About Teresa

I grew up performing and singing. My family loved music and the arts and we went to the theater, ballet and symphony all the time in Houston Texas. My mother used to play music to get me to sleep when I was very young. She played opera by the famous Italian tenor Caruso and symphonic music by the French Impressionist composer Debussy. As a teenager I played the guitar and sang folk and pop songs with my friends. When I became an adult my interest turned back to classical music and opera as I had heard as a toddler. Eventually I found myself on stage singing opera in New York City and classical chamber music at Tanglewood in the Berkshires. I began teaching voice while I was getting a Bachelor's Degree in Music at the University of Texas. When I came to New York City I opened the Vocal

Chris A. Austin, TX

I didn't grow up with classical music as a kid, for the most part I listened to rock and pop music until high school when I began competing in the classical genre. It easy to find vague information on how to sound classical, but tangible tools are much harder to find, which is why I highly recommend taking voice lessons to learn classical technique and style. Being part of one of the top five collegiate choirs in the nation was the result of many, many hours listening, practicing, taking voice lessons and Alexander Technique lessons. It is amazing how much goes into learning a new genre, particularly one with centuries of history behind it! It is a common misconception that if you learn classical singing, then that gives a basic starting point to learn any other genre.This is NOT true. Classical singing, particularly the louder and darker you sound, has it's own set of special technical challenges that you don't necessarily run into in other genres. For my students that don't have a ...

About Chris

I hold my B.A in Voice from the University of North Texas. I was a member of UNT’s A Capella Choir, ranked among the top five undergraduate choirs in the nation. I have worked with a range of vocal teachers from many backgrounds, from a metropolitan opera star to voice science academics to professional singer-songwriters. This breadth of experience and research over the last 11 years has enabled me to refine the art of teaching someone how to sing so that it is effective and feels good for the singer to do, no matter where they start. For me, seeing the joy on a student’s face when they are able to stay in tune for the first time, or hearing their excitement on the phone when they tell me they've won a $20,0000 college vocal scholarship, makes it easy for me to say that I really love ...

My daughter has been taking voice lessons for a few years and is fairly advanced in her ability and technique. We were crushed when her voice teacher (a sought after University vocal Director) moved out of state, and we found ourselves in the market for a new teacher. We were beyond pleased to find Chris as her new vocal coach. He has helped my daughter fine-tune her vocal tone quality, expand her musicality, and overall take her singing ability to a new level. His professionalism is a breath of fresh air; he's always on time and has a fantastic demeanor. We would highly recommend!

I've really enjoyed taking singing lessons from Chris. He's got very cheerful personality and excellent teaching qualities. Coming from no Voice training what so ever, I can carry on a song without hesitation. I totally recommend Chris as a professional Voice instructor without any doubt! Thank you, Chris!

Chris is amazing with my daughter. She has been taking lessons with Chris for past 6 months and her singing technique has improved exponentially. He lets her pick the songs and works at her pace. He is very adjusting of any schedule change (even if it is last minute). My daughter always looks forward to her singing lesson with Chris.

Chris is patient, well rounded in different genre's of music, fun to work with, and an experienced professional. I would highly recommend him.

About Jameson

If you are a seasoned performer, I will guide you in developing agility, musicality, range, dynamics, and phrase shape. If you are a first-time vocal student, I will provide an engaging, supportive environment to find your voice. My instruction is based on professionalism, experience and range from more than 25 years of singing and 13 years of teaching.

Jameson has been patient with me in the few lessons I've had with him so far.
He's very knowledgeable and understanding, so I felt no need to be ashamed when I make mistakes or sometimes sound funny. It helps that he's friendly and approachable.

The lessons are purposeful and insightful. I like how he allows me to ask questions and he helps me understand mechanics that I've never learned before.

I've sung in a few church choirs for many years on and off without any vocal training. I've only ever sung for just the love of singing, so I've collected some bad habits that were never addressed until now. It didn't take long for him to develop a gameplan for me and figure out how he's gonna get me right on track.

Today he helped me "find my voice". It was a Eureka moment of sorts I won't soon forget. There's still work to be done, but surely I will
continue with my lessons with him because I'd like to see where he can help me take my voice.

Definitely top-notch instruction from a pro here, so for me, it's money well-spent.

Jameson's knowledge and instruction go well beyond the physical mechanics of singing. His lessons bring you to the mental approach to singing and performing. He somehow makes the abstract tangible, at least in so far as it can be applied in a real way. Lastly, I don't think I ever had a lesson where we did not share some laughter.

I worked with Jameson for a year and a half, and it transformed singing from a source of self-doubt into something I do with confidence and joy. The Alexander technique works wonders for really being able to understand how to use every part of your body to find the best sound. Lessons were always comfortable, fun, and exciting as I learned new ways to feel comfortable throughout my entire range. I seriously envy his Texan students!

Lindsey is a very capable teacher who is a pleasure to work with.

Lindsey has an excellent manner of communicating her teaching method and applying it effectively. I really appreciate her level of patience with me and how open she is to experiment with different exercises and songs as well as always keeping in mind the goals I have for the lessons (extended vocal range and learning how to "belt out a song"). I am very pleased with having her as my voice instructor and would definitely recommend her to anyone hoping to increase their singing capabilities.
