Voice Teacher, Eric Bruner
Eric Bruner teaches his students the same technique used by more than 300 of the biggest stars in the recording and entertainment industry over the past 20 years, which has amassed more than 116 "Grammys", "American Idol" winners, 7 "Tonys" and 4 Metropolitan Opera Soloists' awards.

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

For over 20 years, Eric Bruner has worked with thousands of performers who come to study with him from all over the world. He is sought after by directors, producers and artists to quickly train singers and actors to vocalize safely with more power, range, ease and control than they ever thought possible! Eric regularly judges the pre-round phase on the "Gimme the Mic" singing talent TV show on NBC Houston. In his private studio, vocal classes and in his national seminars, he routinely works with professional and non-professional vocalists of all ages performing R&B, Gospel, Rock, Opera, Musical Theater, Jazz, Pop, Country, Rap, Punk, Tejano, Contemporary Christian and more.

Eric's clients include record label recording artists, former Billboard top 10 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 over 70,000 people. They are chosen for lead roles in movies, Broadway shows, Musical Theater and Opera productions, perform in top bands, symphony choruses and movies, and do extensive commercial singing and speaking work.
Learning Vocal Technique

Eric Bruner teaches a technique which allows 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.
0ver 20 years ago, Eric began studying from several of the most successful voice teachers of that time. The techniques he learned makes singing as natural and easy as speaking. The techniques have been used to win 100's 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 works 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.

What vocal style do YOU like to sing? Rock, Musical Theater, Pop, Country, Contemporary Christian, Tejano, Foreign Languages, Opera, Jazz & Rap. Eric has successfully taught it all!
Private Voice Instruction
New students of all ages immediately find themselves at ease with Eric's relaxed, non-intimidating manner. The lessons are fun and very effective. Within the first few minutes, Eric explains the approach and begins the training process.

Almost without exception, students experience greater range and vocal ease as they are led through the first few exercises. By the end of the lesson, they have already experienced their voices singing better than they thought possible.

Students bring a blank CD or cassette to each lesson so Eric can make a personal vocal workout recording. This enables students to have an up-to-date vocal workout for practice between lessons. Sing along with the recording at home or in the car to properly apply the techniques and lessons learned. Students notice their voices getting stronger and more relaxed as they sing through the CDs or cassettes each day.

It is Eric's goal to work himself out of a job by striving to teach students to be their own best teacher. In other words, he wants his students to quickly identify their own unique vocal struggles and apply the right solution to rebalance their voice.
Eric Bruner's SING WITH POWER Vocal Master Classes and Seminars are incredibly dynamic, fun sessions that not only give participants the knowledge they need to sing with greater range, power, quality and control, they also have the opportunity to experience it first hand! In these classes, Eric teaches the same effective exercises he uses with his private clients. Audience members are amazed when they have learned how to add an entire octave to their range by end of the seminar!

The SING WITH POWER? Vocal Master Classes and Seminars are fun, affordable training sessions to learn the secrets of a stronger, more confident singing voice.

Some of the topics covered in these seminars include:
- Completely eliminating vocal breaks
- Expanding vocal range without strain
- Singing with incredible, natural breath control

Sing With Power Vocal Seminars
Online Voice Lessons
Yes, Eric teaches online singing lessons over the internet! Eric teaches primarily by hearing what singers do with their voices, so lessons by phone are highly effective. Eric has guided students from almost every continent around the world to a more powerful, solid, and comfortable use of their voices via this teaching method.

Just as with Eric's Houston-based students, new online students immediately find themselves at ease with Eric?s relaxed, non-intimidating manner. The lessons are not only fun they are efficient and have proven successful for hundreds of students. Within the first few minutes the student will understand the approach and the training process will begin.

Almost without exception, students experience greater range and vocal ease as they are led through the first few exercises. By the end of the lesson, they have experienced how their voice can be trained into working better than they ever thought possible.

Eric can make a personal vocal workout recording of each lesson and sends it to his students. This enables them to have an up-to-date vocal workout for practice. Students can sing along with the recording at home or in the car to apply the techniques and lessons learned.
Vocal Technique CDs
Knowing that many singers can't afford private lessons or have the opportunity to attend a seminar, Sing With Power has developed three exceptional Vocal training programs that guide singers through the process of gaining better range, vocal health, mastering vibrato and breath control. These CDs are a must if you can't personally study with Eric, or are unable attend a SING WITH POWER Vocal Seminars.
Your Vocal Questions
1. How easy should singing feel?
You should have the ability to sing from the bottom to the extreme top of your vocal range, with a smooth, controlled, even feel to your voice. Also, you need to eliminate any "breaks" in your voice, where you "flip" or sing in different sounding voices in your lower and upper ranges. You should keep the same comfortable feel in your voice that you have when you speak, so you don't try to "reach" for high notes, or try to push out high notes. As this balance is produced in your voice, you are able to sing with greater power throughout your entire range, without strain, and without wearing out your voice.

2. Is correct singing really as relaxed and easy on my voice as talking?
Yes! When your are talking at a comfortable conversation level, without interference from the muscles in your neck, throat or jaw, you are also on the road to a powerful, full, free singing voice.

3. Will this method of vocal study help strengthen my speaking voice as well?
Absolutely! In fact, many singers find that bad habits in their speaking voices are putting undue stress and strain on the way they sing. You cannot improve your singing voice without the benefit of also improving the natural ease and fullness of your speaking voice. This is why so many executives needing help with their professional speaking voices study with Eric.

4. How do I find a really good voice teacher?
Be sure you are choosing a teacher who understands and can demonstrate superior vocal technique. A voice technique teacher is vitally important, because without the technical ability to sing flexibly and clearly in all parts of your range, you are going to run into vocal limitations or even worse, vocal damage. A good voice technique teacher is hard to find. Just because a teacher can play the piano while you follow along, you are not necessarily learning to sing, any better. Also, if the teacher tends to just holler out instructions like "support the tone," "sing from your diaphragm," "lift your soft pallet" and "open you mouth," you know you are likely dealing with a poor teacher. If you don't feel your vocal range, tone and control improving within a few lessons, then work with a better teacher who will help you attain your goals faster. Many teachers have poor vocal technique, or they may have nice voices but are rarely successful at showing others how to achieve easily produced vocal power, range and control. Before studying with a teacher, give them a tryout. Ask them to demonstrate their vocal ability, showing you how they sing from the very bottom, to the extreme top of their range without strain, or changing from one vocal quality to another at any point.

5. When studying voice, how long does it take to sing high notes easily?
Immediately. Good vocal technique should involve no strain in the production of tone anywhere in your range. A teacher must quickly begin to vocalize you right on up and down through your extreme ranges to ensure that you don't get "stuck" in any one part of your range.

6. I tried voice lessons before, and they didn't help much. How is this approach different?
Many (dare I say, most?) voice teachers do not truly understand and primarily concentrate on teaching vocal technique. Though many try, they often do more to confuse students than to help them. Again, if you don't find a teacher that shows you the way to a more comfortable use of your voice, with more strength and range within just a few lessons, then find another teacher to work with.

7. Can a student be too old or too young to benefit from studying voice?
First of all, a student can never be too old to improve their voice through study. Just as with any age, you can learn to strengthen and control the muscles involved in singing. If you are singing with good technique, your voice will only improve as you get older. As far as younger students go, I suggest that students should be old enough to maintain focus through a half hour vocal lesson, and be able to practice at least 10-20 minutes per day.

8. What should I do if I want to sing professionally?
If you want to sing professionally, you need to start by getting your voice in top condition and under control! After that, you will need to put together a professional PR package, including a demo, a headshot promotional photo, and other promotional material.

9. Based on my own gender, should I study with a man or a woman?

For a teacher who understands the voice, and who knows how to get results for his or her students, gender doesn't matter one way or the other. In other words, there is no advantage to studying with your own gender if they can't teach both genders extremely and equally well.

Student Testimonials
Testimonials: Private Lessons

"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

"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

"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

"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!!!" - John Gardner, Actor/Singer/Performer, Dallas/Houston, TX

"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 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." - George Zener, Houston, TX

"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 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

Testimonials: Phone Lessons

"My name is Jeff DeKnegt, I'm a Recording Artist living in Albuquerque, New Mexico and I am currently taking voice lessons, via phone, with Eric Bruner. I have been singing since I was eight years old and am now 24 years old. I can honestly say that the training I have received from Eric in the past three months has radically changed my singing career! It does work. You will feel, see, and hear the difference in the first to second week of practice! I'm currently working on my first project and am now fully confident in the quality that will be put forth! So my advise to you, try it. You have nothing to lose and yet so much to gain!!" - Jeff DeKnegt, Performing/Recording Artist for CGF Records Inc.

"When I met Eric I was very impressed with his knowledge of the voice and knew that I wanted to study with him. My only hesitation in beginning study was the fact I wasn't able to study with him in his studio because of the distance from my home. So when I found out that he offers the option to take lessons via telephone I signed up immediately. I wasn't sure how studying via the telephone vs. studying in person was going to work, but figured I would give it a try. Eric has such a great ear and wonderful ability to explain exactly how to perform the exercises that you would think you were right in his studio. I would highly recommend taking Eric's voice lessons via telephone. It is convenient and just as effective as taking them in person." - Annette Dattilo - Gospel Artist/Performer

Testimonials: Artist Development

"After being an accomplished guitarist and backing vocalist for years, I was suddenly thrown into the limelight of being a lead vocalist. Let me tell you it is probably one of the hardest things I have had to do. I was always getting frustrated, not being able to hit notes that I wanted with ease or the sound wasn't coming out the way I wanted. I decided it was time to find a teacher. I tried a few but Eric was the one I felt the most comfortable with. One night after rehearsal Alex (my other Guitarist in the band) came up to me and said that he could tell now that after 4 weeks I wasn?t straining to sing and that I was sounding more natural. Eric shows you how to master control your breathing and your posture, so your exercises become more fluent and natural. After that, he will move you to the next stage of singing songs that you want to sing, while exposing you to different styles. Eric will help you correct your flaws so you do not do damage to your vocal cords. He is a very laid back individual and tries to make you feel as comfortable as possible. In short, Eric is there to help and train you to fix your problems, and help you make great strides toward your goal of becoming an accomplished and well-versed singer." - Tom Spencer, Performing/Recording Artist, Lead Singer for "Decent Into Madness"

"Being a singer/songwriter in the Houston, Texas area, I had looked high and low for a vocal coach to help with what I knew were really bad habits. After years of knowing I was singing improperly, pushing my voice in all the wrong directions, I finally found Eric Bruner. Wow, what a difference! Even at the first lesson! Now I have absolute confidence in performing in a higher range knowing that my voice won't "crack", "break" or "flip". Eric has a fantastic ability to communicate the procedures that will give your voice strength and your mind confidence to perform at your very best level. We are continuing to work on old habits with new techniques so that my next CD will be in the excellence+ category. Thank you, Eric!" - Carolyn Keene, singer/songwriter
