There exists a science that dictates how a beautiful tone is produced.  One of the things that can give a singer a gorgeous tone is the use of vocal resonances.  These resonances (Frontal sinus, Sphenoid sinus, Maxillary sinus and Ethmoid air cells) enhance phonation in quality of tone, intensity and color.  This results in a beautiful, rich and unique sound.   In contrast, resonating poorly will make one's voice sound thin and ordinary.  At "Beautiful Voice NJ" students spend of part of their private singing lesson learning how to resonate.
Many of us have seen it happen while watching singing competition shows like The Voice, American Idol, or The X Factor— “You’re voice is incredible, but the song choice was all wrong.”  It usually ends with an elimination, especially if it is a consistent pattern.  You might love a certain genre of music, but knowing whether a song is a good fit for your voice and audition is critical. Like many things, success is dependent on knowing your strengths and showcasing them.  So what are the best so … Read More

Nancy Salwen's book, "The Fear of Singing Breakthrough Program" is therapy that anybody can use, even an experienced singer like myself. You see, Salwen redefines singing as a human act that everybody can learn how to express. It can be learned the same way we've honed our basic skills to read, write, speak, or walk. It hearkens back to the days when most Americans had a piano in their parlor, which most or all of the children would learn how to play. Salwen posits that musical expression belongs to, and is healthy for, all people. It can bring them together, it can turn you from sad to joyful, and vice versa. It helps us process our emotions as deeply as any therapy session, and this book is your ultimate guide in doing so. There is no other tome on the market offering this much guidance in tying music together with ... full review

The instruction in the Michael Daves vocal school is well thought out with each lesson building on the previous one. Not only is it a vocal school but you get to brush up on guitar skills as well. His lessons, without wasted talk, put the student right to work. The extra videos and interviews with musicians are an appreciated added bonus. Michael clearly has a grasp of what is needed to be an educator.
