I'm so grateful that I found this amazing teacher. I was looking for a teacher who could teach me ways to improve. In the past I felt like I was at a block. If you feel there's more potential in your voice. I guarantee she will help you reach it. I never have felt this excited for the next lesson to learn more especially since I hear improvements in my voice each week. I'm technical so I like to know what's going on in the inside. She has answers to all my questions. I'm comfortable with her, she's encouraging, and a great person.

Coren is amazing! I absolutely love her! She's not only a great singing coach but also an amazing person all together. She makes me feel so comfortable and more and more excited every singing lesson I have with her. She is great to talk to and I almost feel I can go to her for anything because she shows she cares about her students. She's there when you need her and is always reassuring me that I'm doing great and getting better. I really notice improvement in myself as well. She has a great way of applying the things I need to know about singing into my actual life. It's so refreshing to meet someone who only wants to see you succeed and not tear you down.. especially in vegas! ha! thx for everything Coren and look forward to more lessons!!!

Coren is not only an amazing vocal coach, shes an amazing human being. I started with Coren as a very timid, cautious singer and now I perform all over Las Vegas and I love what I do! I was afraid that my voice could not improve and that I would never have the power and freedom in my voice that i've always wanted but with some patience and hard work Coren got me there! no matter what type of learner you are, Coren has a technique that will work for you. The first time I sat in on my boyfriend's lesson and I heard how much he had improved I was blown away and I knew I wanted to take lessons. Coren teaches you that everyone can sing and its just a matter of training the muscles you need to do it! For me, thinking about it that way made it a lot less intimidating. She teaches everyone from the kiddos and beginners (she loves kids and they love her!) to the grown ups and pros! No matter how hard i've been on myself coren has never given up on me and I can now say I am not afraid to dream because I know it is possible! I've been with Coren for almost 5 years and for as long as i'm singing she'll be where I stay! If you're serious about singing, Coren will get you wherever you want to go! Thank you for everything Coren!

I was 16 years old when I first started with Coren, She has helped me to get an amazing sound out of my voice! I sang every thing in my Nostrils! and my Adam's apple up in my Brain! I started out singing with my church choir, then my church band. My music director said I Should Take some lessons. He gave me Corens number and I set up a lesson for the following Thursday.

I got to the lesson and I was shaking. I've always been an Actor and I've always had this mental block about my voice. But After talking to her, Within the first 5 minutes she had already had me laughing and relaxing in my chair. She not only showed me how to use my vocals, she explained (In Detail) why and what was making my voice tighten up in the first place. She understood everything that my vocal cords were doing.

I would certainly say that Coren goes the extra mile when it comes to training the voice. And she has one of the biggest hearts on this planet! There were many lessons I had with her where I would Just be in tears because I had a mental block about my voice. But Coren would not let me stay there. She Believed in me and she got me out of my mental patterns.

I owe a lot to this women and I couldn't be more Grateful that I have the opportunity to study under her!

Coren is the best singing teaching in Las Vegas. She taught me to sing from scratch. I knew nothing about singing before I started and she showed me the way.
Coren has help me develop a beautiful singing voice that I'm am excited to share the world every chance I get. When I became discouraged she helped give me the confidence I needed. Coren Will always say its not hard, its new, and she gently pushes you in the direction you need to go. If you're serious about learning to sing; go see Coren and she will train your voice into perfection.
