  • Elizabeth Prescott

    Crystal is a highly skilled instructor with years of professional experience and training. She is also one of the most caring teachers I've ever known, and she is 100% present with you every moment of every lesson. She's also a fantastic accompanist and is very helpful in suggesting material and coaching as well as vocal technique. With all of her vast knowledge about the voice and the breathing mechanism, she continues to add to her skills and knowledge all the time, and is unusually knowledgeable with regard to vocal pathologies. Her pricing is very fair, especially considering her extensive training and variety and depth of skills. I highly recommend her to singers of all ages!!

  • Linda Rose Linnebach

    CrystalVoice is a one-stop-shop for anyone who truly wants to improve their voice. Crystal is an exceptional voice teacher who, without reserve I highly recommend. She is a “stand out” from the other voice teachers; she specifically helped me access my potential and more freedom by offering breathing coordination and MFR methods in my sessions...truly liberating!

  • Chase graham

    She’s very personal and cares about your vocal health so you can improve your voice but are also able to keep your voice as you get older. 10/10 would recommend going to her

  • Nicole Barnhart

    Crystal really understands vocal function and is able to teach it! She has been an imperative source of support and re-training during my vocal rehab from muscle tension dysphonia. She is compassionate, patient, and extremely knowledgeable. I highly recommend her for anyone looking for ways to improve their voice and breathing, whether they’re a beginning student or a seasoned professional looking for fine tuning. You will learn something new at every lesson!
