Bonnie 

Jazz Vocals Course 2019, Edinburgh

"Elena is a brilliant teacher - kind, patient and thoughtful, and really pays attention to your voice and the things you need to work on. She gives excellent homework, too - my voice has developed so much in just five sessions! Plus I actually understand what I'm doing now, and what pitfalls I need to watch out for. Can't recommend enough."

Kim

Jazz Vocals Workshop 2015, London 

"I've attended two lessons and am very impressed by the teacher! She has a fantastic voice and although I am not a jazz fan particularly, I am enjoying trying to sing in a jazz style."

Susan

Jazz Stylistics Workshop 2018, Edinburgh

"In what was a relatively short time, I felt I learned a great deal from Elena and developed my confidence enormously. She is an excellent, patient teacher who deconstructs many elements of singing techniques in a very practical and useful way. It was a most enjoyable session."

Kenny

Jazz Workshop Student 2014, London

"Elena is amazing at what she does, the way she breaks down the techniques makes it easy for the learners to understand and she always keeps the lessons fresh and interesting. Plus she actually has a passion for helping people which makes the lesson so much better because you have a teacher who cares."

"Elena's singing classes have really helped build my confidence as a singer. They are well structured, enjoyable and full of useful tips and excercises. Each class looks at a different aspect of singing technique, and is followed up with a summary of the lesson and ideas for further practice. Highly recommended!"

Lisanne

Jazz DramVocals 2020, The Hague

It was a very inspiring and interesting workshop, doing first singing and drama separate from each other and combining them together at the end of the workshop. Elena is a well trained singer and teacher full of passion about vocal technique, performance and how to sing jazz. She can bring that enthusiasm very well to the pupils

Kelly

Private Student, 2019, Edinburgh

Had a great lesson with Elena, the lesson had a good format and she explained everything really thoroughly. My singing voice already sounds better!

Laura

Jazz DramVocals 2020, The Hague

"At first I was a bit hesitant about joining the workshop, mainly because of the drama part. But since it is an essential part of preforming on stage, it's very useful. Sometimes you just have to take a leap. And shaping up on vocal technics is always welcome so it was a well spent afternoon. Elena is such a friendly and positive person she makes it real easy to let go of all those inhibitions"veritatis."

Shaun

Private Student, 2018, Edinburgh

Elena is fantastic. Went into the lesson feeling very nervous and unsure if I could sing at all, but Elena changed that for me instantly. She immediately made me feel very comfortable and made me see immediate results as well. Would highly recommend taking lessons with her, as she is lovely and you will hear results almost instantly."
