Learning to sing had long been a dream of mine and I had decided to take lessons as a birthday present to myself. I knew Sue Bond was the right teacher when she listened carefully during my first lesson to my reasons for feeling scared of signing in front of other people. Sue worked with me on building my confidence to sing; through teaching me breathing techniques and building my understanding of the anatomy of the voice. I especially enjoyed the song choices we made together and the feeling of accomplishment when I had learnt the lyrics and really ‘felt’ the song when I sang it. Sue’s relaxed and caring approach to teaching put me at ease and inspired me to practice and commit to learning each week. I now feel confident enough to join a choir and continue my singing journey for the rest of my life. A heartfelt thank you Sue.
