American Idol vocal coach, Adriana McPhee, is one of the most in demand vocal and performance coaches in the business.  With students spanning all over the globe, Adriana is committed to inspiring each student to reach their full potential.

Born and raised in Los Angeles, Adriana is the scion of an acclaimed show business family; her mother is celebrity vocal coach, Peisha McPhee, and her sister is American Idol alum, star of NBC’s SMASH, and most recently CBS‘ SCORPION, Katharine McPhee.

Teaching has been in the McPhee blood for generations; her grandfather Roger Fee was dean of The University of Denver’s Music School.  During their childhood, both Adriana and Katharine would come home from school to find their living room filled with their mother’s students.  They would spend countless hours watching their mother teach, and listening to the singers’ voices fill their childhood home.

In addition to Adriana’s private practice at McPhee International Vocal Studios in Los Angeles, she has also served as vocal coach on the singing show phenomenon, American Idol.  Her work on Idol has given Adriana an inside look into what it takes to become a true success.  She has personally guided the contestants as they embark onto the biggest platform any singer could wish for.  And last summer, Adriana also served as a preliminary judge on Idol, traveling from city to city, auditioning thousands of Idol hopefuls.

Whether teaching her performance workshop The Singer’s Workout, or coaching a contestant on American Idol, Adriana is called to inspire every singer to reach for the stars, sing with their heart, and develop their inherent gifts that the world needs now, more than ever before.
