"Anything that Nancy Harris does - you can count on her being brilliant! Additionally - she is a pearl - a great person. I highly recommend her to ALL!” Karen Lee Bridge (professional jazz singer)
From recent recipients of my jazz recordings:
"Wow, what a GORGEOUS album! Just absolutely beautiful! It arrived today and I have listened already 2x. I love the mix of standards and jazz tunes. Your voice is lovely, and it's exciting to also hear the accompaniment, like the big band that comes in for That Old Black Magic. I will listen and enjoy many more times! This week I'll upload it to my computer so I can listen when I'm traveling this summer. Thank you!" Ben (classic/jazz pianist)
RE latest release of Windmills https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=sengEl9XlwM: “Hauntingly beautiful! Or beautifully haunting? Like the circles that you find in the windmills of your mind......Have listened 5 times now...Can not WAIT for this 3rd album." Ben
"I got the CD's! Every cut a sweet memory or ten, and you certainly did make them your own while fully respecting the composer. Thank you SOOOOO much!" Wayne
"I was going to wait until I had heard all of both CDs, but I've decided to tell you now: your utterly fluid control
of your voice through its wide range is AMAZING! It's so much fun to hear you interpret the variety of songs you chose! Wow. I knew you would be good, but I had no idea!" Gray (guitarist)
From the founder of CoreSinging and author of multiple vocal pedagogy and singing books:
“Nancy is a superb teacher and pedagogue. Her quest for learning about the voice is admirable.” Meribeth Dayme, Ph.D.
From the editor of Opera Pronto:
"Dear Nancy, This community will miss you greatly, for you have been a great motivator and leader in so many important activities in the cultural life here. I wish you happiness and hope you find joy in your new adventures in Arizona. Vaya con dios." Charles C. Ralph, Colorado Opera Network, www.operapronto.info
From a former student:
Nancy was my vocal coach when I lived in Colorado many years ago. She helped me grow from being unsure of my voice and capability, to helping me find the confidence to sing in public and eventually move to Nashville to pursue songwriting and perform in a city that boasts some of the best. More than this, I consider Nancy to be an integral person in helping me become who I am today. Not only did she help me become a MUCH better singer, she also supported me and believed in me when I didn't believe in myself. If you are an aspiring singer of any skill level or any age, I highly recommend Nancy. If I lived closer, I'd be back in her studio in a heartbeat!

From a colleague:
Teaching from both sides of the brain: Nancy Harris completed the CoreSinging TM Teacher Certification intensive workshop with CoreSinging Founder Meribeth Dayme, PhD. The course involved teaching and performing strategies using eastern and western philosophies and energy work. Previously Nancy had completed a course in Vocology and voice science. These training programs, along with Nancy's degrees and teaching experience give her the resources to address the whole singer.
Cynthia Vaughn (voice teacher)
From a colleague:
Nancy is a consummate and inspirational musician and artist. While in the Opera Colorado chorus, she worked diligently and patiently with many of the chorus (particularly the women singers) and humbly accepted all of the kudos that she richly deserved. She also taught our son piano when he was a young child and inspired him to learn piano and write his own compositions - on Garage Band, the computerized app. I've also been to non-operatic performances featuring Nancy, and she is also a very thoughtful, meticulous actor.
