Heather has been teaching my daughter piano and singing for 4 years and last term she achieved Grade 3 in piano Distinction. The term before that Grade 2 Distinction in rock and pop singing. My daughter looks forward to her lessons and has gained so much confidence and improved so much. Heather is very encouraging and knowledgeable. Heather is a fun teacher, but also sets clear goals for my daughter, which is great. She also communicates with us well how our daughter is getting on. My daughter adores her because Heather has a fantastic sense of humour and is always encouraging and consistent in her high levels of teaching. She is very perceptive and has brought out the best in our daughter. We have recommended her to so many parents at school!

Heather teaches my 3 children - one boy and two girls. She teaches them all piano and the two girls singing - musical theatre and classical. She's always reliable and thorough in her teaching. My eldest daughter is now ready to audition for music colleges.

I come to Heather for singing lessons - she's helped with my technique lots. I now sing with much better volume and more in-tune. I sing with more expression and have been showing off my new skills at church and my friends are amazed. I recommend her a lot.

Heather teaches me and my son piano. She started teaching my son first and then me. I saw how much progress my son was making and I had to join in myself and start piano lessons. I love it! My son, who is only 8, and myself (a lot older than 8...) are both progressing a lot and Heather knows how to teach adults and children equally well.

I tried a lot of singing teachers before I found Heather. She is very intelligent and witty and knowledgeable and explains things very clearly - my technique as a singer has improved immensely under her tuition. She has helped me come out of my shell and improve my acting ability when singing. She has taught me to find joy in my voice and singing again. She is very organised and disciplined. She sets me targets for each lesson and doesn't let me get complacent. I trust her a lot as a singing teacher and expert in her field.

Ian (age 6) - I love my piano teacher Miss Longman she is the best! I was the first pupil in my class to take Piano Prep Test and the certificate was handed to me in assembly. Me and my mum are so proud!!!

My teenage daughter has autism and we tried a few singing teachers before finding Heather. Heather is very patient and is an instinctive, intuitive teacher. My daughter enjoys her lessons very much and her improved confidence has helped her in other areas as well.

Finally found someone local to teach our son recorder! He's been wanting to learn for ages! Heather's a great tutor; really reliable and she's able to teach all the grades. Our son has been learning with her for a year now and he loves showing off to us all the tunes he can play :-)

I failed my Grade 5 theory twice before my mum got in-touch with Heather and I passed with Merit. Thanks a lot Heather.

My two sons go to Miss Longman for piano lessons. My boys have very different personalities and I've been most impressed with how Miss Longman adapts her teaching style to meet their characters and abilities. My boys fight over who can go first. Her music studio is very stylish and they love her piano. My eldest boy is due to take his first exam in the winter.

I started singing lessons with Heather when I retired. My wife bought me one for a Birthday present and I loved it so much I booked some more. Lessons with Heather are great fun. We've learnt lots of Frank Sinatra and Elvis Presley songs. Even my wife tells me I've improved (and she is always right).

Very happy with Miss Heather. My daughter has been taught by her for past 5 years and has gone from nothing to Grade 5 piano distinction. She also received distinction in Grade 6 singing. My daughter enjoys her lessons so much.

I was taught by Heather when I was a teenager. 10 years later and I'm still having lessons with her. Every lesson I learn something new and have lots of laughs on the way. My little girl can't wait to start singing lessons with Heather next term.

I sing in a function band and I came to Heather for lessons in how to build up my stamina. I got so much more from the lessons than I could have imagined. Heather is such an inspiring, ambitious teacher. She encouraged me to write my own material and helped me be more creative and engaged with my singing. My band members noticed how much better my stage presence and performance skills have become under Heather's guidance I feel I'm much closer to fulfilling my potential as a musician and artist. Her work with me has been invaluable.
