'Jo Anne came into our school to give an afternoon workshop. This was a huge success, with Joanne encouraging full participation from all our students. Indeed, so successful and productive was the drama input, we have decided to expand our courses, and working in collaboration with Joanne, will run several more drama programmes. We feel the benefits in confidence; self belief and fluency are immense.'
Mrs J Pilkington, Principal Harven School of English, Woking

'When I first started with Jo Anne, I had little knowledge of Drama. She gave me direction, and understanding. Jo Anne makes learning enjoyable and easy, her teaching methods are creative and practical.
Miss S of Woking (private pupil)
