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.
