Noble House offers personal and professional coaching in a confidential space, created by and for performers/musicians. You can expect a warm welcome, dynamic approach and a holistic, effective upgrade on your performance skills. As Denise and Ali are both professional vocalists, they are up to speed on the differing needs and approaches required in the performance/music industries.

  • "Ali and Denise help you unleash your inner spark. First and foremost they are professional yet your friend. They enable you to take away your barriers as quickly or slowly as you can. You begin to sing with Your Voice and Your Story."

    Contemporary Music Artist
  • "I have been a singer from aged 5 and have always loved music. However after suffering personal problems earlier this year I had lost all interest in my music and was feeling very low. After three sessions with Dr Borland I gained my confidence in both singing and other important aspects of my life. I felt re-energised and much improved and can't thank her enough for the help she gave me. I am now back in control of my life and happily singing again."

    Experienced Singer
  • "My voice disappeared after the April op. Too many meds that dry me out. I have been resuscitating it with tender but tough lessons from Dr Denise Borland. She lives in Scotland and she teaches me via Skype. Sceptics communicated negative comments about learning-at-a-distance - but the strange thing is: it works. Voice returning. Self-confidence returning. Pleasure in singing returning. Denise is as good to look at as well as to learn from."

Voice Intensive

The Voice Intensive is a 5-day non-residential course to really get into understanding your voice and finding ways to help you optimise, integrate, befriend or excel. This bespoke programme is limited to 12 participants so that each individual goal can be worked towards. Whatever your individual want from your voice, that is what we will look at. Based on The Singer’s Psyche research undertaken, we know having a holistic toolbox of vocal and psychological techniques and theories is the way to find, maintain and sustain a healthy, authentic voice. The Voice Intensive is the practical rolling out of this cutting edge, voice and performance psychology based pedagogy.

Who Can Benefit?

This course is for anyone who uses their voice i.e. everyone! This can however, be of particular use to professional vocalists, teachers and lecturers, public speakers and vocal rehabilitation coaches.

As the Voice Intensive is designed for the participants’ individual needs, we can cater for all voice and performance related concerns, including performance anxiety, creative blocks, recurring voiceloss and/or excessive tension and physical stress.

As this is a small confidential group, all levels are welcome and catered for.

How Does It Work?

This 5-day intensive allows space for each participant to outline what they need and for goals to be made. Each day consists of vocal technique, breath and bodywork sessions, group and individual vocal performance coaching and psychological education – all shaped by the particular needs of the group. Throughout this course each participant is invited to collect the specific tools and techniques that have been beneficial to form their own toolbox.

Some of our specialist areas include embodied performance, authentic vocal development, vocal techniques (spanning various genres), microphone technique and recording studio skills (in our onsite bespoke recording studio). For the fearful and the fearless alike!
