Nicole LeGault, the creator of the Song Savvy Vocal Instruction Program, was born into a house that was always full of music. "My mother was always singing to the radio. My father, after reading us bed time stories, sang at least three songs with my sister and I before bed. We would sing Rudolph the Red Nosed Reindeer all year 'round because it was our favourite."
Formal musical training began for Nicole at the age of five, and by eleven, she knew what she wanted to be - a professional musician.
"The fundamentals of singing are universal, but when it comes to fine tuning and developing a personal style, every student is unique. I'm powerfully driven to see my students evolve. I've learned through many years of daily experience how to provide my students with the tools and the knowledge they crave in order to free their gift of voice."
Vocal Instruction Program
In 1998, Nicole founded the successful "A Sharp" School of Music in West Toronto, Canada
"The school has about 400 students. I teach about 45 per week. I get calls from men and women alike - and I can tell that it took great courage for them to just make the initial phone call. They say things like: "Umm...are you willing to try to teach anyone to sing?" and "Is there any hope for me, or do you think it's too late?" They all think that they will be the worst student I have ever heard, but nothing could be further from the truth. I love beginners, because I know that their lessons will be all steady and exciting progress. Their child-like joy when they realize that they really can sing gives me a fulfilment that money cannot buy."
While most of Nicole's students are interested in singing simply for the joy of learning a new skill, many have gone on to pursue professional careers in:
- Live Performance and Recording, (some are signed by various record labels)
- Musical Theatre
- Stand Up Comedy
- News Casting
And those who improved their speaking voice for their careers as:
- Executives who give Presentations

Voice Lessons Practice Tip of the Week June 29, 2020
While you were practicing the hard parts of your music, you may have become tense or frustrated, or forgotten to sing or play musically or with good tone quality or technique. End your practice time by playing or singing something you like that is easy for you. Relax and "perform" it for yourself, playing with your very best technique and musicianship. During this part of your practices, develop a "repertoire" of music that you feel very comfortable and confident playing or singing. Then you'll always have something ready if people ask for a performance.
