We found Brian on Thumbtack, & after reading many positive reviews decided to try out his offer for a free lesson. He is now working with my teenage daughter, who has been singing since she could talk. Brian’s confidence & belief in her has increased her confidence and he is helping to develop her technique beyond fast! She’s performing at open mic nights, and has big goals ahead. Thanks Brian and Unfurledmusic - She is a long term student!Mar 25, 2018Verified
Brian knows what he is doing! He is very professional, is amazing to work with and I look forward to continuing my lessons with him and learning more and getting my voice back in shape. I studied Choir and Opera through high school and college and can tell you his method of teaching is the only way to go if you want a strong voice with no damage. I highly recommend him as a coach if you singing is your passion!Feb 28, 2018Verified
He explains his technique in a clear, easy to understand way and is very professional and helpful.Jan 6, 2018Verified
My daughter has been singing around the house and in the car to the radio since she could walk. She has a beautiful voice with natural talent but but she needed some help. When she said she wanted voice lessons I found Brian and set up a consultation. He said what she needed to hear and didn't sugar coat it which is what I was looking for. She is progressing quickly with his help and it has helped her step out of her comfort zone to where she is not afraid to do live performances. She needed a voice coach and now she has one. Thanks Brian!Nov 3, 2017Verified

- What is your typical process for working with a new customer?First we would schedule a free trial lesson where I explain my technique and show you some exercises. I will also have you sing for me, do an analysis of your voice, and talk about goals. There is no obligation to sign up for lessons, but if you choose to continue, we would schedule a time and day to meet weekly. Each lesson typically consists of a vocal workout (exercises to strengthen the muscles that control your vocal chords), and coaching on a song of your choice. I will point out areas that need improvement and show you how to fix problems you are having. You are also emailed an audio recording of the lesson so you can review and practice at home. We have a recital every three months to gain performing experience and apply all the training you've been doing.
- What education and/or training do you have that relates to your work?I have trained in Speech Level Singing with world-famous celebrity vocal coaches Seth Riggs in Los Angeles, Brett Manning in Nashville, and Debra Bonner in Utah. I earned a certificate from the Bonner Riggs training program for voice teachers. I am always striving to gain more knowledge and increase my skills and experience, so I can help singers to become their very best!
- How did you get started doing this type of work?I've been singing all my life! I am PASSIONATE about it! I never took lessons when I was young because I thought all voice teaches were classical. I liked singing other styles like pop, country, and R&B. I thought voice lessons would change my style and sound to something I don't like. When I discovered this method and learned that you CAN train in styles besides Classical and Opera, I became so fascinated that I decided to get some training and teach it myself! I want other singers to know that there IS another option to learn to sing ALL your favorite styles. I feel so fortunate to be able to make a living doing something that I LOVE!
