Testimonials

Here are a selection of testimonials from students of Born To Sing Music:

Within minutes of me starting my singing & meeting my vocal coach I knew that he meant business and his professionalism stood out.

I knew from that moment I felt that I was going to get somewhere. My lessons are totally enjoyable because he’s a cool dude who has such faith in me.  Thanks to this great and gentle man I now sing on cruise ships which I thoroughly enjoy. He is such a miracle and lets you believe the sky is the limit all thanks to my angel, Mr Watson.

Born To Sing Music Testimonial

I started singing lessons around 5 years ago. At the time I was suffering from depression after the breakup of my marriage and was advised by health professionals to find myself a hobby to give me something other than my problems to concentrate on.

I’ve always enjoyed singing but only to myself or my children, so picked up the yellow pages and found Mr Watson’s advert. I nervously rang the number but was soon put at ease by his friendly telephone manner. I found Mr Watson very easy to talk to.

The first lesson was really enjoyable. We did some breathing exercises to start with. Strange I thought as I can already breathe but the need for these exercises soon became apparent as my singing progressed. I then did a few scales and finished the lesson singing “my way”, me, singing in front of someone! Really enjoyed myself and continued with my lessons for around two years.

Mr Watson gave me the confidence to audition for my local musical theatre group. I got in and have been performing with them for the last four and a half years. Last year I played John the disciple in Jesus Christ Superstar. I also sing in a choir performing charity concerts four times a year.

I work as a school caretaker and have also performed in a few musical shows with the students in front of their parents (these are the scary ones). I also auditioned for the X Factor and got through to the second round.

Music is now a big part of my life as you can see. I still get down from time to time but manage to bring myself out of it with a song or two. Since Mr Watson moved away I have to admit I miss our lessons, especially the many sing songs we had together. I remembered we recorded an awesome version of imagine by John Lennon (well I think it was anyway). Singing has changed my life so much. Mr Watson gave me the confidence to achieve my dreams and for that I shall be eternally grateful to him.

Born To Sing Music Testimonial from EvieMy teacher is bubbly, fun and a very good singer. I really love the way that he teaches, there is no pressure and he makes every lesson interesting, fun, exciting and sort of uplifting. He makes you realise that you can actually sing. I always come away with a smile on my face and look forward to my lessons with him. Since I started my lessons I have gained so much confidence. I will need to be able to stand up and sing when I audition for Performing Arts School in a years time, and this is something that I was dreading doing before. I know that by continuing with these lessons I will definitely be able to do so.

All my life I’ve enjoyed singing, mostly for family. My late husband Peter was a great guitarist and we regularly entertained family and friends. Peter’s and my mother’s favourite song was Ave Maria and when my mother came to stay they would both insist I sang it at least once before we went to bed. Sadly Peter died suddenly in 1997 and I rarely sang again for the following thirteen years. I certainly couldn’t sing the Ave Maria and never thought I would again.

During the course of planning a big party for family and friends as I approached my sixtieth birthday I decided to have a few singing lessons to inspire me with a modicum of confidence. All our family gatherings involve a sing-song, so I knew I couldn’t avoid one. For years following Peter’s death I had no voice but in our local Yellow Pages I found the most amazing singing teacher – Mr Watson. As my birthday approached I felt ready to let the joy of singing back into my life. I did sing the Ave Maria on the night of my birthday and it’s also on my first CD which is created by Mr Watson’s Born to Sing Productions.

Born To Sing Music Testimonial from BernadetteTwo years down the road I am still having singing lessons with Mr Watson. I’m just about to record my second CD and preparing songs for my third. I absolutely love my lessons now and look forward to them eagerly every week. Mr Watson is a brilliant teacher – he’s great fun and he has certainly given me the confidence I lacked. He enjoys my singing so much we are planning on doing some live performances and he’s also keen to put my next CD on sale. (The first two were just for friends and family.)

I now also have a lovely partner, John, who is a drama teacher. He is my best and kindest critic and gives me tips on performing.

I am so delighted to have music back in my life. Now approaching my 62nd birthday, I run my own vegetarian food business, which I started nine years ago, and all I need to do when I feel under stress is to listen to a CD, preferably one with a song on it that I want to learn. This instantly distresses’ me and lifts my spirits. I even sometimes listen to one of my own, which I know sounds big-headed, but in fact I just love this new feeling that I’m not rubbish. And I’ve also discovered how the act of singing itself is such a terrific mood enhancer.

Was it not for a great teacher I would not have fulfilled my dreams.
