This is a little thank you to those people who over the years have been my guiding lights, influencers, trainers, support network & downright inspirational !
My first, ever classical sing teacher, who didn’t keep me long & on retiring passed me along to the sadly departed, Derek Marshall. What a stroke!
My first, true, classical singing teacher. A wonderfully funny man, with musicianship that blew my mind. This man really cemented my resolve to make singing my career.
Mr. H – My high school music teacher. A true gent with enormous desire to not just teach, but to listen & play any music of any genre. And he’s still at it …
Director of the Royal Academy of Music jazz course. I auditioned, he let me in, & I thrived with his guidance.
What an amazing woman with an exquisite voice. I’d never heard a voice such as hers before. She has taught me so much about singing & how to handle being a singer.
I don’t think I’ll ever again meet such a colossus!
Unbelievable in everything that he taught, composed & performed. (with a little bit of crazy thrown in for a laugh!)
In an industry where honesty & trust is paramount for an artist but seldom found, Dennis is my Super-Rock!
One of few musicians I know whose musical wavelength was, like mine. From the minute we first played together, from teenage-hood until his passing in 2018, he was my musical muse.
‘Betty” to those who loved her. And I really loved her. Love & loyalty beyond measure…
