Singing Lessons

I started voice lessons a few weeks ago with EJ Michael’s, and I’m blown away by my progress. Prior to working with him, I’d never had voice lessons before, but I’d purchased several online courses through Udemy and watched online tutorials on youtube, and I was frustrated and unsure about how to progress. It’s hard to put into words just how amazing it is to work with someone who is so professional, kind and encouraging and knows the latest cutting edge vocals techniques and can teach and demonstrate how to sing anything you want to sing. He’s an incredible singer, songwriter, and producer who is can sing as well if not better my favorite artists, and even though he’s extremely busy at times touring the world as the lead singer of his band Foreign Figures, performing and giving inspirational live performances and talks at schools and venues like TEDx Salt Lake City, he somehow manages to pour an incredible amount energy into helping his students to achieve their goals. I studied classical piano for 8 years while I was growing up, and I've always had a pretty nice voice. I played the piano professionally for church for years, and but for some reason, I had the misconception that you’re stuck with the voice you’re born with and until very recently I didn't know it was possible to build muscle memory in my voice with vocal exercises. I can't believe how much range, control and power I've gained in less than a month of doing the exercises every day and having weekly lessons with EJ Michels. I finally feel like I'm building the tools I need to make music I love because I have my whole voice to work with, not just a limited range. It feels so good because for the first time in 20 years or so, I feel like I’m making real progress, having fun and enjoying my life. The money I’ve spent on lessons with EJ Michels is hands down the best money I’ve ever spent pursuing my goals in music, and I can’t say enough good things about him.

There aren’t enough words to describe the endless gifts Eric Michels has as not only a musician, performer, vocalist producer songwriter -& I could go..however one gift that he has that is rare is his ability to teach others how to build and grow their own gifts so they can reach their potential. I know I wouldn’t be where I am without his guidance insight and direction!

Singing Lessons

My husband has always enjoyed singing so he set a goal to become better. After only 3 lessons, his skills and confidence have improved greatly. I can already tell a difference. He says, "he's the best voice coach I've ever had!" (EJ is also the first 😉)
