Current student: Rebecca Moore Age: 25
Rebecca approached me for singing lessons after she watched a live performance showcase for external engagements at The Royal Welsh College of Music and Drama, Cardiff. With no previous singing experience, Rebecca and I started working on songs she suggested. When Rebecca had developed an enthusiam and confidence for singing, we began working on new repertoire, including Jazz standards and hards pop songs. In each session I began taking her out of her vocal comfort zone developing her range, harmonising and phrasing skills. A year later I used Rebecca as one of my backing singers for a cooperate function.
