I was looking for a singing teacher and I found Huw! I'm so glad! He is an excellent teacher, energetic, cheerful and encouraging. He teaches in a clear, gentle and positive way with lots of affirmation He obviously loves what he's doing - and that is infectious! Lessons are enjoyable and engaging, and learning comes easily. Huw listens carefully for the true individuality of your voice and then enables you to give expression to that unique voice. Beverley Bodenstein

After a period of feeling confused about where I was going vocally and after a year I decided that I needed to go back to basics and re-train in order for my voice to settle correctly. From the offset Huw was able to identify the vocal issues I was having difficulties with and we began working immediately in order to solve them from a technical perspective, his approach to vocal pedagogy is friendly, relaxed and informal but underneath that is a high level of analysis and holistic awareness for the individual. After working technically for some time, his wealth of knowledge about repertoire and suitability for my voice and development introduced me to study appropriate pieces which were challenging but reinforced the training/techniques we had applied. Huw encouraged me to audition for the Royal Welsh College of Music and Drama and as of September, thanks to his support and highly specialist teaching I will be studying the PGDip vocal course there in Cardiff. Thanks Huw!

Mae Huw yn feistr ar ei grefft sy’n defnyddio amrywiaeth eang o dechnegau i dynnu’r gorau allan o’i fyfyrwyr. Mae o bob tro’n addasu’r wers i anghenion y myfyrwyr er mwyn iddynt gyrraedd eu llawn botensial. Ond y peth pwysicaf i mi, yn ogystal â gwella sgiliau, ydy’r ffaith fy mod yn mwynhau ac mae gwers o awr yn dod i ben yn rhy sydyn bob tro.

Huw came highly recommended after I spent some time looking for a singing teacher in the local area. We were looking for someone to give my son some guidance during a time when his voice was changing, and he needed some expert direction. The first time we met, Huw was able to pin point exactly what my son needed to develop his voice, at the same time delivering this tuition with energy, vibrancy and humour. He has developed and excellent relationship with my teenager which brings out the best in him. Huw's encouragement has given him much more confidence!

Ar ol ymddeol ac ymuno a chor, benderfynais chwilio am wersi canu. Mae Huw wedi fy nghyflwyno i fyd newydd. Gwyddwn i ddim bod y llais yn gweithio fel yna! Mae'n athro naturiol. Yn fedrus, bwyllog, ystyrlon ond pendant.

A new adventure for an elderly complete non-singer.I had nervously joined a local community choir and immediately decided I needed urgent helpto help me to be able to contribute and enjoy this new challenge.
For me it has worked out perfectly. I had explained my complete ignorance and inability, and my goal of being able to enjoy singing, and Huw bravely took me on. A year on, and great progress. I have really appreciated not only Huw's excellent technical knowledge of how to get the best out of my voice, but his patience and encouragement. This has given me the confidence I needed to keep trying. An excellent teacher. Thank you Huw.
