Parke has been involved in the music industry for over 20 years writing, recording, touring and performing. He began singing from a very early age and at the age of 16, started singing in cover bands around Melbourne. A few years on, he began writing original songs and later toured nationally, gaining valuable experience about what it's like to tour and what it's like to work with managers and agents within the industry.
Parke's full time dedication to the voice and continuous study and collaborations with some of the most recongnised teachers in the world, have enabled him to become an extremely effective teacher and singer.
His clients include signed artists, television stars, musical theatre performers, amateur singers and singers who simply enjoy the process of singing as a hobby and want to have fun!
Parke has trained singers that have gone on to secure record deals, roles in major musical productions and television shows.
"When I was searching for a technique to learn I was already a professional recording artist. I was quite happy with the sound of my voice. The main problem I had was I would get so tired and fatigued after each show. At the time I didn't realise how much over-muscle usage I was using, I thought it was normal as I didn't have anything to compare with, until I began the journey of researching vocal pedagogies based on 17th and 18th Century principles of singing. After training in these methods, it became aware to me through specific vocal exercises, that I was able to use my voice in a way I never thought possible. My voice took on a whole new level that I never expected I could reach."
Parke has a unique ability to quickly identify and correct vocal problems. The exercises work quickly and are very effective. It's rare not to notice improvements after your very first lesson!
