I am a professional vocal coach with 5+ years of experience, as well as an international pop artist, actor, emcee and public speaker. Over the years I have trained under the best vocal coaches in the nation, and studied a range of techniques including classical vocal training, contemporary vocal training, and the SLS (Speech Level Singing) method. This wide range of study combined with years of teaching and performance experience have given me a vast vocal vocabulary to help teach others the "secret sauce" of singing and speaking. I specialize in singers, actors, and public speakers and focus on developing proper technique to protect and enhance your voice while still sounding uniquely "you"!

About Norwood M.

I am a professional vocal coach with 5+ years of experience, as well as an international pop artist, actor, emcee and public speaker. I've studied a wide range of techniques including classical vocal training, contemporary singing, and the SLS (Speech Level Singing) method.

Over the years I've trained under the best vocal coaches in the nation including Jan Smith (Usher, Justin Bieber, Rob Thomas, etc.), RAab Stevenson (Justin Timberlake, Kelly Clarkson, Kelly Rowland, etc.), Lis Lewis (Maroon 5, Rihanna, etc.), and Renee Grant-Williams (The Dixie Chicks, Carrie Underwood, Christina Aguilera, etc).

This wide range of study combined with years of teaching and performance experience have given me a vast vocal vocabulary to help teach others the "secret sauce" of singing and speaking. I have experience teaching from ages 8+, for those with special needs, in a wide variety of styles and genres. I also teach professional speakers and actors how to use their speaking voice properly. My students say that I am a patient teacher who takes time to explain how the voice works and help them reach their potential.

My goal is to help share the fantastic techniques I've learned from the A-Level coaches with the masses at a fraction of the cost. Students of mine often hear a big improvement in their voice after only two weeks of lessons!

Norwood is extremely humble and easy to work with. He never made me feel like I wasn’t good enough but always made me feel like I could reach a higher level of excellence for my unique range. He embraces each voice as its own and meets the student where they are at. He is extremely knowledgeable on how sounds are created, how space is made in the voice, and he is able to communicate that knowledge effectively to the student. In short, I loved having Norwood as a teacher.

My 10-year-old son Lucky started taking lessons with Norwood a few months ago, and it’s like a star has been born! He has seen a big boost in his confidence, his pitch has gotten much better, and he really enjoys the lessons. He has even started performing! The changes have happened very fast.

Norwood is an excellent teacher! He is very knowledgeable and is very kind. I was always very shy to sing, but Norwood helped me overcome that!

Thanks to Norwood, I can honestly say I have greatly improved my skills as a professional speaker. I used to have a crack in my voice, and after just a few lessons it was GONE! I have also improved my tone, range, pitch, and overall communication skills. Every public speaker can benefit from Norwood's help.

Norwood is a very insightful vocal instructor and teaches easy, effective techniques that work for speaking and singing. He also practices what he preaches!

My 11-year old daughter Danielle has made HUGE strides as a singer since Norwood has been coaching her! We not only rely on him to expand her range and musical interpretation, but when we have auditions the lessons with Norwood are tailor made for what we need.

I’ve been working with Norwood for about 2 months, and I’ve really seen an improvement in my breath control. I’ve also been able to release a lot of the tension I had been feeling when reaching for those higher notes. Norwood is very knowledgable about singing, and he has a teaching style that is easy to understand. Everything I’ve learned has been very simple and easy to grasp.

My son Jacob took lessons from Norwood, and after just a few lessons had gained a lot more knowledge and techniques that he didn't have before! His breathing improved, and his confidence came way up! 5 stars to Norwood!
