is a gifted performer and teacher. Having worked along-side Gina as a
soloist in various concerts, recitals and productions of opera and music
theatre works, I can highly recommend her as a performer who not only
possesses a beautiful soprano instrument, but one who always prepares
her work diligently and delivers it with technical precision and a
meaningful communication of the text. As a voice teacher, Gina finds a
way of balancing an impartation knowledge and an understanding of solid
vocal technique, with warmth and fun. Her students consistently
demonstrate a passion for singing and a great grounding in musicality,
vocal technique and performance practice..."

"I have just finished singing with Gina and
I cannot recommend her highly enough. Never once did she make me feel
awkward or push me to a point that I was not comfortable with. She
instills courage in you and is always willing to meet the needs that you
have as well. I have learnt so much and grown so much more than I could
have imagined. She is a fantastic teacher and a lovely person."

"I have only just started singing with
Gina, but am already 100% comfortable :) I've never been someone with
overflowing confidence, especially when singing in front of people, so
it's a real credit to Gina and her teaching style. She's a fantastic
teacher and an absolutely lovely lady, I couldn't give a higher
“It is with great please that I write this recommendation for Gina
Rose. I have known Gina personally for a number of years, having
performed on stage with her. I respect Gina as a performer, but more
importantly as a singing teacher. I have been a musical theatre teacher
in the past, and when asked by parents to recommend a private singing
teacher, my first recommendation has always been Gina. I know that Gina
is a very positive and encouraging teacher who is able to make
confident, well trained singers out of her students. I highly recommend
Gina as a singing teacher and am envious of her future students who can
experience her contagious passion and love of singing first hand.”

"Gina is an absolute pleasure to work with. I enjoy my lessons immensely; not just for the quality of the tuition, but also for that rare bit of 'time out' for myself that leaves me learning on my personal hobby and skill..."
singing captured a range of moods, from the cheerful texture of Bach's
Coffee aria from Cantata BWV 221 to the sense of anguish evident in the
same composer's Seufzer, Thränen, Kummer, Noth from Cantata BWV 21..."
