About Brandon S.

My students are guided along a comprehensive artist development experience that consists of voice development, stage presence, songwriting and finishing school.

I've been a songwriter/vocal producer for 20 years having written songs for The Backstreet Boys, Trey Songz and more. I've studied the art of "voice" for 15 years having trained under some of the most prominent voice teachers in the country.

My best of both worlds background led me to construct the "5 Phase Singing Method" that has been a huge hit with all my clientele.

Notable students include recording artist Neisha Neshae, recording artist Labritney, recording artist Shana Wilson, Diamond White, a top 5 finalist on X Factor, Jibreel Mawry from Motown the Musical, and the 2016 Ford Fireworks Super Singer winner, Brianna Seaborn.

Brandon has done an amazing job turning my awful singing into something respectable. He has a sharp ear for voice issues and plenty of drills and tips for bringing out your best voice. I strongly recommend his coaching.

I love the experience and the feel. I have already learned so much with just 3 lessons! I definitely recommend to anyone who truly wants to be better and improve themselves as an artist/vocalist.

I really enjoy coming to vocal class. It is a fun & positive environment. Mr. Smith is a great vocal coach. He's comical but at the same time he means business, with the goal & passion of helping his students become the best that they can be.

"I will definitely say that my experience working with Brandon was outstanding! I had such a good flow and vibe in the atmosphere the studio session. He was able to listen to my voice and song as a whole and immediately contribute tremendous harmony arrangements that automatically coincide with my overall musical style. He is very patient as a person in general and an engineer during his work duties. He brings a overall good vocal energy along with him during sessions. I would give my experience beyond a 5 star!!" - Darnesha R.
