Ms Buddug Verona James
Iwan Date: January 2011
I have been a pupil of Buddug’s since 1999. Her teaching is primarily based on ensuring the solid foundation without which no music can be made; a good and informed technique. Her understanding of the physiology of singing and ability to explain it is the key to ensuring this. Furthermore, her ability to define the inspiration; the reason, why we sing each line or word, combined with her own extraordinary nous as a performer ensure a learning process which is both hugely enjoyable and illuminating. Most importantly, she is a consistently kind and inspirational teacher, who engenders in her pupils the desire to improve, learn and succeed.

I have been studying with Buddug Verona James since 2006. She is an inspirational teacher, not only am I learning technique, in which Buddug is very accurate and strict, but also how to make choices on interpretation and finding dramatic reasons for the music and text. I feel lucky to have found such a teacher.

As my teacher for over ten years, what still strikes me about Buddug, much like my impression of her from my very first lesson as an eleven year old, is her boundless energy and passion for music. She is not afraid to speak her mind; a perfectionist who always strives to help her pupils produce work of the highest calibre. Her zest for performance never fails to ignite my enthusiasm, indeed, I would not be where I am today without her help. Always on the end of the phone ready to offer guidance and advice, from choosing audition repertoire to giving advice on what to wear for a show, Buddug becomes much more than simply a vocal coach to those she teaches; she becomes a dear friend.
