The shockingly easy vocal method that shows you
HOW CAN YOU LEARN TO SING ONLINE?
The first vocal course that I bought was actually from the back of a guitar magazine in the late 90s – something like “anyone can sing” or “sing better in 30 days”; you know, the usual marketing crap you’ll find when you look up how to sing.
This was before the internet really took off – I received my DVD of exercises and a training pamphlet outline the general ideas.
Needless to say I was underwhelmed.
I ended up seeking out a local singing teacher to show me how it was really done – and again, was pretty underwhelmed.
I remember diving head first into every new trick or technique I was shown, only to come crashing down sooner or later with a bitter taste in my mouth about the course or teacher I’d been seeing.
I followed this “blood in, blood out” way of learning to sing for way too many years – dedicating myself wholeheartedly to whatever new and exciting approach I found, only to be disappointed as my technique went up in flames all over again and throwing the whole approach in the trash.
Does any of this sound familiar? You can replace the cassette tapes with YouTube singing lessons and replace the pamphlet with any vocal course of your choice – the format might have changed, but the marketing and popular methods have stayed the same.
Did you know that Open Throat Technique (La Gola Aperta) is actually HUNDREDS of years old and not a new trick? And that Speech Level Singing has actually been around since the 1980’s? That Estill is also from the 80’s, CVT from the 90’s and that Ken Tamplin could actually sing Tenor high C’s before he even took any vocal training (looking at you 1980’s SHOUT albums!)…
None of this stuff is new.
And none of it is really exciting.
You might be looking it up on the internet, but it’s the same swamp that I had to wade through in the 90’s looking for a method that really worked for me; it might have been books and CD’s instead of videos, but exactly the same methods.
Yep, teachers still carried on about Bel Canto and Open Throat before the internet was a thing – and generally, they still hated each other’s methods.
Yep, people were already using marketing terms like curbing, edge, modes and Open Throat before YouTube exploded with every contradictory term and technique under the sun.
And yes, there was a ton of people ‘teaching’ when they couldn’t really sing themselves.
Again, none of this is new, even if it’s being marketed to you in a new and exciting way.
So how did I REALLY learn to sing? Which method turned everything around for me? What was the secret to it all?
Nothing (and everything).
I was lucky to find a voice teacher along the way that challenged absolutely every notion of what I thought about learning – not just learning how to sing, but learning ANY skill.
He literally would not let me book any more lessons with him until I mastered each basic goal he set for me.
Seriously, I wasn’t even allowed to call him up and ask a question – I basically just had to DO IT, get it DONE and then I could ask questions later.
Initially, this was a hard pill to swallow – I wanted ANSWERS, I wanted to see endoscope videos, I wanted the names and locations of nerves, tendons and muscles and I ultimately wanted him to give me ‘his version’ of all the courses and training that I had already received prior to training with him.
Even though none of those other methods worked for me.
I spent thousands of dollars on singing lessons that didn’t work.
But still, apparently “I knew better” than a voice teacher who had something like 30 years experience training others to sing.
I took it upon myself to prove him WRONG so that he would just give me what I wanted, and share all the scientific details about singing I thought I needed to become a good singer.
So I trained those damned lip trills.
I met EVERY. SINGLE. GOAL. that he set for me.
And just when I was ready to go back and throw it all in his face as absolute BS.
I realised I had become a better singer.
Not perfect by any means.
I could connect chest and head voice.
My vowel sounds started to make sense, and when I got them right – singing was absolutely effortless.
Flying in the face of all the methods I bought previously, all the teachers I had worked with, the $15,000 I had spent of singing lessons and courses at that point so far;
Not the band.
KEEP IT SIMPLE, SAILOR.
Or better yet,
KEEP IT SIMPLE, SILLY.
By stripping my voice back to ONLY the right sounds, ONLY healthy onsets, ONLY the right approach – instead of starting with a 100 decibel yelling belt and then wondering why the hell I kept blowing out my voice – keeping it simple just WORKED.
Holy crap – my coach was right all along; singing well is MUCH easier than it’s made out to be.
And that’s what I want to share with you.
THE most simple approach to singing you’re ever going to find.
One of the few that really WORKS.
And there’s no curbing, no glottal compression, no Open Throat or Bel Canto, no speech sounds – and most of all no marketing.
Meet The Four Vocal Fundamentals;
You might be surprised to learn that EVERY single technique, term and trick out there refers directly to just one of these simple fundamentals;
- Height in the vocal tract
- Forward Placement
- Tonal Intent
- “All In One Flow”
By first mastering these base fundamentals like I did so many years ago, you’ll have the same powerful foundation as the greatest singers through history – Aretha Franklin, Chris Cornell, Layne Staley, Adele.
All MASTERS of these four powerful fundamentals.
Not one endoscope video in sight.
Not one mention of the word Curbing or Edge.
Just practical technique that you can (and should!) apply in your own singing right now.
Now that we’ve got The Four Vocal Fundamentals out of the way, I want to get absolutely SERIOUS with you for a moment.
If you’ve read this far, and you watched the video above – you must really be serious about this whole singing thing.
So I want to help you along by give you a little something extra to help you get started.
In fact, a whole LOT extra.
All my training materials, all in one place – for free.
#1 – Mastering The Art of Singing
This guide is amazing.
There’s more technique, training, insight and knowledge in this one little guide than in many paid training courses – and I’m simply giving it to you for free.
#2 – Vocal Quick Start Guide
I get it, there’s a lot of techniques and concepts to learn all at once in the masters guide, so here’s a footnote summary of everything you need to do to get started today, and how to do it.
If you’re confused about how to get started, or you’re having trouble pulling the trigger on a vocal approach, this guide is now your go-to manual for how to become a better singer.

This is what you’ve been waiting for – but noone else is ever going to show you.
Modifying your vowels is the key to extending your range in full voice with no vocal breaks, no flipping to head voice, no weakness and no strain – so it makes sense that most vocal coaches keep this powerful information close to their chest and are quite careful about how and who they share this with.
And I’m going to show you exactly how to do it in this vowel modification cheat sheet – again, completely free.
#4 – Invitation to special Vowel Modification Q&A
Phew! You’re really getting the works here.
Along with the incredible training guides I’m sharing with you, I’m also going to go out on a limb and invite you to my special Vowel Modification Q&A Training Session.
