Ian’s style is relaxed, non-judgemental, supportive and fun. He helped me tune in to my body’s way of naturally singing, without force, helping me unlock areas of my voice I’d never used before. Ian is a sensitive teacher and a good listener so was able to tune into what I needed to help me move to the next stage. Heartily recommended!

I came to Ian with very little confidence in my voice and a lot of emotional baggage, and he has taken me on a great journey helping me to tackle the mental, emotional and physical blocks that have been necessary to find my voice. He is nurturing and gentle, hard working and generous with his time. He has worked patiently to coax me from being withdrawn and protected and I’m starting to feel I can confidently present my voice to the world. This is a gift beyond measure.

Ian is a very patient teacher who would identify your areas of strength and help you further develop them while working through your weak and problem areas, all in a very friendly and supportive environment. You would also have the opportunity to record therefore listening to your own voice, objectively evaluate your own progress and gain more confidence as a singer. I now feel more comfortable and confident with my voice, which I never have before. I strongly recommend Ian as a teacher!

Can’t thank Ian enough for giving me back my confidence in my voice and introducing me to new techniques and exercises to develop my range and sound. Ian is a great coach to work with, friendly and professional without any pretence or agenda. I would always leave my singing lessons feeling refreshed and excited, they were very productive times.

I’ve had the pleasure to work with Ian since 2013 – he’s just an amazing teacher! He really does understand what can be done with your voice and gets the best out of it. I am now able to sing songs I never thought I could, thanks to Ian’s individual training schedule and fun way of teaching the right techniques. I’ve been travelling to London once a month just to meet Ian in his studio for a great 2 hour singing lesson that I wouldn’t want to miss once. https://soundcloud.com/simonedenauw

Ian’s a fantastic and friendly singing teacher who, (unlike my previous teachers), allowed me to break out of my shell and learn to find my voice in a comfortable and fun setting. Would highly recommend him.
