How does your service stand out?

My work as a voice teacher stands out because I bring unique experience as K-12 music teacher, gospel choir director, and singer/songwriter to my training of singers. I have had the opportunity to put the technique to work in a variety of settings very effectively.

What do you enjoy about the work you do?

I love to see the look on students' faces when they experience a breakthrough with their voices. Their eyes light up!! They realize that the work they put in has paid off and they are so grateful for the guidance that I can give.

    Earl has been a great vocal coach and mentor. I have been a student of his for almost 2 years. Shortly after starting lessons with Earl, I suffered a hemorrhage on my left vocal chord and had nodules. The doctors were recommending surgery but I was against it. Earl helped me nurse my vocal chords back to health one week at a time with the various vocal exercises. I did not have to have surgery and my voice is now strong and healthy! I have learned many excellent vocal techniques and Earl had extensive knowledge as to why these exercises and techniques work. He tailors your lessons to the goals you have set and works hard to get the results you are looking for. He comes highly recommended if you are serious about taking your voice to the next level. I am a vocal athlete because of Earl Harville!!!

    Working with Earl has been a great asset to my life and very beneficial. I studied with him for about 9 months and it was in preparation for my college auditions. Each school had a different song repertoire from classical, jazz, pop, and theatrical. I knew that if I studied with Earl, that I would be well prepared for my auditions, and I sure was. While working with Earl, I noticed a tremendous increase within my vocal ability in just the first few weeks. There are so many little things that as singers we don't even know, unless we have the proper instructor to inform us. Earl has a strong musical background and is very knowledgeable in this field. I strongly encourage you to study with Earl. He works at your pace and helps with whatever you need help with. By working with Earl, my vocal range has expanded, stage presence is more confident, voice is more full, and overall musicianship skills have increased. I am now a music performance major at the University of Indianapolis and am grateful to have had the opportunity to work with Mr. Earl Harville. Job well done!!!

    I would like to say that Earl Harville of Harville Vocal Studio is an exceptional teacher. Earl is the only vocal teacher that was able to show me how to navigate through my bridges and give me exercises to improve on my overall range. He also explains the different mechanisms with these techniques. I had previous teachers that just told me, "just do this and that." Earl is a breath of fresh air and it shows in my performance and confidence. I am so glad that our paths crossed.

    Just want to say thank you, I haven't forgotten the lessons. The lessons are a Godsend. Earl's instructions are clear and the exercises have helped so much. Thank you for your patience and your kindness. I still have my high ranges and I know it is because of my vocal lessons.

Q&A

How did you get started doing this type of work?
I decided that I wanted to teach voice after reading Mark Baxter's "Rock & Roll Singers' Survival Manual" and Seth Riggs' "Singing For The Stars". I was drawn to the fact that I could combine my love of singing with my interest in physiology. Plus, I feel that I'm a born teacher and have a great passion for passing on what I was blessed to learn.
Describe a recent project you are fond of. How long did it take?
While living in Long Beach, I was contacted by a woman who had suffered from severe gastric reflux and whose voice had really been adversely affected by it. She wanted to get back to singing but had almost given up hope. We began lessons last fall and it was so amazing to see the improvement in her voice after the first few weeks. She began to make sounds that she had been unable to for quite some time. I am very thankful to have been able to help her get closer to her goal of reclaiming her voice.
What questions should customers think through before talking to professionals about their project?
I want clients to know that I absolutely love training singers!! I truly feel that it is my calling and I take that responsibility very seriously. I am committed to continue learning about the best methods to help students develop the technique that will allow them to find their best voice.
