How can you be a better singer?

Whether you’re building a career as a professional singer or you sing for fun, we all want to know how can we improve.

Great Singing is NOT an accident!

Singers are vocal athletes and just like any other athlete they must learn to fine-tune the way their body works. While some singers may find that imagery or vibration sensations are all they need to learn to sing, many others excel when they connect exercises with function. The information in this course will empower you to overcome barriers and accelerate your progress.

There are NO secrets! Shortcuts do NOT exist!

There is no magic bullet to singing well. No secret recipe. The problem is many singers have not been taught exactly what happens in the body when singing. So they wander from teacher to teacher, book to book, course to course seeking answers. This course was designed to pull back the veil. To show you what is actually happening when you sing, so you can dissect everything you learn regardless of the source. These are fundamentals that anyone can learn. There are no secrets when you understand vocal function.

Knowing how it works is the key to making it work!

We are going to show you exactly what is happening in your body when you sing. You will discover how the breath, vocal folds, and vocal tract interact. You will learn how to break down the voice into trainable parts. You will finally understand terms like chest, head, and mix, and what is happening in your body to make those sounds. We also show you example exercises, to connect theory with practice. As a BONUS, we will tell you how to find the right voice teacher for you.

Knowledge is power

The number one thing stopping most singers from making progress is a lack of understanding. Most singers don't really understand what they are doing when they "use the diaphragm" or what is physically happening when they "sing in chest voice" or "lift the palate." Therefore progress is slow. But when you understand exactly what makes each of those things happen, along with the mechanics of the rest of your voice, everything changes. All of a sudden exercises make sense, you use them to achieve specific outcomes, and you are able to have more productive conversations with teachers and coaches.

Introducing How The Voice Works!

If you are ready to stop feeling stuck, start making progress, and achieve break-throughs that have eluded you for months or even years, this is the course for you. This course will show you exactly what is happening when you sing so you can finally get the results you've been seeking.

Voice Science???

Put it forward. Make it spin. Stand tall. Keep your palate up. If you’re like me, you heard a lot of directions like these on YouTube, in voice lessons, or when talking with other singers. Sometimes of those ideas worked, but more often than not they didn’t. When it worked it was exciting, if you could repeat. If I couldn’t repeat it or make it work, my mood spiraled down hill. How could I be investing so much money in my voice training and still not be succeeding? Luckily I discovered voice science! 

Bodybuilders don’t just go into the gym and lift using imagery, they learn the names of the muscles and the best way to condition them. Guitar players don’t just throw their hands up in the air when their guitar isn’t working, they get online and learn how it works so they can fix it. But for centuries, singers have struggled to put the pieces together because they don’t fully understand what all the pieces are or how they work.

You might be wondering why this matters

Want more power? You can get it by learning how to manage your respiratory system. When you understand the difference between pressure and flow, active and passive force, and belly-in vs. belly-out, you will be able to sing with more power and less strain.

Have a break you want to iron out of your voice? To do that, you need to coordinate your intrinsic laryngeal muscles. When you know how the vocal folds vibrate and how that impacts registration, you will be able to sing through your break in any way you want.

Struggling with nasality or a muffled tone? When you know what parts of your body affect vocal tract length and width, you will be able to adjust the nasality, brightness, and warmth in your voice without tension.

Tired of trying to rid yourself of tongue or jaw tension? When you know which muscles are causing that tension, you can identify the best exercises to train your motor system to develop the coordination you need for the kind of music you sing.

At the end of this course you will

  • Understand why posture matters and how bad posture can have a negative impact on your vocal tone
  • Be able to identify where your diaphragm is and how it interacts with the rest of your respiratory system to manage airflow and pressure.
  • Understand the difference between pressure and flow.
  • Know how to coordinate the muscles that adjust the vocal folds to alter pitch and registration
  • Be able to isolate chest and head, and will understand how to develop your mix
  • Learn how to warm-up using a science-based routine
  • Be able to identify where the soft palate is, how it moves, and how its movement affects vocal quality
  • Locate the muscles that cause jaws tension and learn how to keep them from engaging when singing
  • Learn how microphones alter what you hear when listening to recording artists
  • Understand basic concepts from motor learning and exercise physiology that can be applied to voice training.

Singing should not be hard!

The only reason it's hard is because for centuries voice teachers have taught students based on the way they learned how to sing.

That made a lot of sense in the pre-science era. However, now we know the mechanics behind how we sing and teachers can tailor vocal training to each student’s unique physical attributes. But it only works if YOU also know how the instrument works.

Ask any guitarist, drummer, or keyboardist how their gear works and they can tell you. Wouldn’t you like to be able to do the same?

When I was in college our Dean used to call the students singers and musicians. Because in his mind, singers were not the same - in a bad way. But when you can talk about your instrument like any other musician, things are different.

You want to be the singer in the room who is taken seriously, you want to be the one who actually knows how the voice works. Whether you are a hobbyist or a pro, you have nothing to lose and everything to gain.

Frequently Asked Questions

Still have questions before joining? No problem we've answered our most frequent questions below to help you with your purchasing decision.

I’ve heard that singers don’t really need to know what is happening in their voice. Is that true?

+

No, its not. Voice teachers were training singers for centuries before we knew how the instrument worked. They had years of experience and didn’t see how some fancy scientists could help. But things have changed. Now we have great access to scientific articles, people who translate the science into practical exercises, and singers all over the world who have been trained by science-based teachers. People including Celine Dion, Cynthia Erivo, Trey Anastasio, Arianna Grande, and Selena Gomez have all worked with science-based vocal coaches.

I don’t have a strong science background, is this course going to be over my head?

+

No! Voice science is way more accessible than many other fields. In fact, the science delivered in this course is about how things work. Biomechanics. It won’t require you to do any fancy math or experiments, it only requires you to explore and think outside the box.

What’s the most effective way to use How The Voice Works?

+

Take your time to work through each module using the course videos and workbook. Then think about your past singing experiences and whether or not what you were trying to do was in line with how your voice works. If not, try the exercises again with your newfound knowledge.

When does the course start?

+

Instantly! As soon as you enroll you'll get access to the course, all the lessons, and templates.

Are the lessons inside the course pre-recorded?

+

The lessons inside this course are pre-recorded so that you can start the course and work through the lessons at your own pace. There is no need to show up at a specific time, you'll be able to login and start watching at what time suits you best.

What will I need to watch the lessons inside the course?

+

To watch the lessons you will need an internet connection to stream the videos, and then you can access the course on any device including a desktop computer, laptop, tablet or mobile.

The Time is Now

This course is not a gimmick and its not built on the success of celebrities that were already good when then started taking lessons. Instead, its built on facts. Things we know to be true about vocal function. Instead of teaching you to sing like someone else, it teaches you to think so you can find yourself. So let's get started on this journey and help you finally understand How The Voice Works.
