As a teacher, sometimes it’s simpler to start with what your students think.
Here’s singer and actress Jessie Buckley, on working with Joe:
“Joe Thompson is a unique and special musician who brings a magic and story to every piece he plays. As a singer I have felt like I could fly when I sing with him. He has a way of getting right into the heart of the song, drawing out every emotional tug that makes those listening escape from their world and lose themselves in the magic. I have never met anyone like Joe and he’s simply just the best!” Jessie Buckley
Most of Joe’s experience working with singers has happened spontaneously but he has also worked closely with some great singers advising on repertoire and arranging numbers to bring out the best in the singer. Because of Joe’s classical music background, he has worked with opera singers (most recently at St James’s palace) as well as jazz singers and musical theatre specialists. As in his piano coaching, his speciality is classical to jazz cross-over.
Some of the incredible singers Joe’s worked with include Jessie Buckley, Alexandra Burke, Cassidy Janson, Summer Strallen, Lizzie Deane, and opera singers Angel Blue and Lise Lindstrom.
