"Years ago my daughter started out a timid and quiet singer. After one of her first audition experiences, I was surprised to have a director tell us that she gave the best audition he'd heard from a girl her age."

I knew right away it was in large part due to Chelsea’s coaching on how to audition – a little extra she added to the voice lessons when she knew that my daughter was going to have an audition. Now that my duaghter is older, I am excited to give her a more comprehensive toolbox through Chelsea’s Voice Career Academy because I know Chelsea’s coaching works. And knowing all the money our daughter will likely spend on college, it was a no-brainer for us to increase the value of those college dollars by offering her access to this special course. Whatever my daughter decides to do with her voice talent, I know that this insider knowledge will help her navigate her road more smoothly.

A small sample of our incredible students:

It has been such an incredible experience so far. I have grown in so many different aspects from my musical ability to my vocal range to my knowledge of music and all the way to my confidence as a person. It has changed so many aspects of my life. Her knowledge of music was so wide and so great but she also really cared about me as a person and really wanted to see me grow.

Mariah S.

I’m excited to be a part of the vocal career academy because I feel that it will give me a great start on the career that I want to pursue. Chelsea has so much experience and knowledge and I know she will use that to give me the best insights into how to make good choices and have a successful career in the future.

Lily A.

What really stands out about Vocal Career Academy and what makes me so excited for the program is the fact that there are so many facets to being a successful musician, where a lot of useful information can’t be taught in the limited time of music lessons. I feel like I can go beyond just the music and truly become a performer prepared for the opportunities of the real world.

Sarah A.

I purchased Vocal Career Academy as an investment in myself as a teacher. I am excited to learn from Chelsea, who has proven herself as an excellent educator and performer. I love that she is willing to share her secrets and methods, and her enthusiasm for pedagogy and performance is inspiring. I look forward to completing Vocal Career Academy as a more confident and prepared teacher, using the information I gain for the benefit of my students now and far into the future.

Christina M.

Thank you so much for being Syd’s singing teacher. She has really come so far. Every time she sings, it brings tears to my eyes. I think the confidence you instill in your students is an absolute lifelong gift you have given them. To sing from their chest takes some bravery and I think that without you that confidence in singing would not be there. The confidence goes far past just singing and I notice that change in Syd. We couldn’t have dreamed up a better teacher for her to work with. Thank you so much!

Kim C.

Superb school with talented and qualifed instructors. My daughter has taken voice lessons for five years with both Mr. Paul and Miss Chelsea, and while her vocals and performance have improved tremendously, I’m most grateful for the mentorship and values taught. Through the school my daughter had opportunities with Opera Project Columbus, and there are often leadership and intern opportunities as well. Highly recommend!

Bethany A.

We got our daughter, Lily, Vocal Career Academy so she can have a realistic approach to the career she wants to pursue. We are excited for her to get an in-depth view of, not just what colleges might expect from her, but also what a life in performing arts really looks like in the long run. It’s like she’ll be getting insider tips on how to prepare as well as how to manage her career to successfully make a living doing what she loves everyday!

Still thinking about it?

You should give Vocal Career Academy a 14 day risk free shot if you’re motivated by any of the following:

You want a performance career... like... really, really badly.

You’ve loved performing for forever and it fulfills something inside of you. You can’t imagine your life without performing and you want to make sure to do everything you possibly can to make this career dream work for you. You can see the endpoint and are so motivated to do everything in your power to have this career.

You want to be a confident voice teacher and know the ins and outs of pedagogy so that you can be everything that your students deserve and more.

You love your students, are devoted to them and want to give them everything. You are motivated to continue learning anything you don’t feel confident on and don’t want to pack on stress and overwhelm and debt with getting another degree.

You want to sample a music career without investing thousands and hundreds of thousands into tuition and programs to know if it’s “right for you”.

You love music and are interested in having it be your life, but you have doubts. You’re not sure if you want the stress, you’re not sure if you have what it takes, and you hear about the instability of performing careers. Wouldn’t it be nice if there was a way to dip your toe in without actually having to go through entire degree programs, commit to thousands of dollars and have to figure out career changes later in life? You know that this course will give you clarity to know if a music career is right for you.

I’ve personally been there...

Teaching and performing have changed my life. I’ve learned a lot of things the hard way, wasted gobs and gobs of money, had my fair share of rejections until I figured it out, been an emotional basket case, and made mistake after mistake. 

 I’ve gotten three degrees and done post grad work at two universities with HUGE programs. NO ONE is TEACHING THIS….this is a huge problem because these are essential skills that are part of THE teaching and performance life.  

Without them it can cause you to completely fail, not have your dream life, not accomplish your goals. These can be the X-Factor into actually succeeding in the life you want and deserve

I’m SO passionate about this because I see a missing piece. I see something wrong with the system. So much that I’m trying to make it right in the best way that I can. So much that I’m slightly  diverting careers to create this course for YOU.

I could not be more excited to share everything I’ve learned along the way with you so that you can have the life of your dreams. 

More importantly, I want to share that with you today. 

If you’re a performer or teacher, you owe it to yourself to take a risk free plunge to see what your life could be like if you implement these trainings and lessons. 

To experience firsthand the career and the value that is truly possible, to impact the world through your music. 

I look forward to meeting you personally inside Vocal Career Academy. 

All my best,
