I just wanted to write and let you know how pleased we are with the way my daughter Sarah’s singing lessons are progressing. She has been having weekly lessons at River Studios since June last year and her confidence and self-esteem is really beginning to grow.
Her voice coach Dan, is absolutely brilliant with her and been so supportive. He has endless patience, enthusiasm and commitment in what he does and is always so cheerful.
Dan may have mentioned to you that recent assessments on Sarah revealed that she is autistic and has anxieties and learning difficulties too. Life can be quite tough for her alot of the time but singing is the one thing she really enjoys and its wonderful to see her talent being nurtured. She looks forward to her lessons each week and learning new songs. Her achievements have been noticed by her music teacher, Russ Dyer at Oak Lodge School and she recently had the confidence to sing in front of her class and the headteacher! That would have been unthinkable this time last year.
I spoke to Russ Dyer yesterday and he was telling me he would be getting in touch to thank you for all the support you gave when he came to River Studios recently. He came with some Year 11 students working on their Gold Arts Award and said that they thoroughly enjoyed their time at the studios and gained valuable experience.
Thanks again for all your help – look forward to seeing you on Tuesday.
