Testimonial — Simon Hayes

"To whom it may concern,

This is a letter of recommendation for my teacher Mr. Thompson, with whom I have studied singing for the past five years.

I left the Royal Northern College of Music with many vocal problems, disillusionment and with a complete lack of confidence in my prowess as a singer. Soon after Mr. Thompson agreed to take me as a pupil. Within very few lessons Mr. Thompson began to eradicate my problems and instil in me a very sound vocal technique, based on his own experience as a singer and also an intelligent appraisal of my own particular problems.

He has extensive knowledge of music, repertoire and musicianship and can give practical advice on performance again, based on personal experience. His lessons are delivered with an infectious enthusiasm and humour. In my opinion I cannot praise Mr. Thompson too highly as a teacher, musician or man.

I am currently working for Opera de Monte Carlo, on a small parts contract, and have recently successfully auditioned for Opera de Nice for their 1990 season. For the past two years I have sung in Italy in most of their major summer festivals. I can honestly say all this is due to Mr. Thompson's support as a teacher and friend.

Yours sincerely Simon Hayes"
