FOREST SINGING REVIEW
I came to see Kitty for singing lessons after decades of believing I "couldn't sing" because that's what I had been told. Kitty's unique approach to teaching, which combines being in nature with meditation and pranayama as well as warm up exercises and singing practise, really helped me to feel relaxed, grounded and in my body. I immediately felt comfortable and knew I was in good hands. With Kitty's encouragement and belief, I really enjoyed lessons and in a short time really noticed a difference in my confidence. And it turns out...
I can sing!
UKULELE COURSE REVIEW
Kitty is a brilliant ukulele teacher. She's so friendly, patient and welcoming in her lessons and that makes you feel at ease. I was an absolute beginner and after just one lesson I was confident playing a simple song. She provides excellent handouts so you can continue to practice at home. I had so much fun in Kitty's ukulele course and would definitely recommend it to everyone!!
