« My son really enjoys his LAMDA and drama lessons with Miss Jo. His speech, confidence and projection skills have improved so much since attending the classes. You can always hear him when he is chosen for parts in his school productions, whereas a lot of his classmates cannot be heard which I feel is all due to the skills learned from Miss Jo. »

My son really enjoys his LAMDA and drama lessons with Miss Jo.
His speech, confidence and projection skills have improved so much since attending the classes.
You can always hear him when he is chosen for parts in his school productions, whereas a lot of his classmates cannot be heard which I feel is all due to the skills learned from Miss Jo.

Mr S Cross adult pupil

I attended an intensive course of one to one private public speaking coaching with Jo Anne.
Jo Anne was professional, caring, knowledgable and encouraging at all times.
She helped me with the delivery and content of my speeches, voice work and presentational skills.
I would highly recommend her to you for coaching.
