35 Years Experience

I am a Modern Singing Teacher with 35 years experience. I teach students one on one and cover all modern musical styles. With more than 12 years Performance Experience I have worked with various bands covering many different genres. I love to teach and watch my students achieve a full range and tonal control in their favourite types of music and gain enjoyment and confidence.

Fast Track Your Progress

With my wealth of experience I am able to tailor a program to suit your style and goals. We focus on the things that are going to bring results fast as well as long term vocal stability.

Proven Method

Using my method developed over the past 35 years teaching students of varying ability and goals I have successfully transformed hundreds of voices.

Learn Proper Technique

By focusing on correct technique you will develop a strong and powerful voice as well as increasing your range and your musical repertoire to enable you to be a versatile performer.

Follow Your Ambition

You may want to be a professional performer or just want to sing for personal satisfaction... maybe at Karaoke nights, Weddings, Birthdays and other social occasions.

It does not matter what your objectives are as the fundamentals of singing are always the same. My proven method will help you to develop the control and technique necessary to achieve the vocal expression and feeling required for performing modern music.

Teaching all styles including pop, rock, country, blues, alternative, church singing, theatre as well as general voice production.

My lessons are suitable for all styles, ages and skill levels including Professionals.


With my weekly structured lessons you can follow your own pathway to the style of singing you choose.
During our weekly lessons we focus on 2 key areas:


Each week we work on songs you have chosen that you long to sing like your favourite artists. We work at your own pace on the music you are passionate about.

You are free to explore different musical influences and styles.


The weekly exercises, which I call your your “technical ladder” increase your range and your ability to choose different tonal sounds and styles as well as providing a strong foundation that will protect your voice and bring you a long life of singing where you will continue to improve naturally and consistently.


I have studied music from a young age learning classical piano for many years. I attended the Melbourne 'Conservatorium of Music' and my teacher was the renowned concert pianist Ronald Farren Price. I was personally trained to be a Singing Teacher by the late Jack White who is famous for teaching such names as Olivia Newton-John, John Farnham, Peter Allen, The Bee Gees, Helen Reddy and many more. After completing my training I taught at the Jack White Singing School for a number of years and began performing as well to pursue a professional career.

Nowadays my passion is guiding people to find their full vocal potential. I look forward to meeting you and helping you achieve your goals no matter how big or small they are.

I am a student of Jade's and am delighted at the speed at which my voice is improving. I have been to many teachers in the past, but I will look no further, as Jade is everything I was looking for. Her knowledge of singing and her method of teaching is excellent. Not only is Jade an amazing teacher, but she is a beautiful person too. (Mordialloc)

Jade has improved my singing really quickly. I've had singing lessons from quite a number of different teachers but she has been able to quickly diagnose aspects of my singing to make my songs sound instantly better. I have found her extremely thorough and she explains what she wants you to do very clearly. My friends have commented on how much stronger and more confident I sound. I highly recommend Jade to anyone interested in modern singing. (Hawthorne)

I love having Jade as my singing teacher. She has an amazing ability to bring out the best and has extraordinary distinctions in the art of singing. I'm delighted with my rapid improvement and excited to see where this journey ends! (Sandringham)

- Craig Miller

I have been having singing lessons from Jade for more than 3 years and my singing has improved dramatically as has my confidence, health and general well-being. Having regular lessons really helps me keep going when the drudgery of day-to-day live keeps me distracted. I highly recommend anyone who has an interest in sing to find a really good teacher and I can recommend Jade (Maria) Hodson with 100% confidence. (Burwood)

My teenage daughter was asked to sing at a wedding. She had had lessons with highly recognised names in the industry however had not sung for a couple of years, so we thought we would try and get some lessons to freshen her up. After looking on the Internet, also through the Christmas time, found Jade. What a find. My daughter was surprised how much Jade taught her in such a short time. She sang beautifully and it was a big thank you to Jade that made this happen so smoothly. I highly recommend her.
