Hello! My name is Micah Barnes. I love to help singers deepen their craft. I coach voice and live performance technique and love to work on career strategy. We can meet at my studio or work over the internet for private sessions. I also coach group workshops wherever I travel. Lets talk about what you need and whether our working together makes sense for you. Contact me at micah@singersplayground.com

A former member of International A Capella act The Nylons, his Singers Playground Workshops have helped support thousands of artists in Los Angeles, New York and across Canada in building more powerful vocal performances and realizing their career goals!

"Micah is quite simply one of the most inspiring, exciting teachers, and people, I've ever met. I cannot say enough good things about this man! He always approached our work together with patience, empathy and exploration. There was no rush to results. It was all process and discovery. He was supportive throughout and also challenging. He helped me find truth and authenticity in my voice. I had been terrified of singing for a very long time, and he made me absolutely fall in love with it. I felt creative and free. I learned so much about acting from his work. He helped me feel how impulses in both acting and singing spring from the same raw truthful place. He is always present, always open, and is so generous with his passion for what he does. I would feel very lucky to get to work with him again" Tatiana Maslany-Emmy Award Winning Actress (Orphan Black).
