Alex was an awesome voice coach! I have been wanting to take lessons for sooo long now but have been too nervous and she made the experience totally comfortable. She gave me countless exercises to practice at home, and I found my voice getting better after just a few weeks. I couldn't believe it! Thanks so much for being awesome, Alex.
