"I feel extremely lucky to have been introduced to Matt Ward and to have him on my team of amazing people helping me during this busy time. Not only is Matt a great teacher, but he has a lot of practical, personal experience as a singer/actor and performer. He has helped me immensely with the voice break, as he has been through that change himself and understands exactly whats happening to my voice. I was able to increase my range in a very short amount of time with Matt’s tuition. He has been amazing, and has always given me the kind of professional treatment and personal attention that has increased my confidence as well as my ability."
“ After just 2 lessons with Matt Ward, my voice feels freer, more agile and I feel like I am not working so hard to reach both top and bottom end of my range. Being a working singer, you can fall into habits and not realise just how much your real voice gets lost. Matt is helping to find my true voice again, and for this I thankyou from the bottom of my vocal chords “ - Charne Louise
