Singing at Performance High
Performance High is more than a music school. It’s a community of aspiring and performing musicians having fun together, and helping each other grow into the musicians they dream of being.
All of our faculty members are actively performing and gigging musicians, so our clients get real-life training and education in what it means to be a performing artist in today’s musical landscape. Our team is invested in your success and pull together to make sure you have all the resources and opportunities you need to follow your dreams.
One of the things our clients love the most about being part of Performance High is the opportunities to build confidence as they jam with other musicians and perform in groups. We offer free jam sessions, opportunities to form bands, and frequent performance opportunities.
The most exciting events are standing-room-only concerts at premier Denver venues such as the Hard Rock Cafe, The Venue, and the Walnut Room. These expertly staged performances provide clients with real gig experience that they need to become full-fledged musicians, complete with a live audience, lighting and stage technicians, and professional producers and engineers.
Top Notch Vocal Training From Educated Instructors
Voice is one of the hardest instruments to teach for so many reasons. Every singer begins with different pre-existing vocal habits that must be handled differently. The voice is connected to emotion and ego more intimately than other instruments. The voice is part of the whole person, so you can’t work just with the voice, you must work with the person. And… you can’t see this amazing instrument!
This is why we place a special emphasis on continuing education and frequent knowledge sharing sessions among teachers.
With our focus on top-notch instruction incorporating techniques from classic methods such as Bel Canto and Speech Level Singing as well as cutting-edge screaming and new contemporary commercial vocal techniques, clients make quick progress with healthy vocal instruction in all commercial genres – pop, rock, R&B, electronica, jazz, country, blues, folk, musical theatre, and metal.

Online and In-Person Lessons
We offer both online and in-person lessons. Both have their advantages. Many students take advantage of switching back and forth between online and in-person lessons.
Online lessons save gas and driving time, encourage ear training, allow easier recording, allow you to keep practicing in the same location as soon as your lesson is over, and reduce coordination needed between parents.
In-person lessons allow live accompaniment and singing together, can afford a greater sense of privacy, feel more social, allow singers to practice with a live microphone, provide more room to move, and allow a break from screen time.

Instruction and Coaching
A vocal instructor teaches you the technical aspects of how to sing – such as how to project, improve tone, extend range, increase power, and smooth over your mix.
A vocal coach helps you interpret your song, find your voice, make songs your own, and improve your performance.
We do both. But on top of that, we teach personal growth. Belief in self. Possibility. Opportunity. Change. Crossing bridges. And learning how to learn. Learn more in the video below.
