'Didem is an engaged, patient, positive, and last, but not least, very effective teacher. My son started to love playing and he’s even practising by himself with well-chosen lessons and tasks. I can wholeheartedly recommend her as a teacher.'
'I started taking weekly singing lessons with Didem about 1.5 years ago. I had done taken singing lessons for a number of years prior, so I wasn’t a complete beginner, but still lacking in confidence in performing, as well as needing help to improve my technique. Didem has been a wonderful coach and I’m feeling much more confident as a singer now. She provides a good balance between technique work and practising songs, giving good inputs on performance aspects. She has further adapted exercises to focus on areas that I need to work on. Didem is very personable and friendly, but also strict enough during lessons to encourage improvement.'
'I started taking singing lessons from Didem about 5 months ago and I can clearly feel that not only has my breathing improved, but my vocal range has also increased, along with my confidence. I am very grateful for the help Didem has given me in improving my technique and look forward to continuing to work with her.'
