Welcome to the Brian Gilbertson Website

Thanks for dropping by.

This free singing tips site has been visited by singers and singing teachers from over 180 countries changing the lives of many singers and teachers. Brian has also answered well over 5000 personal emails received through the site. Current singing tips are based on these email discussions.

These singing tips were first created in 2000 so that Brian Gilbertson could post singing tips for the many voice students who attended his Vocal Masterclasses in Europe, South Africa and Asia during his “Reaching the World” concert tour as an Arts Ambassador for the 2000 Sydney Olympic Games. To access these weekly tips for free, simply become a member along with the hundreds of singers who have already registered. To secure Brian’s original tips you can purchase series 1, 2 and/or 3 singing tips - just select what you'd like from Brian's product list at right.

Brian Gilbertson is a consummate performer whose distinctive voice has reached millions around the world through opera, cabaret, concerts, television and international sporting events. Brian started out as a child singer on television, became a rock singer in his teenage years, went on to musicals and cabaret, was a lawyer for 7 years then sold his legal practice in Australia to study voice intensively with Maestro Franz Schuch Tovini in Vienna and drama. He became a principal operatic tenor. He has over many years, developed a strong understanding of both how to sing with a free voice across all vocal genres and he has helped many singers reach their greater potential. He has mentored singers and actors and knows the business of singing and performance. More about Brian...
