  • Voice Teacher Kevin Richards
    Master Singing Instructor Kevin Richards

    Hi, My name is Kevin Richards and I'm one of the most respected vocal teachers on the planet. With past & present students ranging from Broadway singers to major recording artists, I've has carved a unique niche among the world's Rock, Pop & Metal musicians.

    With a career spanning over 20 years I've sang to countless thousands of people and worked with artists from Autograph, TNA, Dokken, Twisted Sister, SR-71 and with students from all over the world.

    I've learned a lot about being onstage, not only by toiling away on the local club circuit averaging 150 shows per year in the mid/late 1980's, but while touring the Far East and Europe in 1996 as lead singer in my rock band 'Eleventh Hour'. A tour that was highlighted by an appearance at an outdoor music festival in Seoul, Korea in front of 15,000 people opening for label mates 'Royal Hunt'. I learned what works and what doesn't work pretty quickly with that many shows, in front of that many people; it ended up being a great classroom and proving ground for me.

    With this multi-layered background under my feet, I definitely have something to offer other performers who simply want to be the best thery can be, not only vocally but professionally. I've learned by doing, and know the importance of connecting with an audience. If the audience doesn't enjoy watching you, then what's the point of them coming to see you perform?

    I sum up my vocal teaching style this way; I want to help singers and musicians of all types deliver the best performances they can by engaging, maintaining and delivering a great show night after night. I've learned a lot in my many years in this crazy business, and I'm excited about passing that on to any artist that wants to excel as a performer.

    In 2008 I was awarded the coveted "Subject Matter Expert" by the #1 community for singers, "The Modern Vocalist". I am very honored to be included into such a noble group of voice teachers.

    That same year I also founded 'Rock the Stage' where I teach voice and stage performance. I am also a co-founder of "The Complete Vocal Challenge", an intensive, week long program of seminars, master classes and one-on-one instruction in the latest modern singing techniques along with Seattle Vocal Coach Robert Lunte.

    2010 saw the release of my groundbreaking 2 module vocal program geared for the Rock/Pop vocalist "Breaking the Chains"; now sold in over 90 countries. No other singing course out there was made specifically for the modern Rock and Pop singer in a language that spoke to them directly. I feel I filled a wide gap in voice instruction with my flagship vocal course.

    Mr. Richard's innovative vocal teaching approach focuses on three skills that all modern singers seek to achieve; the ability to seamlessly blend chest and head resonances through powerful support and natural resonance, and finally eliminating all constriction or strain within the voice and create a full and powerful complete singing voice. Mastering these "blending" techniques, results in amazing range with complete vocal freedom with convincing, room vibrating power.

  • Intensive Training with Voice Teacher Kevin Richards

    A "vocal intensive" is designed to really help experienced singers zone in and focus on specific areas of the voice. This program is geared to teach you how to connect or "blend" your chest & head resonances together to create a seamlessly connected voice.

    The standard format is to take a 3 hour lesson per day, divided by how many hours you purchase. The benefit of 100% supervised practice allows singers who train this way to improve rapidly with solid advancement in their vocal technique in a very short amount of time. Singers routinely fly in from around the world to train here like this. They've come from Germany, France, England, The Netherlands, Austria, Mexico, including various states all over the United States... to name a few.

    Students travel to beautiful New York City where they train in 1 on 1 private vocal sessions with Kevin Richards in a facility with a live PA system. This is real world training.

    Here's what you'll learn during your weekend intensive vocal sessions:

    • Proper warm ups for the voice - morning & pre-performance
    • How to get into your singing voice via the "resonant track"
    • Connecting and blending your registers to create one seamless voice
    • Developing power and projection without tension
    • Extreme high pitch exercises
    • Proper microphone technique and stage presence

    Your intensive singing lessons can be arranged to accommodate some morning or afternoon sight seeing while you're here. I will also suggest some local area hotels so you're never far from your lessons or from popular tourist attractions. Getting around NYC is easy and affordable with our mass transit system and/or taxi service.

    There's no time to improve your voice - like now!
