- “I was really impressed at your response to each individual singer when they sang their chosen song and how you seemed to identify really quickly what was required to improve that person’s singing… all your comments were spot on and useful. You did it in a very positive way and so your ability to give crits was impressive… Your response each time was very helpful, reassuring and always positive.
I feel I gained a lot from your course, especially the M1 and M2 techniques. I’ve been doing loads of Zoom choirs in lockdown with different people’s warm ups, techniques etc and your course consolidated all of these and more. Thank you!” – Lizzie, course participant.
- “I love the way you teach and feel loaded with riches at the end of each lesson. I’m a bit out of touch with singing and this is such a boost to my confidence and interest, l can’t tell you.” – Judith, course participant.
- “I loved all aspects of the course, I enjoyed learning to connect with my body…I think you have such a warmth and take away my fear and insecurities of performing because you gently point out ways to improve or overcome musical obstacles. Thank you for giving me the opportunity to be part of the training and finally singing on my own in front of the small group.” – Tina, course participant.
