What students say about this course
I have had several music tutors in the past and I feel that Becky is one of the most experienced and talented teachers I have ever encountered. Attending her classes was an absolute joy and I would love to join her classes again in the future
Rebecca was great at catering to a class of people with different backgrounds, and managed to help the entire cohort progress. Very impressive indeed.
An excellent teacher with great communication skills and excellent knowledge of her area. Also a good sense of humour. All of this makes for an enjoyable and supportive learning experience.
I would definitely recommend this course to others. From the start the teacher made sure there is a nice and safe environment in which we feel comfortable to sing freely. It has given me the opportunity to sing with other people and the course has improved my theory as well as my vocal ability.
