"I had a very last minute audition & Charlie had absolutely no problem fitting me in at the last second. She understood how important this role was to me! She was SO helpful & thorough and she took the time to go through every piece with me bit by bit. I never once felt rushed, despite only booking an hour. She had practiced my pieces ahead of time so when I arrived she knew exactly what we needed to work on. She is a fantastic teacher who taught me so much about my voice from such a short session. She is 100% my go to teacher for important audition prep. A fantastic choice."
- Harriette Mullen (Understudy Cilla in Cilla The Musical UK Tour)
"I had lessons with Charlie-Jade for two years before applying to theatre school. Not only did Charlie-Jade teach me technically but also helped me deliver truth and really understand and communicate the lyric. I was awarded a place at my first choice of theatre school and was very thankful for the help and guidance given to me by Charlie-Jade" - Molly (Arts Educational Schools Student)
