MELANIE HAWKINS - (Rock of Ages, Wicked, King Kong, Strictly Ballroom, Singing in the Rain)
Sal is full of great ideas for songs to suit your voice and then to assist you with story telling and acting choices...especially to prepare for performances or auditions. With so much experience in the industry Sally is the perfect teacher to receive advice from. I am so thankful for how she has helped me.
KAT HOYOS - (Here Come the Habibs, Jersey Boys, Hairspray)
I highly recommend her as she listens to YOU, lets YOU sing and with her beautiful bubbly personality its impossible to feel you weren't making progress from week to week. its a hardworking but FUN lesson.
ELLEN SUTTON - (Dreamlover, The Rocky Horror Show, Wicked, Rock of Ages)
Without Sally Bourne i most certainly wouldn’t have gotten my first job with Rock
of Ages. She is a fabulous teacher and friend, she taught me about singing, the audition process and inspired me to persevere when times got tough. i owe much to the lovely Sally Bourne.
