Are you looking to benefit from the expertise and feedback of an experienced professional? Disappointed by all the easy, new, one-size-fits-all singing methods (that promise instant results)?

Whether you're an advanced vocalist or just starting out, let Eric Walker put his masters level education, his proven vocal methods and his over 20 years of experience to work for you!
About Eric W.

Is this you? Do you struggle to sing with ease and freedom? Are you frustrated because you can't seem to hit that high note without strain or tension? Are you tired of forever running out of breath, right when you need it most? Do you want to discover and expand your current vocal range? Would you like to sing with greater volume and power? Is this you? Does your voice crack or break at unexpected moments? Is your vocal tone too breathy? Too harsh? Too thin or nasal? Do you feel your voice lacks sufficient emotion, sensitivity and feeling? Do stage fright and nervousness sometimes get the best of you? Is that all-important audition just around the corner? For over 20 years I've helped students of all ages maximize their vocal potential! By embracing a variety of vocal styles, from classical to contemporary, I've helped my students excel in musical theater, ace college auditions, travel as lead singers with rock bands, record music videos and even reach the higher levels of American Idol auditions! I hold both Bachelors and Masters degrees in vocal music and have directed vocal groups traveling internationally to more than 10 countries on four continents. I've personally produced more than 20 full-scale musical/theatrical stage productions with casts of over 200 and ticketed audiences of up to 10,000. I'm certified as a K-12 Public School Music Teacher and have taught Private Voice for 10 years on the university level. In addition I've promoted concert events for more than 40 nationally known artists including Randy Travis, Chris Tomlin, Michael W. Smith, Jeremy Camp and Mercy Me. My lessons are relaxed, friendly, results-oriented and apply the best vocal technique, while also focusing on the unique needs and goals of each student. My passion is to enable those I work with, from beginner to advanced, to fully realize their singing potential! I currently teach online as well as from my home studio in Louisville, Kentucky.
