“What an amazing diversity of music on the recording! I do thank you for including music of mine. Actually, I’m not sure which of the realizations I like best. What you have done with the Morning Song is truly special. This is probably my favourite.”

“Dean Frenkel is a most engaging speaker. He immediately captures the attention of Year 11 students who believe that public speaking is either dreary or a task to be avoided. In a session held at our school, his informal manner in the classroom meant that the students responded very quickly to his ideas, and they listened most attentively to his discussion of the different elements of speech. They allowed themselves to become easily drawn into games and voice exercises with Dean’s encouragement. His overtone singing was a complete novelty and the students were in awe to realise that such a skill exists.”

"I have noticed how many chest infections I have saved myself by doing Dean’s Wellness Breathing program. I haven't had generalised chesty infections like I used to have. (I used to have two a year)"

“Thank you very much for all the effort that you put into the last full week. It was a great privilege to learn from you. You have a real gift for encouraging nervous people. Your voice exercises really opened my lungs and also caused a shift in me, spiritually. I knew that I had to let go of something but I was struggling with the release.”

“I have known Dean Frenkel for the past 12 years. I first met him as a throat singer. I marvelled, not only at Dean's gift and skill, but his ability to explain his art to a broad - and appreciative ABC radio audience in Adelaide. Over the years, I have come to realise Dean has many more strings to his bow: speech analyst, vocal expert, singing teacher and author of "Evolution of Speech."

"Dean has a way of tackling the topic of voices in a way that is not only constructive and articulate, but also entertaining."

"Our listeners respond very well to Dean's discussion of speech - be it by famous politicians, sporting heroes or film stars."

"Most importantly, I have always found Dean to be a man of integrity, flexibility and passion - eager to share his considerable knowledge and insight with as many people as possible. His range of contacts in many fields is as wide as it is impressive."

"In short, I have no hesitation in recommending him for any reasonable position in teaching or in performance.”
