“Carmel has been an incredible colleague for the past 15 years. I’ve worked with Carmel on many projects. Her versatility as a singer and performer is extraordinary. Carmel is a wonderful vocalist, engaging performer and gifted teacher. I was privileged to direct Carmel in many productions with Spud Murphy (Musical Director and Orchestrator for the musical Priscilla Queen of the Dessert).
We were also fortunate to have Carmel teach at the Australian Institute of Music in the voice department.
Her understanding of the voice and its connection to music and lyric enabled our students to develop their singing skill and confidence. Singing with the ear of a musician, the imagination of an actor and the body awareness of a dancer.”

“Our daughter is now in her 4th year of tuition at The Singing Room. The enormous progress she has made in all aspects of her singing is very evident. The methods Carmel uses are professional and effective. In addition to this, our daughter’s growth into a well balanced young woman has clearly been aided by the mentorship she receives at The Singing Room. It has been a very positive experience for us, so much so that our young son now also attends lessons at The Singing Room.”
– Francisca (Mother of Mieke & Karl)
“I have known Carmel since I was 13 years old. Her passion for singing instantly inspired me to work hard towards my goals. She is nurturing and encouraging with a wealth of knowledge of music and the industry. I found her fun loving attitude conducive to a productive learning environment and I have no doubt that she is one of the reasons that I am where I am today.”

“Nicky has been attending singing lessons with Carmel at the Singing Room for almost 2 years. Her vocal training has assisted in building her confidence, vocal technique and overall performance skills. She looks forward to singing every weekly lesson with enthusiasm. All this preparation will prepare her for the successful completion of her HSC exam. We look forward to the Musical Showcases every year and mid year where the students can perform and share their talents. It’s a fantastic opportunity for all students to showcase their talent and the excellent vocal training Carmel gives each of her students. Cannot wait for the next one!”

“Since beginning tuition at The Singing Room, I have gained so much confidence and have been able to sing notes I didn’t know I could reach!
Carmel demonstrates a personalised, individual approach. She can intuitively pinpoint areas in my voice that need attention and provides practical, effective strategies to bring out the best in my voice.
Her continual encouragement and ongoing support has been invaluable to me!”
JOEY TESORIERO (Teacher)
“The singing tuition I received from Carmel Mesiti was fantastic on both a musical and personal level. Not only a great teacher, but a great friend who incorporated exercises and songs specific to the style of my voice, learnt so much from her and gained so many skills such as songwriting help and improvisation.”

“Carmel makes singing lessons easy, fun and personalised whilst teaching you how to use your voice properly. She helps you to improve on anything you’re not happy with and helps you to gain confidence.”
“I started doing weekly lessons with Carmel when I was 14. I grew a lot as a singer working with her for 3 years, she helped me develop and hone my technique. Carmel provided me with a safe place to feel and express myself in song. I can’t thank her enough.”
“Carmel has been an inspirational performer and teacher to my daughter for over ten years. Carmel resonates her passion, skill and talent to all her students. Her enthusiasm and appetite for music is highly contagious. Carmel’s professional approach and wealth of Industry knowledge is second to none. My daughter has been successfully challenged in her range and repertoire and we look forward to continue to see her develop and grow as a performer even further.”
Mother of Brooke)
“Carmel was my very first singing teacher when I was young (from 11 years-15 years) and entering the field of performing arts. She has an excellent way of making every student feel at home and comfortable without any judgment. Even though I was shy at times she always found a way to make you laugh and learn to be confident in yourself. She is kind hearted and that’s what I loved about her classes!”
“I attended private singing lessons with Carmel for several years. I came with a passion for singing which was only enhanced by Carmel’s support and knowledge of the music industry. During my time with her she taught me not only about technique but also the art of stage performance. Carmel has an extensive playlist of songs in a range of styles, enabling me to select music in the genre I wished to specialise in. Carmel is a wonderful mentor who goes out of her way to ensure the best results for her students.”
“Since Bridget started singing lessons, we’ve not only noticed her singing improve but the boost of confidence it has given her, worth everything.”
