I am one of Ed's "older" students. I came to him at a very later part of my life with absolutely no musical background. None!! I told him that I someday wanted to become a member of a church choir. He accepted this challenge. He was very kind, and patiently worked with building my confidence in singing during my first year with him. I've been with him for a couple years now, and I am extremely satisfied to have Ed as my singing instructor. His excellent ear/skills for music is what he uses to capture your style and applies it to that particular person. He is very diverse with his music; being able to teach all genres, i.e. R&B, Pop, Country, Church Choir. What ever you like, he can teach you!
The singing I use to dream about, Ed is teaching me to bring it alive. I'm using my head voice, my chest voice, and finally some vibrato is coming my way!!
When God said, "start singing," He also gave me the perfect instructor.
I would highly recommend Ed Barrena for people of "all" ages -beginners and advanced.
