I came to Russell having last sung 35 years previously in a very good semi-professional American choir and with the ambition, in retirement, to sing again for pleasure, to a high standard. Russell takes you from where you are, gently but firmly, to where you think you'd like to be as a singer -- and to exceed your own expectations. Baritone, Philharmonia Chorus

Russell is an inspirational teacher whose musical knowledge, encouragement, and patience have given me the technique to improve and the confidence to enjoy my singing. Contralto, Highgate Choral Society

BRILLIANT JUST BRILLIANT - I am in my 70s but thanks to Russell, my voice is in excellent trim, and at a recent re-audition for the London Symphony Chorus I not only passed but was told my voice is getting better and better. If you want help, fun and enthusiasm, Russell is the guy. Bass-Baritone, London Symphony Chorus

Russell is a great teacher - I have always enjoyed his lessons and have recommended him very highly to other singers (who have taken regular lessons with him too). As a singing teacher and professional singer myself, I have found his approach exciting and very effective. I sing in a blues rock band, and also perform regularly with jazz instrumentalists - so classical singing is a bit of a treat for me! It's something I intend to develop more when I have more time, and I would only consider doing this with Russell. I checked out quite a few other classical teachers and discovered it was very hard to find someone as good as him. Although I teach all genres of singing - and vocal development that can underpin any style, I would always refer anyone wanting to develop their classical singing to Russell. He has a very knowledgable understanding of voice - a wonderful sense of musicality and a great ear for detail - and for getting your voice to respond in a really great way. Soprano, Jazz/Rock Singer and teacher
