What is Vocal Fitness?
Most people would never participate in an athletic activity without taking some lessons to learn the basic skills to become successful. Singing is no different. The parts of the body primarily responsible for generating vocal sound are muscles capable of responding positively to physical training, and your voice will improve when they are strong, flexible, and working properly. Well-trained muscles for singing easily produce clear tones throughout the range, improve the overall stamina of the voice, and bring the entire instrument into balance.

Do I need to be able to read music to learn this material?
No, it is not necessary to be able to read music, although music for each vocal exercise is included in the book.

Can you learn to sing on your own?
This book focuses on developing new muscle memory through vocal exercise primarily in the medium and low ranges to create a solid vocal technique, and the exercises are pretty straightforward, and easy to learn and execute.

Does this program apply to all styles of singing?
Almost every singer can benefit from some kind of vocal training that improves their vocal tone and breathing. This course seeks to improve your vocal fitness so that you can have a better foundation on which to sing your own style. Once you create a strong, reliable vocal sound, you can add your style of music to it.

How is the course any different than watching videos on the Internet?
Many singers turn to the Internet to learn more about how to improve their singing, and there are many videos offering quick answers to vocal challenges. But what is often missing is a long-term, progressive program to teach vocal technique methodically. Training a singing voice takes time, and there are no shortcuts to a great technique.

How long does it take to see improvement?
When a singer commits to practicing this vocal technique correctly, with thoughtfulness, discipline and patience, the time they invest will pay them back many times over. The process of singing (and speaking) is an ingrained habit, so consistent and deliberate practicing of the vocal exercises is required to allow the muscles to learn new form and position. You can expect measurable improvement as long as you take this approach and practice consistently.

The length of time it takes to improve a singing voice also depends on an individual’s vocal goals. A singer training for an operatic or musical theater career will spend far more time perfecting their technique and building their voice than one who sings in a less vocally demanding style. Training a singing voice takes time, and there are no shortcuts to a great technique.
