Description

SINGING SIMPLIFIED will get you on your way to becoming an excellent singer... faster than you thought possible! Believe it or not, you already have the "built-in" ability to be a great singer. You were born with a natural vocal range and I'm going to help you to tap into it - quickly and easily, while having FUN of course!  We'll combine technique and everyday emotive sounds in your vocal training to help you understand that singing isn't as difficult or scary as you thought it was. 

The course includes: 

  • 1 video lesson per day, 6 days a week, for 8 weeks. Over 3 HOURS of high resolution singing lessons! 
  • FREE PERSONALIZED VOCAL ASSESSMENT FROM ME.  
  • 30+ exercises (Mp3's) you can download to practice your lessons anywhere!
  • The 26 page SINGING SIMPLIFIED Workbook that reviews each video lesson and the exercises from each lesson.  An extremely helpful companion throughout the course.
  • My 66 page e-book: "5 Shortcuts To Great Songwriting".  Many teachers have bought this book from me to help them teach their students about music theory and song structure.  It's my bonus gift to you!


Also, we're going to train your brain as well.  Your mindset and your emotions are so very important when it comes to singing.  You'll learn how to let stress and fear fall to the wayside, and focus on the emotion of the song.

This is the perfect course for TOTAL BEGINNERS, to people who have a little experience singing, but haven't taken many singing lessons and don't really understand much about technique or how the voice works.  If your goal is to sing Pop, Rock, Country, Blues, R&B, Indie, Alternative... any popular style of music, this course is a great match for you.  (This course is NOT for Classical or Operatic singing. Those styles are quite different in their technique.)

In order for this system to work for you...

- You do NOT need any "natural" musical talent, singing talent, or previous vocal training

- You do NOT need to know anything about technique or how your voice works (in fact, the less you know the better, because you'll have fewer bad habits to overcome) 

- You do NOT need to understand music theory, or even know how to read music



Who this course is for:
  • Beginners who have little to no experience with singing or singing lessons, and want to sing Pop, Rock, Country, R & B, etc...
  • Anyone who has a little experience, but wants to gain more strength, control, and confidence in their voice.
  • Beginners to Intermediates who are intimidated by the idea of singing and want to take the fear out it.
  • Intermediates who feel they are "caged-in" by their technique and have trouble singing emotionally.
  • Beginners to intermediates who want to find more joy in their singing.

Hi There!

THIS IS A NO JUDGEMENT ZONE.

Tips On Practicing:

Consistency over everything!  Don't feel like you need to be practicing an hour a day or anything like that. You only need to be doing about 20 minutes or so each day.  And as with any exercising, it's also important that you stay consistent.  It's best if you do 5-6 days of the week and always give yourself a rest day!  


P.S.  You can practice your breathing as much as you like.  After all, you are doing it all day long already. :)
