I’ve spent the last 28 years in the trenches working with singers just like you.

Singers with a dream to sing in front of big crowds who, no matter how many Youtube videos they watch from self-proclaimed vocal experts, can’t break through and win auditions.

Singers who have a performance gig and are getting some traction, but who know that even though they’ve gotten pretty good, they would be having so much more success if they could sing strong, powerful notes in their head voice.

Singers who have had successful careers outside of music, wonder to themselves “is there anything more to life?”, and then relight the flame of a dream they once had long ago: to sing in a band.

The result of these decades of work is a comprehensive, science-based, TVS vocal training method that gives you a crystal clear path to singing the way you’ve always wanted to…the way you know you can sing.

Let’s take a quick tour to see what’s in the course…

Stage 4 - Integrated Training Routines

In this module, you’ll be initiated into Integrated Training Routines, which are like vocal workouts with intelligence.

From the TVS perspective, vocal exercises are not just “workouts.” They’re “Integrated Training Routines” made up of a smartly chosen onset, singing vowel, and vocalization.

Around here, we take the perspective that vocal training is exactly like pro athletic training. These integrated training routines are the equivalent of an athlete’s training routines in the gym.

The “ITRs” empower you to customize your own vocal workouts to address your own unique vocal goals.

And again, each lesson has video demonstrations, solo piano mp3 files for you to practice with at slow and fast speeds, male and female versions, and notation for you to use during practice.
