"Gina 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 recommendation :)"

“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..."


"Bashford's 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..."

 "Gina Bashford's mastery of the various shadings of the Baroque repertoire were confirmed, excelling in the selected pieces...."

"Under Bashford's clear, helpful direction, the singers responded with strong, dynamic ranges, well controlled pitch and good attention to diction."
