    / 5 Alexander Balerdi for Job #241629 Helena Rubenstein Louise is what I would regard as the consummate professional, very willing to work to get it right, and also gets it right straight away in most cases! A kind person with a vast range and a real joy to work with, Louise went above and beyond to deliver exactly what I was looking for. I recommend her highly, she is very talented and understands the nuances of tone, pitch and intonation without needing direction to make adjustments to this to suit the mood of the performance, including different options and adjustments. I sincerely hope we will be working together again soon as I feel we have barely scratched the surface of her magnificent skills.
