Patrick Micheal Wickham is awesome.

With his unique background - Juilliard AND med school! - Patrick knows how the voice works both artistically and scientifically, and he uses that knowledge to pinpoint your weaknesses and show you how to improve.

He has an encyclopedic knowledge of all kinds of music. I grew up signing Soul/R&B and Gospel, and Patrick works with me in those genres. But hes also shown me that the way to perform better within them is by going beyond them, by training in Opera! I had developed a lot of bad habits by imitating pop singers, so legit" training - releasing the tongue, covering with a high palette, not cheating with the nose - was exactly what I needed. It's made made my voice fuller, richer, and healthier. I have more endurance and flexibility, more range and resonance, and - heres the best part - what sounds better also feels easier.

Patrick is also one of the most incredibly talented singers I know. His voice is stunning. I'd almost pay for lessons just to hear his demonstrations. Hes an excellent example - something to aspire to.

Finally, only the best get to teach in Patrick's company, so you might like to try the other teachers in his school too.

How random that I find this post! Two of my friends have gone to lessons with Mr. Wickham and have greatly improved. I do not sing, however I am a music fan. I know he has huge success not only with my friends, but other artists that

Patrick is an extremely knowledgeable "voice facilitator." I think his teaching philosophy can be likened to a sherpa (mountain guide) since, at least in my case, he uses a "critical thinking" approach. As his student you are an active

As a professional dancer, I'm a zealout for teaching that focuses on the applcation of physiology and function. In terms of direct application to the singing voice and true correction of problems, there simply isn't a better program than Wickham Vocal Studios. I have seen a massive transformation in my range, tone, resonance, artistry and overall singing ease. I had no idea what incredible deep tongue tension I had, and there is no practitioner out there that has the background to diagnose and alleviate it like Patrick has. The results are far beyond my expectations.

I would also like to mention how professional the staff is. I've had so many last-minute scheduling malfunctions in my career that Charlie has worked around. You are greeted with warm tea and cookies while you wait in the reception area. It's just a wonderful experience overall and so different than walking into your typical ex-opera-singer-granny's UWS apartment.

I'm a fan. The guy can sing better than any teacher I've worked with. Every lesson is different and challenging. I'm growing faster than I ever thought possible. Will be auditioning for the Festival this year. My parents can't believe

WVS specializes in technique training for advanced and damaged voices. I have personally made significant strides in my own technique through Mr. Wickham's masterful skill, and have several industry colleagues I have referred to the program whose voices have displayed vast changes in tone and efficiency.

The place is really cool--you feel like you are part of a family. They work around your budget and your schedule. Good resources and performance opps. I think i'm developing faster in my career than I would have studying anywhere else.

Our son studies at school for one year. My husband and I are very happy with progress. Good teachers, good staff and good training. Voice is much better and he have more confidence on stage.

I am a voice teacher who has studied with some of the top minds in the field (Ingo Titze, Richard Miller at Oberlin, etc.). I don't claim to have all the answers, but I pride myself on being a ruthless perfectionist in terms of singing

As a graduate of Carnegie Mellon's Musical Theatre program, I can honestly place the quality and knowledge of the Wickham Studios training at or often above that of the best teachers I have ever studied with.

What to expect: Serious intense training for professional-minded singers. This teacher doesn??t play around. Exercises, homework, career building and research are part of the package. Lessons recorded and sent to you in an email. They??ll also help you with demos. Not the cheapest place in town, but not most expensive either and worth the investement for better results.

PROS: Complete change in tone, tons of power, mastery of range, perfect vibrato and total control of your sound without thinking about it. Plus confidence in stage presence and your brand as a performer. And lots of performance opportunities.

CONS: Hard work and very intense. Not for everyone! Lessons do run late (up to 15 minutes) so that can be annoying, but Charlie (the administrator) will entertain you in the reception area, make you tea and make you laugh 18x before you go in.

My daughter is auditioning for Juilliard on recommendation of her advisor because of the progress she has made at this school. I'm not sure what else need be said.

Not gonna lie, this program is hard and will kick your a$$. Mr. Wickham is positive but TOUGH. he will get results. Your high notes and tone will be huge within a short time but you gotta do the work. It pays off huge but no free lunch

As an actor who has been on Broadway in two principal roles and several tours, I can say without doubt that the selection of a voice teacher is one of the trickiest challenges a young performer faces. Singing is not just about the physical conditioning of the voice, but about the psychology of unlocking one s soul. There are teachers out there that polish already talented professionals without adding anything substantial to their training. There are teachers out there that break the singer down in an attempt to build them up. There are magical technicians that boast a miracle cure for the voice. I have had all of the above and more and only found frustration. And then I found Patrick Michael Wickham. There is simply no one out there more caring, knowledgable and effective for the human singing voice. He is an absolute MUST-HAVE for anyone who wants to succeed as a professional vocalist. If you study with another teacher, add him to your roster (he works well WITH other teachers). If you have vocal issues you think will never go away, call him immediately. I cannot emphasize enough (and again, I am a very seasoned pro) that this man and this program deliver everything and much more than promised.

Mr. Wickham is simply the most knowledgable voice EXPERT in NYC. I've studied with twelve of the so-called "top" voice teachers in New York over a period of twelve years and have a degree in voice from NYU. In all of my training, I haven't ever encountered a more patient, thorough and results-driven teacher. He has succeeded where so many have come close and failed. The thing that blows my mind is that despite all this he is honest and humble and will even recommend other teachers in certain cases, but I always find myself coming back to him.

I'm a trained singer who began having voice issues that many of the "top" teachers in NYC couldn't fix. Within four lessons I was finding an ease and clarity in my voice that I hadn't experienced in years! I'm booking shows constantly now

Pros: Actually learn how the voice works

Cons: NONE

I've gone to several private voice instructors, and it was always frustrating for me. The approach to teaching at wickham vocal studios was totally different, and I've seen a big improvement in my confidence singing and my understanding of singing in only a month. Very affordable for the training I'm getting and they have lots of payment options. I highly recommend it if you're looking for a good singing instructor!
