GB Professional singer and teacher
A range of repertoire for high and low voices
Too many from list C - slightly limited in choosing A B and C for exam programme.

Gravesend GB vocal coach and performer
Lots of wonderful songs from the ABRSM exam repertoire, with a CD of excellent piano accompaniment.
Unfortunately, almost all the songs are suited for the soprano range, with little or nothing that fits alto voices.
