“I was lucky enough to meet Jonathan in my first two years of training at London Studio Centre. Prior to this I had no experience singing and very little confidence in this field. Jonathan created such an encouraging environment for all of us to explore and grow our skill set and catered brilliantly for all abilities, getting the absolute best out of everyone. Jonathan’s excellent, positive and inspiring approach to teaching gave me the confidence and skills I needed to pursue a singing career beyond my training. I will forever be grateful for his wisdom, guidance and giggles along the way! Thanks, so much Jonathan!”

“What I always appreciated most about Jonathan’s lessons; was the level of technical detail he was able to go into to help me understand my own voice. He is extremely knowledgeable about his craft, and I found it invaluable to learn how my larynx works, so that I could apply this to my own singing practise. He is full of excellent tricks and exercises for getting the most out of people’s voices; I witnessed on multiple occasions his incredible knack of moulding someone’s voice into something they didn’t even know they had in them! Thank you, Jonathan.”

Jamie Munro Weston

“Jonathan helped me so much with my confidence in singing over the three years he taught me. He really took his time to make sure I understood all the technique and built my knowledge of singing. I now feel I have the confidence to sing to a good standard.”

The Voice Coach Testimonial - Hannah Bennett

“Jonathan has played a huge part in my professional career. He equipped me with the necessary tools to becoming a confident, technical and knowledgeable singer. Learning about the anatomy of the voice helped me to understand my instrument so that I could practice singing in a safe way and change vocal qualities to suit different repertoire. This enabled me to sing styles such as Contemporary Musical theatre, Legit, and Pop making me a more versatile performer. He is also a fantastic musician and created incredible arrangements for college performances. I have put his expertise into practice within both my professional performing career and within my teaching. I am forever grateful for what he has helped me to achieve!”

Kate Bassett

“My lessons with Jonathan were career changing. He unlocked potential I didn’t know I had and allowed my voice to do so much more. This has allowed me to be versatile and employable throughout my career. Lessons with him are challenging and inspiring both technically and artistically, he knows how to get the best from his students. 

The great thing about Jonathan is his duty of care to all of his students. He is a great support, and I have always been able to reach out to him for much needed advice throughout my career. There have been video calls and messages from long tours, where I have always felt his support, and that is where he goes above and beyond as a coach – It doesn’t end when the singing lesson is finished.”

The Voice Coach Testimonial - Paige Langley-Shaw

“Jonathan taught me to sing for 3 years, whilst training professionally at London Studio Centre. We first met at my audition – which was my first ever time singing. It was from this day that he took me under his wing and provided me with in-depth technical singing knowledge,  performance skills, audition experience and total confidence and joy to sing. Jonathan’s passion and love for his students has always held a special place in my heart and I cannot thank him enough for believing in me and others. I went from having zero singing experience, to singing solo on stage at New Wimbledon Theatre within the space of a year – all thanks to Jonathan. His passion, determination (and excellent accompanist skills on the piano) is wonderful, and I cannot recommend him enough. Thank you for everything!”
