芦 Gill was a brilliant teacher who became a friend. Gill was always prepared, enthusiastic and enjoyed lessons as much as Ruby and I did! I would, (and have), recommend her to parents/children who were thinking of having singing/music lessons. Gill is a lovely person who brings singing lessons with extra fun and understanding. 禄

I took singing lessons with Gill for over a year and I can say that it was one of the best things I did.
As I am in a band, Gill helped me to develop methods, which meant I could sing to a high standard, for sustained periods of time.
Gill is friendly, helpful, knowledgeable and without her help I would not have improved at all.
I enjoyed all my time with Gill and couldn't recommend anyone better to teach you singing.
