Hi, my name is Tony. I am a 55 year old man and I have some things to say about Songlines Music Studio. I started vocal coaching with Songlines after many years of neglecting my singing voice. Learning music at Songlines has given me the confidence to express my deep love of music, through public performances, eisteddfods, and exams. Being with the studio has provided me with consistency and purpose through some massive life challenges. I have also recently begun learning to play the piano, to use in my job as an early childhood teacher, proving that you can teach an old dog new tricks. I would wholeheartedly recommend Songlines Music Studio to anyone of any age or gender, who wants to improve their singing, musical knowledge and boost their confidence in performing.

Tony Pike, Taree Local.
