The human voice is one of the most versatile instruments ever created. For musical artists, their voice transports listeners to another time and place, evokes strong feelings, and draws out a number of emotional reactions. Whether you are a budding singer, an experienced crooner, or someone who simply wants to improve their ability to sing well in your church choir – there are many beneficial lessons you can learn from an accomplished voice instructor. I can help you explore the full range of your voice. At Octave Higher Voice Studio in Austin, we work with you to help discover how to deliver a song in way that fits the style and mood of the song.

Tried and True Technique

Octavehigher Voice Studio

I pride myself on offering the best techniques and strategies to my students; techniques which I have practiced and refined over many years. I consistently help singers increase their power and preserve their health while perfecting technique. This strategy reliably increases longevity to the careers of the students I teach. Since 1985 I have been teaching and studying, with the past 14 years of that time dedicated to teaching private voice. My background also includes 30 years as choir director. All of my knowledge is channeled into making my students better, regardless of musical background: classical vocal music, pop music, musical theater, country, rock, and heavy metal.

Similar to most things in life, practicing proper technique prepares you to succeed. With a solid technique in place, you are able to sing a variety of styles. The technique that I utilize is one that is used worldwide, and one that continues to grow today due to its measured success.

I'm excited to think about where my voice can go!"
