Singing Workshops & Gigs

Having attended three one-day workshops (Taunton, Glastonbury & Wellington) I am constantly telling my friends what a wonderful uplifting experience these workshops are. Many thanks to you for giving me such joy at a time when I most needed it. Maggie H.

I am a huge fan - not sure why you aren't more famous really!! Best wishes. Jenny

I sing 'natural voice' style at home in Sheffield and Yvette's workshop was 'the best'. Great warm up. Lovely choice of songs. Great venue, acoustics and setting. Lovely person and group.

Yvette is energetic and gives everybody confidence in singing. It lifts you up and gives a great feeling of community.

Superb experience - huge expertise, beautiful choice of music, amazing space/acoustics, fantastic singers.

Yvette has enough charisma, skill and humour and we all love each other.

Really positive and vibrant teacher. Good pace to the session. It was challenging but we bonded in our small groups (alto, soprano etc) and supported each other to learn the songs. I really enjoyed the sessions. I don't usually go to singing activities but the songs were so beautiful I stayed and felt amazing, joining in with everyone in the amazing ballroom.
