Jeremy has done more for me in six months than all of my previous vocal instruction over the years could do combined. I have seen my strength and range both dramatically increase but that is nothing compared to the level of confidence I now have because of his instruction.

Studio Location And Parking

  • You can view the studio location on a map and get directions by clicking here.
  • You are more than welcome to park in front of the studio or in the driveway.
  • I’ve worked with a lot of the top vocal instructors in the world and many of us teach from home. It just makes sense. Very few people ever have an issue with this, but if you have concerns, I can provide references. You can also bring someone to your lessons with you if you’d like. No problem. My only goal is to make you a much better singer.

Arrival And Lesson Times

  • Just follow the sidewalk to the front door. I usually keep the small gate open, but if it’s shut, feel free to open it. You can ring the doorbell to let me know you’ve arrived. I try very hard to be as punctual as possible. If it’s your scheduled lesson time, I will answer the door shortly, but might need a minute to wrap up a lesson.
  • If you arrive early, there might be a lesson in progress. You’re free to wait, but in the summer months, this can get hot since there is not currently an indoor waiting area.
  • If you arrive late, please realize your lesson will still end at the scheduled time if I have prior commitments and especially if I have another lesson to teach.
  • If I happen to be running late, which I try to rarely do, you will still receive your full lesson.

Payment Options

  • If you’ve scheduled your lesson(s) online, you’ve already paid for them. Thank you.
  • Checks can be made out to: Jeremy Bruce
  • You can pay with a credit card. You’ll sign the iPad screen and have the option to have a receipt sent to you as an email or text message.
  • PayPal works. My email is: [email protected]
  • You can of course pay with cash.

Ways To Save Money

  • There are times when I run specials and promotions for new people on the site via coupon codes that they can use to get a discount from their first lesson.

Love Your Lessons? Write A Review/Testimonial

If you’re happy with your lessons, I always welcome and appreciate new testimonials.

It really helps people when they have the opportunity to read about the experiences others are having while working with me. It helps build my business as well, so I’m always grateful when people take the time to write one.

If you decide to write something, you can send it to me via email: [email protected].

Your First Lesson

  • When we first meet, I will ask you some questions to get to know a little more about your experience, history, issues, goals, and also ask you about any questions and concerns you might have.
  • Talking for a few minutes in the beginning definitely helps me and can also help relax some of you that might be a bit nervous about being at your first lesson.
  • Once we’ve become acquainted, usually after just a few minutes, I will ask you to do a 5 tone scale. Don’t worry. You’re going to be fine. This will help me identify what’s happening in your voice and what we need to work on.
  • From there, I’ll begin working to get you the best results I possible can. We’ll work on scales, vowels, and all kinds of other fun stuff. Again, don’t worry, you want to improve, and I want to help you.
  • You should be prepared to sing a song as well. You can bring an instrument if you’d like, use the piano, and I also have an acoustic guitar available that you can play. You can also sing to a karaoke track or any song you want. We can access songs from my iPad or you can use your phone. We’ll use an adapter to play it through the system.
  • I love what I do, and I love seeing people improve. I can usually get results pretty quickly and I find that the majority of people not only love their first lesson, but usually want to come back, and soon.

Ongoing Lessons And Scheduling Options

  • Most people decide to continue to take lessons after their first lesson. It’s not uncommon for us to schedule another one right after the first lesson. Once people feel and hear the results, they tend to want more. Learning about your voice, progressing, and improving can be addictive. I’ve had several people tell me that their lessons are like “therapy” for them and I know I’ve felt that way too.
  • Most people tend to choose to take 30 minute lessons on a weekly basis. Every voice is different and needs vary, but I find this to be the best option for most people. Consistency is important for the voice, especially when you first start working on it.
  • Some people love taking 60 minute lessons every week. If finances permit, and focusing for that long on the voice is not an issue, this can definitely expedite your vocal progress.
  • I find that most children under the age of 12 often do much better with 30 minute lessons than they do with 60 minute ones — but there are always exceptions.
  • Some people that live farther away like to do 60 minute lessons every other week so they don’t have to travel as much. This works out nicely as well.
  • Some people like to do 30 minute lessons every other week due to busy schedules or finances. I have no problem accommodating them.
  • Some people are professionals who are really good at warming up and taking care of their voice and do lessons monthly just to ‘stay in shape.’
  • Most people really like to maintain some kind of consistent schedule, but some prefer to mix it up and use the online scheduling system to book lesson when they want to. It all works.
  • We can discuss what would be best for you and your situation. I’ll offer my input, but ultimately it’s up to you, as long as there are openings on my schedule. There have been times where I’ve been completely booked though and that’s usually when the people that have regularly scheduled times are happy that they do.

Recording Your Lessons And Progressing

  • Your lessons will be recorded for you and you will be provided with a CD when you leave the studio.
  • If you prefer, you can bring in an SD chip and record lessons to that.
  • If you’d rather record your lesson with your phone, you’re free to do so.
  • Being able to listen back to your lesson(s) is an important aspect to learning more about your voice and progressing. Not only does it make you more comfortable with hearing your own voice, but it lets you hear exactly what we’ve worked on, and it lets you rework the lesson too.
  • I highly suggest listening back and vocalizing to your lesson. People who actually do this progress so much faster. It also provides an excellent way to warm up too.
  • Finally, when you feel like you aren’t making progress or at a standstill, listening to your first lesson and comparing it to your last one can really put things in perspective for you and make you feel much better. You’ll be surprised how much you’ve improved and it will encourage you to continue to move forward vocally.

Studio Policies

  • I try to keep this really simple, but there are definitely some policies.
  • No drugs, alcohol, weapons, etc. are allowed in the studio.
  • I respectfully ask that you receive my permission if you want to take pictures or videos you plan on using online that include me in them.
  • I ask that people who are working with me sign a waiver of responsibility that allows me to not be held legally liable if they have an accident while at the studio.
  • All minors should be accompanied by an adult.
  • All lessons must be paid for either before or at the time of the actual lesson. There are no lessons given on a credit basis.
  • A minimum of 24 hours notice is required to cancel or change the time of your lesson. This gives me time to fill the slot or to make other plans. Without this notice, you agree to pay in full for the time allotted.

I began taking voice lessons from Jeremy a couple of months ago and my experience with him has been amazing!

I have always loved singing, but I was never really confident with my voice. After I began taking speech level singing from Jeremy I have felt such a HUGE difference in my voice and have seen a huge boost in my confidence level. I feel like I can hit notes that I have never been able to hit before, and for me, that’s awesome!!! I feel so blessed to have found such a GREAT vocal instructor, who pushes me to be the best singer that I can be. I am so excited to see how my voice will continue to improve over the rest of my lessons. And I am so grateful to you Jeremy for helping me get one step closer to my dream of becoming a singer. Thank you times a million!

        Frequently Asked Questions

        Do you do projects such as working with singers in the studio or working with multiple singers?
        Absolutely. I usually charge my lesson hourly rate, but if you’re scheduling multiple hours at a time, I’ve been known to offer discounts. Feel free to contact me and let me know what you need. We can discuss it and work something out.
        How much should I practice?
        You should practice as much as you perform, even more. They are not the same thing. Performance is the culmination of your vocal conditioning to meet the artistic demands you place on your voice for the purpose of communicating and projecting ideas and emotional experiences to your listener. Regular vocal practice keeps your voice aligned for efficient coordination so that any temporary diversion from good technique can be recognized easily and corrected quickly.
        What is a good dynamic level to practice?
        Mezzo forte (medium loud) at the loudest. However, you must never forget why you practice exercises. You do so to set up the correct balance between your exhaled air and your vocal cords, allowing you to sing at a speech level, and to then have your neuromuscular system live with that balance. As far as volume goes, you should only sing as loudly as you are able to maintain your balance with a steady, normal vibrato. The intensity, or loudness, of that tone will come once the muscular coordination to produce pitches freely is established.
        I hear a lot about bad coaches ruining voices. Is this a real problem?
        Sadly, yes. A bad coach can lead a singer into physically harming their vocal cords. The good news is that in many cases the damage can be undone. The other problem is teaching bad habits that can prevent a singer from maximizing their voice. It is not uncommon for us to work with experienced singers and increase their range dramatically in a handful of lessons.
        Do you teach rock, pop, opera, jazz and all genres of music?
        No – I give you the vocal coordination you need, enabling you to sing any style you want.
        Can you be too young or too old to start singing?
        Not really. If a student has a love for singing and an attention span, they can work towards improving their voice and achieving their goals.
        How many lessons do I need?
        This is very much like fitness. Some need a coach to get through a problem area; others want to continually refine their skill. We have solved range and ‘break’ problems in a single lesson, but many have been students on-and-off for their entire careers. Master-level coaches are often called in before recording sessions, or brought by singers on tour to prevent them from hurting their voices.
        Are singers born with the gift to sing?
        Some certainly are more gifted than others, but as long as you can speak and are not tone deaf (which is an EXTREMELY rare medical condition), you can sing. The music world is filled with diverse voices ranging from a Bob Dylan to a Pavarotti. Would we not have missed the one if he had decided not to sing because he did not sound like the other
        Why get vocal lessons if I can sing really well already?
        Vocal cords are like muscles and with proper training you can get a lot more out of them. With age and use your vocal cords can become sore, developing nodules which could end a career. I will get you through these hazards safely and help you mazimize your vocal potential.

        Do you do other projects, such as working with singers in the studio, or working with multiple singers?

        Absolutely. I usually charge my lesson hourly rate, but if you’re scheduling multiple hours at a time, I’ve been known to offer discounts. Feel free to contact me and let me know what you need. We can discuss it and work something out.

        WHEN I HAD MY FIRST LESSON AT THE STUDIO, I’LL BE HONEST, I WAS A BIT SKEPTICAL. I HAD GONE THROUGH FOUR DIFFERENT VOICE TEACHERS, ALL OF WHOM JUST DIDN’T SEEM TO HELP ME BECOME THE VOCALIST I WAS SEARCHING TO BE.

        Singing has always been my passion, however, I’ve struggled with pitch, a limited range, and really just not having freedom to sing the sound that I felt in my heart. 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.
