I recommend! Lucas Avery Voice Studio
Welcome! Since 6/1/2020, RC Vocal Studio is now Lucas James Voice Studio!
I can personally recommend Avery as an excellent voice teacher. Avery worked with students in my studio for several months before the COVID-19 shutdown. During that time, Avery took over my entire studio and worked with all my students and the results blew me away.
My students improved so much over Zoom online lessons, I was so impressed! Avery really took to online lessons, using them to not only help people improve their voices, but their confidence with working with video (so important for a singer), music in general, and in themselves. They improved their voices and confidence so much! So it worked out perfectly for Avery to take over my studio. I can't say enough good things about them.

"Avery has been a breath of fresh air in my journey to improve my voice. As someone who has an array of bad habits when it comes to my voice, I am pleased with how patient and supportive Avery can be. They often tell about relevant experiences from their own training, and, aside from the initial warm-ups, we develop exercises during the lessons that are designed to help in addressing specific issues and develop good habits. Lessons with Avery are fun and we often have a few good laughs. I feel that they are fully engaged when it comes to guiding me in a way that will help me to continue to understand and develop my own voice." - Google Review from Konner
Avery on teaching Voice: " I believe in nurturing the voice and meeting it wherever it is on any given day, at whatever level of ability or functionality. The only way to grow is to give yourself the space to explore it without self imposed expectations. A solid foundation of classical technique can strengthen any style and give the singer the skill and confidence to perform under a variety of circumstances."
