Hi, Im Mitch Seekins The Vocal Coach
Just wanted to give you all an update on what’s coming up. I’m doing a series of interviews to let you know firsthand what it takes to become a truly pro vocalist…. from the people who are actually doing it!
This week I’ll be posting an interview I did with Singer Songwriter and amazing multi-instrumentalist – Luna Li who is beginning to make a big splash in the scene, selling out shows in LA, San Francisco, and New York (those are the ones I know about) …and she is another student of mine who is playing at Coachella! That makes 3 this year! She is playing a private afterparty, not one of the main stages…. Who knows…perhaps next year? Fingers crossed!
I am also doing series of interviews with a couple of award winning Producers….to give you insights on what you can do as a vocalist to prepare for the studio…the first is, the last week of April, with renown Canadian Producer Gavin Brown, who has worked with such people as the bare-naked ladies, Three Days Grace, The Tragically Hip, New Kids On The Block, Metric…even some stuff with Lady Gaga! Going to be very cool!
Then the 1st week of May I’m talking with LA producer Howard Benson who’s is not only an overall producer but is also known as a great vocal producer! He has worked with people like Adam Lambert, Kelly Clarkson, Chris Cornell, Motorhead, Rascal Flatts, Santana and again my guys 3 Days Grace…. Stuff he has produced has sold more that 100 million albums and over 20 billion streams!
These guys are going to have amazing insights to share! I’m really looking forward to talking with them!

Hi! I’m Mitch Seekins The Vocal Coach….want to see what some of my students are doing?
Welcome to the channel!
I guess you’d like to know what the channel is all about. I’ll be sharing my tips and strategies that I use with my Rockstar students as well as doing interviews with some of the high level people I work with so they can share with you what they know and experience firsthand.
Who am I?
I am a vocal technique specialist that teaches people how to get the most out of their voices in terms of tone, power, range, versatility, and stamina.
Like most of you, I have loved music ever since I can remember – One of my earliest memories is standing on a chair to turn up the radio to listen to the Beatles (I think)
Since age of 5, I thought about becoming a vocalist – It’s all I ever dreamed about growing up …which was very difficult where I was raised and didn’t know how I was going to make that happen….
I didn’t have the opportunity to pursue my interest until I left home at 17 and have since dedicated my entire life to it
Got into a band and started touring…I ended up Touring internationally for 37 yrs
Studied intensively for 13yrs and found a love for technique (which I fostered as a high level athlete, all throughout high school) … So, I really enjoyed the challenge of seeing what I could do vocally
I have sung almost every genre of western music – Rock. Pop, R&B, Blues, Musical Theatre, Opera, Jazz and thrived on figuring out how to use technique to get the most out of what I had vocally regardless of the genre I was performing at the time
Began teaching in 1990 (30 yrs… Yikes!)
Found I was really good at “translating” classical ideas and technique so everyone could understand it and apply it to whatever genre they were performing
After a few years Started making a name for myself as a vocal teacher that seemed to be able to help damaged voices
Record companies and management companies began to refer people that they wanted “fixed”
The first person to teach voice online…. In the midst of building up my reputation as a vocal teacher, I knew that using technology was going to be the future and wanted to teach while both my students and I were on the road…. I just needed time to the tec to catch up …
As soon as it had, I started…so now I am highly “tuned” to it
The music industry has changed so much over the last 10 yrs. that for artists, putting out records/CD’s or singles is simply no longer enough. They must tour.
The majority of my students are recording artists that tour globally. What I teach them enables them to perform night after night – with proper scheduling of course!
So there you are! That’s who I am and what I do!
Please subscribe or check back periodically as I will adding new content as soon as I have it. If you have a suggestion as to what you might like me to cover for an episode let me know and I’ll take it under consideration. If you have a burning question to ask, I will answer 2 posted questions a week…so post away!
Having studied voice so extensively and performing in multiple musical genres, Mitch has been able to develop a unique vocal technique (The Mitch Seekins Vocal Technique) that empowers his students with the ability to sing in any musical genre. Mitch’s vocal technique is very different from “vocal coaching”.
