Georgina Hill-Brown: Helping people build confidence and seeing them succeed.
WikiExpert: What is the most challenging part of teaching singing? And how do overcome this?
Georgina Hill-Brown: The most challenging part is how much it takes out of you. Teaching 1-2-1 is intense as you feel connected to who you are teaching and take on their feelings, plus I adapt my teaching style to whoever I am teaching.
WikiExpert: What do you enjoy most about your career?
Georgina Hill-Brown: I just love making videos and getting positive responses.
WikiExpert: Please tell us a little about how people can benefit from online singing lessons?
Georgina Hill-Brown: To have someone understand your individual voice, and what you want to achieve and develop the voice.
WikiExpert: I see that you also work as a Vocal Coach and you have worked with many celebrities including Natasha Hamilton of Atomic Kitten, which is great! Can you tell us a little about this? And how do you go about helping the people you coach?
Georgina Hill-Brown: I worked on a tv show called just the two of us, and it was my job to help prepare the singers for the show. I assess what they want to achieve and go from there.

WikiExpert: Among everything else, you have also worked as a judge in many competitions. We'd really love to know about how it felt being a judge, what challenges did you face? And how did you judge the competitors? Were there certain factors that you looked for etc?
Georgina Hill-Brown: I have judged hundreds of competitions and I take in lots of different factors. Professionalism, skill, choice of song, style. I really enjoyed being a judge as it was a way of helping others understand how they could improve. I worked with Birdy and GEorge Samson amongst others who have gone on to do great things. I’d say the only challenging factors would have been to be as unbiased as possible.
