Recommendations

"Jo has been my singing teacher and voice coach for two years. She has coached me in the studio on every single track on my demo and thanks to her I also got in to Vocal Tech Music College this year! Through her amazing exercises and support she has given me confidence in performing, and a stronger, more versatile voice. She always tries out new ways of improving my voice so the lessons never get boring. She pushes me in a gentle way and she constantly keeps me on my toes. I now feel well prepared for my music studies and a successful career! Whatever level you are at with your singing I can thoroughly recommend her as a teacher/singing coach."
