Lorna is an excellent teacher. Her warm, understanding and reassuring approach has given me a safe environment to explore and develop myself as an artist.

In the year or so that I've been seeing Lorna I went from being somebody with no training or confidence, only a desire to act and a feeling that I might be able to, to being accepted at RADA. I'm quite sure that I would never have done this had I not found her. Lorna is a natural teacher in that she knows when to push you to the very limits of what you're capable of (and she will!) and when to support you.

What I love most about Lorna's lessons is the fact that whilst she is a consummate professional and expert on the physical and technical aspects of singing, she also deals with the singer as a whole the spiritual, mental and the emotional being. Lorna's lessons gave me deeper insight into myself and pushed me physically and emotionally beyond anywhere I'd been before! Thank you so much Lorna

Lorna is the most inspiring, encouraging and talented teacher I have ever had. I found that Lorna really took the time to understand me as both a person and as an actress. Not only has she encouraged my strengths, she has also challenged me in my weaknesses, finding keys to unlock any creative blocks I have in my work. Since having lessons with Lorna, I feel much more confident in my abilities.I will continue having lessons with her for many years to come!!
