“I am glad I found out about Jacob Burton! He has made a big difference in how I approach my craft. I have been singing for many years and now that I have Jacob coaching me I know I will be able to sing for many more.”

“5 out of 5 stars!! I found Jacob after a good friend recommended him for vocal lessons. I had just been diagnosed with a vocal nodule at the time and was in dire need of careful vocal rehabilitation. I am a professional singer and was understandably scared and worried about the future of my career. Jacob was a constant source of encouragement and challenged me to care for my voice in ways I had not previously been doing. Even after it was decided that surgery was required for total healing, Jacob’s advice and vocal exercises remained and continue to remain a vital part of my daily routine. As of today, I am fully healed!”

"JACOB IS REALLY AN OUTSTANDING TEACHER AND JUST A GENUINELY GOOD GUY. I'VE BEEN STUDYING WITH HIM FOR OVER A YEAR NOW AND I'VE MADE SIGNIFICANT STRIDES IN MY VOCAL DEVELOPMENT. HE'S BEEN THE SOLE REASON WHY I'VE BEEN ABLE TO TAKE THE LEAP FROM A BACKUP VOCALIST TO A LEAD VOCALIST.HE HAS AN INCREDIBLE BREADTH OF KNOWLEDGE ABOUT THE ACTUAL PHYSIOLOGICAL WAY THE VOICE WORKS WHICH HELPS YOU UNDERSTAND THE PURPOSE OF THE EXERCISES HE RUNS YOU THROUGH AND HOW TO TAKE CARE OF YOUR VOICE. AT THE SAME TIME, HE WON'T BORE YOU WITH THE DETAILS IF THAT'S NOT YOUR INTEREST.HE'S ALSO VERY FLEXIBLE WITH HIS LESSON PLANS. IF YOU'RE UNSURE OF YOUR GOALS BUT GENERALLY WANT TO BECOME A BETTER SINGER THEN HE'LL GUIDE YOU. AT THE SAME TIME, IF YOU HAVE ANY SPECIFIC TECHNIQUES OR GOALS YOU WANT TO ACHIEVE THEN HE'LL TAILOR THE LESSONS APPROPRIATELY.LIKE I SAID AT THE BEGINNING, HE'S JUST A GREAT GUY AND REALLY HELPS YOUR CONFIDENCE WHICH IS ARGUABLY THE NUMBER ONE FACTOR IN SEPARATING A GOOD PERFORMANCE FROM AN AMAZING PERFORMANCE.I WOULD HIGHLY RECOMMEND HIM AS A VOCAL COACH."

"JACOB IS ONE OF THE BEST TEACHERS I HAVE EVER EXPERIENCED. HE IS VERY KNOWLEDGEABLE AND ENCOURAGING AND HELPED ME TO REALIZE MY WEAKNESSES IN A WAY THAT ENCOURAGED ME TO IMPROVE THEM WITHOUT FEELING OVERWHELMED OR EMBARRASSED. HE EXPLAINS HIS TECHNIQUES IN WAYS THAT ARE EASY TO UNDERSTAND AND HELPED ME TO APPLY CONCEPTS AND PRACTICE I HAD NEVER USED BEFORE. NOT ONLY WILL HE HELP YOU TO IMPROVE YOUR VOICE, BUT YOU WILL ENJOY YOUR TIME WITH HIM."

"Jacob is an amazingly talented individual with a true gift for teaching. He has an enthusiasm and love of music that is infectious and makes each lesson a truly enjoyable experience; I left each lesson feeling encouraged and positive. Jacob catered each lesson to my style and preference and was endlessly patient with me as I developed confidence, breath control, and pitch accuracy. I tremendously enjoyed working with Jacob and cannot say enough wonderful things about him. One simply cannot do better than Jacob for a voice coach."

“Working with Jacob was a complete breath of fresh air. I have been singing professionally in studio and live for about 20 years and have never worked with someone like him! His tips and direction were life changing for me and I would recommend Jacob to anyone and everyone! Also, he’s hilarious and makes you feel like family right off the bat which makes the whole process of being vulnerable with a coach more comfortable. I can’t wait to work with him again.”

Working with Jacob has been amazing. I've been singing on Youtube for several years now and while I've made a lot of progress on my own, I found myself at somewhat of a standstill.My fans would always say I had a great voice suited for ballads, but anytime I would try to sing anything remotely powerful they seemed to find it lacking.I was skeptical about voice lessons, mostly because I wasn't sure if working with a teacher would be worth it when you can find all of this great information online without one nowadays. I thought my voice was just stuck like that and I couldn't really sing anything beyond gentle songs.And now? I wish I had started much sooner!Within three lessons I already felt a huge difference. I've only been working with Jacob weekly for a couple of months now and singing has gone from feeling difficult and stressful to being fun again. It's like I'm finding a completely new voice and it's so much fun to experiment with it and feel like I'm realizing my potential and singing properly.Songs I previously found impossible to sing are finally possible - even EASY to sing.The improvement was immediate. Jacob explains things in a way that's really easy to grasp and practice with, and we record every lesson so every time I go to record a new song I pull a lesson up and do the warm ups.My fans noticed a difference straight away, and now I'm getting a bunch of feedback telling me how much I've improved. For the first time in almost 200 uploads and a total of 16,342,345 Youtube views, people have started describing my voice as powerful. I finally have my confidence back, and instead of feeling like I want to quit like I did just a few months ago, I feel motivated to improve even further.Now instead of hearing a song and thinking 'I could never pull that off', I feel confident enough to give it my all, and I know Jacob will help me reach all of my goals.It's been amazing so far and I can't wait to see what's in store. I would highly recommend Jacob, he's a wonderful instructor!"

"Jacob Burton is not only a great person and fun to be with he is so talented. We connected on not only a student to teacher level but a friend to friend. He's a lot more than just a teacher and a singer. He's so talented and has such a great ear. The song he wrote is amazing and he is destined for so many great successes. He plays the piano, and is outstanding at guitar. Jacob burton is name your lucky to say you know."

"Mr. Jacob is an excellent guitar, voice and Spanish teacher! He taught my son guitar when my son was three until almost age six before breaking our hearts and moving away! My son knows his chords and can play simple songs and read some sheet music. He's extremely gifted at teaching very young children, keeping their attention and making the lesson fun. I imagine such a skill translates well to older kids and even adults. Each week our home was filled with beautiful music and singing. Ans some of it came from my kid! Ha ha! Highly recommend."
