Emily, Singing Student

Joanna worked on lots of repertoire, technique, language and general performance skills with me. I was fortunate to secure a place on the Undergraduate Degree Course at the Guildhall School of Music and Drama, which I know wouldn’t have been possible without the support and teaching of Jo & I am extremely thankful
