Hi, I'm Kristal Cherelle,

I am an Independent R&B Singer and the Founder of Indie Artist School!

I've been singing and teaching singers how to find their voice and confidence for nearly a decade!

In that time, I've opened for Lauryn Hill, self-released singles like "Whoah" and notable albums Stages of Love and Fighter, sung the national anthem for the Houston Rockets, and collaborated with signed rapper, Kerser on his song "Ima Stunner" 2020 project that charted #3 on Australian charts-- 'Roll the Dice'.

I love every day I spend singing R&B & teaching it to others!

I always get messages from people who tell me how much they want to sing r&b but are too afraid they're not talented enough. Maybe you're thinking the same thing...

I'm going to go ahead and stop you right there...

Maybe you've got a lot of natural talent or not so much. But guess what, it doesn't even matter!

Skill matters most, and I created Indie Artist School to help you develop that with r&b vocal coaching!

My students are diverse.

Some are independent R&B artists who want to take their voices to the next level.

Some are currently or have been signed to major labels in the past, and some double as producers for grammy nominated artists.

Some students are everyday people who want to boost their confidence and sing R&B better.

Some are transitioning into the genre of R&B and are not necessarily new to singing.

While others are aspiring to become independent R&B singers with dreams of releasing their first project or single one day!

Whether you've learned about Indie Artist School through another student in my live Indie Artist School R&B Vocal Coaching program, online courses, The Singer's Arsenal podcast, through YouTube and Instagram instructional videos, or a simple google search ...

So far, I have helped a combined total of 27,619 singers

transform their voices!

My Unique Approach to Vocal Coaching

I hold enjoyment and ease in the vocal development process as an essential part of my growth as a singer, and I believe it should be the same for other singers looking to have a lasting impact with their voice as well!

A heart-centered approach helps singers bring out the best of their voices!

I treat the WHOLE SINGER! In your sessions with me, we will tackle mental blocks, affirm what you're doing well, and I can help you view your vocal challenges as opportunities for growth and give you the ACTUAL TOOLS and skills to do it!

These tools include--getting the essential vocal techniques needed to sing R&B (like tone, control, vocal runs, and belting), in-depth vocal pedagogy, and fundamentals of singing that give you a more polished professional sound!

Transformations in progress

A vocal breakthrough while working with a student on Love Again with Daniel Caesar and Brandy (Yes, the vocal Bible herself). Even seasoned r&b singers can get intimidated and get hard on themselves. But I’ll never let a little obstacle take you down! We’re in it together—you got this! 👏

Making complex R&B vocal techniques easy and fun to sing is what I love doing most!

Often we get too in our heads when we’re singing, trying to do it right. DOUBTING ourselves. When the beauty of vocal transformations is all about the incremental breakthroughs compounded over time until you build consistency. It’s all about FREEING your voice and letting it shine ✨🥰🪄TA-DA!

I am so happy I took lessons at Indie Artist School. They are wonderfully encouraging and knowledgeable. You will see results not just with your vocals but also with your confidence and motivation for your personal and professional life. Unforgettable experience. Worth the time and money!!

Pleiona C.

Both of my coaches were incredibly professional, knowledgeable, and amazing teachers. They are compassionate, patient, motivating, and honest when something needs an adjustment. My voice is so much more fluid and supported. I actually comprehend how it works. No one showed it to me the way it was taught here, and it just makes so much more ✨sense✨. This means they are perfect for literally everyone whether you're a complete beginner or super advanced! I highly recommend Kristal’s school! Thank you! 💕

Chinelo O.

Before finding this school I had been struggling to find a vocal coach who was able to pinpoint how to best help me improve. I just have to say Lily and Kristal have been more than instrumental in curating a program tailored to my needs and I’m truly grateful! They’re both amazing people and I would hands down recommend using them over and over again.

Insanely talented and awesome teachers. Very encouraging and gentle in corrections while not lowering expectations. I took voice lessons just for fun and in just 2 months ended up pushing beyond what I ever imagined was expected!

Iza I.

Amazing vocal coaches! They are kind, professional, and incredibly helpful. After only a few classes I can already see great improvement in my singing technique and confidence. I am always super excited for the next class. Thank you so much!

Indie Artist School is a very great place. Very professional and really helped me focus on every aspect of singing. Very keen ear and wrong notes do not get past them. Love it!!
