I just have to say a massive “thank you” to both yourself and your team on an absolutely fantastic performance from all your students in the Olympia. It was such an enjoyable evening and the solo singers were totally awesome they gave me goose bumps they are all a credit to you but on a personal note I have to thank you again for giving Charlie great confidence in himself. I could see a big difference a year on and he has really enjoyed another fantastic year with you. Adrienne & Charlie
