What Professionals Say...
Nashville Vocal Coach for artists with Capitol, Columbia, Dreamworks, Sony and Broadway
“As a vocal clinician who has taught in over sixty cities from coast to coast, I am proud to recommend my associate Brian Farrell. His musicianship and understanding of the vocal arts make him my MVP for Calgary. He demonstrated five octaves of vocal range for me and never in my fifteen years and several thousand students have I seen a teacher of any sort with this type of voice. He is creative, innovative and hungry for knowledge. Whoever gets the privilege to work with Brian will reap the benefits immediately and for the rest of his/her life.”
