This is me singing the anthem for the Houston Rockets at Toyota Stadium

Hi, I’m Kristal Cherelle!

I am the founder & vocal coach at Indie Artist School. I've been singing and coaching in Houston, TX for nearly 10 years. I've opened for Lauryn Hill, sung the national anthem for the Houston Rockets, and collaborated with Australian star, Kerser.

I love every day I get to spend singing and teaching what I know to others! 

I get messages all the time from people who tell me how much they want to sing, 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 maybe not so much. But guess what, it doesn't even matter!

Skill is what matters most, and you can develop that with vocal coaching!

Meet Lily Jones!

Lily Jones is a vocal coach at Indie Artist School. She is a professional artist and musician with a B. A in Theater from SUNY Buffalo State.

Throughout college and her professional career, she’s had a range of experience from recording as a guest vocalist for local bands, to working as a teaching artist for the social justice initiative The Anne Frank Project, to starring as Sally Bowles in the musical Cabaret.

She has acted and sung in theaters and concert venues all around the greater Buffalo area, including at Theater of Youth, Shea’s Performing Arts Center, and Lewiston’s Artpark.

She believes that anyone who desires to refine their artistic talent and perspective deserves the opportunity to do so.

Transformations in Progress


This is McKayla, she is a beginner vocalist who is finding her voice! Look at her transformation!

I helped her stop her voice from cracking and increase her singing range by a HALF OCTAVE in only 4 lessons!

 

This is Nate Drop, an independent artist who is performing and releasing his own music as a part-time job in addition to his other work.

 

Looking for a creative outlet?

Singing will not only help you unwind and have fun. But, singing has many other benefits...

  • Singing helps lower risk of depression and anxiety by increasing levels of serotonin in your brain when you sing.
  • Singing improves your lung health by training your diaphragm.
  • Singing improves the quality of your sleep by improving your breathing.
  • Singing improves your memory by increasing mental alertness.
  • Singing improves your immune health by releasing more immunoglobulin (antibodies) in your blood immediately after singing.


Transform Your Voice!


Contrary to popular belief, singing is not just a gift you're born with--it's also a skill you can learn and develop. I've helped students of all experience levels TRANSFORM THEIR VOICE by coaching them on how to develop pitch accuracy, smooth vocal breaks, improve breath control and expand breath capacity, belt, sing vocal runs, and increase their vocal range!

 

VIRTUAL VOICE LESSONS


Indie Artist School lessons transform your voice!

Over the years I have helped hundreds of people become better singers. Whether they have had training before and sing for a living or if they're working in other career paths and just want to sing as a hobby--our students have transformed their voice by increasing their vocal range, improved their stamina and strength, stopped their voice from cracking, as well as improve the accuracy of their vocal runs by training at Indie Artist School.

Indie Artist School vocal coaching service is hassle-free!

I created this virtual singing school to help transform voices by using a full-immersion online experience with an online course, digital vocal notebook, and 1-on-1 singing lessons on zoom.

Everybody starts somewhere...


I remember looking out of the window at my desk job, daydreaming about being a full-time independent artist and vocal coach.

I was afraid because I saw so many people quit their passion for something more 'safe'. Would I be next?

Have you ever felt like this?

I realized the biggest risk I was making was living a life unfulfilled..

I left that job and committed my life to creating and teaching music.

I’m not saying you should quit YOUR day job to do music like I did...unless that's your dream (then I can teach you the process of how to transition into music full-time).

It doesn't matter if singing is a hobby or a potential career choice for you--if singing is something that interests you and brings you joy, you should make it a part of your life!

Exploring my untapped potential was one of the best decisions I ever made, and I’m sure you’ll be glad you did too!

Are you ready?
