“I kind of knew what to expect when I went to see Mo Millar, ‘cause I know at least 5 singers she’s worked with. She has one hell of a reputation in the business. What I immediately liked about her is that she asked me what I was looking for, so my first session with her was completely tailor-made, hands-on and hyper efficient. Oh happiness!”

“After a series of unsuccessful lessons elsewhere I ran into a real professional: Mo Millar ! And everything changed. Mo is a fabulous coach who, among other issues, introduced me to the lifestyle particularities of professional singing. She also provides precious guidance with regard to live performance, mic technique, monitoring, artistic interpretation and so on, and all this without ever feeling judged or pushed in a direction that you don’t want.”
“I was very fortunate to play with the great singer and voice expert Mo Millar. She has an incredible voice, great power and I was totally blown away the first time I heard her on stage. Mo has this professionalism that you will only find in people who have really specialized in their field, and you instantly feel that Mo has a huge capacity concerning all aspects of singing!”
