Patricia (Trish) Rooney Band

I had such a great night performing with such an incredible band last week! I found it so difficult to find time to sing because of the amount of teaching I was doing – but this year I am making sure that I prioritise everything and get back singing and performing again.

Vocal Coach Teacher Training Course


I am really looking forward to running my second teacher training course at The Cork School of Music this April.

This is an intensive 2 day course that looks at basic voice science, energy & awareness, group vs individual teaching methods, strategies for dealing with the different kinds of issues faced by singers, lesson plans, live teaching observations, psychology and lots more!
