Miles Harris has been involved in music since a young age. He began playing professionally in his mid-teens and continued to do that while developing his composing (staff writer for Albert's music) and arranging skills. His arrangements have been used by many artists and bands across Australia. His first instrument was trumpet (Daly-Wilson Big Band) then guitars and added vocals. At this time he started some serious research into techniques for singing. He is a keen analytical coach and enjoys helping singers realise their full potential. For the greater part of his career he worked with singers, in his recording studio, developing their songs for recording and preparing them for live performance. He received a Mo Award as well as an Ace Award for his contribution to the music industry as a sound engineer. His wealth of experience in live performance and arranging music in many styles makes him well equipped to assist singers, whatever their chosen genre.

“I met with Marion Rouvas in 2013 after experiencing vocal loss and damage. Voiceology saved my voice and my career! I cannot thank Marion enough. Through practicing the ‘10 Essential Lessons for Easy Singing’ my voice now has a foundation that I can rely on where it has longevity! It does not tire, I have an extended vocal range, my breathing has improved and I feel as though my voice is limitless – I can sing now with ease compared to the many years of belting and strain.”
Natalie Kules, Sydney Area
Singing since I found my voice at 10 years of age copying Michael Jackson. Then started song-writing at 18 and gigging around Sydney in a covers band. After having lessons with Marion for almost 2 years she recommended me as a singing teacher and I started teaching. I did that for a couple of years and then went on to have a family and life took over. Now after 10 years, I'm back in touch with Marion and Voiceology and ready to bring music back into my life.
