- Levels Taught:
Sounding good when you sing is not the only important part to a long singing career. To be able to do what you love throughout your life it is important to sing in a healthy way also. To be able to sing when you are healthy and rested is easy to some people however singing when you are tired, sick, stressed, fatigued or you have just stained your voice is another matter. Good vocal technique gives you the tools to sing in whatever physical shape your body is in. If you have vocal problems such as soft or hard nodules, pre or post surgery or other vocal health problems with your vocal cords vocal folds or your vocal mechanism i have worked with laryngologists and speech therapists to help fix these vocal issues.

I Very optimistic thatI’m going to be able to reach my goals and be able to sing with in many ranges and blend my voice when necessary. I’m enjoying the lessons immensely
Exciting and fun lesson with Coren can wait my next one..
LOVE HER!! JUST AN AMAZING TEACHER AND PERSON IN GENERAL!!
My daughter had a great first lesson. She could already tell a difference and had all her nerves put at ease with Coren's friendly and engaging demeanor.
Excellent first lesson. Coren was really paying attention to my individual needs, which includes vocal therapy and we did lots of great, helpful exercises. I loved how well Coren explained every aspect of it and made everything seem easy. She was very encouraging. A great, fun first lesson. I look forward to many more!+ Read More
Coren is patient and knowledgeable. She explained the mechanics of my voice in a way I could easily grasp. Looking forward to many more lessons.
I have only had one lesson and I can tell she knows what she is doing. I am very comfortable with her.
There was a clear explanation of what we were going to work and it was what I was looking for.
Coren is a class act very good vocal coach
Coren, is amazing, really made me understand how to write music and start things off. Great teacher.
Coren is a wonderful singing instructor she makes it interesting and keeps you engaged.
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.+ Read More
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!!!+ Read More
First lesson went well. Too soon to judge.
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!+ Read More
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.
If there were 6 stars I would've checked them all. I've been studying with Coren on and off since 2000. She has molded my voice twice in my still short life and Ren has helped me work through psychological blocks that kept me from realizing we are our own obstacles to overcome.
The first time I studied with them it was as a young, impatient, and ignorant singer. They both would of course tell you that I was bright, eager, and new. This is the first important thing I'd like to share with you about Ren and Coren; they base training off a complete appreciation for the power of thought. Learning how to do the work with positive and intentional effort changes the impact the practice has on us. You'll see just as I did when you begin to adopt a different inner language. This way of working has positively affected many other areas of my life. With them it's easy, they REALLY know how to train so if you can just show up they can teach you how to put in the work to take you where you want to go.
Most recently after a stroboscopic test showed that night-fluxing had caused such damage to my instrument and the tissue that surrounded that I could barely speak, much less sing I began studying with Coren for the second time. Months of medication, speech therapy, new diet, doctors, and silence had offered little improvement and when I finally called Coren I'd reached my end, fighting tears to even speak the words to describe my situation. She received me with open arms, offering the comfort only a great teacher can give; she listened, she paused, and then she said calmly "It's okay. We'll fix it". Coren helped me to retrain my instrument, my brain and my vocabulary. Ren addressed the psychology of it all, helping me refocus and ultimately regain the confidence needed to overcome the fear and doubts I was then battling. Together they helped me discover the greatness and fearlessness I had possessed all along.
Ren and Coren's abilities go far beyond your standard talent coaching. They help their students understand how and why we train, allowing US to adopt the necessary skill set and principles needed to grow. They are not only some of the best coaches in Las Vegas, but I believe some of the best in their fields altogether. In a sense they are parents to hundreds of voices and storytellers across the nation, and I am eternally grateful to be one of them. If given the opportunity to study with them, do not pass, anyone who has studied with them will tell you the same.
Coren has been teaching my daughter going on 8 years now. Eryn started when she was 7 with Mrs Coren. She taught her "Proper" vocal technique to assure she would have longevity with her vocal career. Coren is amazing with children it's amazing how she relates on their level, motivating and empowering them at the same time. I've seen her work with adults as well, from people who were "Were" terrified to sing in public to professionals in the entertainment industry. No matter what level you are, Coren is the teacher for you!! Just Saying ....+ Read More
Our daughter has been taking lessons from Coren since the age of 7yrs old, and she is still taking lessons from her. Coren is patient, kind and loving to all her students, she takes the time to explain what they are doing right and wrong with their vocal lessons, and she doesnt rush them. She is overall an amazing person to learn from :)+ Read More
