What Clients Say

After two sessions with Judy, I’m definitely seeing a difference in the quality of performances.  She’s very thorough and committed to making sure she helps me work through the current struggles I’m having with my voice.
Julienne Jacobs, Skype student 2020
I’ve been taking singing sessions with Judy for over a month now and I cannot be happier.

She had a lot of knowledge in her field and has really helped me with my vocal cords. She is also very professional and easy to work with.

Would highly recommend Judy
Kim Ha, San Francisco based Skype student 2020
Thank you so much for working with me over the last year… I feel like I have singing superpowers now compared to where I was, especially in being able to hear and recreate sounds.
Trevor S, Portland Oregon student 2019
After having six 30 minutes singing lessons with Judy, my singing abilities have markedly improved! I’ve noticed the change audibly when I sing and when I listen to old recordings.
From the start, we hit the ground running, diving into my problem areas, but of course never without a proper warm up! She uses her perceptiveness and expertise to diagnose issues quickly as well as prescribe exercises that address them.
The improvement in my skills are very much worth the investment and saved me lots of time and vocal damage which I would have experienced had I tried to figure things out on my own. I’m truly grateful for what she has enabled me to do with my voice and look forward to working with her in the future.
Chara Bui, Facetime student 2018
I was impressed with the first email communication and even more so with the first session! She boosted my confidence level and gave me immediate confidence which made me feel comfortable right from the beginning!
I highly recommend Judy!

Judy is hands down the best vocal coach I have ever had.

Within my first 3 lessons I was singing notes I thought I could never reach, safely and with correct technique. I have worked on songs with Judy I thought I could never sing with what I thought was “my” limited range….but no more!

Judy has all the tools to increase your range, quality of sound and bring the songs you work on to a performance level.

Elizabeth Beau,
I’m thrilled to be working with such a professional, experienced and supportive teacher such as Judy! My goal was to start singing and performing in public again. I was concerned that as an older singer perhaps it was too late for me to improve my voice.
Right away Judy dispelled that notion. She made me feel as though I can absolutely become a better singer and reach my goals. I appreciated the fact that during our initial consultation she asked me about myself and my singing history. It’s obvious that Judy really cares about her students. During my first lesson I could hear that I was singing better. Each week I’m becoming more and more confident in myself. Aside from the warm up exercises Judy has taught me about how the vocal cords  work and how to keep my voice healthy.
My voice sounds better and stronger than ever. Judy has designed a training program geared toward my particuar style as well as short and long term goals. I can’t thank her enough!
Charlotte Jordan, FaceTime student 2018

Judy is the most amazing vocal coach!

My daughter has had 3 vocal coaches and by far Judy surpassed them all. And she does it remotely via FaceTime or Skype in your own home which is a lifesaver and a wonderfully comfortable and personal experience.

Highly recommended!!

Anissa Branch

“Judy is the most supportive, professional and engaging vocal coach anyone could hope for. She tailors each lesson to the individual singer’s need and ability and her dedication and patience brings out the best in her students.

Judy has been my vocal coach for the past two years and I have experienced first hand how her incredible knowledge of tools and techniques increases vocal skill and confidence.

Highly recommended!”

Catherine Nemec

“Judy, You did it again! Annika came out radiating! I remember when I first called you, you said you build confidence and that is exactly what I LOVE seeing when she leaves you!

ou are really a special person in her life and I thank you from the bottom of my heart for the difference you make!”

Terry Nelson

“Hi Judy,I just wanted you to know that Daniela did great in the talent show last night. Francis and I were really impressed with her. There were a lot of singing acts, but Daniela seemed much more rehearsed and on key than most.

Thanks very much for getting her ready! We’re looking forward to hearing more singing from her”

Amy Burrows

“SHE GOT THE LEAD!!!!!!!! Yay!!!! Thank you so much for all your wonderful coaching and instruction. Today, she’s Belle in the Middle School, tomorrow… who knows? Maybe Broadway! “

The Judy Malings Voice Studio is now exclusively online utilizing Skype or FaceTime.

Students will now be able to develop their vocal technique, troubleshoot specific vocal problems, extend their ranges, and work on repertoire in the comfort of their own homes, from any location in the world.

In this method, whether a vocalist is looking to fix a particular issue, increase range and stamina, whether needing a few troubleshooting lessons or considering long-term sessions, the Judy Malings studio is now available to students online with Skype and FaceTime.

The students need a fast internet connection, a webcam and a mic (built in the computer is usually fine). All students will receive an audio recording following each session, which allows for assessment and an opportunity to practice exercises between lessons.

The studio is pleased to offer online singing lessons via Skype and FaceTime, believing that online work is an increasingly effective tool in a serious approach to singing.

There is limited space available.
