'JP manages to combine impressive technique with great feel and emotion'

'Pale Blue crosses over musical genres, a little more soulful than  
straight Opera, so JP was good fit as he manages to combine  
impressive technique with great feel and emotion.'

Lessons with John Paul were brilliant. His vocal exercises were thorough and I found that I was using parts of my voice I'd never really used or explored before. I was having trouble with vocal tiredness but after his exercises I found that my voice was in top shape.  John Paul is encouraging and makes you feel completely at ease. With a super talent and a wealth of musical knowledge, John Paul's lessons are definitely worth experiencing!

My daughter had been struggling with tone and volume with other vocal coaches but I could tell immediately the lessons with John Paul were producing the changes she needed. The change in her tone was particularly noticeable when practising scales and the notes she had struggled with for 3 years are now perfect, which happened within a couple of lessons.  I had been hoping to see some differences within 6 months but her tone improved after the first lesson and continues to get better each time. John Paul knew her vocal range straight away and understood her vocal abilities which has been invaluable in knowing her vocal strengths. John Paul showed her the techniques that gave her control of volume in a way that doesn't sound forced. She's determined to improve even more and has loved learning all the new techniques. She usually sings pop/rock/jazz covers and is already producing a much better sound.

I have been a student with John Paul for over eighteen months and through his patient and concise teaching he has enabled me to gain a detailed understanding of my individual voice and inspired me to have the confidence to pursue a career as a classical singer.
 
What makes John Paul such an effective teacher is that he truly understands that each voice is individual and his lessons are planned in such detail that week on week you feel the voice begin to grow and flourish whilst also working on repertoire which highlights your vocal growth.
 
A great singer himself he demonstrates exercises in which it is easy to see the fine details of the delicate mechanisms needed for vocal progression.
 
I cannot speak highly enough of John Paul. Through his passion and knowledge he has inspired me to gain confidence not only in my voice but in my potential to grow as an artist.
