My 10 year old daughter has been taking singing lessons from Paul for the past 2 years, (recently added guitar lessons) -- I cannot even put into words how awesome he is as an teacher. Just the right amount of nurturing, positive encouragement and fun. And he comes with years and years of "in the business" experience, so his advice really carries weight. It's a bit of a drive from where we are to get to him, but we cannot even imagine going to anyone else. Daughter literally looks forward to each lesson (this is the same person that groans every morning about school, just to give some context). Worth the drive. Worth the cost.

Paul is an great voice teacher with a unique ability to detect subtle voice issues and equally effective at addressing them. He keeps classes fun and engaging with an upbeat and motivating personality. I am already seeing a noticeable improvement in the areas noted below with only a few classes. I am hopeful more training will lead to measurable impact in my corporate career. 1. Improve tone variation and quality 2. Reduce effect of slight accent on pronunciation of certain letters and word 3. Improve enunciation 4. Developing a commanding tone for corporate presentations

Details: 28 or older • No experience • General introduction • As recommended by teacher • Phone or internet (no in-person meeting)

My daughter has been taking vocal lessons with Paul Lewis at Realize for about 4 years. Wow! What a difference a great teacher makes! Paul not only encourages his students to push themselves to a higher level, he also allows his students freedom to pursue their own creative path. I would highly recommend the Realize company without question.
