I offer high-quality, client-centered voice lessons that focus on technique and performance. I have worked with all voice types, including those who have severe vocal damage. You will notice an immediate difference in your voice after our first lesson together. Your success is my biggest focus!

I have studied under some of the top vocal coaches, speech pathologist, myofunctional therapist, and vocal scientist in the nation to better understand the functionality of the vocal folds as they relate to speech and singing.

My specialties include expanding the vocal range, smoothing over the bridge in the voice, teaching "mix" technique, correcting issues with speech, and helping clients deliver their most moving performance.

I coached voice and guitar at one of the most prestigious studios in Atlanta. My clients here ranged from children as young as 3 years old to adults in their 60's. The majority of my students gain an octave to their range after training with me.

Nothing but good things to say about Jacob! I came to him as a drummer wanting to sing background vocals. From the very first lesson Jacob made me feel very comfortable and at ease. It's hard in my opinion to teach an instrument that is non tangible but Jacob does it in a way that is easy to follow. He is very knowledgeable but can break things down so even a drummer can understand. :)

Jacob was amazing! The best vocal coach I've found in Nashville! He understand the voice and how the vocal cords work in a way that I have never seen from other teachers. He makes the most out of every second we have together in our lesson which is important because I've had teachers who waste time or don't really give me 100% of their attention in lessons which can be so frustrating. Jacob is VERY present and attentive to every little detail. We've also done Skype lessons when I've been on the road which has been very helpful.

I've had quite a few vocal teachers over the years, and Jacob is the best.

This is not an exaggeration-- it's the God's honest truth. Jacob is a friendly, personable guy with a TON of education and training himself on the subject of singing and vocal instruction, and is not only a great singer himself, but a great teacher.

Within 2 lessons, I already noticed a marked difference, that ALSO not an exaggeration. This guy is the real deal, and I'd pay twice his rate to keep taking form him.

There is no greater vocal coach than Jacob! My vocal bridge is smoother than I ever could have imagined and my tone has improved tremendously. Jacob is the most knowledgeable and helpful vocal coach I’ve had the pleasure of working with during my performance career. With Jacobs help, I have truly been able to deliver some of the most moving performances of my life.

Jacob is an amazing teacher and my experience with him could not have been better! He has a great personality with endless patience and encouragement. Our lessons were the perfect blend of a fun hang-out vibe and focus on technique; he kept things simple and easy to understand and maintained a pace that was comfortable. Jacob was very considerate and made each lesson enjoyable and extremely helpful. Whatever level of interest you have, Jacob is an incredibly talented teacher and I highly recommend him.

Jacob has coached my daughter for 2 years! She has experienced a HUGE increase in her range. We didn't think she would be able to sing high notes until he began to coach her. For half the lesson they also focus on guitar and he had her playing songs by herself after only a month. We love Jacob! Highly recommended!

Jacob taught me and my older sister! He is awesome! I had serious vocal damage when I met him and now my voice is 100% better. I am a wedding singer and worship leader and if it wasn't for his coaching I would not be able to still be booking the gigs I currently have.

Jacob is an amazing professional. My vocal range increased by an octave after training with him. He is a great listener and has incredible knowledge on the function of the voice. I have trained with many other vocal coaches in my career but he is by far the best and most informed teacher I've ever met. I couldn't recommend him more!
