Hi my name is Ellie Boulton and I’m 16 years old!

I’ve had singing tuition from Veronica since January this year so considering we had 5 months off due to the current climate I’ve only been singing for about 4 months and I can safely say I’ve improved so much! Not only vocally, but also confidence wise.

Veronica doesn’t teach you to sing, she teaches you to become a singer and a performer. One of the things that I love about Veronica is that she’s totally honest and that’s something that I wanted in a teacher and she would always tell me if I sound off but will then explain to me exactly what I need to do to improve. I’m actually auditioning for performing arts at college in a few days and thats a position I wouldn’t be in physically or mentally without Veronica. She helped me to believe in myself when I didn’t believe in myself.

Thank you Veronica for making my big theatre dreams more of a reality and putting all the time and effort in that you have for me. You have no idea how much I appreciate it and appreciate you for showing me the way to my real voice.

I can’t thank you enough

Veronica is an excellent teacher, with a wealth of experience and talent. She is able to assess which areas I need to improve on and explains what I need to do in a clear and memorable way. She is very encouraging and my singing has greatly improved with her tuition, thank you so much!

Hi Veronica, Just a few words of my learning experiences with you and my singing ability. when I attended a singing course at Swindon college my singing ability was poor, but with your encouragement and drive I have become a much more accomplished vocalist in the sphere of operatic singing. I recommend you as a very good teacher of operatic voice and such techniques would be useful in other areas of singing were it the singers choice. Best wishes Clive

Hi veronica

Just some feed back

This why I come back for more each week

You listen carefully to what im doing

So i can refine the way i sing

You make alowances for my dislexa

All try and boost my confidance as some wat put off by reading music

I have still to over come my fear of manages and not remembering the words

Any one else would give up with me as a lost cause

Thank you

Best regards nicholas
