- Beginner, Intermediate, Advanced
I sing professionally in Nashville, and my experience as a stage performer, session singer, and songwriter on music row has provided me with great insight on the demands of the industry. Students can expect to learn about the music industry, as well as a great amount of vocal technique, ear training, basic music theory, and stage performance skills in their lessons. Many of my students choose to incorporate songwriting or basic piano/guitar into their voice lessons, as well.
We also have a home recording studio, and many of my students choose to record their songs after working on their vocals!
My students learn how to best use their voice and improve upon their talents, while gaining confidence in performing!

Brittany has been so sweet and all around amazing and very patient she has been a great first teacher and I’m so glad to have her as my teacher
Was skeptical at first but that was quickly turned around. My daughter absolutely loved Brittany and I could see they hit if off from the beginning. The instructor was polite, friendly, very encouraging, and motivating. I was thinking this would be a short term deal for a life experience as a birthday present to my daughter but I see now that I may be in this long term! We're all excited for the next session.+ Read More
Brittany is absolutely fantastic with my 13 year old daughter who has never had any vocal training before. We are five lesson in, and from day one, you could tell Brittany really knows her stuff. We have seen fantastic progress in such a short time. Brittany's knowledge, patience, enthusiasm, and own personal talent shine through. My daughter looks forward to each and every lesson. We were lucky to find Brittany and I highly recommend her.+ Read More

One word - fantastic !!!!!
My daughter is in love with Brittany and I am completely impressed !
I was looking for a teacher who could help me hone in on my songwriting skills, and was so excited when I found Brittany! Not only was she able to help me improve my songwriting, but she helped with my singing in my lessons too! She is definitely the perfect teacher if you are looking to work on both. She also taught me how to use the Nashville Numbers System to chart my songs and be able to communicate well with my band. I take lessons in Brittany's home, which is in a great location and is really nice. I feel very safe there (her complex is gated) and always love going to see her!+ Read More
I've been taking vocal lessons off and on for the past 3 years with different instructors and Brittany is by far the best vocal coach I've ever had. I'll never take lessons from anyone else! She's helped me expand my range (I can now hit notes I never thought I'd be able to hit) and she's taught me how to breathe properly while singing. Brittany is seriously talented and I look forward to my lesson with her every week!+ Read More
Brittany helped me with my singing tremendously! We discussed the use of your chest voice, head voice and how to blend them together to achieve your desired tone. She also taught me how to form the right vowel sounds to match the style, something I had never thought of. I am currently preforming on the road singing background vocals with country music legend Tanya Tucker! Brittany has helped me keep my job!+ Read More
