Welcome to The Voice Connection Sound Off; a forum for users of books like Raise Your Voice, Melody to Madness, The Ultimate Breathing Workout, and Unleash Your Creative Mindset, as well as a place for Vendera Vocal Academy members to interact.

This message board was created so that singers could come together and "sound off" to help support each other during vocal development and the creative process of unleashing the creative spark that occurs when writing and producing music. Currently, myself and vocal coaches Ben Valen, Ray West, and Ryan Wall are here to respond periodicially to your questions, with new vocal coaches coming soon. But, feel free to help each other too:)

This board is here for you to ask questions about my and my fellow coach's books, videos, and MP3 programs, as well as offer others help with our vocal techniques. You may also post videos of yourself and your band to share your music and ask for critiques.

Please refrain from negative comments, profanities, spamming, and inappropriate criticisms of vocal methodologies, vocal coaches, and singers. All negative posts will be deleted and subject to banning without question. I will not respond to negative posts, because, as Mark Twain once said, “Never argue with stupid people, they will drag you down to their level and then beat you with experience.” With that said, positive criticism is welcome because that is how you'll grow as a singer during the training process.

I am French and I enrolled in Jaime's classes two months ago. But I only started training Raise your Voice # 1 for about ten days.
I had to translate the book and understand the following:
I am registered with TVS, the school of Robert LUNTHE, for 4 months. I have come to Jaime to increase my range because TVS is not specialized in this type of training, only PASSAGIO, and on this subject I think I am ok.

However, I have already increased my vocal range, going from a F4 to a C # 5, and from the beginning of the training with Jaime, so 10 days ago, I manage to catch an F5 with weird sounds , In my best days, after a day of vocal rest.

So I start the FALSETTO Slide and as my internet connection and distance does not allow for a suitable debit for online courses, I come here to ask some questions, thanking you in advance for any help you have Will bring.

Excuse also my English, which is an automatic translation from Google Translate.

I have been a musician for a long time, guitarist, and I have always sung a little with my Folk guitar, and for about 5 months I have become lead vocalist in two bands, I'm also a rhythm guitarist and soloist.
This new place within a music group is the reason why I decided to take classes and sing in the right way.

I am enrolled in singing classes, here in France, in a "classical" school. I do not learn much technique, it is difficult in France to find a good training. It is too classical. I mainly use a critical feedback from my professor in relation to my work on online courses.
