To Whom It May Concern:


I have been a student of Claude Alexander for two years.  He continues to amaze me with his enthusiasm for music and teaching; I always leave my lesson feeling rejuvenated with a fresher outlook on my approach to singing and method of practice.  He covers all areas of my performance from the theoretical understanding of a song to breath control and stance while performing it.


Musical theory, improvising and ear training are areas I work on a lot with Claude.  This has been greatly beneficial for me as I progress as a performing singer, with very little previous formal training.  He is very adaptable with his teaching methods and is very good at finding the best way to convey information in a way that I can understand, absorb and visualise.  His methods are flexible and interesting, getting the theory across without being overburdening.  He also encourages me to have as much fun as I can while practising at home.


Claude has a vast knowledge and a love of Jazz music with a life long and very interesting musical background.  He has introduced me to some great jazz musicians and songs I may not have been aware of otherwise.  Claude is a brilliant teacher whom I have come to know over the last two years as a very giving and kind-natured individual.  He has been very supportive of me and is very interested in my performances and preparation for gigs.  Claude has even come along to my auditions and gigs, and has given me some very useful, constructive feedback.


Yours faithfully,

Rachel Jenkins
