About this pro

   I have been a vocal coach in the Mid South for almost 40 years. Unlike many teaching voice today, I actually have a degree in voice. For 25 years, along with being a private vocal coach, I was also the choir director at, at the The time, the largest high school in Memphis. I have worked with literally thousands of voices from the very young, to what some would say, well seasoned. I work with people right where they are. By that, I mean that there is no standard someone has to reach in order to work with me. I listen to each individual voice, note areas that need more attention, and we go from there. Can I make everyone a solo singer? No. Run from anyone who says they can. What I can do is help everyone sing better than they do now. But remember that the whole process depends on not just the level of instruction, but how hard the learner is committed to working, daily practice, and willing to change incorrect singing habits. This whole venture is done together for your Benefit. I have students, and former students, that are singing all around the world, on and off Broadway, Broadway touring companies, cruise ships, Las Vegas, theme parks all around the world, musical theater, on tour with celeberties, and recording artists. Whatever your goal, to be in the music business, make the school choir, audition for for a musical, or just feel better singing in church, I would be honored to help you on your journey. (Plus, it should be fun!)

  The thing I enjoy the most, is watching how people’s lives change. I am under no illusion that everyone that takes voice from me is going to end up with a career in music. But universally, the things that everyone takes with them are some of the things that matter most in Life. I see children, and adults alike, begin to develop a keen sense of self-esteem. I see confidence, sometimes that starts very low, begin to gain ground step by step, and sometimes leap by leap. I see people beginning  to trust themselves and others. My motto is “The Magic is in The Connection”. I see people beginning to make connections with others, eye to eye, heart to heart. I see people step away from being small and step into living large. I see all these things and so much more, and these are things that lead to a happier, richer, rewarding life, no matter what you do or become.

    Cindy Barrett was my vocal coach for 8 years. When I started at 12 years old I had some natural ability but no clue how to be a performer or use my voice properly. Over the course of my training Cindy took me from a young amateur singer to an award winning vocalist. I fully believe that she’s the hardest working vocal coach in Memphis. Without her I know that I would not be the person, performer and vocalist that I am today. The attention to detail that she puts into her student’s training is nothing short of incredible. I can’t recommend her enough.

    Absolutely changed how I performed, emoted and felt the music from my very first meeting with Cindy. She completely transformed me as a vocalist, recording artist and stage performer. I owe so much of my career highlights to Cindy! The amount of times I find myself quoting her while directing or coaching now is laughable! Cindy is amazing!!!!
