Last summer, I thought that my vocal development had reached a dead end. Moreover, time was running out to fix the problem before I had to audition for admission into college. Then, I heard about maestro John Davies. Two weeks later, I became his student after attending h...moreis Vocal Camp in Los Angeles. . At the camp, I realized that I had a confused mixture of bad singing habits and misconceptions about singing. In just seven days my voice changed completely. I learned quickly because Maestro Davies is a clear, practical, and very comprehensible instructor. I cherish and admire his vocal instruction because I know that he is not teaching a collection of “theories” from textbooks. Rather, his lessons comply with physics and are medically sound. Moreover, he teaches vocal techniques that he applies in his performances all over the world. This makes his instruction absolutely unique and priceless. . Over the past year, maestro Davies has taught me to think (and how to do it) while I sing so that my old singing habits disappeared and my voice continues to improve rapidly. I feel as though I have a new instrument to work with every time I have a lesson with the maestro —it’s exhilarating! After only four lessons at his studio, I recorded my “preliminary audition CD” for the USC Thornton School of Music and I was invited to audition at the USC campus soon afterward. I am thrilled because even after singing in an elite choir for almost ten years and after singing at various celebrated venues, I have never sung so well in my life! . Maestro John Davies is a teacher who is absolutely in a class by himself: he has no peers. I thank God for the opportunity to learn under his tutelage! . Chesed Escobedo.

John Davies is a remarkable vocal coach. He understands the voice like few people do. I've always considered myself priviledged and fortunate to have had Maestro John Davies as my singing teacher. I started my training with him in 1993 and have continued my vocal training...more and development under his guidance all thoughout these years. My vocal improvement with him was instantaneous and dramatic, opening up my vocal range and gaining a whole upper register. John teaches you the fundamental principles of the voice that a singer needs to know that works in synergy with the natural physiology of the body, helping you to understand the body's relationship with the voice thus enabling you to enhance the voice and control it. I have found he has been able to draw upon his vast experience and expertise to guide and mentor you through your vocal development and career. A career that John has certainly been able to help me with in advice and direction being himself a professional performer on a world stage. Because of his extensive knowledge of the voice, John is also an expert at recording the voice in a recording studio and has been the sound producer of 2 CDs I have made in my career. I thoroughly recommend John Davies as a vocal coach. He has helped tranform my voice to high standards and as such my career.

I found John Davies a few years ago by complete accident and once I realised the calibre of his career, I was astonished that he even agreed to take on a complete beginner like me. He has taught me an amazing amount about how to use my body to create beautiful amazing sound...mores and develop it to be able to sustain any level of careerI wish to choose. As an exceptional added bonus for me John was able to help me with my chronic illness (Fibromyalgia) through singing using his techniques. One year after starting with John I was well enough to start my own small business, which I now have a hand-full of staff and growing rapidly. At the same time I was blessed to be able to join the esteemed Sydney Philharmonia Choir and perform in the Beautiful Sydney Opera House several time during 2010. If you are wanting to sing in any form, a solid foundation in Opera will allow you to sing anything. I love Musical theatre and hope to soon audition for local productions and as a Mezzo-Soprano there a many roles I will be able to try for. I have recommend John to anyone who has the desire to become the best they can be.view less
