I’ve had the privilege of working with a lot of talented and amazing people over the years. I’m truly grateful for each and every single one of them. I’ve had so many people reach out to tell me how helpful our time spent together was for them and how much of a positive impact it had on their life. Not all of them have continued with a musical journey but each one has continued with their journey and it makes me happy to know I’ve been part of it. What an absolute honor. What a gift.

What Some People Say About Working With Me
I picked up my guitar a while back after years of it just sitting in the case gathering dust. I got some tips from friends, learned a couple of tunes and even jammed out in some garages. I struggled but still made some headway. Progress was slow and I had some extra time on my hands so I thought, why not try some lessons? Well, guess what? I got better! Quickly! I’m no Clapton, but I can handle myself and I’m learning songs and techniques faster and faster.
So why did it take me so long to realize I needed to do the same thing if I wanted to sing better? I’m not sure, to be honest. It’s almost like I thought that singing is different than learning an instrument somehow, that it’s just something you’ve got or you don’t. I worked hard for years and improved some but so many things eluded me. Why couldn’t I hit certain notes? Why couldn’t I stay consistent in my tone from week to week? Why does it look so easy when someone else does it?
Well, long story short, I finally started looking around for a vocal instructor. Left messages with some folks who never returned my calls, considered going to a community college class, and then I found Jeremy. In less than a year, I’m miles ahead in my singing ability. There is no way I could have made this kind of progress on my own. Jeremy was able to analyze my singing and pinpoint the weaknesses. If you’re looking for someone to blow smoke, find someone else. If you want to be a better singer, you’re going to need someone that is honest with you, can communicate in a language you can understand, and can build on your strengths. That’s Jeremy. I still have a lot of work to do, but I know I’m on the right track because I’m getting more in touch with my instrument. That’s how I treat my voice now, like an instrument. I can hear and feel when something is wrong now. The best feeling in the world is to hit a note, lean into it, and realize that by executing proper technique, it’s actually easier than I ever imagined. My daily challenge is to forget the bad habits I learned over the years of self-teaching and to stay within myself.
Singing isn’t intuitive to me. I need someone who understands the instrument, can determine where my weaknesses are, and customize a practice routine that builds the foundation for a strong voice. That’s what Jeremy Bruce has done for me. My wife tells me I’m doing great, but she’s a little biased. Last time we were at Karaoke and a friend was there who always stands out vocally said he couldn’t believe how much my voice has improved. Trust me, he never mentioned it before! I’m getting better and it feels great.
Working with Jeremy has significantly improved my singing & I couldn’t be more happy or thankful!
I started taking voice lessons with Jeremy almost a year ago now. I’m a singer/songwriter & I’ve loved singing my entire life but I never really knew how to do it. Before I started with Jeremy, I felt like my singing was getting worse everyday. I couldn’t hit the notes I wanted to & when I could, it wasn’t consistent. I quickly lost my voice after singing a few songs. The tone of my voice sounded just bad. I was lost and I needed help.
On my first lesson with Jeremy, he helped me improve my tone right away. It was honestly unbelievable. I’ve worked with a handful of vocal coaches in the past & none of them have ever been able to accurately assess my unique singing issues like Jeremy did right away.
Now a year later, all of my friends & family & small fan base have commented on what a world of difference these singing lessons have had on my singing. Now I can perform for an hour or more at a time without experiencing the vocal fatigue I used to. I’m able now to just hit notes that I used to really reach and struggle for. Most importantly, I feel confident in my knowledge of how to sing because of Jeremy. Not only do I now know how to warm up, how to do scales, and how to warm down; but I know HOW to sing.
I was looking for a vocal coach that could finally help me and I found one. Thanks so much for everything Jeremy!
I’ve been working on and off with Jeremy for a little over a year. By far the best vocal coach I’ve ever had and I learn so much each time I go in. I always look forward to going to my vocal lessons just because I know I’m going to improve each time!
Jeremy has helped me so much over the last couple years, not only with improving my singing and speaking voice, but also with my overall confidence. He is honest about what does and doesn’t sound good, and always offers encouragement and a plan for how to continue improvement week after week. His lessons are comprehensive and include not only singing exercises to improve the voice, but also positive habits to tackle the mental game behind finding confidence in one’s voice and oneself.
I can’t express in words my complete satisfaction with Jeremy and his wonderful teaching style, personality, and methods. I started working with Jeremy in April 2019, and he has made a tremendous difference in my vocal skills and abilities. My confidence in my voice and singing had been destroyed by a negative experience, but Jeremy patiently worked with me to rebuild that confidence. I’m now comfortable singing in public and working on songs for my daughter’s wedding. He is outstanding and a tribute to his profession. I strongly endorse Jeremy if you are interested in learning how to improve your vocal skills.
My speaking journey was not without issues. When I first started my lessons, I was really struggling with my breath, getting fatigued quickly within a minute or two of practicing scales. I decided to see a physician and was diagnosed with possible vocal cord dysfunction for which I was told that there is no definitive cure. Although this was upsetting, I kept up with my lessons and with daily practice, I was able to overcome my vocal cord issues. I couldn’t have gotten here without Jeremy’s support and encouragement throughout this process.
Jeremy is a wonderful teacher and I highly recommend him to anyone who is looking to improve their speaking voice.
Jeremy has been awesome to work with and has made every lesson easy and comfortable. I had absolutely zero experience or knowledge of the vocal instrument and in 5 months I feel like I can actually sing good. He has helped me in all aspects of singing and I will continue to work with him and with his continued instruction I hope to be in a country band soon!!
I have played in cover bands and original projects but felt that my vocals were not progressing in a healthy/stronger way. I have used vocal instructors before yet I just felt like I was doing scales and it wasn’t transposing into my vocals performance. Then I came to Jeremy Bruce and within a few lessons he had me more confident and experiencing progress in my tones and fullness of my voice. Not to mention his studio at his house is the best I have been too! Jeremy, Thank you so much!!!
Hi, I’m James! I make music on SoundCloud and have been singing since I was around 3. A bit later I decided that I wanted to take what I had done for so long to the next level. I started doing lessons with Jeremy right, smack-dab, perfectly timed, right when my voice was about to change. Jeremy helped me not lose my range on the top and added even more to my range as my voice was changing, helping me maintain the range I would have lost if I hadn’t gone with him and adding more over the next few months. I can, with a hundred percent certainty, say that if you start taking lessons with Jeremy, your entire perspective will change. I would recommend Jeremy to anyone who wants to take their singing to the next level. Thank you Jeremy!
I checked out many local guys, but finding Jeremy was an amazing blessing! Jeremy listened to my voice and was quickly able to assess my needs. He customized a plan designed just for me. Jeremy provided amazing vocal techniques that corrected major areas of my voice on the first day! On day one, I was able to get through the middle of my voice without too much difficulty. I left feeling more confident and hopeful. Each week since then, Jeremy worked my voice with kindness and patience. Yet, he maintains a high expectation of excellence. I’m wowed; I can now get through nearly three octaves with great tone and pitch! Because of Jeremy’s commitment to working my voice with excellence, friends and family can hear the difference in my singing. I’m still progressing; but, I’m in good hands, as Jeremy teaches me to combine unique style with strong vocal technique.
I highly recommend Jeremy to anyone experiencing similar vocal challenges. He’s as good as it gets! It has been a great experience for me, as Jeremy works my voice to its fullest potential!
Jeremy is as knowledgeable about the physiology of singing as he is about the psychology of singing. It is his ability to retrain the brain, replacing bad technique with proper technique and teaching, through example, that the path is often times much simpler than we realize which has had the most profound effect on me.
When I first came to Jeremy I was self-conscious, insecure and unable to get through my first bridge. In the space of six months I can now reach my second bridge, I sing more confidently with a richer tone and have an array of vocal options for songwriting I never had before. I can not recommend Jeremy enough and look forward to his continued instruction.
All three of my children (11, 12 & 12 years old) are learning guitar from Jeremy and they couldn’t be more enthusiastic about it because of him. He has such an amazing way of seeing their individual talents and needs and he is so highly educated in this field. My kids have come far in a very short period of time – just three months ago, they didn’t know a single note and now they are jamming free form together.
Jeremy has far exceeded my high expectations. I drive 32 miles one way just for our sessions and he is so worth it! We not only consider him an amazing music coach but we consider him a family friend. Whether its speech level singing coaching or guitar coaching… you will be so grateful to have him as your personal coach. We truly are!
To look back now and hear our sessions that were recorded when I first began is almost well funny… hearing myself practicing on those notes that I now don’t struggle with as much is great because of what an improvement I’ve made. It’s been really nice having close friends and family tell me how much of a positive difference in my voice they’ve noticed since starting the sessions. It’s a real good feeling to know I’m not just wasting my money for nothing. Thanks Jeremy for all your help and teachings. Thanks!
We recently compared video footage from a show he performed with his band earlier this month to footage from just over a year ago & the improvement in his vocals is incredible. We can only attribute that to his lessons with Jeremy. Just last week Jordan landed the lead role of Seymour in Little Shop of Horrors at Desert Vista High School, thanks Jeremy for helping him get there!!!
After my first lesson with Jeremy, however, that all changed. Within only a few months, my range has broadened immensely, my voice no longer feels strained when I sing, and my confidence singing in front of others has risen as well. I actually enjoy hearing myself!
Trust me… just try one lesson with him, and you won’t be disappointed.
A friend referred us to Jeremy. Within two vocal sessions, Jeremy recommended our son be checked for possible vocal cord damage. Sure enough, he had a small vocal cord nodule that had developed. We are so thankful that Jeremy’s keen ear caught his condition in the early stages. In just 4 months of working with Jeremy, Connor is well on his way to learning the proper way to sing so he can avoid future damage to his vocal cords. Thanks Jeremy!”
My daughter has been taking voice with Jeremy for almost 7 months and loves it! She loves Jeremy’s positive teaching style and looks forward to her lesson every week. My daughter has sung and performed with Greasepaint Youth Theater, Valley Youth Theater and The Phoenix Girls Chorus. It’s wonderful and reassuring to know I’ve made a wise investment in having Jeremy as my daughter’s voice instructor.
WCOPA is slated as the “Talent Olympics,” and it’s an honor to be selected to represent the USA. Over 40 countries will be present with teams ready to compete in all aspects of performing arts. Seth Riggs himself has attended the competition and said,” I am impressed with the superb level of talent.”
Bailey has been performing in front of audiences since she was five years old. She said she feels “Incredibly fortunate to have Jeremy as a vocal instructor.” Studying with him just over a year, she has made great progress in her lessons with Jeremy.
UPDATE: August 1 – Bailey Takes The Gold
11-year-old student Bailey Jasper did well at the World Championships of Performing Arts in Hollywood. She received a GOLD medal in the pop category for her version of “Pocketful of Sunshine.” She also received an Industry Award and received a BRONZE medal for an acting monolog she wrote herself.
