I recently had my first lesson with Mr. McCafferty. It was a challenge to find a teacher who teaches classical style singing, so I ended up relying on YouTube warm-ups/tutorials which isn't always ideal, especially since I don't have any guidance with what I may be doing wrong. I learned a lot about vocal physiology during our first session, and I also learned how to better my breath support, but it is still a work-in-progress. I look forward to more lessons with Mr. McCafferty.May 3, 2019Verified

Chris is incredibly knowledgeable, accommodating, and kind. His approach to voice coaching has been carefully tailored to my needs, based on his in depth assessment of my history with vocal performance and my goals. With high regard; Mcafferty for president.Dec 24, 2016Verified

Almost twenty years ago, I stopped singing. I’m not sure why really, but other hobby passions took priority, and recently, I found myself yearning to be part of a community effort at ensemble singing. I realized with the prospect of auditioning that I felt completely unprepared for this task, having been away from singing for so long, so I took to Thumbtack in search of a voice coach/teacher to get me back on track. My search quickly found me in the music studio of Chris McCafferty. (Read previous statement as “I was lost, and now I’m found”). I couldn’t possibly be more pleased with Chris and his teaching style. He offers the optimal combination of encouragement and support, along with practical truths about my areas for improvement in relatable ways that I can understand, with a communication style that is both kind and actionable. In addition to expressing an exceptional teaching style, Chris is an amazing human being, and his goodness radiates from him. If you’re looking for a voice teacher, regardless of your skill level or age, you owe it to yourself to pay a visit to Chris, and see for yourself how much he can enrich and progress your vocal technique.Aug 13, 2017Verified
