    Very professional, friendly and efficient. I was a little nervous and he made me feel at ease. We promptly started and spent the whole time working on vocals.

    As an adult with no previous voice experience, my goal was to be able to perform in musicals. I have been working with David for almost two years and he has been a wonderful teacher. He has greatly expanded my range, projection and technique. As well as teaching the acting that goes along with a song. His excellent teaching has certainly paid off. I landed the part of Florinda in Into The Woods at my first musical audition and recently landed a lead part in a musical review show. Thanks to David, I am a better singer, more confident at auditions and able to live my dream of performing in musicals.

    David is the best voice teacher we have come across. Our child's breath control, voice projection and overall presentation of music has improved a lot since we have started lessons there. Mr. Smith's music lessons help with techniques in other forms of vocal music as well. He is very encouraging in his approach. David is a sheer delight to listen to, so much so that any person who sits in the lesson watching will pick up music!

    My daughters think he is a great teacher in singing well. He is a very understanding teacher and gives you plenty of time to think about how you should sing and works hard to help you improve, even more than you think you can.

    "For the past two years, David Smith has been a tremendous asset to our music ministry at Clear Lake United Methodist Church. His rich, resonant bass voice has made a huge difference in our choir. Numerous times, David has sung vocal solos for worship services; he has always been extremely well-prepared as a singer and performs in a way that conveys a commitment to musical excellence and to the text. His recent graduate voice recital in our sanctuary was a marvelous demonstration of David's gifts as an accomplished artist on many levels. As a performer, he will draw you into whatever song he is singing, whether it's Handel or Lerner and Loewe. We are certainly looking forward to David's presentation of the "Elijah"role in the spring of 2011.

    If you are serious about studying voice, it is critical that you select the right voice teacher. David's gifts as a teacher and his passion for learning will be an asset to any voice student. He led voice classes for each of our sections in the adult choir, and each one was extremely helpful and beneficial to our singers.

    On a personal level, David has been a delight as he has become involved in the life of our church. He is extremely personable, gracious and warm. It is a blessing to know such a gifted musician."
    ---Jeff Weiss, Music Director at Clear Lake United Methodist Church

Question and answer

Q. What education and/or training do you have that relates to your work?

A. I continue to be an active performer in opera and musical theater. It is very important for a voice teacher to be able to continue to perform at a high level, so that your voice teacher can demonstrate and understand the concepts of good vocal technique.

Q. Do you have a standard pricing system for your service? If so, please share the details here.

A. $25 for a half hour lesson, $45 for a full hour lesson.

I teach at several schools in the Houston area as well as my studio in Clear Lake.

Q. How did you get started doing this type of work?

A. While I loved music and made State choirs in high school, I actually entered college as a history major. I proceeded to change majors several times before I was cast in the opera at school. I fell in love with performing and decided to make music my career choice.

Teaching voice lessons became a passion during graduate school; while I still enjoy performing, teaching is my real passion and I fortunate enough to be able to make voice lessons my career.

Q. What types of customers have you worked with?

A. 1) Voice Teacher
2) Opera and Musical Theater performer
3) Singer for weddings, funerals, and other special occasions.

Q. What advice would you give a customer looking to hire a provider in your area of work?

A. 1) Shop around. While voice teaching does have a science to it, do not discount the personal interaction between teacher and student. Some instructors will just 'click;' others will not. Trust your instinct.

2) Ask the voice teacher for references from current students and employers (either in performing or teaching).

3) Ask the voice teacher to sing a small selection for you. While not all great performers make great teachers, a good voice teacher should possess a strong voice.

4) Ask the voice teacher to give you an idea of their vocal goals for you in a month, 3 months etc...A good voice teacher should be able to give you a detailed assessment.
