I'm Robert Carrasco. 

My Passion is "Transforming Singers into Vocal Artists".

Me as 'Aldolpho' in "The Drowsy Chaperone" National Tour (USA/Canada)

     I'm a Professional Singer and Expert Vocal Instructor. I believe that if you’re motivated to become a better vocal performer, regardless of your age or experience level, then you can achieve your vocal goals.

     For 15 + years I've helped singers of every style to safely connect their voice from the top down, quickly find solutions for vocal problems, and give them full artistic control of their sound- both on stage and in the recording studio. I'll help you become a confident vocalist by removing your vocal "barriers" and guiding you to rediscover and strengthen your limitless vocal possibilities. 

     You will always be given clear step-by-step instruction that is easy-to-learn, 100% Healthy, Effective, Innovative, Transformative, and Fun.

“I’ve had a lot of vocal teachers and coaches over the years and Robert is one that has the most to do with fundamentally making a difference in my skills as a singer- and as a result, has given my voice wings!! He’s not only a very funny and nice guy, but he explains the voice and the mechanics of the voice in ways that are clear and concise...and you’ll never forget!”
— Patric Knight (Dancer, Singer, Actor)

Is the RCVoiceStudio the right fit for you?


If you have clear singing goals and are 100% motivated to achieve them… then YES! You're in the right place!

I can help singers of all experience and talent levels, musical styles, and ages to reach their goals.

Examples of goals include:

  • Becoming a Professional Singer

  • Preparing for Auditions (musical, opera, concert, college, The Voice, America’s Got Talent, etc.)

  • Preparing for your Studio Recording Session

  • Preparing a Role for a musical

  • Getting your Voice Back Into Shape and Reducing Vocal Fatigue

  • Keeping your Voice Healthy while on tour

  • Adjusting and Navigating through the ‘Male Adolescent Vocal Change”

  • Sing for your Wedding Anniversary or Rocking your Favorite Song for Karaoke

We may not be a great fit if:

  • You (or your child) are simply "exploring the idea of maybe wanting to sing”. For very young children in particular, I often will refer them to music classes that offer a wide range of musical experiences until they are focused on improving their singing.

  • You are Not Motivated To Put Forth Consistent Effort to Improve your Singing outside of your normal lesson. I offer free online instructional videos to help you train at your convenience between lessons. However, many students- especially very young singers- don’t realize the consistent focus and effort it takes to improve their singing and often get easily discouraged.

  • Your singing goals aren’t clear. Singing is a lifelong pursuit, so having clear goals or milestones is essential for overall success.

Singers with clear singing goals tend to fit best with my teaching.

I’d love to chat with you about YOUR singing goals!

Shoot a me a message and we’ll set up a free 15 online video chat to discuss your singing goals, get to know each other, and see if we’re a good fit. I’m even happy to refer you to another great teacher if we feel it’s in your best interest!

“Thanks so much for the wonderful session today Robert. Afterwards, I sang for 90 minutes using all the techniques we talked about- and my throat feels better than before I started!”

My Story...

Me as Inspector Javert in Les Miserables performing "Stars". HI

Me as Inspector Javert in Les Miserables performing "Stars". HI

Once upon a time in a galaxy far, far, away...... 

     I started out as a Choral Singer.  Then I trained diligently to become an Operatic Tenor & Classical Concert Soloist. I toured Eastern Europe, the USA, and performed with the Los Angeles Opera Chorus. I've even shared the stage with legends like Placido Domingo and Bobby McFerrin.

     In New York City I decided to expand my career into Musical Theatre and ultimately performed in National Tours(USA/Canada), Regional Theatres, and Off-Broadway. Touring the USA/Canada while performing the role of Aldolpho in the hit musical The Drowsy Chaperone is perhaps my favorite role of all time! I've also sung in the recording studio for several original cast musical theatre albums (Williamsburg! The Musical & Eva Del Barrio) and indie albums(Agua Trip: Genetics). For over 20+ years I've been able to keep my own voice healthy, consistent, and constantly improving. I'm proud to say that I have never missed a performance due to illness- even when performing nearly every night while on tour!

     My inspiration to help other singers originally came from classical style voice training with the amazing Fred Carama. He saved my singing career from almost ending due to poor vocal techniques I'd learned from other teachers. He showed me how to connect to my true sound and keep it healthy.

I was later trained in the art of teaching singers through Holistic Vocology (taught by the amazing Tom Burke-NYC and Robert Sussuma-NYC). My holistic teaching approach incorporates the elements of Estill Voice(a core component), classical and contemporary styles training, speech rehabilitation, Pilates, Yoga, Alexander Technique, dance,  my professional performance experience, martial arts, freestyle skateboarding, and the Pareto Principle (the “80/20 rule”).  I also hold a BM in Vocal Music Education from Chapman University in CA and was awarded a graduate Fellowship at the University of Illinois at Champaign/Urbana where I worked on a MM in Voice Performance.

     Now the RCVoiceStudio is in Austin, TX and I'm living the dream! I'm working with talented musical theatre performers, singer-songwriters, pop & rock vocalists, classical singers, and providing lots of audition coaching. My singers have been successful auditioning for lead roles with Kids Acting,  the Elite Ensemble for GAHSMTA, and the Zach Theatre Pre-Professional Company.  I'm super stoked to be teaching weekly group singing classes at TexArts of Austin as part of their Triple Threat program. This last season at TexArts I musical directed productions of Willy Wonka Jr. and Seussical Jr. and most recently was proud to direct a full production of Shrek Jr. with only just nine days of rehearsal.

     When I'm not helping transform singers into inspired vocal artists, I spend my free time practicing old-school flatland freestyle skateboarding tricks, surfing & coaching at the NLand Surf Park in Austin, rereading Harry Potter (or The Lord of the Rings), taking hikes & watching The Voice with my beautiful wife Sarah.
