AFD Vocal & Performance Coaching

Congratulations to Layla on her well-deserved win at the Northumberland Star Live Final claiming the £250 prize. It’s always great to see my students excelling and achieving their goals! Layla has been working so hard on her vocal technique and performance leading up to the competition and I am incredibly proud of her!

However, Layla wasn’t the only AFD student to shine at the competition. The other students who made it through to the final also put on an exceptional show, showcasing their musical abilities and impressing the judges. It’s clear that these students have a bright future ahead of them in the music industry, and I couldn’t be prouder.

AFD Vocal & Performance Coaching is dedicated to helping students grow and develop as performers and vocalists. I believe in nurturing their creativity and providing them with the tools they need to succeed as artists. Competitions like Northumberland Star are a great way for our students to showcase their talent and gain valuable experience in performing focussing solely on ability, technique and performance.

A big round of applause also goes to the other  successful students; Kate Gowan, Olivia Rose Sexton, Jessica Yiting Deng and Addie McIntyre who made it through to the live final after getting through the first round. It’s clear that everyone put in a lot of hard work and dedication to get to this point, and they should all be proud of their achievements.

The Northumberland Star Live Final was held in aid of HospiceCare North Northumberland, a charity that provides specialist palliative care to people with life-limiting illnesses and support to their families. We are proud to have been a part of this event and to support such a worthy cause.


I know that Layla and all the other students will take this win as motivation to keep pushing themselves and pursuing their dreams.

Once again, congratulations to Layla and all the students who participated in the Northumberland Star Live Final. You are all superstars in your own right, and I can’t wait to see where your musical journeys take you next.
