Sound guidance for your voice

As a singer, I know your frustration. I’ve been through similar struggles that you might be facing right now – whether you’re a beginner or a seasoned artist. I remember the feeling of wanting to level up your singing, but not having a clue where to start. 

Like many, I always thought a powerful sound is created by pushing hard or yelling. Needless to say, I’ve had my share of voice strain and even ended up with bleeding vocal cords after countless nights of pushing too hard.

My pursuit of vocal mastery has involved investing a lot of time and money in various singing courses and teachers. But it’s like being lost in a maze, everyone claiming to hold the key, yet leaving you with more questions than answers. Very few teachers back then, and even now, know how to sing rock without pushing or causing strain. And the few who do know, don’t describe it in a way where you can visualize and implement the techniques easily without damaging your throat.

So, I do what I do best. I deconstructed the voice, learned the fundamentals, learned how I was forcing the note, and then I figured out how to shape the voice instead. The same sound, as light and simple as possible.

I’ve spent a lot of time with my students deconstructing the voice and helping them create a powerful sound as well as a deep understanding of the voice. Over time, I’ve put together the best techniques and methods that have taken them from struggling to successful, confident singers. These methods not only help reclaim your voice after injury or illness but also allow you to explore new dimensions of singing – with control and confidence.

Now I want to put this knowledge out into the world to help you and others like you avoid the long, hard, and painful road of trial and error that I had to go through.

My journey has been a blend of persistence, learning from various sources, and honing techniques that work. I’m here to share my insights and help you navigate your own path. No need to stumble through the guesswork like I did – I’ve distilled years of experience into a comprehensive guide. Let’s walk this journey together, and I’m here as a guide every step of the way.

I’ve taken voice lessons over ten years with three other vocal coaches, before I started with Rock Singing Lessons, and none of them got me to feel and understand the fundamentals of singing as you have. The images and metaphors you use make a lot of sense, and I’ve felt my voice improving consistently from our first lesson. You’ve given me a lot of confidence, not just with singing, but in my voice in general. I was seriously considering quitting before I started lessons with you, and I’m glad I made one last try.
