- Do you have a personal message for students?

I am absolutely passionate about singing and in my many years of singing teaching I have seen real transformation through the power of the singing voice.
I teach a very strong vocal technique working holistically, taking the whole person in account and believe and hope my 25 years experience as a singer, singing coach and music director enables me to truly empathise and understand the particular pressures of the singer both beginners singing for fun or the sheer therapy of singing to the demands of the professional singer and work with each individual and unique person to bring about real and lasting change. And it's fun...I have been told by my students that they might come feeling low or tired and go out feeling bright and uplifted!
