"I've been taking lessons from John for only a few months, when I started I told him my goals and what I wanted to do with a music career. They were, and still are, huge goals, but with ever lesson I get closer and closer. John isn't just some newspaper ad vocal teacher, everytime I go to him I learn something new, or have an outstanding breakthrough, to be honest, I never thought people could have a connected voice unless they were born with it. I have previously been singin for years before I started with John, and in just weeks, my voice improved drastically!!! Come to John and let him coach you, it's never a judgemental environment, the exercises are explained and put into examples, there's just no telling how good of a teacher he is, I wouldn't be near as good as I am now if not for him thank you so much!"
"I just had my first lesson with John Finley. I discovered that I needed to use my lungs like they were made for, instead of the strange way I learned previously. Once I did that, my breath capacity increased. I also realized that when I sang loud and strong, I was able to sing for a longer amount of time before I had to take a breath again. I discovered through his diagrams of the vocal cords, that breathy singing happens when there is air leaking through the vocal folds, like a balloon with air escaping from the top. But when you sing connected, the vocal folds are close together. I learned a great deal and I am excited to share my new found knowledge with my own voice students. Thank you! I can't wait to learn more next week.
