Synergistic Singing Austin, TX
I hold my B.A in Voice from the University of North Texas. I was a member of UNT's A Capella Choir, ranked among the top five undergraduate choirs in the nation. I have worked with a range of vocal teachers from many backgrounds, from a metropolitan opera star to voice science academics to professional singer-songwriters.
This breadth of experience and research over the last 11 years has enabled me to refine the art of teaching someone how to sing so that it is effective and feels good for the singer to do, no matter where they start. For me, seeing the joy on a student's face when they are able to stay in tune for the first time, or hearing their excitement on the phone when they tell me they've won a $20,0000 college vocal scholarship, makes it easy for me to say that I really love what I do!

Testimonial by Andi Spencer
As someone with only a small amount of vocal training and knowledge, I needed an experience that would cater to my current skill-level and encourage me to move forward. Chris made me feel completely comfortable and emphasized the importance of singing naturally. Chris offered me simple, concrete explanations of how the voice works and why we implement certain singing exercises - this makes our practice together fun and natural, and reveals the relative simplicity in applying certain vocal techniques. He was very personable, consistently offered more explanation when needed, and invited me to help shape the lesson experience by asking for my input and feedback. Most importantly, he gave me real recommendations that I could start applying immediately! Chris is very knowledgeable - I would definitely recommend his services and plan to have more lessons with him!

Inspired! Excellent! Highly Recommended! I was very impressed with Chris. I left excited and informed. He worked with me from where I was and I left with so much more than I imagined. I am inspired. I look forward to my next lesson. I highly recommend Synergistic Singing.

Chris has helped me exponentially in many regards. In the short time I've taken lessons with him, Chris has already introduced me to the world of belting (healthfully of course) and has shown me singing techniques I had never heard of or tried before. He is also helping me explore my more dramatic side by incorporating expressiveness and emotions into my singing. I cannot thank Chris enough for the encouragement and support he's pouring out, enabling me to grow not only as a singer, but a performer as well.

Hello Chris, Just a quick note of thanks for all of your hard work and time that you spent working with Kelly over the past few months. He truly benefitted from you and your knowledge and skills. I greatly appreciate it Chris.
Testimonial by Rose McGee
I think that Chris is a GREAT teacher. He tailored his lessons to meet my needs, and was quite professional during our sessions. His method of teaching breathing first, rather than start right in on Me and Bobby McGee, surprised me at first but it is very effective. I couldn't recommend him more.
