"Valerie and I worked together to prepare me for an audition with the Seattle Opera. She chose perfect music for my level of ability, personality and capabilities. Valerie was very thorough and knowledgeable in the vocal style required for the audition and suggested practical exercises to enhance my vocal technique. The end result was not only a call back, but a second audition which resulted in me being chosen to perform Porgy & Bess as a baritone in the chorus.
I would highly recommend Valerie to anyone seeking any type of musical endeavor. Her knowledge and experience is deep, her approach and presentation is personable yet very professional. She knows how to get results!"
--Michael "The Wanz" Wansley, Grammy Award winning Singer of "Thrift Shop" for Macklemore Touring LLC
"Valerie Williams has been a voice teacher for my son, Jeremy, for several years. He is a drummer interested in singing and writing lyrics, as well, and turned to her to develop his voice. Valerie has offered great flexibility, adapting to his interests and needs, while providing him with good instruction and feedback about his voice and the types of music he wants to perform. I would recommend her as a voice teacher to anyone, adult or youngster, and can also strongly recommend her as a fine, caring human being -- which makes so much difference."
"Valerie has been a pleasure to work with as my vocal coach. It shows that this is what she loves to do. I've realized great results, and I highly recommend her services!"
"Valerie's energy, passion for learning, work-ethic, in-depth knowledge of the voice and styles, and can-do attitude make her an exceptional teacher. I would be comfortable recommending Valerie any time."
--Nancy Bos, Regional Governor of NATS Northwest Region
