My daughter, Ruth, started singing lessons with Rebecca 18 months ago she was lacking in confidence and was suffering from severe performance anxiety. In her last performance, prior to lessons with Rebecca, she had suffered her first panic attack and she was ready to give up singing completely. Over the past 18 months Rebecca has worked with Ruth to overcome her performance anxiety and to build her confidence. Additionally, Rebecca has helped Ruth to identify her strengths and weaknesses, and encouraged her to try different musical performance opportunities. Following interviews and an audition, Ruth has recently been accepted on a contemporary music course at the college of her choice; auditioned for a musical theatre course in a grueling 2 day workshop; and is playing the main character in her school production of Hairspray. Ruth is now a much more confident and self assured performer and has developed her singing skills to a high level. I have no doubt that is down to Rebecca’s excellent teaching, and her ability to build confidence in the most anxious of performers.
