Tracey’s wealth of knowledge, along with her engaging personality, makes for a winning combination. My teen singer has improved her vocal technique, performance skills and overall confidence level. Highly recommended!

As an older adult learning to sing for the first time I really appreciate Dr. Ford’s down-to-earth and positive style.  Her teaching techniques have allowed me to make significant progress in a short period of time.  She has my unconditional recommendation as a voice instructor.

Tracey has taught me so many new techniques and tricks that really make my voice so much stronger.  These came in handy when I auditioned for a musical.  I love taking lessons with Tracey and it’s great to see the progress I’m making.
