I could not recommend Ofelia highly enough.That says it all really, however she does come with all the qualifications required to be the great teacher that she is.
Her attitude and obvious patience towards her pupils is an attribute not always found in teaching.
If you have not heard her sing, do yourself a favour and go and see her on stage as soon as you can.You will then realise by listening to her that not only does she have a great voice, but she knows what she's talking about.
For those who would aspire to singing a little or a lot, I say "Do it".
Call her......... Now
Derek Cosburn, vocalist - Benchmark Quartet
I have been playing guitar and singing in a rock band for a few years now, and out of curiosity I thought I would try some vocal lessons…
Ofelia helped me a lot with singing!
From vocal exercises, warmups and the right breathing technique and helping with finding the right pitch and harmonies.
So now every time my band plays a gig, I have so much more confidence and feel a lot better with my abilities.
Phil Nemeth, vocalist/songwriter – Caught Jester
We are what would be considered a mature age couple who have never reached their aim of becoming rock’n’roll stars, in fact I didn’t even think I could sing until encouraged by my wife to get some singing lessons.
After three half-hour lessons there is already a significant improvement albeit too late for rock stardom.
I had been considering on-line lessons (too embarrassed to be heard publicly!), but am glad that I did not proceed with these, now realising the importance of on the spot education and direction.
The lessons are semi-structured, largely driven by the direction the student wants to take. In the short-term, we wanted to learn how to sing, not become expert in music theory, and the way Ofelia structures the lessons suits our needs.
Her professional knowledge and educational skills are well complemented by her personal qualities, with a style that is very positive and encouraging.
There is a major focus on reinforcing good practices, while gently stretching the student with new skills and techniques, all the time ensuring proper care of the voice.
Her studio is very well equipped, with a range of quality equipment to both enhance the lessons and produce educational materials for the student to take home e.g. mp3 files of the lessons.
We would not hesitate to recommend Ofelia to any aspiring singer, irrespective of age or experience.
