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 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 The R&B Singing Success System to help you develop that with 1:1 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 firstproject or single one day!

Whether you've learned about Indie Artist School through another student in my R&B Singing Success System program, online courses, group classes, The Singer's Arsenal podcast, Instagram , or YouTube instructional videos, or a simple Google search ...

So far, I have helped 31,156 singers

transform their voices!

My Unique Approach to Vocal Coaching

I have a passion for solving vocal problems! Using easy-to-understand vocal exercises and tricks to help you master all 3 systems necessary to have a polished voice. Your respiratory (Breathing), phonatory(Vocal Health), and resonatory (Vocal Control) systems.
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 TOOLS and skills to do it!

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!!

Frequently Asked Questions

How can I enroll?

I have limited available slots for live coaching students and my R&B Singing Success System is for singers who are SERIOUS about their vocal transformation. Because of this, I must meet with you and coach you live 1:1 in a vocal diagnostic before enrollment to ensure it's a good fit. If you are eligible for enrollment, you will be notified of what session seats are available, and I will send enrollment links to you via email.

How long does the R&B Singing Success System: 1:1 Vocal Coaching Program last?

My full-service 1:1 vocal coaching program is 24 (1hr) weekly sessions. On holidays, sessions roll over to the next week. So it can last on average between 7-9months total depending on how many sessions a student rolls over.

What is the price to join your R&B Singing Success System: 1:1 Vocal Coaching Program

My full-service 1:1 vocal coaching program is $3,600 USD.

To avoid scheduling pitfalls, email me [email protected] with your timezone, and I'll let you know what I have open that may work best for you.
