NEW TESTIMONIAL

Keesha is an inspirational, highly experienced singing teacher. I cannot recommend her highly enough. My only regret is that I did not sign up for lessons with Keesha years ago!

When I went along for my first lesson I naively thought that I might immediately come away with a golden tip from my new coach which would improve my voice. As it turned out I wasn't being so naive because even on that first session, Keesha armed me with a couple of amazingly powerful vocal exercises. My friends and family commented how there was an immediate, very noticeable improvement in my vocals.

I have always been the composer, piano player in my various bands and projects. Keesha, through her open minded approach and highly individualised lessons has coaxed the singing performer from within me. I always had confidence to perform, but, in the past only as a musician. Now I'm thoroughly enjoying getting out there doing vocal perdormances at paid gigs and open mic nights with the confidence she has instilled in me.

If you're thinking about getting lessons for yourself (or your children), you can do no better than Keesha. She gets 5 stars but I would give her a 10 if I could!
