Entertainer, Singer, Actress, Vocal coach, Speech and Drama coach.
Classically trained by New Zealand Opera Singer Kathi Craig.
Discovering that Musical Theater and Classical are her forte, Lissy was fortunate enough for Kathi to take her on as one of her few students. Learning invaluable lessons about voice, Lissy gives credit to Kathi for her knowledge in classical training.
Vocal and Drama coach at ‘Groove and Flow Dance Collaboration’.
Requiring high energy, knowledge, lesson planning and a big imagination, Lissy taught for the upbeat and dynamic dance school for two years with students ranging from four years of age to fifteen years of age, designing her own drama and vocal program to suit the needs of the students and executing the works in a show at the end of each year.
Director and founder at ‘Miss Lissy’s Performing Arts School’.
Miss Lissy’s has been many years in the making. Realizing that we only have one life to live, Lissy made her thing into her day job. Teaching children as young as two and adults into their mature years she finds the utmost joy in passing on her knowledge and igniting or re-igniting their love of music. With energies bouncing, ideas running rampant, Lissy lives and breathes the arts and has energy to burn for her students. Running workshops and holiday programs or performing herself she is always busy doing what she loves.
