I have been fortunate enough to coach and teach some superbly talented students, many of whom show incredible drive and determination to work on everything I coach them on. I'm eternally grateful to and proud of each and every one of them. Here are a few testimonials to give you an understanding of my processes and techniques.
One of the most professional coaches I have ever met...
Ruth came to us after being highly recommended from a very reputable musical theatre training facility that my daughter attends called Stagebox, as they felt she would benefit from some additional singing lessons.
From day one my daughter Poppy loved Ruth’s lessons, she’s not only knowledgable at getting the very best out of her voice, but her lessons are relaxed in a very friendly environment.
Poppy’s voice has come on tremendously within the first year with Ruth, her range is stronger and more controlled with a lovely tone.
Its also comforting knowing that with Ruth’s knowledge, Poppy’s voice is being nurtured and protected as she grows throughout her childhood.
I trust Ruth implicitly with Poppy being guided under her wing and we’re so grateful.
Poppy adores Ruth and her lessons and we won’t ever be looking back!!!

It's always been an ambition of mine to be able to sing but I put it off for years. Ruth’s friendly approach made me feel calm and comfortable. She taught me how to control my breath using different techniques such as lip trills, scales, posture and tension release exercises. After a few weeks of learning the basics we then found my voice. Ruth quickly diagnoses areas you need to work on so I constantly feel like I am improving.
I have been training with Ruth for over a year now and I performed at her annual showcase after only six months of lessons! I highly recommend Ruth to singers of all levels. 5/5.
Ruth is a patient and kind teacher who has helped me build my confidence while performing and has greatly improved my singing skills. She always encourages me to perform and she is helping me work through my Grade 5 RockSchool Vocals Exam and my Duke of Edinburgh at the moment.
The confidence I have gained from Ruth in being able to perform is worth every penny. Not only has Ruth managed to bring out the best of what I already had, but she has enabled me to achieve a range I never thought possible with such power and ease, giving me the confidence to perform songs I would never have attempted. I'm now incredibly confident of being able to sing any song I’ve practiced with Ruth in public, and know that I can smash it out of the park! Thank you Ruth.
Ruth has been a fantastic vocal coach for me and I thoroughly enjoy my lessons with her. She is very friendly and makes you feel very comfortable and this along with her vast knowledge is really bringing out the best in my voice. I feel like my technique and ability have improved a lot with Ruth’s guidance and I would highly recommend her to anyone looking for 1st class singing teacher!

Ruth is one of the most professional vocal coaches I have ever come across. She has excellent technical knowledge whilst having the ability to explain and deconstruct for any level.
I would recommend anyone who wishes to improve their singing ability be it an amateur or professional to consider Ruth!
