    Brandon is a great voice instructor. He is very knowledgeable regarding singing techniques, breathing and maintaining stamina while performing. He is very approachable and keeps the class fun and exciting. My daughter has grown so much as a singer and the performer since joining the star factory team in 2017

    Star Factory provides a comfortable environment for singers and songwriters. Brandon is a phenomenal vocal trainer that knows how to push singers to the next level. You'll go in a singer and come out a sanger. My vocal technique and range has improved significantly since I began taking classes there. If you're an aspiring singer I'd recommend you go to the Star Factory. You won't be disappointed.

    It’s a no judge zone. Brandon is very good at what he does. He works very hard to make sure his students are using their full potential.

    Star Factory for me is like home away from home. Everyone is super friendly too. I love going to class because it’s a guaranteed good time and I learn so much. I’ve learned great techniques, and exercises that have helped my singing voice tremendously. Brandon is wonderful. He isn’t afraid to tell the truth and is really good at making people feel comfortable and welcomed. I’ve been at Star Factory for 2 years and I’m glad I made the decision to come here.

What is your typical process for working with a new student?

My process is to listen. Listen to their voice. Listen to their story. Listen for what’s right. Listen for what’s wrong. Listening is the first step I take towards connecting with my students. That way, I get to customize my approach with each student’s individual voice. 

What types of students have you worked with?

I’ve helped over 2,000 singers find their voice by starting with technique, and graduating them through full vocal performance training. The youngest I’ve worked with has been 7 years old. The oldest has been 68 years old. I’ve helped beginners just getting started as well as seasoned signed recording artists. The genre is mostly pop, soul, R&B, gospel and folk. 

What questions should students think through before talking to teachers about their needs?

What would you give yourself as a vocalist on a scale from 1 to 10? 

How long are you expecting your vocal training journey to last?

Are you just looking to improve or do you have career aspirations?
