ANDY SMITH – Recording Artist/Singer/Songwriter

Hannah is incredible. She doesn’t just deal with the technical discipline of singing, (which she does brilliantly) she deals with the whole person. Through the sessions I’ve had with her I have grown in ability and self awareness when it comes to singing, but I’ve also grown in confidence as a singer and learned to place a much higher value on self care. Lessons are always challenging and fun. Hannah is hugely personable and genuinely cares about her students. So good! LILY JO Recording Artist/Singer/Songwriter
‘Hannah helped me to prepare for my UK tour, and I was able to deliver vocals night after night using her exercises and techniques daily. I highly recommend.

 

RUTH HOPKINS – International Professional Dancer

I’ve just finished recording my vocal showreel with Hannah and would highly recommend. I was apprehensive at first as I have never done any recording previously but Hannah knew exactly what to say and how to coach me towards the best sound. Her extensive experience with recording showed and she was able to capture the different clips that I needed very efficiently. I love my vocal lessons with Hannah and to be able to record as well in a relaxed and familiar environment was just what I needed.

 

MARY-KATE MATTHEWS – Vocalist, LZ7
Hannah is an excellent coach who continues to strive for more knowledge on how to best help her clients. As a full-time musician, my vocal is often stretched on a daily basis. Hannah has equipped me with tools to sustain my voice throughout touring as well as always being available for advice & assessment when I need rehabilitation or recovery. If you want a vocal that performs exactly how it was designed to with your own unique sound, then Hannah is the vocal coach for you! I am incredibly grateful that I found Hannah.
