”I love learning to sing with Faye. I leave the session feeling relaxed, positive and refreshed – however I feel when I arrive. Faye has a very special ability to push me beyond what I think I am capable of without me even realising that I’m doing it. She has helped me develop a confidence in expressing myself that I’ve been able to take into my work as Director of the Ethical Property Foundation and into my passion for performing as a principal dancer with the London School of Samba.” (Jo Taylor, Director, Ethical Property) logo
