Suzanna is one of the best vocal teachers I’ve encountered in my 22 years of experience working for record labels. Her ability to connect to young talent and bring out the best in there performances both vocally and visually is top notch in LA or NYC.
Suzanna is an outstanding, very special vocal coach - I highly recommend her. As a seasoned singer and performer, she has helped me break through vocal tightness and blocks and helped me extend my range. She has also been instrumental in prepping me for performances. I’ve been singing a long time - she is my favorite vocal coach in LA!

I first heard about Vocal Power from a friend in LA who had participated in a workshop with Suzanna. When I found out that she was doing one in Charlotte, I signed my two boys up. They are both well trained musicians, one on violin and the other on piano. Both of them sing in a very prestigious choir and travel on tour all over the world. I was looking for something to take their vocal training beyond the fundamentals of music theory and pitch. I was not disappointed with Vocal Power! Suzanna has a wonderful gift of teaching with a contagious enthusiasm for musical performance. In a matter of minutes, even the most timid of students was stepping up to the microphone and belting it out...with feeling!

The smiles on the kids’ faces were priceless...they were so proud of what they had accomplished in a short period of time. And all while having FUN! They had each chosen a song to perfect during the workshop and at the end they performed it for the group. The songs ran the gamut from Sound of Music to Meghan Trainor to Michael Jackson. Suzanna was able to pull from these kids the extra energy that transformed them from singers into performers! In fact, one of the girls from the group continued with Suzanna for private lessons and auditioned for The Voice and made the first cut! Vocal Power is transformative, and Suzanna Griffith is a special and gifted teacher!
