I have been working with Julian for almost 8 months now and am delighted to have found such an accomplished mentor. Julian is a very talented teacher who really understands the workings of the voice and is able to use creative abilities to individualise approach to each student. His enthusiasm and love for job is very obvious and he is an extremely encouraging teacher who always looks for the positive aspects in students. At the same time, he is both pragmatic and realistic, and helps you to understand your strengths and weaknesses and how to improve on both.

I have seen great results in a relatively short amount of time. Not only has my range increased, I now sing with vibrato and most importantly my voice sounds far more connected and my breaks are now hardly noticeable.

As I continue to train my voice I feel confident that with Julian I will continue to improve and enjoy the benefits of a stronger singing voice. Most importantly, I look forward to the fun I have working with Julian every lesson - he is a great source of inspiration and always makes me laugh!

Julian has helped with my breath control and strengthened my voice. This allows me to sing longer without hurting my vocal cords or throat; it has also increased my vocal range. Julian is a great teacher, who's very supportive and helpful, making sure you understand everything you're learning.

I feel very fortunate to have come across a voice teacher like Julian Ward-Smith, his positive attitude along with immeasurable patience allows students an environment free of pressure. I always eager for my next class with Julian. I've been with Julian for over a two months now and I've come to see how his techniques help me as well as other students. Thanks for all your help Julian and I look forward to our next session!

I want to thank Julian for giving me this incredible gift of expanding my range and building my power so I can sing more songs with wider ranges. My range is now connected and I can sing 2 octaves. I have now more shows and my band appreciates the lessons if you know what I mean.

Thank you, again.

I can now wake up at 6:00 AM and start rehearsing at 7:00 without any problem. I am building towards a 2 octave range now and I only used to be able to sing one. My repertoire has greatly expanded and I know I would not have achieved this without Julian's help.
