I am receiving a lot of 'bounced back' weekly newsletters.  If you have put your names forward for inclusion in the weekly email list and are not actually receiving them please can you get in touch with me (for the attention of Jan re weekly letters)  on marketing @ucheldre.org.  I can then try to track down the reason for the bounce back.  Thank you for your patience in this matter.

Now based in North Wales, she arranges short intensive courses of vocal rehabilitation for individuals with vocal problems of all types and also gives short courses for young singing teachers.We are very pleased to host her workshops here at Ucheldre.
