When I started having vocal sessions with Kate Hollands at Pro Voice Studios I was embarking on my acting career in theatre. Even though I had done several professional acting jobs, I did not have much confidence in my vocal ability. I started having vocal sessions with Kate because I wanted to be able to sing any song I was given in a job with ease and grow my technical singing ability. This would allow me to broaden my scope of acting work and I even dreamt of being in a musical one day. After a year of vocal training with Kate I landed the lead role in the smash hit musical ‘Dreamboats and Petticoats’. I received critical acclaim for my vocal work and went on to play the lead in two of Bill Kenwright’s musicals, ‘Save The Last Dance For Me’ and ‘Dreamboats and Miniskirts’.
My voice has strengthened in all areas so I can now smoothly cover my range with ease and without breaks. I gained a deep understanding of my voice and how to sing to consistently and move smoothly and from low to high in one, solidly. My schedule is demanding, with eight shows a week on a UK tour so I keep up with my lessons with Kate on Skype every week. This allows me to stay healthy vocally, avoid any bad habits developing whilst still building and strengthening my voice. I am now singing challenging material that I never dreamt I’d ever be able to do.
I love my singing lessons and would highly recommend Kate to anyone wanting to develop their singing ability in any way. The techniques Kate teaches are fantastic and has worked better than any other style of training I have ever tried.
Here are some reviews I have received since I’ve been with Kate:
The Stage – “Liz Carter does excellent work as a wholesome, sweet voiced but strong Wendy who sings beautifully”
The Chronicle “Her vocals were the strongest and of the highest quality”
The Northern Echo – “a sweet, angelic-voiced Elizabeth Carter”
