Ive studied voice with a number of teachers, including some in New York who teach Broadway and opera professionals. John Peters is by far the most knowledgeable and effective I have ever seen.
John can, of course, act as a coach to help you prepare for auditions and performances. But John's unique strengths are that he really understands how the body works to produce good sounds, and he knows how to communicate to his students so they can get it, too.
If you are a beginner and its surprising, most of us actually are, even if weve studied with other teachers for years John has a series of exercises to get your breathing and vocal cords working the way they should. If youre an experienced singer, John is uncanny at immediately identifying the flaws in your technique and assigning special vocal exercises that address them specifically.
He quickly enlarged my range from barely an octave-and-half to way more than two octaves, got my tone to resonate much more richly, and developed my vibrato into a dependable part of my voice that I could control.
I recommend John very highly. He's that very rare vocal professional who is equally at home teaching the whole gamut from rock singing to country music to Broadway and opera "legit" technique. Whether youre a beginner who wants to sound better, or a working professional who wants to take his or her career to the next level, John knows how to pitch his instruction to you as an individual and help you achieve your goals.
