He's a great guy! He really cares about what happens to your voice, and wants to make it stronger and healthier. He's already taught me so much, and I've only had a couple lessons.

Houston is really excellent as a teacher.
He’s extremely knowledgeable and conveys his methods enthusiastically and clearly. I am not a ‘singer’ and he’s very accepting and encouraging.
Also his teaching space is lovely

I approached Mr. Simmons for his expert assistance in the areas of Vocal Development and control. My main area of concern was Breathing. Mr. Simmons taught me the Four Step process from the book he wrote. Through his intense, no nonsense and laser like approach to this industry, I am able to develop the proper breathing controls which have greatly contributed to my ongoing success!I have If you are serious about the Voice business and are seeking an equally serious, understanding, patient, respectful, professional and encouraging Voice Coach, Mr. Houston Simmons is The Man!!

It’s always an amazing experience with Mr.Simmons. He’s not only very professional and technical but he’s also very knowledgeable about singing and music theory. He’s the perfect teacher to learn singing from because he’s very flexible about his approach and customizes lessons based on your current skill set and what you want to achieve vocally. He always touches base on how other aspects of your life influence your vocal health and emphasizes the importance of being healthy. You will not regret booking with him, especially because of the amount growth you will experience in such a short time frame.
