Thank you very much for your HAPS workshop this weekend. It was very informative and enjoyable. I am sure that all the evaluations were excellent. You set a wonderful environment where all of us felt encouraged to try new things with our voice and stretch ourselves as speakers and presenters. Many thanks for the experience.

Rachael was outstanding yesterday during her performance!! Vocally excellent and expression, use of the stage and relationship with the audience was excellent. Congratulations – great teaching.
"Working with Elisa and her HAPS programs taught me about the nature of the voice, especially the mechanics of the voice box. She helped me understand aspects of my voice that I can change in order to achieve the speaking sound I want." - Dave | Actor, The Warehouse Workshop
