Testimonials about Camiah

"Camiah Mingorance is truly incredible. There is no other person in my life that I respect and admire as much as her. Not only is she the most talented voice teacher I have ever seen or heard of in my life, she is the kindest, most compassionate person you could ever hope to work with. She saw and continues to see potential in a deaf boy who for some reason really wanted to sing. And on the days on which I really thought my disability would make it impossible for me to sing on pitch, she had confidence, passion, and hope enough for the both of us. The amount of weekly improvement she not only pulls out of me, but out of all my peers around me, is absolutely astounding. This woman is talented enough to rule the music industry, but she chooses to teach because she cares about us. She truly does care about each and every one of her students and would do absolutely anything to help them succeed. I have often been afraid of leaving Georgia and going to college, solely because I would no longer see Camiah every day. I would not trade my time with Camiah Mingorance for anything in the world."

"Working with with Camiah Mingorance has been one of the most rewarding experiences of my life. Some call her “mom,” and some “Camiah”, but I call her “The Voice Teacher.” Camiah has the gift of bringing out the best in each of her clients. She has a unique passion and love for the art of the voice. This comes through with every aspect of her training. Behind her every word is a story, and behind every story there is a heart. A heart that shares all blessings. God has truly sent an angel."

"Camiah Mingorance is the best of the best. Not only does she care about her students’ gifts, but she cares about them as people. I believe having someone like that has great influence of the progress of a student. She lovingly pushes to show students how much farther they can go. She believes in students wholeheartedly. She is very educated but meets students where they are to help them understand her teachings. And she’s just so much fun to be around. She has made me a better, healthier singer. She has made me a better, healthier person. Camiah took me from a 2nd place state winner at NATS (National Association of Teachers of Singing) to a State and Regional champ, AND a National Semifinalist.More than that, she has given me so much knowledge about the inner workings of my voice and how to take care of it so I can sustain 7-8 shows a week. She is a huge part of why I will be training to be a vocal coach in the next few months.Last but not least, she is a great person who always has wanted to see me do my best. My voice and confidence would not be the same without her studio. I HIGHLY recommend her to anyone who is ready to learn a lot, work hard, and have a great time."

She took someone who had no formal training and got me into one of the top 25 schools of music in the nation on a vocal scholarship in just over 7 months!! She works magic!! She is extremely specific in how she is able to correct vocal issues and gets to the root of the bad habits immediately to fix them. Her knowledge of music and vocal anatomy in unparalleled! Most importantly, she invests in your life. She is real and doesn’t dance around critiques, but she is also willing to go above and beyond to help you grow!

"We can’t say enough about how much we love Ms. Camiah and what a great teacher she is. Our 10 year-old daughter has been taking voice lessons with Ms. Camiah for 16 months and in that time, her vocal ability and strength has grown tremendously. Ms. Camiah has been able to improve our daughter’s pitch, increase her range, and help her begin to find her true vocal tone. Earlier this year, our daughter entered a nationally recognized competition and won platinum level awards in two vocal categories. We credit these results in large part to what our daughter has learned from Ms. Camiah. Ms. Camiah is also very knowledgeable about the mechanics of the voice and as a result, we feel our daughter’s voice is safe in her hands. Our daughter loves her voice lessons and her vocal practice is the one part of her musical practice that she actually enjoys and does not complain about doing! As a Mom herself, Ms. Camiah is terrific with kids, but she is also responsive to parents’ input and ideas and works well together to provide the best vocal path for your child."

"Camiah is a talented, caring, supportive and focused voice instructor. My son has taken lessons from her for a couple of years, where this last year has been most critical–as he began preparing for college auditions. Camiah worked with my son from song selections that would help showcase his voice to assisting him in preparing for multiple auditions for both scholarship and Musical Theatre program placements. Her assistance in helping find those ‘right cuts’ for the audition and then working with him on how to perform those selections were invaluable. Camiah’s interaction with her students provide both the constructive and encouraging instructions that a student needs to understand their strengths and weaknesses. My son gained confidence as he his lessons progressed. Once the auditions began, Camiah’s instruction had prepared him to do his best. We were very pleased with the outcome from each audition, as he received multiple acceptances to college Musical Theatre programs, along with scholarships. We are thankful for Camiah and her talents. She was such an integral part in the preparation for my son’s college auditions. We are so thankful to have found her when we were looking for a voice instructor!"
