“Hi Jonny – my performance for Bolton FM at the Bolton Food & Drinks Festival had some great responses and I loved every second of it. If I hadn’t started singing lessons with you that experience wouldn’t have been possible, so thanks so much for helping me develop my musicianship!”
“Just wanted to let you know that we had an amazing wedding and we’ve recently just got back from our honeymoon in France where we could do some much needed relaxing after the crazy manic few months leading up to the big day!
My performance went really well. It was probably not the best I’ve ever sung it, it seemed a bit strange singing with a mic however I felt surprisingly confident and composed (a couple of drinks obviously helped with that) and it went down a storm with everyone cheering and loving it. A massive thanks to you for all the help you’ve given me. There is absolutely no way I would have had the confidence to get up on stage without the lessons and even when I’m playing at home or on holiday, I now get much more enjoyment out of playing.
I’d certainly like some more lessons in the future, however, for now, I’ve got a few really big projects on with work and I really need to concentrate them to push my business forward.
Once again, massive thanks”
