I've had the pleasure of working with Gemma some time, collaborating on workshop projects and supporting singers of all ages to develop their technique and understand how to respond to the challenges of professional vocal work. I would not hesitate to recommend Gemma as an expert in the field and also a wonderful person to work with. More...

I had the most amazing session with Gemma yesterday, she’s so kind and listened to exactly what I wanted to get out of my sessions, I listened to the recording of the session when I got home and I was amazed at how different techniques she showed me helped me get the best out of my voice. Can’t wait for my next session

For years, I hesitated to take singing classes because I was expecting disappointment. A friend of mine recommended Gemma and I am so grateful she did! What I love about the sessions with Gemma is that there is no sense of pressure. I can be completely myself, have fun with the exercises rather than taking it all too seriously. And the results are insane! I have had four sessions with Gemma so far and in three of them I was completely thrown by the change in my voice within the hour that we had! And the fourth session turned out to be finding out which skills I need to regularly repeat to support my voice in the long term. Gemma is great at explaining in simple terms the complicated mechanisms behind the voice as well as being an approachable and sensitive teacher. 10 out of 10 for me! More...

I was struggling with some upper range consistency and vocal fatigue singing in a rock band. I felt totally at ease in Gemmas sessions and have begun complete vocal re-education. Singing better than ever and feeling stronger & healthier as a result of Gemmas guidance. Thanks! More...

I have sang for over 20 years and just recently I've been having a few problems with my voice not performing as it should with a strange distortion happening in the middle of my range making it difficult to sing any songs properly and making talking a draining experience. It's been causing me a lot of anxiety and worry that it wouldn't right itself again. I went to see Gemma after getting the all clear medically but being left with no answers. It was very hard to find someone with the skills I was looking for so I was so happy to find Gemma's website. From the first session she tuned into the problem straight away and I came out of the sesison with my voice feeling a lot less tight and some exercises to do before I spoke each day and then again at the end of the day. These have really helped to free my voice up and it is performing better than it has for quite a while. She really knew what she was talking about and I felt I was in good hands. I learnt a lot very quickly and it made me think about my voice in a different way. I wasn't after a singing teacher - I was after a vocal coach and that's exactly what I got. She has been so supportive out of the sessions too checking in on me. I'm now looking forward to going back and making my voice better than ever now the problem is subsiding. Thank you so much :) xx More...

Great session today with Gemma focusing on one song that I’m going to record the vocals for soon. I felt like I needed to unlock some warmth in my lower range and asked Gemma to help me do that. She nailed it. I always come away from a session with Gemma with more knowledge about my voice and I also manage to process some emotions that I’ve got going on surrounding my voice too. Not to mention the feeling great and singing all the way home bit! Thank you! More...

I am so pleased I went to see Gemma. Within the session, I heard an improvement in the sound and range of my voice. I found it easier to sing the higher notes so I'll definitely be doing the exercises she's shown me. Thank you

I had time for just one session 2 days prior to a gig I was doing (and was worried about) a few weeks back. I had considered cancelling as I couldn't see how in an hour Jemma could influence a vocal performance at such short notice and with little time to put things into practice! But she really really did! Highly recommended and I will be returning soon.. More...

So why 5 stars?
If you ever wanted to know if there are real vocal coaches out there that will show you how to improve your vocals long term from lesson one. ......and not just listen to you sing and praise you for a karaoke of your favourite song, you have found the right person to come to.......excellent skills that will be used for the rest of your singing careers. With a generous personality who will make you feel welcome, relaxed and worthy you will not go far wrong with Gemma.....would highly recommend. More...

I started vocal lessons with Gemma about a year and a half ago, coming in as a complete beginner. Since then I've seen great improvements in my voice and I'm seeing continual progress week by week. Gemma's knowledge and understanding helps me to push beyond my comfort zone, and her ability to decipher the causes of problems, such as tension in my voice, enables me to make simple changes that are very effective. She is really supportive and encoraging, and I'm so grateful for her approach to teaching. More...

Even at my first lesson I noticed such an improvement in my voice. I take away so much from each lesson that I can work with and practice on my own. Gemma tailors the lessons to suit the individual which is great and each lesson is fun and different from the last. Singing in front of others can be nerve wracking but I feel very much at ease with Gemma and look forward to going every week. More...

I had 8 lessons with Gemma and was blown away by both the improvement she brought to my voice and the amount of knowledge she brought to each lesson.
I have had vocal lessons in the past but Gemma's was by far the best - she provides tried and tested techniques and excercises that are incredibly powerful. Highly recommended and I'm sure I'll be back! Thank you Gemma.

I have been having regular singing lessons with Gemma in Hertford for over a year now and my confidence has grown immensely in singing. I'm trying out new styles and enjoying using a Microphone more and more. Gemma has some great techniques to get you to hit that note you thought you couldn't sing. I like the way Gemma uses some Psychology and positive thinking to make your mind believe you can do it! I highly recommend her. Get booking!! More...

My daughter took singing lessons with Gemma and was very nervous but instantly put at ease by Gemma’s friendly and personable approach. Her singing improved over the weeks as did her self confidence as Gemma works with you as an individual and tailors lessons to suit the student and what they’d like to achieve. Lots of interesting and useful exercises to improve your voice and never any doubt that you’re in the safe hands of a very capable professional. Highly recommend. More...

What a great vocal teacher! Gemma has given me some really useful techniques to strengthen and develop the middle part of my register which I’ve been struggling with for years. She’s much more than a singing teacher because she gets to know what you need and has a fantastic knowledge of how the voice works as well as how to get the most from a song. Highly recommended.

I love my singing lessons with Gemma and look forward to them every week. Gemma is easy going, friendly and clearly loves what she does. She explains why she's asking you to do certain things or make certain sounds and it all pieces together beautifully. My singing has come on leaps and bounds as well as my confidence. And that is definitely all down to her guidance and belief in me. More...

I was performing and singing for a couple of years before i went to see Gemma, This was a decision i made after struggling to sing the higher songs i hoped to.
All i can say is i wish i had gone to see her sooner, in just one singing lesson she gave me tips on breathing, and how to enhance my current range and vocals to suit what i wanted sing.
I now use this method before every gig and everyone has told me how much my voice has improved and i am singing songs i never thought possible.

I've been singing in the studio and live for over thirty years (with acts such as Marden Hill, The Takashi O'Hashi Project and most recently The Dissent) and until recently never took a lesson. After struggling a bit in the studio with my falsetto recently I went to Gemma. And in a single session she sorted me out. She instantly identified the problem and had me doing exercises to remedy it then and there. Within minutes I'd got my old power and precision back - and the next Dissent single's going to be all the better for Gemma's input! Gemma's unpretentious, pragmatic and completely professional – and she knows how to make sure you feel at ease! More...

After a hiatus of many years from singing lessons I had some with Gemma for a period of about 8 months last year and couldn't believe the progress I made. She is hugely knowledgeable, personable and always knew the tricks to open up my voice. I made big strides each and every time I saw her from increasing my range to smoothing out my bridge to more power and consistency. Now I'm living on the other side of the world it will be very difficult to find another teacher who I can learn so much from and gel with on a personal level too. More...

At singing lessons with Gemma I valued the most that I have been treated as an individual. But not only as a singer, but also as a human being. She carefully listened to my goals, worries and insecurities, and according to that she would come up with a variety of vocal exercise, some of them seemed to improve my singing right away! I was blown away with the depth of knowledge Gemma has about singing/teaching, and all questions I had were answered and that helped me understand a bit more about myself and why do I sound in certain way and how to work on it to make it sound better. I particularly enjoyed singing with microphone! If you are a person who is maybe a bit shy Gemma will help you to work on your self-confidence too, as she helped me, she's kind and encouraging and will know how to get you where you want to be (as long as you cooperate of course). I got my singing lessons booked with Gemma as a gift from my husband, who also had been Gemma's student for several months, and it was one of the best gifts I have ever been given. 5 stars. More...

Gemma is an amazing vocal coach and I highly recommend her. I was incredibly nervous before our first class and was instantly put at ease by her relaxed and welcoming presence. She has a huge amount of knowledge and expertise and I found myself very quickly getting out of my own way to sing like I've never sung before. I honestly didn't know that voice was inside me!

By my 4th class I was feeling confident enough to sing in front of other people and have done so on a number of occasions now. This would never have happened without Gemma's help.

Thank you so much Gemma! I can't thank you enough for your patience and support. �

A month ago I finally decided to bite the bullet and take up singing lessons. I've always loved to sing and I am currently in a band so I thought it would be a good investment both on a personal level and as a musician. I found Gemma after searching online for teachers, the reviews I had read made choosing her an easy decision. I remember walking to my first lesson and the nerves were quite bad, however within a minute of meeting Gemma I felt completely at ease. I cannot emphasise enough what a lovely person she is and most importantly what a fantastic teacher she is.In my first three lessons I have already learnt so much, she has a fantastic understanding of how the voice works, exercises are challenging but fun and she explains things in a way that makes correcting your mistakes easy. I never feel embarrassed to ask questions either.Even though it is still early days I have noticed an improvement in my range, my breathing is improving and above all else I feel that my confidence in my own voice is improving.I cannot recommend her enough and I'm really looking forward to the lessons ahead!
