Samling has been of absolute importance to my career. If it wasn’t for Samling, I would have missed the chance to learn from some of the greatest coaches and teachers working today. Being part of the Samling family has always given me great pride, and the support it gives to young students in the UK and abroad is immeasurable. As a singer, to be able to focus on both opera and song in such a supportive environment is an absolute blessing.
