I started with absolutely no experience and came out with all the tools to further develop my voice. As a producer, I work regularly with singers and rappers so my lack of vocal knowledge often left me in a frustrating position. Now when working other singers I can effectively communicate and demonstrate ideas for them to try. Nothing beats real life feedback from an instructor who helps you discover what's special about your own voice. - Keshava, Singing student
