I've been learning to sing with Hannah since April 2017. Initially I just wanted to improve my breathing technique, I never thought I'd be able make a sound that was anywhere near pleasant. I was so self-conscious at first that I found it difficult to let go and sing in full voice in the lessons. Hannah made the lessons so enjoyable and was so encouraging that I persisted. She improved my voice and built my confidence so much, I was even able to sing in front of all my guests at my wedding! I can't recommend her highly enough.
Hannah is such a good teacher I learned so much in English with her
I have worked with Hannah for over a year, and she is the best voice teacher I could have hoped for. She has endless patience with slow learners like me, is super-encouraging all the time, and is happy to go the extra several miles to help me make progress (which I have done eventually)! Unconditionally recommended.
Hannah has been teaching my two children singing for a year. She is a lovely, encouraging tutor, and they have really flourished with her. She is extremely professional, committed and reliable and I recommend her wholeheartedly.
Hannah is a great personal teacher; she understands my needs and her English lessons are always relevant and interesting. Fast improvement for sure!
My kids are not fans of having English lessons, but with Hannah, it's a pleasure for them. The lessons are interesting or funny or both depending on what she has planned for them.
My daughter really enjoys her singing lessons with Hannah; she has really helped her to grow in confidence and improve her skills. Hannah ensures that they use material that my daughter has chosen or will enjoy and is consistently patient and positive whilst giving her lots of advice on how to improve.
I love the clever and fun format of our English lessons. It is amazing that with her help, such change is possible! I can't say enough about how good her support is in softening my Eastern European accent.
After a few lessons, I have noticed a significant improvement in my pronunciation and writing. Hannah has provided me with simple and effective tools to practise both of them. Aside from being an inspiring person to have a chat with, Hannah is a competent and skilled teacher. She also knows how to encourage her students to put more effort into learning English.
Hannah is a special English teacher. I really like our lessons and I enjoy talking with her.
