You’ll need to summon a bit of grit to work through those first few awkward days of recording yourself. Almost everybody hates the sound of their voice when they first hear it on a recording. You need to remember that this is most just the discomfort of unfamiliarity – it’s not that your voice or singing is bad.
The program is spread across 8 modules that cover all key areas of your voice, coming with more than 50 singing lesson videos, 31 dynamic vocal exercise audios, and daily vocal exercise routines that will show you the steps you need to take to improve the sounding of your voice.

+ They offer a bunch of follow up courses to take your singing even farther – my favorite was the “Superior Harmony” course where I learned how to sing along with other people, recognize different musical intervals that sound best when singing together, etc.
Here are a couple exercises that will help you to develop your pitch. If you are anything like me and have heard people sing off pitch you know how bad it can sound. So check out these tips that will……

Correct breathing for singers begins with a spontaneous open breath. Upon inhalation, if ones hands are placed on the stomach – an inch below belly button, the hands will be pushed out by stomach muscles. The singer’s shoulders should be relaxed and not move up. Neck and jaw should be relaxed. Jaw needs to be unhinged. Phonation begins with the movement of the stomach inward, where one is singing while pulling the stomach muscles in. This is called “singing on the breath.” The phonation ends with the release of the abdominal muscles. It’s important to note that phonation should be ended with the release of the abs and not in one’s throat, which is vocally abusive.
For the best experience, we typically recommend 60-minute singing lessons. However, students looking for a more affordable option may want to consider a shorter lesson length of 45 or 30 minutes. On average, 45-minute singing lessons are 22% less expensive at $52, and 30-minute lessons cost 41% less at $39.
Thanks Jimmy! Yes, I work hard so I can travel a lot and write about it, and Nashville was a very memorable and fun experience – however, in terms of a music city I don’t think it even comes close to New Orleans – so if you haven’t been I’d say go check it out!
Maureen received her Master of Music from the University of Maryland 2017 with an emphasis in Opera Performance. Her teaching style is tailored for each individual student, in that what works for one student won’t necessarily work for the next (particularly in regards to singers), and strives towards finding the optimal method that encourages and helps students to improve. She firmly believes that anyone who is willing to dedicate the time and effort to learning a new instrument is capable of doing so, and looks forward to helping new students achieve their goals.
In addition to noticing your diaphragm move, think about your jaw, lips, tongue, cheeks and upper palate. Are they relaxed? What size and shape is the cavity inside your mouth? What happens to the sound if you change it? Make very small changes to consider the effects. Does it please you?
The course covers every basic aspect of singing. It also includes different vocal warm-ups and exercises. Singorama could have been a great course all-in-all except for it being totally software based, meaning all your training will only be through your computer.
This can be intimidating and unnerving at first – but it’s still less scary than singing in front of other people, right? You can be alone in your room to do it, and the only person who’ll ever hear the recordings is you. So there’s nothing to be embarrassed about.

Then I’ll do the same but with the record button pressed. Again, I keep rewinding (and erasing the recording) until I’m reasonably happy. By this time, I may still not be able to sing the song very well but I’ll certainly have learnt a whole lot about how to sing it.
That’s probably the biggest problem with learning to sing: that we start out with the wrong idea, that singing is a natural talent you need to be born with. It really isn’t. Just ask George Bevan, director of the Choir Who Can’t Sing, who specialises in helping people who think they “can’t sing” discover that they actually can.
Vocal Tip: A great way to isolate proper breathing muscles is to lie down on the floor on one’s back and place a book over lower abs. As a singer inhales, the book should be rising up. This method is easy to execute and will give one a beautiful vibrato and an agile voice, capable of singing trill and turns.
Note that if you feel any type if physical strain or especially to the extent of pain, stop practicing. This may be due to practicing these techniques in an incorrect fashion. Seek to speak with a vocal trainer, choral director, or a specialist of the vocal folds. They will be able to show you what is being done incorrectly, and offer insight for self-improvement.
Now that you’ve got correct breathing down, let’s tackle the next important element of great singing. Remember what we said earlier about your body being your instrument? It’s true — and it’s your entire body, from your head to your toes!
Just below the introduction video, you will see an option to download that lesson’s vocal exercises. One set of exercises is designed particularly for male vocalist and another set for female vocalists (Isn’t that great?)
As an instructor, I have been blessed with an ability to be relatable, relevant, musical, creative, fun, and engaging. I understand the language of music as a performer, and instructor, but most importantly, I value the ability to help the student find their own path of learning the joy of making music vocally and instrumentally. With over 18 years of private teaching experience and 30 years of group experience, I have gained a wealth of knowledge on how to be instructive and personal with the young or older beginner, intermediate and even advanced players. Let’s grow together musically.
Before the Superior Singing Method I had been struggling for years with inconsistent pitch and terribly shrill tone. I had several vocal coaches simply tell me to give up. My parents would drive me hours and get up at 4am to take me miles away to a guy that sorta helped. Turned out he was another dead end.
There are many reasons why, but the main one is that you won’t learn any bad habits. Singers who have a lot of experience singing, but not a lot of experience being coached, often times have some really bad singing habits that need to be “unlearned” first. And that can sometimes take time.
