Free Workshop for Mandarin-Speaking Performers

‘This course has been so great for reminding me not to think ahead too much and to trust my instincts and my cast mates on stage.  Added to this, it has ignited my love of singing again and I looked forward every week to what new hit songs we would all create!

Olly Jackson, Improvers Course participant, 2022
