Verity Bramson - soprano
Verity Bramson is a freelance soprano and singing teacher in demand in London and the South East. With a special interest in singing voice rehabilitation, her teaching has a strong technical basis and aims to dispel many of the common myths surrounding vocal technique. Her natural empathy and ability to draw upon her pupils’ personal interests aims to to instil a lifelong love of singing beyond the teaching room.
