Testimonial from Jacquelynn in Pennyslvania ….. http://www.jacquelynnware.com/

“I began working with Niamh because I have always loved Irish Traditional music and songs. My lessons with Niamh have focused on building repertoire in the genre, focusing on authentic vocal stylization, and so much more. Niamh has become an incredible
mentor to me in my time working with her. As a professional musician I have found it difficult to focus on my own art while teaching and performing, Niamh has helped me produce and plan an album all while being one of my biggest musical supporters. Niamh has also helped me regain confidence in my singing in ALL genres and taught me so much musically in the Irish Traditional idiom. She is so knowledgeable and not only do we learn the musical stylings, but the history of the pieces we are working on as well. I am so grateful at how rewarding my lessons with Niamh have been.”

Testimonial from Pam in San Diego ………..

“My singing took a leap forward after I started working with Niamh – from pretty-good amateur to credible professional singer. Listeners remarked on my improvement after just one lesson. I’d had voice lessons before, but traditional a cappella ballad singing is unusual, and I wanted to study with a specialist who is a master of the genre. In addition to basic vocal technique, Niamh has really helped me with phrasing and bringing expression and emotion to my performances. She coached me through my first folk festival performance and my first CD. Niamh is always encouraging and supportive, yet I know I can trust her to give me an honest critique if there’s a problem I need to work on. I was surprised how well the internet works for voice lessons, too. Even for things like vocal tone or physical technique, the live video and audio quality have been completely sufficient for instruction.”
