"I can't believe what you have done to my voice. You are a miracle worker." - Sarah Gromko, New Orleans, LA,

“Cindy has restored my confidence in my voice and allowed me to see the possibilities before me. She has taught me how and when to use power and/or finesse to sing a song. Her many professional associations with musicians and performers have given me opportunities I wouldn’t have had otherwise. Best of all, Cindy has a great sense of humor and is a joy to work with.”
- Wil Walker, Los Angeles, CA
