In today’s world of American Idol and The Voice, it's easy to think that all you need to succeed is a little bit of natural talent and charisma. The truth is, many of these amazing singers have been studying and practicing for most of their lives. Pursuing a career in music requires more than waiting for your "big break": it takes dedication, focus, intense practice, and a strong education.

There are a few main reasons you may be interested in teaching yourself how to sing. Maybe lessons are too expensive, or you’re not entirely sure yet if singing is your passion.

Artist works provides an amazing format. A student can spend hours going through the curriculum and practising in a systematic way. The curriculum makes sense; it builds progressively from foundational lessons to lessons that are more elaborate. There are guests and additional material from festivals added regularly. The opportunity to converse and demonstrate one's skill level with the Musicians / teachers is invaluable. In my experience both Michael Dave's and Bryan Sutton are incredibly engaging, attentive to detail, supportive, and just generally awesome people to exchange videos with and to learn from.
