What people say

 I originally wanted to have lessons purely for the joy of learning a skill. I'm delighted to find myself in Helen's very capable hands. She clearly knows what she's talking about and is a true professional. She quickly puts me at ease, gives me confidence, and helps me understand both my range and which songs suit my voice. I'm motivated and energised afterwards. 
Michael Nealon, bass chorister
 Learning to sing with Helen has been one of the best things I’ve ever done. She has a real talent for making the learning process great fun and I always end the session feeling energised and uplifted. 
Dr Gillian Tomlinson, MBChB, BSc, MRCP(UK)
 Helen is patient, supportive, encouraging and utterly professional. I gave myself 10 lessons and am still having them after 20 years. There can't a better accolade for a teacher than that. 
Jill, Dr of Philosophy, B.Sc, PhD, AKC, MS Biol, C Biol.
Singing makes me feel happier and healthier. I feel very positive after each session.
