Voice Lessons with Adrienne
“I have taken only a few lessons with Adrienne, but already she has changed my singing style for the better! I have been studying classical singing for around five years, and as a result had a very operatic sound. I wanted to mellow that sound out and add more of a chest/mixed voice element. Adrienne had some excellent ideas to help me achieve the sound I wanted. After only one lesson, my band noticed a big difference in the sound and control I had over my voice, and now I am much happier with the way I sound!”
I can’t believe I got a response from a fair entertainment coordinator today when six months ago I was done with music. This is all because of you and your support. Thank You, A! Thank You!
“I’ve taken lessons with all of the other teachers in my area, but they kept pushing me back into the classical or opera ways of hitting notes. With Adrienne I’ve learned to expand my range higher and lower with a pop tone that fits the music I do, and the difference has been huge. She helped my combine the new knowledge she was giving me without forgetting everything I knew before. Even the musicians I play with have noticed the difference, I’m singing with much more confidence, I’m doing more ad libs, I’m on top of the songs.”
When our daughter began working with Adrienne over a year ago, her range was limited and her stage confidence was also in need of a major boost. Adrienne set manageable expectations and together they worked every week to meet specific goals. We feel very lucky to have found such a professional, knowledgeable and encouraging vocal coach.
In addition, to teaching, Adrienne is also a truly gifted performer. Oftentimes teachers are unable to actually show their students how hard work can pay off, but in the case of Adrienne it’s the exact opposite. We have been able to take our daughter to watch Adrienne perform on several occasions. Watching these performances has encouraged our daughter to dig deeper and work harder to make Adrienne proud.
The growth we have seen in our daughter, both vocally and on the stage, is very impressive. Adrienne also provides opportunities for her students to perform in public and she even goes out of her way to come watch our daughter perform even if it’s not a Performance High show. The bond our daughter has with Adrienne and the experiences she has gained working with her are invaluable.
Her coaching has enabled our child to be a member of a top choir at her high school as well as an annual soloist in her school shows. But more important than being able to sing, Adrienne has boosted our daughter’s confidence and given her the courage to take on new challenges above and beyond the stage.
Working with Adrienne over the last few months has been a revelation really. I had been a guitar player who aspired to sing but my material was limited due to the limitations of my vocal range. Once Adrienne knew what I was looking for, in terms of extending my range, she very quickly got to grips with my vocal issues and within a few lessons had me going places I had never been any where near with my singing voice. If you could hear the difference in my voice a few months ago and now, you would understand why I called Adrienne “a miracle worker” after our last lesson.
“As a result of working with Adrienne my confidence is much greater and the range of songs I cover has increased hugely. The warm up exercises provided by Adrienne ensure that I am no longer straining when I reach for those higher notes and I am much more prepared both physically and mentally when I perform.
Adrienne Osborn is a true artist and teacher. She has helped me immensely with a range of areas–from vocal technique to proper warm-ups and exercises for particular issues to performance techniques and how to adapt a song to optimal performance. She is a master at technique as well as artistry, and even the energy of music and performance.
I recently started voice lessons with Adrienne after a 4 year singing break, and within a few short weeks I am regaining my connectivity, range and vibrato! Adrienne has an uncanny ability to zero-in on the exact exercises that I need to transform my voice and further my progress.
Kelsea has developed a confidence and poise that I believe is directly attributable to the positive influence Adrienne has had on her. Since starting lessons with Adrienne my daughter’s singing has improved immensely, and she’s having a great time. [Adrienne] definitely has a way with teenagers and I highly recommend her for anyone considering lessons.
I saw Adrienne just a couple of times. Those two lessons were enough to build my confidence in my abilities. Not only did she give me key vocal techniques that I could internalize and use, but she encouraged me to follow my dream and pursue my passion. I will be forever grateful to her.
As a gigging guitarist and vocalist wanting to take things to the next level I needed a performance/vocal coach that understands what performing live is all about.
“It’s pretty straightforward to find someone who will help you sing better in your choir, but I wanted someone who understands belting out rock or country at 2:00 am in a four-hour set. Someone who can pull the maximum sensitivity and nuance out of every word of a ballad. Someone who understands differences in genres and adapts accordingly. Someone who can improve your stage dynamics, help you capture an audience, build energy, and leave em’ wanting more. Most importantly I wanted someone who is actively performing in those situations.
“Not only has Adrienne delivered all that and more, but she is an absolute delight to work with. She tailors everything to the student’s specific needs in a clear, concise manner. She records each session, so you can work at home to perfect what you learn, and build capability….fantastic!
“So for a working vocalist, an aspiring one, or someone who just wants to sing well for the pure joy of it I don’t think you’ll find anyone better than Adrienne.”
Voice Lessons with Kristin
“Kristin is an exemplary teacher. Max has been working with her a couple of years and really looks forward to his lessons.
Even though she works with professionals, she was able to meet our tween son at his level and make lessons fun and absorbing. That doesn’t mean she doesn’t work him hard or have high expectations.
I am impressed with her vast knowledge of subject and how she teaches him specific strategies to use while singing to improve his sound and tonal quality. I appreciate her integrating music theory, history and even physics into his lessons.
Since he’s started working with her, he’s landed a lead part in a local play and she has provided ongoing support for that sometimes confusing experience.
It is clear that we have found a lifelong mentor for our son in Kristin, and that makes us grateful. I do heartily recommend her to anyone looking to take their musicality and performance to the next level. Teachers with Kristin’s skill set and personality are rare.”
Artist Development with Justin
“I was excited, but very nervous, about recording two demo tracks in one day during my first recording session. Luckily for me, Justin was an excellent producer throughout the process. He not only knew how to calm my nerves and coach me to bring out my best voice in the studio, but he really went the extra mile prior to us even meeting. He created a background track for me from scratch overnight when I found out that the song I really wanted to sing didn’t exist in an instrumental version! I feel so fortunate to have been able to record tracks that felt very comfortable with at my session, and Justin is 100% to thank for that! He truly takes pride in his work, and I am so happy with the final products!”
Voice Lessons with Tyler
I have been singing and performing for over 30 years and had never had formal vocal training. With more tenor than I knew what to do with, I knew I was failing to realize my full range and strength and it was affecting my vocal longevity. Tyler and I worked together to set measurable goals and a plan to gauge my progress. My band and I have clearly noticed the difference.
One of the things that I did not expect going in – and also what I enjoy most about working with Tyler – is that he is teaching me to be a better musician and artist as well as a better singer. As a songwriter myself we have been working almost exclusively on my own material, which is helping me to find my own voice. Tyler has also been able to offer some very valuable advice and opinions that are helping me to actually put the finishing touches on songs that just weren’t quite clicking yet.
“I feel like Tyler has done a very good job of tailoring his approach to what I want to accomplish and what will most help me get where I want to go. I feel like the results I’m getting and what we’re are working on each week is not particularly close to what I was expecting going in – and maybe not even what I had originally asked to work on when we first met – however, he has been able to identify what my real goals are, and everything we are working on is working to put me on the right path.
Voice Lessons with Emma
“I was extremely nervous when I first started with Emma do to self-esteem issues and the usual anxiety most people feel about performing, but that quickly went away. Not only is she incredibly friendly, but she also has great patience, gives really good explanations for exercises and techniques, and answers all of my questions. I have learned so much just from the few classes we’ve had and they have quickly become one of the highlights of my week. Even though I only signed up to learn about singing, breathing, and voice control without a specific goal in mind such as performing or recording music, I already feel more confident with my own voice.”
My daughter has been attending vocal lessons for 5 months now with Emma. Emma is amazing with her, she is great with kids. My daughter looks forward each week to going and signing her heart out. We have seen a big improvement in her voice. We recommend Performance High to anyone who is looking for vocal lessons for kids and adults. Ask for Emma – she is amazing!
I had singing lessons on my bucket list for over twenty years. I had just moved to Denver and emailed over ten different business that offered singing lessons for adults. Within no time, I received an email back from Adrienne, she was warm, welcoming and enthusiastic. I paired up with Emma as my vocal instructor and I could not have been happier. She is a wonderful and talented teacher, I am always happy leaving my lessons with her.
