I originally had piano tuition with Mike some years ago. I went on to study for a BPA(Hons) degree at The Northern School of Contemporary Dance and thus, sadly unable to keep attending my lessons. As a performer, I decided to pluck up the courage and arrange singing lessons.
I did not hesitate to get back in touch with Mike as I knew instantly that he would teach me correctly; having fantastic patience and making you feel very relaxed and welcome. I had some singing lessons throughout my performance training but I can honestly say Mike taught me more in just one lesson than all the lessons combined that I have had before.
Mike is always professional and his talent and passion for music always show.
I have achieved Grade 3 Practical Solo Singing exam with Mike in 2012 gaining 87 marks out of 100 and also in the past whilst studying with Mike, Grade 3 Trinity College London Theory of Music in the year 2000 gaining a Distinction. In addition I have been successful with my Grade 5 Practical Solo Singing exam with Mike in 2013 gaining 76 marks out of 100.
