mell felt a calling to Townsville. Although a seemingly crazy move at the time, the songstress would soon learn that this move may have been her best one yet.
Shortly after finding her feet in Townsville, Mell found herself singing weekly in front of crowds of hundreds at Calvary Christian Church. She decided to invest in some vocal coaching from Tracey Osmond at the highly regarded The Voice Singing School. After fine tuning her voice Mell has sice had many great opportunities to perform around Townsville. Functions such as, Nq tourism awards (2012), Half time entertainment for Townsville crocodiles game (New years eve 2013), Special Children's Christmas party, Stable on the strand , Calvary Christian church Christmas and carols productions. 2012 and 2013 offered mentoring and performing with Previous Australian Idol contestant Kim Cooper as well as a position on staff at The Singing School.
