ZACH BURNS

MA Student at

Royal Academy of Music

“I worked with Ben to prepare for an audition for a place on the Musical Theatre Masters Programme at the Royal Academy of Music.  After only six months working with Ben, my range has increased substantially.  Ben helped me pick out pieces, coached them up to audition standard, and increased my vocal ability ten-fold. Most importantly, thanks to his help, I was awarded a place and scholarship on the Royal Academy of Music program. Ben has been, without a doubt, the best vocal teacher I have ever had. I cannot recommend him highly enough.”

BELLE QUINLAN

MA Student at

Guildford School of Acting

“Ben is a brilliant vocal coach. He taught me to find a huge range of voice qualities I didn't know I had and helped me prepare every step of the way to succeed at my drama school auditions."

AARON BLADEN

Graduate of Royal Academy of Music

"Ben's knowledge of the voice is second to none. He is always my go-to when I want to tackle new material or hard audition material. He will make me understand the technical side of my voice without it being confusing whilst having a passion for teaching and singing. Would highly recommend!"

RHIANNON KIRK

Performing Arts Lecturer

“Ben is a phenomenal teacher, the way he explains, demonstrates and helps you apply technique is incredible! Lessons with Ben will absolutely transform your voice. I cannot recommend Ben highly enough!”

BARRY KEENAN

Newsies (West End)

"I am proud to have worked with Ben on one of the most challenging jobs of my career. He's not only a wonderful musical director but also a great person to have your back when the task ahead seems impossible. Working with him was an absolute joy and I look forward to the day when I'm lucky enough to be guided by him once more!"

CATH LAND

Mother to THOMAS LAND (client)

"My 12 year old son has thoroughly enjoyed singing lessons with Ben; he has improved dramatically and learned so much. Ben is an excellent teacher; his enthusiasm and his great sense of humour make the lessons very enjoyable and, most importantly, he REALLY knows what he’s talking about."
