​​Founded by Hilerie Klein Rensi in 2011, Higher Voice Studio has quickly become the most sought after voice studio in the regional Pittsburgh Area.  Bringing her expertise as a private voice instructor, coach and professional opera, musical theater and rock singer, Hilerie has taught over 1000 students who have ranged from professional country singers to high school students looking towards a career in classical music. Responding to the growing need of excellence in vocal education, Hilerie began training talented and aspiring voice teachers creating a place where students can learn from and be supported by multiple experts at the same time while receiving a unified vision of healthy, solid vocal technique. Now offering Music Together® classes for children ages 0-5, Higher Voice Studio continues its mission to provide the most complete education for the complete artist at any and every age.
