PATRICK – Senior Coach
“Patrick is great! In just a few lessons, he helped me unlock my voice and rediscover my love for singing. I had been practising bad habits for years which Patrick picked up on straight away (over Zoom too!) and helped me find a voice I never knew I had. Not only that, his lessons are really fun. His tuition is clear and also really visual which helps keep things relaxed. I could not recommend him highly enough” — Shae, Actor, London
