  • Ryan Rappis

    Tom has been a great musical mentor and vocal coach throughout the years. He understands how to make a successful vocalist put their best performance on.

  • Michael Nicloy

    Tommy has been a friend and music business mentor to me for many, many years. He has lived and worked in two of the major music cities in the US (Nashville and Austin) and has worked with well known artists and indie up-and-comers. He knows his way around not only the business side, but the recording studio, the live venue, the travel, the songwriting, the band dynamic; pretty much anything about the entertainment industry He's a true pro that brings a positive attitude to his work that is fun and infectious among his colleagues and students. I highly recommend working with Tommy Held!

    I have worked with Tommy several times in the past. He has a natural, not intimidating, way of approaching vocal performance. He has helped me immensely with vocal inflection and breath control. I highly recommend working with Tommy.
