"Anna Lisa had helped me tremendously through out the time she was my teacher. She was always able to accommodate with my schedule and helped me bring out
the best in me, not only with my voice but with my fear of preforming in front of people. She always knew the right ways to explain techniques and bring out the best in my voice. I couldn't have asked for a better teacher."

"Ms. Lorna is a very good teacher overall.
Ms. Lorna is a very good teacher. She is a nice, great, professional, and relatable teacher. She brings out ski
lls in students who students themselves didn't know they had. Since I started taking lessons with her she has taught me a lot, she has brought out skills that i didn't know i could do with my voice, and it's very easy to learn with. I have learned and am still learning a lot from her.Thank you Ms. Lorna for being such a great teacher.
Love, Valerie :)"

"I feel Lisa has knowledge of vocal nuances that could only come from a life devoted to music and song.+"
Milwaukee, WI teacher:
Review by Tammy
"Denise quickly nailed problems with my technique and did an excellent job teaching me how to improve my technique. She was honest about both the good and
bad points about my singing which I really appreciated. Getting a compliment from Denise feels awesome because you know she really knows her art (singing). She was the first vocal coach ever to label my style of singing, which I didn't know. Every minute of my lesson was useful and productive. I highly recommend Denise, no matter what level you are at."

"I learned more in 2 years than all of my years in singing
I started taking voice lessons with Kevin when I was a Junior in college. I had been seeing a v
oice teacher in NYC who had worked for years with many professional singers on Broadway. So, I wasn't sure what to expect when I started working with a grad student from the school of music (which mostly focuses on classical voice). I wanted to learn about classical voice but, I mostly wanted to continue working on musical theatre songs. So, I wasn't sure how much I could learn from a grad student who was young and learning about voice himself.
Kevin exceeded my expectations. On my first day with Kevin, I was nervous because all of my voice teachers in the past had been strict and would even occasionally yell at me. So, I could never fully be comfortable at a voice lesson because I had always been afraid to make mistakes. Kevin puts you at ease right away with his friendly and bubbly demeanor. He encourages you to give it your all and applauds mistakes and cracks because it means you are trying and getting to a new place in your voice that you're not used to. Kevin wanted to work on what I wanted to work on, however, he was also able to teach me things I had never been taught before with my old teacher like newer concepts and simply how to sing with a richer voice. Kevin was able to help me with all kinds of singing as he is trained in musical theatre, classical, and opera.
I knew I could also count on Kevin because of how honest he would be with me. He would tell me his honest thoughts about my work and any shows he came to see me in. I valued Kevin's opinion because he was ALWAYS straightforward with me.
Not only was Kevin a great teacher but, he was SO supportive of me. Kevin came to my rehearsals and performances to give me tips on how I could improve my performance and coached me on characterization singing. He even agreed to meet with me outside of our normal lessons if I ever needed help with an audition piece.
I could honestly go on and on about how wonderful Kevin was and I am so sad that I can no longer have him as my voice teacher due to distance. However, the things Kevin has taught me will always stay with me and I am sure I will use everything he has taught me for years to come.
I HIGHLY recommend Kevin R. as a voice teacher. No matter what kind of singer you want to be or how experienced or trained you are Kevin will meet your personal needs to help you reach your goals. He will challenge you, motivate you, and leave you feeling proud of what you accomplished. I learned more in the two years I worked with Kevin than I did in all of my years of singing. So if you are looking for a high quality, honest, and supportive voice teacher Kevin R. is perfect for you!"

Review by Nicolas
I've been taking lessons with Sophia for about 2 years now and I have nothing but great things to say about her. I was a little hesitant abou
t taking voice lessons with a woman but I was certainly wrong. I can't believe how much my technique has improved every time I listen to old lessons I recorded on my phone. I would totally recommend her for all levels of singers."

Cathy's a refreshingly wonderful teacher; love her!"

Review by Megan
"Kait the BEST vocal instructor ever! Supportive, kind, professional, intelligent, and creative, she has helped me in so many ways as a singer and performe
r. I've gained an incredible amount of experience in just a few months with a show, a CD from the performance, and two recordings under my belt. I wish I had lessons with her every day... I enjoy them so, SO much! I was lead to her studio by a close friend who had tried three instructors previously, and finally discovered Kait's incredible talent. She is the cream of the crop in the Salt Lake area and far beyond, I'm sure."
