« My eldest daughter is 12 and started singing lessons with Rachel at the age of 9. She has developed, immensely in her confidence and in her ability and has already decided that singing will be her future. And so much of this is down to not simply Rachel's amazing talent and experience of singing herself, but down to her warm and encouraging nature, her patience and her desire to get the best out of each individual. »

Since I started singing with Rachel I feel like I've improved a lot and now I feel more confident with my performances. I've also learnt a lot about how to use my voice properly. Rachel has also helped me with assessments for college, auditions and worked through other performances with me. Plus I really enjoy the lessons!
