Issie Hart knows more about voice than any voice teacher I’ve had. Issie is able to answer questions no-one else could. Issie is helping me overcome bad techniques learned from previous teachers, and to take my voice to the next level. Issie is very generous with their knowledge and expertise. I’ve learned so much, both theoretically and practically.


Of the numerous voice teachers I’ve had, Issie is by far the best and I cannot recommend them highly enough.


Jo – Voice Student


Issie has helped me grow my confidence and skills exponentially, and has helped me develop not only my singing but my overall abilities as an artist and performer.


I have gained so much from working with Issie, I wouldn't be half the performer I am today.


Erinn – Voice Student and Creative Mentoring


Before coming to Issie, I sang but always would have a sore throat afterwards. I thought I was singing too loud but didn't know how to change it. Issie taught me a lot about my voice and some great vocal technique. I have seen a dramatic change in my vocal health and confidence in how I sing. They were so precise and gave some fantastic notes for ongoing training of my voice.


Issie is such a brilliant mentor when constructing a show. They can take your wildest ideas and help shape them to something you will be excited to perform. I didn't know where to start when I was looking to write a show, Issie gave me some much-needed direction and structure! They were constructively supportive and put things into perspective for me.
