Emma is not only a truly gifted musician and performer she is also a natural teacher. Her teaching style is confident, engaging and openly honest, and has enabled me to gain renewed joy and confidence in my singing. Lessons are focused and well planned and delivered with an infectious, lively enthusiasm that allows for lots of fun whilst still achieving set goals. In addition she is highly professional, incredibly well organised and offering great value for money. I highly recommend her!
I started lessons with Emma in 2016 and in that time she has helped me gain a deep understanding of the foundations of singing & helped me develop my voice beyond what I ever thought was possible. Each lesson she challenges me to be the best singer I can be through extensive exercises & working together step by step through songs. I can not recommend Emma highly enough - she will never give up on you, will support you no matter what your goals are & will bring out a voice you never knew you had!
Emma has worked hard, and with endless patience, to turn my loud singing voice into a trained one. She is always cheerful and positive, encouraging me by highlighting each little improvement, especially when my voice is not behaving as it should. Gradually, with exercises tailored to improve my range and breath control, she is rectifying years of bad habits. There is still a long way to go, but with Emma's guidance I have made measurable progress and am confident that I will continue to do so.
