Chris Berry

Owner of EMS

Singing has always been a passion of hers, but her heart is in teaching and inspiring others to follow their dreams.
She takes a contemporary approach with her voice lessons – coaching students to sing in the styles of rock, pop, blues and country. 
Students pick songs of their choice.
With Chris’s guidance, the song is pulled apart and put back together like a puzzle using vowel shapes, 4 basic tones, breath control, etc.
The singer is recorded and suggestions are made as to how to improve the final product.
