"We have been so pleased with Dr. Heyl!  I've really noticed an improvement in my 16 year old son's voice.   Not only does he sound better, he's more motivated.  He loves going to voice lessons now.  Perhaps the best testament is what my son says about him... 'in a word, he's awesome!  He's knowledgeable, easy to understand and I work really well with him.'  What more could a parent want?"   -Kate Norlie

Dr. Heyl is a terrific voice teacher. He is extremely knowledgeable yet down to earth which allows you to excel under his superb musicianship. As a high school choir director, I have applied his methods with great success. I highly recommend Dr. Heyl!!!  -Danny Dumaine


Auditions for a large St. Louis choral group were always fairly uneventful, ending in something like “glad to have you back for another year.”  After taking lessons from Jeffrey for six weeks the response at the latest audition was strikingly different: “I don’t remember your voice sounding that rich.  Who are you taking lessons from?” –Greg Upchurch

Dr. Jeffrey Heyl is an outstanding music performer, director, educator, coach, and worship planner.  He wonderfully combines strong musical ability with a deep biblical and theological understanding of worship.  While traditionally and classically trained he also has appreciation for and ability to incorporate contemporary expressions of worship as well.  I highly recommend him for personal voice training, choral consulting, and worship team coaching.  He can also teach on the history of church music as well as liturgy planning.  –Dr. Mark Dalbey, Vice President, Covenant Theological Seminary

I have known Dr. Jeffrey Heyl as a teacher, minister, musician, teacher, and colleague for over ten years.  I have worked on the faculty with Dr. Heyl and observed his excellent work in developing singers in his vocal studio at MBU.  I have worked with Dr. Heyl in preparing students for solos in the choral program.  I have conducted Dr. Heyl as a featured soloist in choral concerts at MBU and also enjoyed his solo performances with the St. Louis Symphony Chorus and his solo recitals. 

Dr. Heyl upholds the highest standards of musical excellence in his performances and his teaching.   His students always show steady development in both technical and expressive artistry.

Dr. Heyl has always been an excellent collaborator and has gladly assisted with the Choral program, the Musical Theatre program, the string ensemble, and many other aspects of the Music and Fine Arts at Missouri Baptist University.

I also know Dr. Heyl to be an outstanding church musician.  He has the ability to prepare and lead worship in a wide variety of styles and is an excellent mentor for both lay and student worship leaders.

I prize my friendship with Jeffrey and know him to be a generous and gifted person who will enrich the lives of his students and colleagues.  He is an outstanding teacher and a wonderful musician who is committed to excellence in education and performance. -Dr. Larry Smith, Missouri Baptist University

This is a letter of recommendation for Jeffrey Heyl. I have worked with Dr. Heyl in several areas. He has been a colleague in the Music Department at Missouri Baptist University where he taught voice and various other courses.  He communicates really well with college students and is highly respected as a voice teacher. The students respect him for his musicianship and professionalism. He gets excellent results with students and they perform with confidence and with a high degree of musicality.

I was the accompanist for him for 5 years when he was the Director of Music at Kirk of the Hills Presbyterian Church. He is an excellent conductor, in both choral and instrumental music. We performed a wide variety of music at the Kirk for orchestra and choir and for orchestra alone. Many of the musicians hired for the orchestra are professional musicians in the St. Louis area. Several of them told me personally that they would save dates in their performing calendar to participate in the music at the Kirk because they valued Jeffrey’s leadership and musicianship. In addition to his conducting skills, he is a prolific arranger of all kinds of music—choral music, instrumental arrangements of choral accompaniments, praise and worship arrangements, and original orchestral pieces.

I highly respect Jeffrey as a colleague and as a friend. I have collaborated with him as his personal accompanist for various solo vocal events. Our most recent collaboration was a solo recital featuring Schubert’s Die Winterreise. He is an inspiring performer and is easy to work with.


I have complete confidence recommending Jeffrey Heyl and I would be happy to provide further information if needed.  -Dr. Cathy Benton, Missouri Baptist University
