"Brenda is a wonderful teacher. She gave specific and clear advice and instructions that was incredibly helpful in preparing me for my recording session. The situational advice she gave leading up to the session also made it possible for me to relax and focus on the music rather than my technique, and I am very grateful."

"Well into my 50's, I decided I had to follow a long held dream to sing and find my voice. Problem was I sang terribly and didn't know a thing about music. I met Brenda and we started. She was so encouraging and took me step by step to learn. Do follow your dreams with Brenda; she will inspire and teach you very, very well."
