Ms Victoria Bourne MA Music
Tim Riley Date: June 2021
Victoria is an amazing singer and a wonderful teacher - knowledgeable, engaging and insipring. Her lessons have helped me hugely with my vocal technique, enabling me to tackle advanced and difficult music, and are great fun into the bargain. Victoria is well-versed in a wide range of musical styles and has been able to support me in exploring repertoire in diverse genres including classical, folk and musical theatre. She has really boosted my confidence as a performer and makes singing a joy. I always leave her lessons with a smile on my face! As well as really feeling the benefit myself, friends I sing with have commented on how much my singing has improved since I started lessons with Victoria. I would recommend Victoria as a teacher for singers of all levels without reservation.

I moved to the area 3 years ago and was missing singing and performing. Through a friend I joined The Altogether Choir in 2018. Victoria is excellent at coaching the choir to be confident and improving our technique to perform in front of audiences. This year I have had individual lessons with Victoria. She is so patient and encouraging. She has helped me to believe in my ability. Super teacher.
Joi Demery Date: June 2021
I have been a member of Victoria’s choir for nearly 4 years and participated in many vocal workshops. I have really enjoyed singing a variety of music and also being vocally challenged and improving my singing technique. Victoria is an amazing teacher, with an ability to bring out the best in people, all with patience, kindness and a great sense of humour.

Victoria is an amazing teacher! She has given me so much help with my singing and my confidence has improved no end! I would recommend Victoria to anyone who wants to improve their singing technique and make the best sound they can.
Claire Harper Date: June 2021
Victoria is an amazing singing teacher and vocalist, and I have loved my lessons with her, both in real life and online! I came back to singing after a break of about 15 years and she has helped me so much with technique, my confidence and in being able to sing a wider variety of music and styles. The sessions are relaxed and fun, and always make me feel good no matter what has been going on in my day!
Rae Chang Date: June 2021
Over the course of a few online sessions, Victoria has helped me sing and accompany myself with more confidence and improve breath control with her warm, professional and encouraging manner. Her breadth of knowledge, ability to adapt techniques and provide simple but effective instruction is key to her expertise as a vocal coach. Thank you.

Neill Date: December 2017
I have had lessons with Victoria now for 5 years, its the longest I've ever comitted to any extra activity. I've joined her choir as well and I love it. I could never sing and now just passed grade 4 with merit. I can't recommend highly enough.
Tom Date: December 2017
I've been singing with Victoria for three years now, my technique has improved greatly and she gave me the confidence to sing solo and in her choir.
Lou Date: December 2017
I was quite petrified about singing but thought I'd give it a go. Since I've had lessons with Victoria my confidence has grown. I can sing high notes which I couldn't reach before. She's great to work with.
Chris Date: March 2014
'Joining the Hippodrome Choir is easily the best thing that I have done in a long time. Its both challenging and great fun, I never thought I could sing but thought I would give it a go and have never looked back. Victoria chooses great music - a mix of bluesy ballads and also more up tempo stuff. Its a great mix of people of all ages and we all get on really well. If you are looking for a really good sing and plenty of opportunities to sing at other venues (Colston Hall foyer, on The Matthew and at St Nicholas market to name a few!) then do come along - it really is the more the merrier!'
Shari Date: March 2014
'I joined The Hippodrome Choir a year ago after attending a short singing course with Victoria. I wanted to pursue singing as a fun activity but the choir has now become a highlight of my week. I look forward to spending time with a diverse group of friendly and talented people. The choir is warm and welcoming so don't be afraid to come by! I've noticed an improvement in my voice and credit our amazing coach Victoria for this. I hope to sing with these lovely people for a very long time'.
