official web - for testimonial from both students and colleagues, and my blog on singing, music etc.”

"For many years I have admired Idit as both a singer and a teacher of singing: she brings to all her musicmaking a lively professionalism and integrity, coupled with the gift of communication which inspires others to aspire to the same high standards. I have witnessed her in action as a teacher and have seen how quickly she can achieve positive results with committed students by pinpointing the specific areas of development relevant to each individual singer – the singers themselves are frequently surprised at the speed of their progress under Idit’s tuition.

I enthusiastically recommend Idit as an exceptional teacher who commands international respect."

Looking for any part-time positions you might know's available: I was born in England, bred in the Turks and Caicos Islands, spent the past year in Mauritius hosting, producing and writing for what became the most listened to show on Rock Mauritius, and now I'm in Liverpool studying audio production with an emphasis on Sound Design/Foley/Illusions; to make a long story short.
It's taken a few weeks to get settled in, but now I'm there or thereabouts, it's high time that I immerse myself in my chosen, soon to be profession, and live theatre looks just the right place to start.
