What you'll learn
  • Mixed voice, belting, falsetto, breath control, smooth transitions (no voice cracks!) and all other vocal ‘secrets’ explained in incredibly simple terms. No more strain on your throat... All the skills needed to sing like a professional
  • Daily warmup & helpful exercises designed to get into excellent vocal shape, and constantly improve.
Requirements
  • Never force anything, especially when suffering from vocal injury or fatigue (in which case I would advise to just listen, and start practicing when you’ve got your vocal health back)
Description

Learn how to sing online: This Udemy vocal technique course is a complete masterclass with original, high quality singing lessons and vocal coachings. You will also receive a FULL E-BOOK with all the information you need in order to learn how to sing.


Hi darlings!

My name is Maru, and I'm going to teach you how to sing! Online, at a world-class level. Not the typical things you have heard before, I’m going to explain EVERYTHING in a way that is incredibly simple, for anyone.

I started my career as a psychologist in the Netherlands, and quickly realized I wanted to follow my passion for music. Long story short, I really did not know how to sing or how to perform at all, I was far from a natural singer. The one thing I had was the sheer determination to learn.

I’d love to share with you how I went from an ‘ok singer’ to consistently getting the most wonderful praise for my vocals, hearing my songs on the radio, getting signed as a singer/songwriter for Sony/ATV and singing in front of large & appreciative audiences all over the world.

This may sound far-fetched, but the truth is: singing is really very simple. Not necessarily easy right away (you gotta put the work in!), but...simple :) I use a very easy-to-remember framework that can fix any issue, and that can maximize your potential quickly.


Here’s what you can expect from this course:

Section 1 will describe the technical framework that I use, and that has helped not only me, but hundreds of other singers reach new levels. At end of this section you will find some helpful singing exercises that you can use as a daily vocal warmup.

Section 2 goes deeper into breathing technique and breath control, which is essential for a singer! Finally a simple answer to the mysterious phrase ‘sing from the diaphraghm’...

Section 3 will focus in on advanced techniques; how to add character to your vocals and find your ‘sound’. What distinguished a good singer from a great singer? Learn how to sing in a more interesting way here! Lotsss of helpful singing exercises :)

Section 4 addresses the most frequently asked questions and concerns I receive about singing, including ‘How do I stop voice cracks?’, ‘My throat hurts when I sing’ and ‘How do I sing with a cold?’.


My former and current students are now releasing songs professionally, doing regular live gigs, are getting private auditions on talent shows such as ‘The Voice’ & ‘America’s Got Talent’, and are confident singers on stage and in the studio. I've been very fortunate to sing professionally after genuinely thinking I did not have a chance, and now YOU can learn how to sing online, anytime, anywhere.


Happy singing!

Maru
