For Jeff, training the voice is not just about improving tone or enabling singers to sing higher and more powerfully. It’s also about equipping singers with the ability to use their voices to communicate a message with conviction. And it’s about empowering singers to become more than they believe they can be and to accomplish more with their voices than they had previously thought was possible.
“I strive to make every coaching session one that launches singers toward a voice that is completely unhindered by their current physical and emotional limitations. The way a person uses their voice is reflective of their identity. So elevating the way a person sings, in turn, improves the way they view themselves.” -Jeff Mathena
It is common for Jeff’s students to discover areas of their voice that they never even knew existed. He has a gift for increasing singers' abilities, while simultaneously decreasing the effort needed to use them.
Like many singers, Jeff spent years struggling to find answers to his vocal struggles. He finally found what he was looking for in a teacher that would eventually become his mentor, not only as a singer, but as a coach, as well. His breakthroughs became his inspiration for guiding others to discover their own potential and to experiencing the pure joy of singing with the voice they were always meant to have.
Jeff’s work has influenced some of the top voices in the industry today, including Joel & Luke Smallbone (For King & Country), Kari Jobe, Phil Wickham, Moriah Peters (TRALA), Trevor Terndrup (Moon Taxi), Mike Weaver (Big Daddy Weave), Micah Tyler, Jeremy Riddle, Cody Carnes, and Shane Barnard (Shane & Shane). He has trained singers on six continents, and over 50 countries. He serves as a guest speaker and coach at conferences and seminars all over the world, and has authored the world’s premier vocal training program “Vocal Breakthrough.”
