“Tim Welch is an excellent teacher who really invests in his students. Before, I trained with him, I would have never considered myself to be a singer. However, after a few classes, we began to unlock and redefine my voice. He is passionate about healthy singing, strong technique as well as the unique individual. He will change the way you work and think!

“Tim Welch not only provided me with a great groundwork of vocal technique, but also the knowledge to understand and make intelligent decisions about the health and use of my instrument. Tim makes every lesson an enjoyable experience and his genuine love and excitement for the arts provides an excellent energy from which to learn and grow!”
-Leigh Joseph- University of Colorado at Boulder-Vocal Performance (Opera)--
“Over the 5 years of working with Tim Welch, he really helped to lay the foundation for my vocal technique. I learned so much from him about the classical production of sound and I owe the majority of my technique to his teachings. I looked forward to lessons and the time spent in them were always of value. Tim inspired me to work harder and become a better musician overall.”
Patty Redifer- Current Online Singing Student with Tim for over 10 years!
“I am very pleased and amazed at how much progress I have made with lessons via Skype. It definitely is convenient not to have to leave the comfort of my home for a lesson. Tim frequently uses headphones in order to better hear nuances in my singing quality. He is a gifted and continually encouraging teacher.”
online voice lessons

Tim and staff offer “real time” online singing lessons
How does it work? First, the instructor studies your voice, then records piano accompaniments to songs for you or helps you find backing tracks online. They then sends them via email so you can sing with them in your online singing lessons. They also records vocal exercises specialized to your singing style. The TWVS staff works with singers on jazz, pop, rock, R&B, electronic music, opera and musical theatre.
