“I wanted to thank you for everything you organised and taught me...I feel so much more confident and knowledgeable about auditioning and performing now...I have been accepted into the University of Cincinnati - College Conservatory of Music. I am the first Australian accepted into the program. I’m very excited to share all of the awesome techniques you have taught me...Thank you, once again, for everything!"

“Exactly a year after working with Queenie, and coming up with the idea in our sessions, I have just launched my dance company and classes, with the most amazing message. I am so incredibly grateful for all the work she did with me, the support she gave me during our work together and the support she continues to give. Queenie has helped me open up an amazing new path. She helped me work on myself and gave me the push I needed to start dancing and singing again. I will be forever grateful!"
S. Cullen

“I know I've said it before, but your support and mentoring was just SO important to me and I really, really appreciate you being in the world. Thanks for everything you do to encourage and support the people around you - we all love you so much for it!”

“Queenie has the amazing ability to work with you to uncover what is the true essence of your own unique creative expression. Her generosity, expertise and tricks have had such a positive impact on my future direction and plans for what success means to me. Thank you so much Queenie!!”
C. Brown

“Working with Queenie has been an absolute dream. Queenie kept me accountable and supported me through writing my first ever cabaret which has now had a sold out showing and is off to bigger & better things - things that I could only have dreamed of happening, but thanks to Queenie and her coaching they are. She makes the process of creating and producing your own show less scary and breaks down the sessions into less overwhelming chunks. I always left each session with a massive smile on my face and full of inspiration. Thank you, Queenie, your coaching and words of wisdom will stick with me for life!”
S. Carroll
(Sarah’s show Cherry continues to tour throughout Australia & along the way has won a bunch of awards)

I'm now about to take the same play to Adelaide Fringe - then hopefully inspiring and so practical.  It empowered me as an artist and has set me on an exciting journey. THANK YOU!!!”

"Working with Queenie inspired me to completely overhaul my audition mindset, how I was approaching my craft and reawakened my connection with and love for my work. And it made auditioning fun again! Straight off the back of studying with Queenie I was lucky enough to gain entry into the Victorian College of the Arts to further my Music Theatre studies and on graduating toured nationally with Kinky Boots."
