“Wendy Parr is an incredible vocal teacher. She is also one of the most encouraging and positive people i have ever had the pleasure of knowing. She understands the human voice on a level I didn’t know existed. Every time we work together i learn so much! She opens my mind to incredible ideas and concepts! I am so grateful to have Wendy in my life as a teacher and a friend. Anyone who studied with her would definitely feel a huge difference in their voice and outlook on singing. Wendy is the best!”

I’m beyond grateful to have met Wendy in this lifetime. She taught me so much about my voice and has completely transformed the way I sing for the better. She has a unique gift of being able to connect on a soul level, and from there it’s as if she knows exactly how to express her knowledge in a way that is helpful to that individual. I’m personally a visual learner and she really helped me feel much more comfortable singing notes that I never thought were possible for me to sing prior. If you don’t feel confident singing, taking lessons from her will quickly help your insecurities vanish. She has a giant heart, deep wisdom, and just being around her is truly a healing experience.

I started training with Wendy when I was 15 years old. She always made me feel like I was home when I was in her studio. Her supportive approach taught me confidence through technique. I work with Wendy before all of my productions and she is instrumental in my growth as an vocalist.

My first lesson with Wendy was gifted to me from a friend. Up until that point, I had never sung my own songs. I didn’t have a singing voice, and there was nothing anybody could do to change that. And now, 5 years later, I sing professionally. Life is nuts.
“You are a singer.” Wendy said this over and over again in my first lesson. There was something about my visits to her that kept me coming back, like she found this little thing inside of me that said “yes” and that thing kept growing and growing. My dreams have seriously come true, regardless of how cheesy that sounds. Wendy changed and is still changing my life. So I guess this is a message to all you “non-singers” out there. Go see Wendy Parr.

I’ve been seeing Wendy for about 5 years now, and she has, without a doubt, made my voice stronger than it’s ever been. Before Wendy, I’d reach and strain for high notes to a point where I’d be hurting after a set…and it got so bad that I would lose my voice for about a week before being able to sing again. Once I began seeing Wendy, I learned that nothing about singing should be forced, and that in the most natural state, your voice range is seamless from high to low. I started looking at singing as an effortless process, and the exercises that Wendy has given me, has allowed me to explore areas of my voice I never knew existed. I can’t thank Wendy enough for how she’s changed my voice! And I cannot recommend Wendy enough to any aspiring singer. Her method works! And I’m so thankful she came into my life when she did.

“Wendy has been nothing but a joy to work with the past two years for our management client Louis Futon. She really knows how to point out the areas the artist needs work in and focuses on those areas with unique techniques leading to noticeable results after the first few sessions. Wendy is my top choice for anyone needing vocal or songwriting lessons."

Many things make Wendy Parr special. As a friend she's fiercely loyal and deeply caring. As a Woman, she is driven by extremely high moral standards and a passion for equality and basic human rights. As a pixie... she's magic and a just the right amount of crazy!
Wendy Parr is one of the greatest gifts I've ever received. Her teaching goes far beyond technique and into an entire universe of infinite possibilities. After continually practicing Wendy's teachings, I now feel completely liberated and free almost every single time I sing, and the times I don't feel so free, I simply go back to one of the many tools Wendy has taught me. Within minutes, I find my joy, I begin to relax and my voice effortlessly follows. Wendy taught me to dance with my voice, giving me complete vocal freedom. I am forever grateful.

“I have been working with real singers and recording artists for over 25 years, and no voice teacher/coach has ever had powerful, consistent results like Wendy Parr. In addition to the remarkable technique she imparts to her clients, she is unique in her ability to get singers to dig deep into their souls and bring out every ounce of nuance and power he or she could be sharing with themselves and the world.”
- Ron Shapiro
It’s been an incredible joy being able to work with Wendy Parr over the past 2 years. She took our management client Tyler Minford, who goes by Louis Futon, who is an electronic artist, who at the time of first working together was exclusively a producer with very little writing and singing experience.
She has since laid the foundation for him to be a much more well rounded artist with very impressive writing and vocal skills. He has been able to apply his newfound writing skills to all of his collaborative sessions since. Every single lesson he has taken both over Skype and in person have increased his skills and given him the proper practice routines to improve skills between sessions. She has been an instrumental part of his developmental process. I would highly recommended Wendy to anyone looking for a friendly, motivating vocal and writing coach that will get you results.

“Every single time I’ve had a lesson with Wendy I’ve become a better singer. I’m not exaggerating – every single time. I still warm up before shows along with our recorded lessons and I’m forever grateful to her for helping me improve. A few more years of this and maybe I won’t suck!”
