ABOUT ERIC

HIS EXPERIENCE

Master teacher, Eric Bruner, has been teaching voice lessons for almost 30 years, specializing in vocal technique (how you use your voice when you sing) allowing singers to sing any style of music with the same comfortable, confident and effortless voice they use when simply speaking.

Eric was taught by, and made an associate teacher of, Seth Riggs 30 years ago. Seth's amazing teaching helped singers like Michael Jackson, Barbara Streisand, Stevie Wonder, Josh Groban (first album only), Ray Charles, and a host of others racking up over 120 Grammy's, and it has guided Eric's approach to effective singer and teacher training ever since.

Originally from Detroit, Eric enjoyed being a "jack of all styles" singer/musician for over 15 years. He was a professional musician performing Classical, Jazz, Pop, Rock, Gospel, Musical Theater, Commercial and Studio work, along with being very involved in Contemporary Christian music. While he very much loved to perform, Eric found himself drawn much more to the joy of teaching. Vocal instruction eventually became his primary passion, and so he has poured his time and energies into teaching singers to become, well… better singers!

As a teacher of voice lessons, Eric routinely works with professional and non-professional vocalists of all ages performing R&B, Gospel, Rock, Opera, Musical Theater, Jazz, Pop, Country, Rap, Tejano, Contemporary Christian and more.

Eric's students have worked with such stars as Celine Dion, Billy Joel, Christina Aguilera, Amy Winehouse, Shakira, Alicia Keys, Britney Spears, Justin Timberlake, J.Lo, Prince, Paul McCartney, George Harrison, Ringo Starr, Paul Simon, Harry Connick Jr., Paula Abdul, and others who are signed to such labels as Sony, Capitol, MCA, High Street, Cash Money, Warner Brothers, and Atlantic Records.

His clients include record label recording artists and many students with solo and group CD projects to their credit. They regularly perform on national and international television and perform for live audiences of thousands. They are chosen for lead roles in movies, Broadway shows, musical theater and opera productions, perform in top bands, symphony choruses, movies, and do extensive commercial singing and speaking work.

"Eric is so enthusiastic about his students' progress! That is very important to me because my voice makes money for me. Being in musical theatre for 27 years, I know proper technique is everything. He has taught me that even at my age and experience, I still have to take care of my voice with proper technique and knowledge. He also showed me that I had a least 4 extra high notes I didn't even know existed for me....Thanks, Eric!!!"

"I started studying with Eric after two years of minimal progress with another instructor. Within 6 months, I had significantly improved range, power, and flexibility. After 8 months, I was doing a sound check for a church performance. While balancing the voice and instruments, the engineer kept turning my microphone down until he finally switched off his equipment and said 'he doesn't need the microphone anymore'. Eric helps you improve by giving specific, targeted exercises rather than vague imagery. His direct approach to voice instruction allows you to improve quickly."

ERIC'S METHOD

Singing should feel as easy as speech… it's that simple.

No matter if you're singing high notes, or low notes, loud or soft notes, your throat, jaw, and tongue should be as tension free and natural feeling as when you're speaking.

Eric was taught by, and made an associate teacher of Seth Riggs 30 years ago. Seth is considered by many to be the most successful voice teacher of the past 40+ years. Seth's amazing teaching helped singers like Michael Jackson, Barbara Streisand, Stevie Wonder, Josh Groan (first album only), Ray Charles, and a host of others, racking up over 120 Grammy's, and it has guided Eric's approach to effective singer training ever since.

Eric teaches a vocal technique (the way you use your voice when you sing) that allows this free and clear singing throughout a singer's range, without tension or the fear of "cracking". It can be applied to every style of music all without any strain in the voice. Any age, any experience level will advance.

The power of this singing technique is not only the result — a clear, comfortable, effortless voice — it's also the process — a process that is natural, fun and fast. It's not full of boring technical stuff that goes on for months and years.

Before Eric began teaching 30 years ago, he knew he wanted to give performers a powerful singing technique that could quickly be applied to every musical style, no matter their age or experience level. It has been his professional life ambition to provide students with just that. The technique Eric learned and now teaches allows singing to be as natural and easy as speaking. The techniques have been used to win 100's of Grammys because they produce an effortless, yet powerful sound.

All too often, many singers have vocal damage or chronic vocal fatigue facilitated by poor voice teaching. Many of these students come to Eric from other teaching studios with vocal polyps, nodules and pre-nodules, pre-hemorrhage and even vocal paralysis conditions. Eric has worked with the country's top laryngologists and vocal surgeons to help "reverse the effects" of students' chronic vocal problems by singing/speaking with an improved vocal technique.

"As a performing artist you, want two things. The first is to perform consistently, at your very highest level, night after night. The second is to perform at this desired level in a relaxed manner, void of physical tension. Eric Bruner has the tools and experience that helped me accomplish these goals by teaching me to sing and speak with confidence, with the full range and power of my true voice. You will be amazed at what you can accomplish, and you will quickly notice, as I did, the benefits on stage and in your daily life."

Jeff Miller, Actor/Performer

"I perform regularly both here in the United States and in Cambodia. It's nice to be able to get my lesson time in with Eric whether I'm in the states or out of the country. It's like having a vocal coach who travels with me!"

MASTER TEACHER

Eric has had the great opportunity to train teachers from around the world, including Bahrain in the Middle East, Taiwan, Austrailia, The United States and Canada.

Eric has encouraged many of his students over the years to become voice teachers themselves. His love for helping singers become great singers is also seen in his passion to help singers become great teachers if that is something they feel they want to pursue.

Just as he was inspired by his instrumental and voice teachers early on, he very much loves to inspire other performers to develop their skills to teach others to become better singers themselves. Singer students of his who had never really considered teaching before were soon loving a whole new aspect of music.

It was over 10 years ago that Eric envisioned developing a formal teacher certification program. The path that led to the current program began quite organically as Eric encouraged and trained interested students to become teachers. Just in the past several years he formalized program and continues to find ways to make it more impactful, accessible and ever-expanding.

The Sing With Power Voice Teacher Certification Program has taken off well beyond what Eric had even hoped, which has only doubled his gratitude as he feels he is fulfilling one of only a few purposes for his life.

"Eric helped me use my voice in ways I never imagined. Now I can sing high notes with a power behind it that I never thought possible. By mixing the head voice with the chest voice, I never feel that I am straining to reach those notes. Instead, it feels like my voice is naturally reaching them. Eric helped me have fun with my voice and try new things. He encouraged me to audition for the Houston Symphony Chorus and helped me make it. I learned so much vocal technique from him and continue to sing using the principles he showed me. Thank you so much, Eric! I couldn't have sung second alto and first soprano without you!"

Sarah Celeste, Austin, TX

"Eric, I just wanted to tell you that although I've only had two lessons with you, I have applied the advice you have given me to the shows I've been doing lately and I've made a lot of progress. I have been singing less hard and concentrating on 'pure' singing and the results have been great!"
