“I had the pleasure of touring throughout the United States Canada Mexico and in the Caribbean with my mother Amanda Ambrose from the age of 14. Being able to entertain so many audiences really had an incredible impact on me at an early age.Performing inspired me to become a singing coach as well as a voice coach enabling me to help others to be able to do the same. I feel that inspiring and helping people to feel better and feel happy is an important part of any persons activity in life. I get extreme pleasure from being a singing coach and talent developer and seeing the advancement of students as they go from uncertainty about their own sense of beauty and creativity to having certainty and confidence.
My voice students know that they can create the effect they are trying to create on an audience. That’s what having confidence is all about.
Helping the thousands of the peoples I have helped over the past 25 years with their singing, songwriting and performing through voice lessons and our wonderful Voicercise™ vocal exercises makes me so happy every day.” - Naomi T Kaye
“I have been a professional pianist, composer and singer for 46 years. I’ve performed in theaters, college concerts and night clubs. I’ve done T.V specials and been a guest on major talk shows. I’ve toured in concerts across the US, Canada, West Indies and Europe and continued to do so.The joy I found in singing compelled me to find some way to help others share this joy. Through long study and experience I have discovered hidden conditions that prevent a person from singing. I understand the fear people have of performing. I have developed a technology that will eliminate these conditions.
Voicercise™ is a breakthrough in singing which can revitalize any lost or hidden desires you might have to sing. If you have a problem with your voice or with singing in general you will notice rapid improvement.
Through my Singing Coaching using the Voicercise singing techniques, my students have told me of abilities regained that they felt were long lost and of the joy of rediscovering them. ” -Amanda Ambrose
