Whether you are professional, not-yet-professional, or a “just want to have fun” singer – never had a voice lesson or have 500 shows under your belt – we can work with you to help you be the artist you want to be.

Vocal Training

We focus on the healthy singing of popular music.  We recognize the power of character in popular music, and we want to help you develop your unique voice with range, flexibility, power, projection, stamina, and of course, lifelong vocal health.  Learn more.

Artist Development

We help you figure out who you want to be and how to get there.  It starts with goals and dreams, and goes from there.  To support your development as an artist, we offer stage performance classes, workshops and seminars, performance showcases, songwriting lessons, and one-on-one consultation and mentoring.  We also know who to connect you with when you are ready for the next steps. Learn more.

Grow With Us

Because we have a sister school providing instrumental instruction and other services such as record production and basic recording services, you can continue to grow with us as you evolve.  (Several students have been with us for over five years!)  In short, we can probably help you get where you want to go.

Who We Work With

Our students tend to be fun people who are serious about music.  We serve singers all over Colorado’s Front Range:  Boulder, Denver, Longmont, Niwot, Gunbarrel, Louisville, Lafayette, Erie, Frederick, Superior, Westminster, Broomfield, Thornton, Arvada, Golden, and Fort Collins.  We have also worked with students all over the world from Europe to Australia.

In Colorado, we’ve worked with members of The String Cheese Incident, Firefall, Filthy T, Pride in Pieces, Kill Paris, Hey Lady!, Roniit, Jacob Larson, Jaden Carlson, Princess, Behaving Badly, Starcar Sunday, Public Display of Aggression, Howl at the Moon piano bar, and many other bands. We have also worked with two top American Idol finalists, singers in Europe and Australia, and bands signed to labels including Atlantic, Elektra, Immortal, Wind Up, Curb, Blind Bat, S-Curve, Victory, Blues Legacy and J Records.

Performance High is a proud partner of KIPP Sunshine Peak Academy, providing singing classes for the 2017-2018 season.

The Great Fit Guarantee

We get it – finding the right teacher can be hard.  You want someone who is knowledgeable… but fun, too.  Personality does matter.  With several talented teachers on staff, we’re small enough to maintain our quality standards and big enough to stand behind our commitment to find your best teacher.   So if you feel like your teacher isn’t a fit after your first lesson, we’ll arrange a complimentary lesson with another one of our teachers.  And if you still feel like we struck out, we’ll refund your money.  Just let us know.

How We’re Different

  • We respect rock, pop, hip hop, electronica, R&B, soul, metal, and other popular music genres as art forms.
  • We teach popular vocal styles with a high level of attention to technical detail and vocal health.
  • We’re big enough to offer a lot more than just voice lessons, but small enough to provide high-quality, customized instruction and have a fun community. 
  • We organize frequent performance opportunities that would normally be available only to more established artists.
  • We offer various pricing packages to suit every budget and schedule.
  • We’re responsive, professional, and communicative.  Whether you’re inquiring about a lesson, have a question about payment, or need to reschedule or cancel, we always respond quickly.

“As a musician and singer/songwriter who has played and sung for over 30 years I was interested in moving to the next levels in my craft. After contacting two other providers I quickly got frustrated. I found these established providers that came recommended by friends lacked professionalism and organization yet wanted to charge substantial rate. In desperation I resorted to Google and found Performance High. From the first contact I received cogent information that helped me determine if this was going to be the provider for me. Adrienne addressed all my questions and no pressure while working to meet my goals and scheduling needs. I am on my tenth vocal lesson and have seen great results from the techniques and coaching I have received. I have discovered latent levels of my vocal range I did not realize I had. I would recommend and have recommended Performance High to other musicians. Thank you Adrienne for taking your business and clients seriously. It is clear you have a passion that will help others realize theirs.” – Cris Z.

"I expected a lot more from Adrienne than any other vocal coach I’ve had over the past 10 years, and I’ve had 10 or 12 of them. She knew a lot more than any other coach I have approached during the years, and also I have a lot more demands on a vocal coach nowdays than when I started out. And she lived up to them all." - Marcus Carlzon, Lead singer of Swedish hard rock band Firstborn

"I have spent hundreds of hours trying to sing hard and high with fullness wile not damaging my voice. Although the thousands of dollars I have spent on classical training along with other ‘at home’ tutorials helped open up my vocal range, I never felt I had a lot of power behind the super high notes. Adrienne helped me find amazing ways to look at singing and note placement that I had never heard before. Apparently she can teach this old dog new tricks!." - Jacob Warner, lead singer of hard rock Westword nominee Princess

"Adrienne Osborn is beyond pro. She’s a singers’ singer. From shaping vowels to proper breathing techniques she knows what she’s doing and she can pull the best out of ANY aspiring vocalist. I only send my people to THE BEST.” - Chris Thomas, producer, vocalist and talent buyer

"Working with Adrienne and Kristin is a true joy. They have an intricate knowledge of the voice and a remarkable ability to hear problem areas and make suggestions that are immediately helpful. Not only do they provide instruction on vocal technique, but also on performance and 'delivering' music to an audience." - Steve and Susan Baumgartner, Bradford Junction

"We searched Denver for nearly one year and interviewed multiple vocal coaches before starting private vocal instruction with Adrienne. Adrienne improved Abbey’s vocal range and stage confidence in her first few lessons and with each lesson we see further, measurable improvements." - Kevin Shaw, father of Abbey Shaw, lead singer of Our Generation

“I just wanted to let you know that, largely thanks to you, our Zeppelin show at Cervantes went GREAT. I received a ton of compliments from the venue, band members, and the audience…many of whom said I ‘nailed it.’ I was actually able to hit a couple higher notes than the ones I was having trouble with in our lesson after I put some of your advice into practice.  That night definitely wouldn’t have gone nearly as well without your help. Money VERY well spent!!” – Christina U., Ragged Union
