- Do you have a personal message for students?
Most students when they arrive for their consultation lesson are understandibly very nervous, but I will always make a new student less nervous and more confident. As my teacher at The Royal College of music never taught the male voice as she said she couldn't unerstand it as much as the female voice. After many years of teaching the male and female voice, I feel the same as my singing teacher. Sopranos, Mezzo-Sopranos, and musical theatre singers.
