Angie- January 3, 2012> Garrett Liam States is a rare find! My 14 year old son has been working with Garrett for less than a year and has made impressive strides! He came to Garrett for help with his "changing" voice but has received so much more. Garrett is an awesome vocal coach but also a brilliant life coach who takes a true interest in his students. Not only has my son's voice benefitted from Garret but his presentation and confidence as well. AND all of this presented in a personable and (yes, sometimes) humorous manner. We love him and are looking forward to another great year of learning, laughing, and performing!

Garrett knows what all master teachers know - that building a rapport of trust with a student is essential to achieving any high goals. At each session, Garrett builds positive rapport because he knows that the process of learning to sing well often asks a student to take a risk. On a scale of 1 to 5 stars, Garrett Liam States solidly deserves 5 stars for his work with me over these past years. Mr. States has improved my voice by encouraging me to put emphasis on important qualities of vocal excellence including creative and critical thinking, resonance, focus and on the placing of my voice. Working with Garrett Liam States is one highlight of each week for me.

Garrett Liam States is an amazing vocal coach! I am a middle-aged business person that could not carry a tune three years ago despite a great desire to sing in public. Garrett patiently and methodically taught me how to hear notes via the keyboard and with accompanied cds. He guided me in establishing personal performance goals. I have surpassed all expectations. I have written songs and have performed within a group and as a soloist on numerous occasions. Yes, I am very grateful!

I came back to voice lessons after a 16 year absence! I had originally studied with a prominent female teacher in St. Louis, but found the experience to be tiring and nerve-wracking. All the criticism left me in tears after classes, and as a young girl, I needed encouragement and faith and for my teacher, who I trusted, to believe in me. After two years of studying she told me I'd never make it as a singer - only as an actress. Cut to 16 years later, when I found Garrett. From the moment I met him, I felt completely at ease and welcome and appreciated. He is a phenomenal teacher. Because I feel so comfortable with him, I am able to learn in a relaxed environment that is encouraging and entirely fun. I am improving by leaps and bounds due to this man. Anyone who is passionate about singing and looking for a teacher, please contact Garrett first! His extensive experience as a very successful performer makes him a wonderful, compassionate instructor. We are wildly lucky to have him in St. Louis!

Garrett States has been an amazing teacher and support. He helped my oldest daughter expand her range and repertoire well beyond where she was when she started. His support and caring helped her make it through some tougher auditions and achieve several great accomplishments. He coached her through college auditions with both acting and voice and she got into her choice of a school. Since then his continued emotional support and help has aided her through several auditions where she has been the only freshman to get as far as she did. My younger daughter also takes from him and, as in the past with her sister, the weekly lessons are fun, educational and a big confidence booster. In addition, Garrett States has a wonderful relationship with his students and helps them navigate the professional, emotional, musical and acting aspects of performing.

Awesome Voice Coach - My 13 year old loves her weekly voice lesson with Garrett. He is an excellent teacher that brings energy, humor, and fun to every lesson. He has greatly improved my daughters voice strength and range. He is great at explaining things in very simple, relateable terms that are easy to understand and always keeps a very positive attitude. Along with her voice, my daughter's self-confidence has greatly improved under his tutelage. We are thankful to have found him and can recommend him 100%.

I worked with Garrett States for my four years during high school and I still go back to visit him when I'm home from college. Don't think that if you're not interested in musical theater that Garrett isn't for you. I started with Garrett when I needed to learn how to sing back-up vocals for my metal band. Then, I recommended my band's singer/screamer to him. If that doesn't prove to you how versatile Garrett States is as a teacher, then I don't know what will. He will work with you to find what you want out of a vocal or acting coach and he will show you how to reach your goals. He really goes beyond being a vocal teacher, he is genuinely interested in all of his students and cares immensely about every student's progress. It seems like he took the ambitiousness of his performing career, bumped it up a few notches, and transferred it to his teaching career.
