Our Vocal Coaches
Vox Integra is home to a range of like-minded and professional vocal coaches who have been carefully selected for their expertise and talent.
Theresa Goble is a Mezzo-Soprano with 35 years of experience. The co-founder of Vox Integra studied singing at the Guildhall School of Music and Drama and at the National Opera Studio with scholarships from Royal Opera House, Covent Garden and Scottish Opera. Theresa is also an internationally acclaimed voice teacher in high demand and is especially regarded for her holistic approach.
Morag McLaren is a Soprano, also with 35 years of experience. Morag, the co-founder of Vox Integra, has performed in a wide variety of opera, musicals, concerts and musical theatre productions. The nature of her workshops, her breadth of professional performance experience, particularly in physical theatre and devising, and her focus on creativity, has inevitably led Morag to directing.
