Ron Browning

Maestro Lorin Maazel, the former world-renowned conductor for the New York Philharmonic, presently the conductor for the Munich Philharmonic, said, “Ron Browning is simply a master! The singers absolutely love working with him!” 

28-time Grammy Winner, Alison Krauss [Union Station Band] says  "Studying with Ron Browning has been the most exciting thing that could've happened to my life as a musician! I haven't felt this happy and intrigued with singing since I was a kid. The joy I feel at the thought of what I might learn at the next lesson keeps me up at night. He is the highest note!

Recently, the Nashville Arts Magazine called Ron a "vocal coach extraordinaire" and "a creative tour de force that nurtures and supports the beginning student and the successful artist.”

Ron Browning is an internationally sought voice, performance, and crossover coach based in Nashville, Tennessee. His clients include Grammy® Award recipients and major recording artists in all genres of music. He has also had the privilege of coaching leading singers from the Metropolitan and New York City Operas, and from other major domestic and international opera houses.

He is a member of NATS, the National Association of Teachers of Singing, NYSTA, New York Singing Teacher’s Association, and a voting member of The Grammy Foundation® and Country Music Award Association.

Ron has traveled the globe with high-profile celebrity singers, grooming them for events, such as the Nobel Peace Prize Ceremony Concert and Royal Command Performances.

Ron holds music degrees from UCLA, California State University at Northridge, and the University of Kentucky. Ron is on staff as a voice and performance coach for the Castleton Opera Festival, under the leadership of Maestro Lorin Maazel.  Ron developed the voice and performance curriculum for the Nashville Jazz Workshop where he is currently on staff.

Ron is also an accomplished producer, jazz pianist, and successful songwriter, which earned him Artist in Residence for the city of Winnipeg, Canada early in his music career.

Grammy® winner, Patti LaBelle, called Ron a “miracle worker” after he helped her quickly and restored her voice from a mere whisper by show time, avoiding a costly show cancelation. She wrote a note to him, saying, "I never believed in vocal coaches until today....You have made a believer out of me and I thank you for my voice!"  

Accolades about Ron’s work by major artists on TV and radio talk shows, press, and liner notes of CDs have earned Ron the title of “Voice Coach to the Stars.” Wynonna Judd says in the liner notes of her 2006 CD A Classic Christmas, “When the student is ready, the teacher appears. God sent Ron to me just in time.” Wynonna praised Ron from the Schirmerhorn Concert Stage, saying that Ron had taken her to the next level of vocal performance."
