“My goal in teaching is to help students reach their fullest potential as singers and to build their confidence in the process. I feel it's important to get out of the lessons what you want, so I don't have a set curriculum. I tailor each lesson to the student. Lessons focus on each student as an individual and can include anything from vocal technique and song choice, to audition coaching and recording sessions for ear training.”

· Singing · In home Really knows his stuff, and is great at personalizing the lesson. My rating will only go up I'm sure!
· Vocal Training · In studio Craig Anderson was my first and favorite voice teacher! As a young teen I was shy and insecure, Craig made me feel safe and assured in my talent! Because of him I am now studying voice at BYU, I sing for a nationally ranked Acapella group, and have started my own band. I'm not just saying it started with Craig just to boost him, I sincerely mean it when I say he helped get not only my voice in shape but the confidence to sing it out loud and proud! Craig is highly recommended to all singers!!!!!
· Vocal Training · I first heard Craig sing live, and was so impressed. So I sent my teenage daughter to him for lessons. My daughter loved working with him. She has become an amazing vocalist in a band and an accapella group. Craig's instruction played a big role in her transformation.
· Vocal Training · In studio I really enjoyed taking Vocal with Craig. He was an amazing teacher and really helped me succeed as a vocalist. He helped me know the correct way to breathe, to stand, and many important things that you won't find with other instructors. I've taken lessons with many others, but no one like Craig. He was truly interested in my voice, and how I could become a better singer. He helped me recognize my strengths and weaknesses, and helped me strengthen them.
