The Himes Studio has made a huge impact on my family. Although both of my girls grew up singing in church, in high school they wanted to grow vocally while participating in the theatre department. Not only did Mrs. Himes stretch them and push them in the best of ways, she challenged them in all areas and provided the pep talks along the way, assuring them they could rise to the challenge. They have learned amazing skills and life lessons to carry them into adulthood and beyond. Himes provides the “package deal”...not just singing skills and techniques. I highly recommend!

Being in the Himes studio for 5 years taught me so many incredible life lessons, and ultimately inspired me to pursue my dreams and study music in college. She has helped me immensely with my self-confidence and performance anxiety with her wonderful (and funny) methods. I never would've imagined how much my voice has matured these past 5 years. From being a shy 8th grader unable to use my upper register, to a rising college freshman studying opera performance, my growth is largely due to her amazing work. Whether it was balancing performances with vocal health, or sorting out the college audition process, she has been such an amazing resource and person to help guide me through it all. She has also helped me achieve my biggest goal in high school; making the Texas All State Choir. Another thing I really admire about Mrs. Himes is the connectivity she strives with each of her students. I always felt like I could go to her for questions and I would always be met with a smile. I really felt like she cared about me and her students, and always made sure they felt comfortable and safe. Mrs. Himes has truly set the foundation I need to succeed, and has prepared me for the future that awaits!

Mrs. Himes was simultaneously supportive and constructive, proud of the work I did but knowing she could push me to be even better.  I’m graduating from the studio a much better musician, performer, vocalist, and person.

Coming to Himes Studio was one of the best things I’ve done for myself. I’ve always known I have a nice range and a unique voice so I never thought voice lessons were necessary... and boy was I wrong! Himes Studio has helped me progress so much and has helped me grow a tremendous amount. I started doing things with my voice I’d never even thought about doing. I highly recommend joining Himes Studio! ~ Ireland Casteel 
 

Congratulations to Ireland on the release of her new video, "Kevin Young's Cat"


 
 
Kelly Himes is a wonderful voice teacher to collaborate with and always has her students' best interests in mind. Her ability to incorporate vocal health and pedagogy into voice lessons is fantastic and so beneficial to singers of all ages.  I highly recommend taking lessons and working with Mrs. Kelly Himes.

As a songwriter and musician I have always focused on the craft of writing and guitar playing, but always swept vocal coaching under the rug. Since working with Kelly, I've realized a depth and confidence in my voice didn't even know I had. Every live show I'm encouraged by the work we've been doing. ~ Alex Bellin

Congratulations to Alex Bellin on the release of his newest video, "Timberline" ~
