"It's so well organized and appropriate for all levels, thank you."
Martin Green, Director of Vocal Studies, Citrus College
"Thank you so much for doing all of this work for me."
Deanna Delore, Vocal Instructor, Hancock Jr. College
"Your guidebook has been a constant companion—I've stuck with it more than any other program I've ever tried. It's been a delight and a pleasure to work with, and I really can't thank you enough for putting it out there."
"I ordered your workouts Volumes I and II, and wanted you to know how happy I am with your incredibly comprehensive work."
After the release of my first No Scales, Just Songs Vocal Workout, I heard from singers all over the world. They all loved the workout, but they wanted some new songs to sing. So I wrote and recorded Volume 2: it uses the same method to cover similar singing technique material. This time I included a longer guidebook and eighteen new songs that gradually increase in range and difficulty.
Beginning Singers: learn how to sing correctly and build your vocal power and range by singing through the workout at your own pace, with or without the guidebook.
Experienced Singers: skip the audio singing lessons and just use the set of songs to warm up and maintain your vocal technique and strength.
The No Scales, Just Songs Vocal Workout Vol. 2 includes:
• Two CDs of 18 fully produced songs and audio singing lessons. Disc #1 includes the songs with vocals and instructional introductions. Disc #2 has the same songs without vocals, followed by a section on how to stylize the songs.
• A 76-page guidebook that has detailed vocal technique information, troubleshooting hints, and vocal stylizing ideas for each song, as well as chapters on dealing with colds, allergies, the environment, and aging vocal cords.
Sing the Warmup Set: to warm up, breathe correctly, increase your range, and to build vocal control, resonance and better tone.
Sing the Workout Set: to increase your volume, vocal endurance, sustenance, belting ability, and pitch dexterity.
Three versions are available: Alto/Bass/High Tenor, Baritone/Soprano, and an expanded version including all four Alto/Bass & Baritone/Soprano CDs.
