"Gisela is a fantastic tutor, coach and accompanist and was an extremely supportive and inspiring guide when I worked with her. My first contact with her was to seek someone to guide me through my ABRSM vocal exams. Gisela helped me study my repertoire, record my singing, break it down and understand how to analyse it. To have her with me on the day of the exams was very instrumental to passing as she was a very calm support." David Padua
