Thankful for a GIVER LIKE JOHN

As a worker for non profits for years, I have determined that a non profits goal should be to eventually put themselves out of business....You may understand what I’m speaking about if you truly are a GIVER, and only have others best interest at heart. John shares so much excellent information on singing, that if one studies on their own and skillfully practices what is learned, John could eventually put himself out of vocal teaching business!!! John is truly a professional who is intelligent, funny, frank, and a wealth of knowledge! I discovered this podcast only 8 episodes ago...with many more to go! Thank you John Henny, and thank you for your mention of the podcast called the “Inner Singer”. The two podcasts go “hand in hand “! (Sean Sikes from Fairfield Bay, Arkansas)Just Do It!

Great podcast for singers and teachers

I’m a voice teacher and I’ve met John several times at teacher conferences and he has an amazing ability to take complex concepts and make them simple to understand. My other teacher/singer friend told me she had been listening to his podcast a while back so I followed suit and was hooked! I recommend this podcast to my students who like to get more in depth with their voice knowledge and they Always love it! Super helpful show when I just need a boost with my teaching or singing motivation! Highly recommend!!!!

A Well Done Podcast!

I found John Henny’s Youtube channel through a BTS performance review, and checked out the podcast because I have an interest in singing. I scrolled through and quickly found an episode on a topic I have needed help with. The musical education is well balanced with anecdotes that show the experience he must have as a musician and a teacher. The information is presented in an approachable way and is so well communicated that even someone who has never taken a voice lesson in their life can find useful tips. I also appreciate the shorter, succinct format. It is focused and is not intimidating to get into. Highly, highly recommend!!
