Andy Medina - Contemporary Vocal Lessons

I am a professional singer with over 20 years experience. I was raised in Wollongong and
lived in Sydney in my 20s and moved to Blue Mountains with my partner and kids in 2014.
For as long as long as I can remember, I have been drawn to music and interpreting song.
My two older sisters are also singers, and as children, we loved to pass the time singing
our favorite songs and working out harmonies. Through out my own schooling, I performed in many a choir and talent show. I began learning guitar at 15, as a way of having my own accompaniment, which grew my interest in songwriting. From the age of 16 I have performed my own songs and covers in various venues all over Wollongong, Greater Sydney and the Blue Mountains. I have recently completed studying a Bachelor of Contemporary Performance majoring in Voice, at the Australian Institute of Music (AIM).

My goal, as a vocal coach, is to pass on my knowledge and experience as a performer/
singer songwriter, while helping to nurture my students individual style… And have fun!
