When I met Fran, I had the smallest hope that my voice could be rehabilitated, after years of miss-use and in turn- vocal fatigue. Not only did Fran achieve this for me, she inspired and taught me how to become a vocal coach myself. Fran's approach and teaching methods, along with her impeccable knowledge of the voice has enabled me to reach goals I never thought possible. Fran is an astounding teacher! ("they are as tight as a drum, it doesn't get much better than this" - Chris Evans, BBC Radio 2.)
Fran’s energy and enthusiasm is inspiring. She is a superb teacher who gave me the confidence and valuable techniques required to reach my singing potential and keep my voice strong & healthy. Every session with her is engaging and a lot of fun - I would highly recommend Fran to anyone seeking vocal tuition or advice.
I've been seeing Fran for vocal coaching for over 10 years. Always positive, enthusiastic, encouraging and knowledgable, Fran's teaching style has always inspired me with the confidence I needed to deliver my best performance. I hugely enjoy every lesson with her! Oops, that wasn't all - Whether you need help with technique, performance and delivery tips, confidence and constructive feedback or all of the above, Fran has always been hugely helpful, and clearly draws from a wealth of experience and knowledge.
I began working with Fran eight years ago and was immediately impressed by her enthusiasm and work ethic. Throughout these years, from working on cruise ships and recording studios, to making my own music film and going on tour, Fran has always been there ensuring that my technique is both safe and efficient, as well as forever encouraging me to dig deeper and find the raw emotion in my work. Thanks Fran!
I met Fran when I was a young, aspiring singer, having had little previous experience. Not only did she teach me how to get the most out of my voice through a series of fun exercises and techniques, but she built my confidence immensely and taught me valuable skills that I've carried with me through my artist career so far and will continue to do so. I couldn't recommend Fran highly enough for her genuine dedication, kindness and ongoing support. Very talented and lovely lady!
I worked with Fran when I was at University and was heartbroken to have only found her in my last year. She was an inspiration for my singing and helped me understand of the inner workings of my larynx and vocal chords, which in turn helped me to strengthen my voice. We worked on my posture, breathing, amongst other things and managed to record some songs in her home studio. She was fantastic fun, but equally professional; not just a teacher, but a friend too, and I couldn’t recommend anybody more highly!
I was nervous about having vocal lessons having not sung for many years but Fran put me at ease immediately with her relaxed and fun style and after only the first lesson I was enjoying singing once again. Her knowledge of vocal technique is extensive and given the practise I felt Fran could take me as far as I wanted to go.
Oh my word. I just have to say a big thank you Fran. This workshop was fantastic and I have loads of techniques ready to use for when I'm feeling too quiet and wavery. I really enjoyed today and am on a high. Great to meet everyone there and thank you for your feedback.
I was only blessed with Fran as my singing teacher for a short while, but her enthusiastic and encouraging approach really got my voice to a place I loved. Without that fantastic start I'm sure I would have neither the singing voice I have today, nor the confidence in it I enjoy.
Excellent, engaging session. I went in thinking I understood most of the topic but ended up learning so much more through a brilliantly paced presentation which was expertly presented by Fran. She also answered and explained every question the group had thoroughly and perfectly. It really was a great session.
I had always wanted to sing. I felt that I could but I was overwhelmingly shy. I occasionally could get up and sing at a social event after a little dutch courage but in the main I felt that at age 46 my chance to sing was over. I was introduced to Fran by another friend and over the year and a half she worked with me she helped me to develop my confidence, technique and made me realise that I was a singer and that I could perform. Fran was my coach, mentor and friend and through her I began singing with my own band and also in a duo with the man who became my darling husband. I now regularly perform at events and festivals. She is a lovely person a great teacher and an inspiration.
This presentation was jam packed with useful information and lots of exercises that can help on a daily basis. Fran's delivery was presented at a good pace. She explained each section with easy to understand information. Just the right balance of science and practical work!!
