Lea Baker (she / her) is a voice pedagogue, founder and director of ‘Raise Your Voice.’ With more than 20 years of experience learning about and teaching voice, Lea has an insatiable curiosity about all things vocal and in 2021 she graduated from NIDA with a Master of Fine Arts in Voice. Helping her students free up their voices for effortless and beautiful speech or singing is her passion. "I use a holistic approach to voice teaching and during my studies at NIDA learned the value of voice training for stage actors and how these techniques are extremely useful not only for singers but for anyone who has a high vocal load, such as teachers" Lea has a full-day course for teachers: 'Vocal health for teachers' which is available through Teacher Training Australia. Lea's teaching methods are firmly grounded in science. Through her understanding of the physiology of the voice, students learn the 'why' and the 'how' of optimal voice usage.
Lea is also an accomplished Musical Director and singer. She founded the Endeavour Harmony Chorus, one of Australia's premier female vocal ensembles. They've performed at the Opera House, won many awards and provided backing vocals on the original ‘Happy Feet’ movie. Learn more about the chorus here.

"The vocal lesson with Lea was so worthwhile.She was kind and encouraging and she was able to pinpoint issues with my vocal technique and demonstrate small corrections I could make. This resulted in an immediate improvement in my singing. I went away from the session with renewed confidence."
"I'm blown away with the improvement I have noticed in my singing since starting lessons with Lea. She is a talented teacher who presents you with a range of techniques - visual, auditory and kinaesthetic- to ensure you understand how to address a problem.
