About Tiffanie Hicks
My name is Tiffanie Hicks. My passion is to help singers of all ages develop confidence in their voices by teaching them how to sing the styles of music that they love with more power, larger range and poised stage presence.
I have taught over 100 students ranging from ages 6 to 50. Whether you enjoy singing Broadway showtunes, classical arias, pop, rock, jazz or Christian praise music, I can help you have the voice you have always wanted in a comfortable and fun setting!
Lessons are 30 for minutes and cost $20 each, but your first lesson is free – so contact me!
Questions and answers
- How did you get started?
I have been singing in church since the age of three, and in high school became very interested in the jazz, pop, and gospel genres of singing. I decided to study vocal performance in college and had to learn how to sing classical arias and operas which was a huge challenge for me. I benefited from learning how to sing with proper technique and was able to carry that technique into the genres of music I enjoyed singing. After earning my degree, I have directed choirs, musicals, coached soloists in musical theater classes, helped singers prepare for school of music auditions, and helped over 100 students prepare for numerous vocal recitals and competitions.
- How many projects do you average in a year?
We usually have two recitals ever year in the Winter and the Spring. Students will prepare to perform in front of their peers and an audience.
- What certifications or professional affiliations do you have?
I studied vocal performance and church music and Azusa Pacific University in southern California. After deciding that I really missed having a jazz program, I transferred to UNC and finally got my B.A. in vocal music from Boise State University. I have received awards for outstanding jazz soloist at the Lionel Hampton Jazz Festival as well as the Boise State jazz festival.

- What brands or products do you work with?
We often record lessons so that you can hear your progress over the course of time. We also try to use microphones from time to time to learn how to use them and a piano for vocal exercises. Depending on the style of music you like to sing, sheet music or karaoke tracks will be needed for lessons.
- What do you wish customers knew about your profession or trade?
Taking voice lessons is not only beneficial for your vocal chords. Students learn how to gain confidence in themselves, build their self esteem and learn how to be in front of an audience and be comfortable in their own skin!
- What would you recommend customers looking to save money?
For every student that you refer to me, I will give you one free lesson, and don't forget- your first lesson is ALWAYS free!
- What questions should a customer ask before hiring a professional in your trade?
How much do lessons cost?
What kind of music do you teach?
Are there vocal recitals?
Can I record my voice lessons?
How long are voice lessons?
- What are the most frequent questions you get from customers? What are the answers?
How old do you have to be to start lessons?
Students can be as young as 6 to start lessons. Even though their vocal chords are still developing, they can start to learn how to sing with their diaphragm and breathe correctly. Learning how to sing with good technique that young will prevent them from developing bad singing that are hard to break later.
How long should you take lessons?
The longer you take lessons, the more beneficial it is. Just like working out helps improve your muscle tone and needs to be maintained in order to keep results, vocal chords also need to be exercised and used often in order to maintain the best result.
- Tell us about the project or job that you are most proud of (in the last 12 months).
Some of my students have gone on to pursue singing as a career which is always exciting for me! I have one student who has decided to move to New York and study Broadway theater and another student who is working on recording her own album!
- What services do you provide your customers after the work has finished?
Once you have learned proper techniques in singing, you will be able to carry them with you into life into all different venues of voice performance. If you do not take voice lessons, there is risk of damage to your vocal chords, and bad technique can limit your vocal abilities, which is why it is so important to get voice lessons and keep working on what you learn!
