Testimonials

Gary has been working as a Voice Teacher, Director, Performer, Vocal and Performance Coach for over 20 Years. He has worked with and helped countless Singers and Performers develop their Vocal and Performance skills.

I had never taken a voice lesson before I had lessons with Gary. He brought my Vocal Instrument to a level where it has become Stronger, keeps getting better. My Voice has developed a strong resilience, and that over many days. And through all of it the Voice remains healthy. Before I took lessons with him I would often end up with a hoarse, tired. All the practicing I was doing before I met him were not helping at all. Thank you
ONY HECKMANN
SINGER, Recoding Artist and Worship Leader at Hillsong Germany
Because of his in-depth technical work and years of experience, Gary has helped me prepare for my work in the studio and the recording of my new album. With his help in song and performance coaching I was able to find a new sound.
BENJAMIN GAIL

After a good ten years of working with you musically, I would like to thank you for your appreciative and uplifting manner. I can come to the lessons with confidence and not have to worry about failing or making mistakes. With your encouraging, positive words and explanations, you enable me to shine in my potential. The 1:1 singing lessons taught me to have the courage to sing in front of you and then in front of others. You create a constructive atmosphere that allows learning in a playful way with space to develop my own ideas. Thank you very much for that.
