Hi, I'm Chris 

 Having started with no natural talent for singing, I had to grow each singing skill I now have from the ground up. I’m so excited to help you build the confidence and courage to sing, even if you’re starting from scratch.


Achieve a Life-Long Dream to Sing

 If you have said to yourself “I can’t sing” or “I’m too old to sing” or “I’ve been told NOT to sing in the past” then you’ve come to the right place. Lessons and courses with Chris will uncover all the myths and lies you’ve been told about what’s possible for your singing, so you can achieve a life-long dream to sing in a welcoming, encouraging and fun environment.


Lessons done in this way have been incredibly fun...


“I can’t speak highly enough of Chris. He has far exceeded my expectations as a vocal coach. Before I met Chris I was skeptical that I could even become a better singer. I wasn’t sure if lessons would even make a difference. After a couple
months of taking lessons with Chris...

Hey Chris, what do I need to do?

FAQ  

 Heya Chris, Who do you teach age-wise? 

 I teach from ages 12-100 🙂 You are never “too old” to sing, so don’t let all the misinformation about singing out there from the last century hold you back from achieving your singing dreams!

 Who do you teach...skill-wise? 

You don't need ANY prior experience with singing, voice lessons or music whatsoever. I will start with you from absolute scratch 🙂You need zero skill or natural ability to learn how to sing. Period.

I went from being considered "tone deaf" to winning vocal competitions so I now help "shower-only" singers go from "can't sing" to carpool-karaoke-ready.   


 Where do you teach? 

Courses are online, the free group class is online, Voice lessons are online and at the studio in Austin Tx.


 I have some other questions about singing and/or voice lessons/courses, where can I ask these questions?

You can call, email or text me and I also have a free online live class where I regularly answer questions about singing and lessons 🙂 it’s an easy-going online Q&A class that’ll probably save you a ton of time researching online for your answers. sign up or learn more below!



With Chris I feel I am finally going somewhere better with my voice..


I have been a musician and singer all my life but have had some trouble understanding the theories behind correct singing and their practical applications. I have always known I needed help with certain aspects of my singing, but I didn't even know how to explain what I needed help with in a way that made sense. With Chris I feel I am finally going somewhere better with my voice and my
understanding of what singing is.

Join a community of singers that are achieving new milestones…

Become more brave: express your art, your heart and yourself.

Through courses or lessons with Chris you can  go from not having ever really sung before to having a song performance-ready with backing track/piano.

Sing in tune, even if you think you're "tone deaf". 

As a “tone deaf” singer, I started with absolutely no skill, which means that I can walk with you every step of the way to singing on key consistently, which will help you break free from the “you-need-talent-to-sing" mindset.

Join the singing groups, the rock bands and the choirs you’d love to be a part of!

Want to join your first choir? An a cappella group like Pentatonix? How about just sing a duet? Singers in the studio are feeling so excited to make it through auditions and be part of amazing groups of musicians they never imagined they could join. Don't miss out. 


Nail Auditions, Even When You’re Nervous

Taking voice lessons with Chris, you’ll not only practice and build the skills to sing well even when you’re nervous, you’ll get real-life opportunities to perform through mini-performances in lessons and the Singer’s Workshop, the ONLY place where you get an intermediate step between practicing by yourself and performing for the general public. What have singers working with Chris accomplished audition-wise?


1. Made it to TMEA auditions

2. Landed a spot in a top high school choir

3. Secured a spot in the Gilbert and Sullivan society

4. Moved past the first round of American Idol auditions

5. Won lead roles in musical theater


6. Awarded college scholarships for singing as high as $20,000

And much more!



An Adventure in Person​al Discovery Development

“Working with Chris is and adventure in personal discovery and development. As a retired research librarian I had to asky myself why.

— Actively Diagnostic — Chris found out for himself where I actually am. We started with a (very) short music / singing history, a directional goal based on what I hoped to do, then actual breath and sound work to find out what my breath and sound was at that very moment. He even used that diagnostic process to begin to help me become aware of what I’m doing now. For example, to breathe in a specific way and notice what happened, and describe it. Then breathe a different way and compare it. Already I was learning the physical awareness I need to develop.

— Discovery not Dogma.– After the first month of lessons I still haven’t been told what ‘the right way’ to do something is. At least not by Chris.
My whole body is telling me what it prefers to do when I’m not telling it to things ‘my’ way.

Comfortable from the very first les​son...





Chris is wonderful with my daughter. I presented him with a list of issues she was having, and he had a structured lesson tailored to her needs ready the very first lesson. He has a way of making students feel comfortable from the very first lesson. I would highly recommend him!! Rachel M.
