Wendy Rolls enjoys working with singers of all ages as teacher, conductor and performer. She currently divides her time teaching singing between Brisbane Girls Grammar School, All Hallows’ School and her private studio, as well as conducting an auditioned chamber choir for middle school girls. With extensive choral and classroom music experience, Wendy’s interest in adolescent girls’ singing was sparked while completing a Master of Music Studies in vocal pedagogy from the Queensland Conservatorium Griffith University. This became her PhD research, exploring the pedagogical needs of adolescent female singers undergoing voice change.
She also holds a Bachelor of Veterinary Science (UQ), Bachelor of Education (QUT), and an Australian Kodály Certificate. She has presented for ANATS, ANCA and Kodály Australia.
