“ Micah came into my life as a voice coach; someone that I had hoped would provide me with practical tools to improve my technique. That, he did but I got so much more. Micah's intuitive nature and passion for the real, deep work is largely what has given me the vocal freedoms that I experience today. I consider Micah a mentor, a healer, and in some respects, a guru. Now I can express my gratitude every day through a new, powerful and versatile instrument that reflects the truth of who I am. I doubt I would have gotten here so soon without Micah Barnes. ” ” - — Jess McAvoy

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

Micah caters his lessons and techniques to each student, insuring that everyone not only finds their voice, but also has the tools to make the most of it. I still use Micah's techniques and teachings today when I’m warming up for a show or a recording session! ” - Josh Taerk

"I am a big believer in vocal maintenance and development, and Micah Barnes delivers. There is no doubt that my performance has improved under Micah's guidance. Improved vocal confidence, increased stage stamina, and reduced tracking time in the studio are all concrete results that I have seen from just a few sessions. I've worked with a lot of producers and performance coaches but these sessions have by far been the most effective training sessions that I have had the pleasure to be in. 10/10 would recommend to any vocalist, regardless of current ability." ” - Dustin Bird

“A few years ago I went to Micah for stage performance guidance, and if I hadn’t, I wouldn’t be where I am today. Micah found ways to break me out of my shell, and allow myself to use every ounce of creativity available. He showed me how to connect to a song lyrically and emotionally, and through physical presentation. I am thrilled to say that he has strongly assisted in shaping who I am as an artist today!”” - Avery Raquel
