Our team includes several vocal instructors with varying specialties, as well as an artist development coach and a regular showcase band.
We work more like a team rather than as a loose collection of teachers who happen to share a roof (well, three roofs). Often, students work with one instructor for voice and with Justin for strategy or stage work. Or we share tips and techniques, or bring another teacher to sit in, when we find a student staying plateaued for too long. We’ve even been known to recommend a different teacher at Performance High if that’s the best thing for the singer. We’re a stronger team when we work together.
We ensure quality and consistency across all teachers, regardless of genre specialties, by participating in regular knowledge-sharing and cross-education within Performance High. All of our teachers teach mix singing in commercial, as opposed to classical, styles. Some teachers also have varying levels of classical background. All teachers are also active in the Denver music scene, whether it is in studio work or performing with their own bands.
Genres and Specialties
Although each teacher has a specialty, don’t worry if you don’t see your genre or sub-genre listed here. Every teacher is quite versatile. The underpinnings of voice are the same across all popular genres. Genre techniques diverge at a fairly high level, above the foundation of healthy singing. (For example, you need to learn breath support and how to mix whether you plan to drop some complicated riffs, shatter glass with a high belt, or scream.)
Artist Development Coach
Justin provides our artist development services and is the musical director for showcases. (For those who are interested, he also teaches guitar.)
Our showcase musicians love helping singers find confidence and have fun both during rehearsals and showcases. Many of them are educators as well, and work with students of all ages on a regular basis. We are usually able to bring the same band together for every showcase, helping singers feel more at home the more showcases they perform. When needed, we dip into a long list of top-tier pro Denver musicians.
