"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!!!"
"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!"
Steve Steele, Artist/Performer, Houston TX
"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!"
Amara Chinn, singer/actress
"I love taking my lessons over the internet! Before my first web session with Eric, I was afraid that the lesson might be less productive online, but I was wrong. Eric did more to improve my voice in the first 10 minutes than any teacher had in 2 or 3 lessons."
Katrina Boothe, Winnipeg, MB Canada
"Okay. That's it. I'm never driving to another voice lesson again! The online private lessons are just as good, but I don't have to fight traffic!"
Joe Longue, Atlanta, GA
"A few weeks ago I was in Colorado on a ski trip. I didn't want to miss my lesson during the trip, so I just took an online lesson. After skiing that day, I was back in my room at the lodge with my laptop, taking my lesson. It works very well."
Danielle McVaugh, Houston, TX
"Eric was the first teacher that actually showed me how to blend my upper and lower voices. Now I sing with a "connected" voice when singing rock, classical or musical theater."
Twee Vu, Singer/Songwriter
"Eric Bruner is an exceptional vocal coach. His unique background, along with his uncanny knack for 'getting into his students' heads' has made him an expert in voice training instruction, enabling singing students to access new levels of vocal control. His intense focus on detail, humorous style, and unmatched knowledge has made each of my voice lessons invaluable."
"Eric is the first voice teacher (after 5 different teachers) to finally show me how to access and thrive in my upper vocal registers."
"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
"Being a new singer and never having had lessons before, I was apprehensive when I began looking for a voice teacher. Since I wasn't a professional singer, I was worried about finding someone who would be willing to work with me to develop better control of my voice and maximize my abilities. Eric Bruner immediately put me at ease. He explained the process in detail and told me what to expect. His easy-going personality and extensive vocal and musical knowledge were very reassuring as we began to break the old 'bad' habits and replace them with proper technique. Almost immediately, I was able to add several steps to my middle range and began to close the gaps between my middle and high ranges. I also felt more power behind the notes and began to feel more confident in my singing."
Pat Davis, Houston, TX
"I have been in choir all through middle school, high school and some college, but I'd always struggled with the high tenor range and never could seem to hit those notes without being flat or yelling them out. I started to believe that my voice was meant to be baritone and never tenor. After studying with Eric and having to unlearn what I'd been taught in choir throughout my school years, I am now having a lot of fun singing in the high tenor range. I can hit those high notes with ease and not have to struggle or sound like I'm yelling. Last year, I auditioned for the Houston Masterworks Chorus and received an invitation to perform in their tenor section. I am so grateful to have found Eric's teachings and I look forward to more improvement."
Marcos Perez, Houston, TX
"Dear Eric, I just had to write and say thank you!!!!! On a whim, I ordered your set of CDs on developing vibrato this spring, and to my great surprise and joy, they worked!! It took about 3 weeks of daily exercises for me to sense a small vibrato, and now, 7 weeks into it, I can "get it" almost immediately when I start to sing. I'm floored. I thought for sure I was one of the 1% of human beings whose vocal chords would never vibrate. The breakthrough for me was to figure out where exactly the vibrato is coming from — I never knew — and your vocal exercises helped pinpoint that. Especially the half-tone wobble and the "Oh No!" exercise. Those are the two that worked best for me. I've been singing flat for decades (I'm 55), and didn't like my voice for that reason although I do love to sing. I always told myself that if I could just have vibrato, I'd sing and sing and sing. And that's exactly what I do now. I obviously came to the right place when I first started my internet search about developing vibrato, and I couldn't be happier. This is HUGE for me. Thank you!!!!"
Janet Hill, Singing like a bird up in northern Minnesota
"I was never on of those singers whose voice had a 'natural' vibrato. Eric's CDs showed me that it's possible to give nature 'a little push' and release a comfortable, free vibrato in my voice."
"Outstanding! The info, the exercises, the recording quality, the pacing - all great stuff. I'm recommending this to every singer I know, whether they struggle with vibrato or not. Just the section on getting a clean straight tone alone was worth the price 20x over!"
"I'm already getting great results and it's only been a few days!"
"My vibrato was pretty good, but there were times it didn't seem to come as easily as others, especially in my lower range. The CDs showed me how my straight tone could have a positive influence on my vibrato. This instantly released my voice. Thanks Eric!"
"I've struggled with vibrato forever. Sometimes it was there, but most of the time it wasn't. With his Perfect Vibrato Program, Eric showed me what I was doing wrong. Since working through the program, my vibrato is consistent and dependable, and it sounds really good. I'm very happy!"
"I've ordered every vocal training program out their, some from some really big names, but none of them are as comprehensive and practical as Eric's Complete Vocal Training Program…not even close!"
"I have studied with Eric and found his teaching technique to be clear and easy to work with. He has been very informative in both areas of private learning and teacher training. Despite training with other vocal coaches Eric introduced me to quite a number of new and very useful concepts that I will use both as a singer and a vocal coach. Eric is also a very easy to talk to person and a joy to study with. I look forward to working more with him."

"After my first session with Eric I was very excited about his teaching technique. I was able to see a difference in my vocal range after only a couple of lessons. Eric is wonderful in explaining how you practice each exercise. Now that I have the ability to mix the head and chest voice, I am able to sing higher notes without straining. Thanks Eric!"
Arthurene Walker, Houston, TX
"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."
