Susan Hanlon Ferrer

Voice Teacher and owner of Susan Hanlon Vocal Studio

It is my deepest belief that my job as a teacher is to equip you with the tools and skills that you need in order to make the sounds you want to make! Working with you to help build your awareness of your instrument will help YOU become an expert on YOUR OWN voice! 

Here is a little bit about my background, so you know where I am coming from.

I graduated with both my BA and MA in Music with a vocal emphasis from UNT. While I was studying there, I enjoyed being a member of the esteemed UNT Jazz Singers and had a wonderful time gigging and recording.

I began teaching voice in 2004 and had 16 fabulous years of working with hundreds of 11-18 year old singers for both in-school lessons as well as private lessons in my studio.

I was honored to work as Professor of Commercial Voice and Traditional Voice at Collin College. This opportunity led me to work with many budding artists and established adult singers who were studying at the college.

Since 2017, I have been an Associate Teacher for Tom Mckinney Voice. Tom has helped hundreds of top stars (Beyoncé, Solange Knowles, Scott Hoying, Mario) with their vocal techniques and I have had such fun working with professional performers as his Dallas Teaching Associate.

In June of 2021 I made the decision to leave the academic world of voice and focus all my energy into my thriving private studio. I am thrilled to see how the studio has grown and shifted over the years and am excited for the future! 

My areas of specialty are:

*helping artists prepare for gigs and recording sessions

*working with adult singers who want to get back into performing

*preparing high school singers for college & musical theatre auditions

*helping young singers build confidence and skills so they can pursue their performance goals

It is important to me to stay on top of new voice research and trends in the music industry so lifelong learning is an absolute core value of mine.

Currently, I am a member of:
