"Rhonda is a warm hearted, responsive and knowledgeable teacher whose techniques are insane for creating openness, and freedom to my voice! She helped me to secure and study one of my dream roles, and I always felt in safe and caring hands with Rhonda Browne!"

"In the short time that my daughter has been taking guidance from Rhonda she has far exceeded what we thought would be possible in just a few months. Rhonda made us feel very comfortable in our decision to work with her before we’d even signed up. She is exceptionally knowledgeable about techniques and knows exactly how to bring the best out of my daughters voice. My daughter loves her lessons with Rhonda and after every session my daughter doesn’t stop buzzing about the work they have done. We could not ask for a better teacher and would recommend Rhonda to anyone looking for a teacher that can deliver what they say they can!"

“ Rhonda’s an amazing singing tutor. She’s been teaching my daughters both in person and, more lately, virtually. She makes the lessons fun and engaging and her expertise, enthusiasm and kindness shine through. She has helped my kids to sing a wide range of styles from choral music to pop. They have learnt so much about singing technique and have come on leaps and bounds. I can’t recommend Rhonda highly enough”

"For an ex head boy chorister who wanted someone to help him understand the process of vocal change, what he could do with his new voice & how to take it to the next level as an adult singer Rhonda has been amazing for Samuel. His confidence, singing technique & understand of how the voice works has just advanced so much in the last year."
- Samuel 15
“Our daughter has been having lessons with Rhonda for two years and the lessons are the highlight of her week!
She has progressed quickly through the grades and has been successful at a local singing festival where she won a prize. As lessons are during the school day we do not manage to see Rhonda face to face but she has been fantastic communicating with us by email and keeping us updated as to our daughter’s progress. Most importantly of all is that our daughter loves singing and Rhonda has encouraged and supported her every step of the way! “
