Carmen is an amazing mentor and vocal coach. Her holistic practice prioritises laying down a personalised route to success for her pupils. Words can't begin to describe how transformative Carmen has been to my artistic development and building my vocal confidence. I highly recommend Carmen, especially for young artists attempting to ground themselves in their craftsmanship.

Life-changing vocal coaching with Carmen - about 6 months in, and I am feeling closer to the voice I've always wanted than ever before! I look forward to my lesson every week. It isn't just fun and informative, it is energising, inspiring and life-affirming. If singing means the world to you, you will find the perfect nurture for it here. If you're curious to give it a go, Carmen will get the best sounds out of you you've ever made! Carmen is a wise and professional teacher, as well as being playful, upbeat and incredibly encouraging. My band noticed the change in my voice - sounding clearer and more confident. Carmen is invested in her students to get them where they want to be, and the possibilities feel endless to me now. Plus she has an amazing voice :-D I recommend her to anyone looking for a teacher now.

Carmen is an incredible vocal coach. Not only has she helped me improve my singing voice, she has also helped me be more confident in every area of my life. I highly recommend that you book a session with her!
Carmen's skills and experience as an extraordinary vocal coach and guide go far beyond simply teaching you how to maximize your voice. Not only has Carmen taught me the technical knowledge and skills, but she has helped to improve my confidence and self-belief. Carmen has the skill of saying the right things at the right time that has helped to shift my narrative around what I believe is possible as a singer and speaker. She has helped me to shift some really unhelpful beliefs and vocal / emotional blocks that I didn't even realise existed and - as a result - I have so much more confidence in my vocal ability. It is the most vulnerable thing getting up in front of someone to sing, but Carmen makes you feel so at ease and I cannot thank her enough for all she has done to support me (including adapting to lessons on zoom when I was unable to get to her house for the lesson). Thanks Carmen, meeting you has been an absolute blessing. Rebecca x

Hi Carmen, Thanks so much for yesterday, our choir members loved the session. Here are some of the comments I've received:- It was brilliant! Thank you very much for organising it! 😊 It was very helpful Andy. I am expecting a different sound on Thursday 🤣 Hi Andy. It was great fun and very interesting, a very good introduction to voice training. Carmen is a great coach and a very nice lady. Many thanks to you for organising🤠 Great evening thank you x Great. Thanks Andy. It would be nice to do another one, building on that to making sound. Thanks Andy and, of course, Carmen for a really useful and fun evening. Off to practise some trilling now! Thanks for organising Andy! It was a great event. Looking forward to attending the next one! So a very successful night! Thanks Carmen. Will definitely be in touch to do another session at some point. Andy

I am SO glad I found Carmen!! From my first session, I left knowing that I had absolutely made the right decision in choosing to work with her. With training and experience in so many voice styles, Carmen brings elements from all different techniques into our practise and really listens to what your goals are for your voice. Most importantly, she CARES. Her holistic approach and beautiful personality creates a positive, encouraging and empowering atmosphere that makes you believe in yourself and your vocal ability/potential! I'm excited to continue working together and will definitely be booking another block of session after these. Thank you, Carmen!

Carmen is an absolute gem and I highly recommend her! As a singing novice I was looking specifically for a teacher to help me build confidence as I was exceptionally nervous, and I couldn't have chosen a better person for the job. She's very knowledgeable, an excellent teacher, and oozes positivity and good vibes. I booked a series of 8 lessons and hope to come back for more. Thank you Carmen! 😊

Carmen is brilliant!, I came to her after years of 'winging it', and we have been working from the ground up on correct vocal training for a healthy voice. In the short 8 weeks nearly, I have already found that there are tones and keys that I previously didn't even know were reachable, and this being only so soon! Carmen is great at keeping me motivated, and is understanding and patient. If you are thinking of taking your voice seriously, you need to check her out!

“Carmen is a consummate professional. She puts 100% excellence into whatever she puts her hands to creatively, and coaching me vocally was no exception. She recognises that the voice is not a separate entity but rather it is intimately connected with our body and emotions and she gave me an awareness of that connectedness I didn’t initially have. She helped me get centred and peaceful before we began the lesson and I thoroughly enjoyed singing scales in different character voices! Carmen knows how to stretch you vocally without injuring you and because of that I’ll be popping in for another lesson to build my vocal stamina.”

“Carmen is an excellent singing coach. Carmen takes a holistic approach to voice development, which includes meditational breathing to prepare the body to be used as a vocal instrument. She goes on to employ a wide range of techniques from Indian, Classical and Contemporary singing to ensure a well-rounded development of the voice. Would recommend and use again.”

“I started studying with Carmen just before Christmas and I cannot explain how much my voice has developed and improved. I feel now I have the confidence to perform and the ability to control my voice (still a work in progress though) and I would recommend her to anyone. Lately my friends have been telling me they are very impressed by how much I improved in just a few months and I am very excited to see where my voice will take me in the future. She has also helped with my confidence and she is always going the extra mile to make sure I am not wasting my time and money and I am achieving my goals. I love Carmen.”
