"Andrew Drost has changed my whole life. That sounds dramatic and profound, but it is truly how i feel about the growth that I have made working with him. Ever since I began studying with him a few years ago my entire world has opened up in front of me as a performer. Studying with Andrew has opened my eyes to what I have to offer as a performer and now as a singer (Not just a dancer with a good voice). With each lesson I learn more about my voice, how to use it, how to show it off and how to apply it to everything I am singing in auditions and in my shows. He truly cares so much about his students and each student is an individual that he is able to see where they are and speak their language to get them to where they need to be. Since studying with Andrew, I have booked six Broadway Shows, done a concert at Carnegie Hall, booked a television series and did the West Side Story Movie! Again, he has changed my life. I continue to come into myself as a singer each lesson and I always walk out with a wealth of knowledge. I look forward to every lesson and I look forward to all the continued success we will have together! Best voice teacher ever!

"Andrew is a genius! I had no idea what my voice was capable of before I started working with Andrew. He literally pulled out the very best in my voice and changed how I think about singing. Working with him has given me the confidence in my vocal technique to go out on stage night after night and become Frankie! No words other than life changing!"

Andrew helped this dancer find her voice!!! I first came to Andrew with very little vocal training, so I had to start with the basics, like supportive breathing. He used to dance professionally, so he knows how dancers have to train their bodies to breathe a different way while singing. He has me do movement while I sing, and I've found that helps immensely with connecting my breathing and singing freely. The exercises he gives progress as you do, allowing you to really see your growth. From day one, he has been encouraging and is very knowledgeable about how to sing in a smart and safe way. Thanks to Andrew, I am now singing on Broadway!!

"I have been studying with Andrew Drost for less than a year now and in this short time he has completely transformed my voice. In all of my years of voice training I have not learned as much and improved as rapidly as I have in the past 5 months working with him. It is very clear that Andrew’s priority is to teach his students how to sing properly, making sure they have a healthy and well-informed understanding of the voice. This foundation that he stresses is imperative for the longevity of a singer’s career. Andrew is an incredibly knowledgeable and inspiring teacher who has the ability to identify a singer’s roadblocks and unlock their potential, allowing them to find their exceptional voice that they may not have even know they possessed. It has been life changing!"

"To quote Meg Giry: 'She's been taking lessons, from a great teacher!'. Andrew is that great teacher. He has completely transformed my voice.

"Andrew is simply THE BEST! I look forward to my lesson each week and I always come out in a better mood than when I arrived! Andrew has helped this dancer build her voice from an absolute beginner to a dancer who is now getting singing call backs! VoiceBarre® is genius!"

"Andrew understands performers & the meticulous technical work it takes behind the scenes to shine bright on stage. In every lesson he opens the door & invites the authentic me to come out & sing!"

Andrew changes my world, one voice lesson at a time. He is simply the most amazing voice teacher I've experienced. Andrew has a wealth of knowledge. He approaches teaching with a broad skill set from his years of experience on the stage and working with students of all capacities. Ever since studying with Andrew, my voice has been growing and expanding beyond what I could have expected. I'm no longer considering myself just a dancer with a decent voice. I'm coming into my own as a singer. I look forward to our lessons, as I learn so much and make major leaps in my technical abilities as a singer. Andrew is guiding me to open up endless possibilities for my career!
