“I have seen the wonderful voice-structuring approach that Jeff Alani Stanfill teaches. He is a vocal instructor with a positive approach sharing a vast knowledge of the Old Swedish/Italian singing school. I would recommend Mr. Stanfill to anyone searching for their complete voice.”

"Jeffrey was recommended to me by Maestro David Jones whose wonderful Vocal seminar I attended in 2011. I've been studying with Jeffrey ever since. My voice has grown tremendously as a result and I am singing with new found ease and confidence. His technique (The Swedish-Italian School)has helped me increase and strengthen my range. Through his teachings, he has given me the confidence and foundation needed to tackle the most difficult tenor repertoire.
More than simply a gifted technician, Jeffrey has become both a friend and mentor to me. He is an extremely empathetic teacher who understands that good information is useless without good communication. I have worked with good and competent voice teachers in the past but none of them have been able to teach vocal technique in the way Jeffrey does. I understand my instrument so much better than ever before. I am excited to go to each and every lesson and know that my progress will be both dynamic and consistent. I am eternally grateful to be working Jeffrey and I truly cannot recommend him highly enough.”

"My new year’s resolution in 2011 was to start voice lessons and, a year later, I think it is what I want to do for a career. None of that would have been possible if it wasn't for the nurturing support, positive encouragement and the incredible teachings of Jeff Stanfill. Every lesson he welcomes you with a smile, a funny story and a upbeat note to start your lesson and continues his wonderful attitude throughout. Jeff challenged me to do things in a year I didn't think I would be able to do in 3 years, but I was able to do them with ease. His reassurance of my strengths helped me work through my weaknesses.
Jeff doesn't teach how to sing, because anyone can open their mouth and sing, he teaches why we sing, what’s behind the voice and how to be a singer. He becomes more than a voice teacher, he becomes a partner in a team solving the mysteries of the vocal chords and discovering the joys of the voice. Jeff allows me to sing out in joy because I know that when he sings and teaches he is expressing that same joy.”

“Jeffery is wonderful!!! I have only had two lessons and I already feel and hear a difference in my voice. It is indeed soaring. He will get you to the next level!”

“Jeffrey Alani Stanfill is one of the most gifted voice teachers I have worked with! He truly understands the voice and knows, from first hand experiences as a performer and lifelong teacher, which exercises will work to overcome vocal problems and to increase range, flexibility, intonation, endurance, breath control placement and style. I always feel like a better singer and student of the voice and body after each lesson with Jeff! My range grew working with him! He has a wonderful, important gift and is a wonderful guide and person!”
Alana Sealy, Dramatic Soprano
“It is always a pleasure to work with Jeff. As an opera singer, Jeff's lessons help free up my voice and increase my flexibility, while maintaining the warm resonance I've worked for.”
Mark Khan & Luz Resto, Parents of Student
“From the very first lesson with Jeff, we realized that we had found the perfect partner to develop our daughter Cinya's voice. What impresses us about Jeff firstly is his demeanor. He is gentle with our Cinya. He is genuine in his resolve to develop Cinya's natural voice. To us this makes sense because for us the goal is to enhance her gift, not to change it. His concern about protecting her voice for longevity through his very careful series of exercises is also comforting and admirable. Cinya has been taking voice lessons with Jeff for about 6 months now and the difference in her voice is unbelievable. Her control, range and overall growth in such a short space of time is remarkable.
What's most important to us is that Cinya loves to go to her lessons. She laughs and jokes with her teacher and somehow, Jeff manages to challenge Cinya in a fun and enjoyable way. We are very grateful to have found Jeff Stanfill.”

“As a mature singer, I had been experiencing diminished range and flexibility of my voice, so I had been searching the web for some time for a voice teacher. I was delighted to find the voice studio of Jeffrey Stanfill over a year ago. I have been studying with Jeff ever since, and my voice is better now than it ever was, with a higher quality of resonance and clarity, as well as increased range and greater freedom. Jeff is a very talented diagnostician of vocal issues, and is able to convey the technical aspects of vocal pedagogy more clearly that my seven previous teachers! In addition to being an excellent, supportive teacher, Jeffrey is a warm and kind person, who will welcome you into his studio with hospitality and a great cup of tea! Thank you for being a wonderful mentor and friend!”
Anshul Mathur, Rock Vocalist
“Jeff is a stellar vocal coach. His technique and coaching have helped me develop a healthy and strong singing voice. He is passionate about teaching and has deep knowledge and insights on vocal technique. He has been a fabulous mentor to me and a real inspiration.”
Monica Sharma, Dance Recording Artist
“Jeff Stanfill has an astonishing way of helping a vocalist reach his true and natural vocal potential. His technique is exactly what I needed to strengthen my chest voice and develop my head voice. I’ve always had a wide vocal range, but I never knew exactly how far I could stretch it or how to determine my voice type. I can proudly confirm today that I am a Mezzo-Soprano and it’s all thanks to Jeff!
He is the kindest, most patient I know and the one who is most committed towards the growth of his students. Working with Jeff over the last three years has helped my head voice reach soaring levels I didn’t even know existed. He not only provides his students with extensive knowledge on proper technique but at the end of your lesson, your voice is free, open and you feel so much more empowered! Jeff is a very gifted vocal coach who knows intuitively what his student is capable of on a profound level and he has the talent to bring that magic out of anyone!
I am blessed to have Jeff in my life as a wonderful friend and an inspiring teacher. I highly recommend him to anyone who wants to improve or discover the true possibilities of their voice.”
Brendon Fussnecker, Rock Vocalist/Song writer
“Jeff does a great job of explaining concepts and technique in my own language, which helps me improve my singing quickly and safely. In addition, he challenges me to become a better singer than I ever thought I could be.”
