My husband and I signed up for voice lessons with Edward approximately 7 months ago, after a lifetime of singing in choirs and for personal enjoyment, but without any professional coaching. Our objective was to improve our singing ability, gain better breath control, and expand our range. From the first lesson we were "hooked" by Edward's approach, enthusiasm, encouragement, and technique. We have seen steady progress, and have learned more in 7 months of weekly lessons than we both have over decades of singing! As busy professionals (ages 55 & 60) it has been hard to maintain a schedule of lessons and find the time to practice, but the sheer enjoyment of it has been so personally rewarding that we keep working at it, with Edward right there offering constant guidance and support. He has stretched us to go beyond what we thought we could achieve, and although we're not professionals on stage with our name in lights, we marvel at the improvement in our singing ability. Most importantly, Edward has given us back what we had both lost - a love for singing. He is truly a gifted teacher, with a warm and gracious personality to go with it. You will love working with him, and no matter what your level of singing ability is (from "none" to professional level) he will bring out the best natural voice in you that you never knew you had! We cannot recommend Edward highly enough.
