Professional Singer & Voice Coach

Sophie Yaeger

Sophie is a singing and voice performance specialist, whose approach is to guide individuals to utilize their voice to its maximum potential while maintaining optimal vocal health.

To accomplish this Sophie uses a a combination of science based techniques, traditional voice methods, and bodywork techniques plus encouraging a healthy mental outlook for peak vocal use. The voice is an extremely complex and personal instrument which involves ones whole self and body, not just your vocal folds. Any form of misuse, tension, stress or emotional strain can lead to unwanted or potentially serious issues.

Sophie has developed a holistic coaching style utilising various methods as she has witnessed this to bring out exceptional results in singers and speakers. Every voice is unique, so must the training of it be to discover how each voice works at its best.

While singing is exciting and enjoyable, training can sometimes be daunting and frustrating so it is important for a student to find a coach/teacher who not only has exceptional knowledge and skill of the voice but with whom you can be yourself, have absolute trust and be able to build a rapport with.

Sophie aim's to create an atmosphere where her clients feel safe and excited to explore where their voice can go. No matter how big or small your goal, Sophie loves helping people free their voices.
