“I love teaching at theatretrain because I get so much joy out of seeing the students achieve great things and perform their hearts out!”
“Teaching at Theatretrain is not just about the mechanics of the voice but training young performers to act through song, explore a wide field of repertoire and to the finished results in terms of the fully staged show. It’s great to see them develop and have the confidence to solos as well as being valued members of a vocal ensemble”
“I enjoy teaching at Theatretrain as I love the opportunity to pass on my knowledge and training in dance to the aspiring young performers”
