Singer, producer, pianist and vocal instructor, Jeffrey Skouson trains some 150 students from all over the world. Most students study at his recently renovated studio in Las Vegas, while long-distance students (based in New York, Australia, and England, to name a few) take lessons by phone or over the internet via two-way cameras. With extensive experience as both a performer and educator, Jeffrey is a uniquely qualified and effective teacher.
As a performer, he was a featured soloist on USO tours and (later) on world tours with the BYU Young Ambassadors. His stage credits include lead roles in West Side Story and Saturday’s Warrior, as well as numerous guest appearances throughout the United States. Since 2002, Jeffrey has been Artistic Director and Conductor of the Red Mountain Music Company.
For two years he was Musical Director for the multi-million dollar production of Utah! at Tuacahn Center for the Performing Arts. He also produced the audio recording of that show. His studio experience, extensive musical knowledge, great ear and attention to detail make him a much sought-after producer. Jeffrey is currently vocal producing several albums in Las Vegas.
Over 30 years of study and training have made Jeffrey an expert in the field of vocal function, structure and development. As such, he frequently guest lectures at universities, colleges and vocal seminars throughout the world. Such engagements have taken place at the San Francisco Conservatory of Music, Ball State University in Indiana, and Brigham Young University.
As much as he has enjoyed his many professional opportunities and accomplishments, Jeffrey’s greatest love and source of satisfaction continues to be his wonderful family. He and his beautiful and patient wife Becky have four fantastic children: Elizabeth, Madeleine, Andrew and Joshua.
