Michael Nolan is a finalist in the Young Business Person of the Year category.
He is the owner and director of the Michael Nolan Vocal Studio at Hillsborough.
The Michael Nolan Vocal Studio is a vocal/singing studio that prides itself of the quality of signers it produces.
Success is measured not only on the performances students give, the awards they receive, the opportunities presented to them, or how loud the applause, but on the confidence built and the fun had along the way.
"If my students aren't learning, laughing and having fun, I'm simply not doing my job properly,” said Michael, who has many years of vocal teaching experience privately, in high schools, primary schools and children’s theatre organisations.
With students ranging from 8 to 48, Michael’s teaching methods are modern and pliable, making lessons fun for anyone who wants to learn.
Respected throughout the region, Michael was awarded a Community Service Award from the NSW Premier in 2016 for outstanding efforts in music education, nominated for a City of Newcastle Drama Award and has Musically Directed/Vocally Directed or Directed over 11 productions.
