"I just wanted to thank you for all your help... your hard work has helped me to improve both my technique and confidence and without you I wouldn't have gained my place at SLP."

"Before having singing lessons with Elaine I would never have sung in front of anyone. But with her help, expertise, enthusiasm and support I improved my singing voice ... and managed to perform in front of an audience on several different occasions."

"I was absolutely terrified of singing in front of someone but Elaine put me at ease and helped build my confidence. She took things at my pace helping me develop my voice through different exercises, she would give advice throughout and support me all the way."
