"It was a highly valuable experience and I came away from the workshop with a range of tools to draw from to increase confidence when I am on stage. I felt that your personal experience in opera meant you were able to deliver the Lecoq techniques with a unique perspective, which I found particularly helpful. Thank you again."
Tamsar Bellette - Singer
"Doing something like we did today unlocks my breath and helps me notice my body connection in a way that most singing teachers haven't been able to for me. The physicality heightens my awareness and enables me to create bigger sounds, find better supported notes and feel more freedom of expression to tap into such as the words I'm saying or the emotion I'm trying to convey."
