"Petah mentors my daughter Juliette. Without Petah’s dedication and support would not have achieved such wonderful results, not only in her singing abilities but also in her confidence and her vision on where she would like to take her singing in the future. It is with the encouragement from Petah that Juliette continues to learn German as a language and has recently taken on theatre work, all to continue her growth in her performing arts, especially in Opera."
- Virginia, Parent of student in Petah Chapman's mentorship programme.
"Petah is a musician of outstanding ability with an extraordinary understanding of musical style and context. As a teacher she has the ability to draw on the students strengths and improve technique and musicality seamlessly in a way that is inspiring and lasting. I highly recommend Petah as a coach; her combined performance experience and dedication as a teacher is uniquely rare"
