Jaime Vendera, author of Raise Your Voice, has launched a new online vocal school that teaches rock singers how to sing higher notes, build vocal stamina, and improve pitch, all without hurting their voices.
“One of the biggest challenges new singers face is all the bad advice out there on singing and vocal technique,” said Vendera. “If a guitarist ruins his guitar strings, he can go buy another set. But vocalists only have one set of cords, so it’s very important to protect your voice. The Vendera Vocal Academy teaches singers to unlock their vocal potential without damaging their cords.”
Founder of Superior Vocal Health and vocal health expert, David Aaron Katz, echoes Vendera’s statements on vocal habits and care.
“Your body is your instrument. As a singer, you must take care of your body and your voice,” Katz elaborated. “The voice can be trained to sing higher or lower, but you must make sure you are doing it in a healthy way that protects the voice.”
Jaime’s vocal training method, called the Isolation Method, is about training the voice in a very specific way. First, the aim is to release all strain and stress from the body. Second, singers are trained to bridge what is commonly referred to as “the break.” Finally, the goal is to strengthen the muscles used to create sound to allow the singer to reach higher notes without vocal damage.
Jaime has been teaching for nearly twenty years, and many of his students applaud his methods.
“My vocal range and stamina greatly improved once I mastered Jaime’s techniques. Thanks to Jaime, I’m able to sing night after night and record my best in the studio!” – Clayton Stroope, Thriving Ivory/Midnight Cinema
“While on tour, Jaime came out to see me perform with Alter Bridge. Unfortunately, I was so sick it was rough making it through the set. It looked as if we were going to have to cancel the next show. Jaime spent some time giving me some tips that helped me regain my voic eand by the next night, I was able to perform the show. He is fantastic!” – Myles Kennedy, Alter Bridge/Slash
Jaime Vendera is the author of over a dozen books, including Raise Your Voice, a book that is praised as many vocalists as “the singer’s bible.” He has also written other revolutionary vocal training books such as Raise Your Voice 2: The Advanced Manual, The Ultimate Breathing Workout, and Reclaim Your Voice. He holds a world record for being the first person to shatter glass with his voice, unamplified, on live television. He has appeared on shows such as Dr. Oz, Good Morning America, Superhuman Showdown.
