I have a diploma ! Thank you so much for all your help! Brilliant! I've been offered a Choral Scholarship for the La Fontanelle choral summer course that I applied for. They had already given away their two allocated soprano scholarships but have given me an extra one as an exception!

Thank you so much for the Vocal Workshop that you gave us on Wednesday. Everyone to whom I spoke was unanimous in saying how helpful it had been and how much they had enjoyed it and I have had a number of extremely complimentary emails about it from members since.
