A note on participation: Enhancing singing skills requires practical and active participation. As this is an interactive, group class all students will be required to have their videos turned on.

Participants' feedback:
'It was great! Just enough people to practice with and to have time for individual teachning moments'
'I learned a lot. Mainly breathing control, vowel shaping and exercises to make my voice stronger. The lessons also gave me a confident boost!'

"When people ask me what style of music I teach, I say, 'Anything that is sung with passione'."
