This “reviews and products” page is for anyone who struggles to secure regular singing lessons with a private teacher or vocal coach for whatever reason. And there may be many reasons:
Are you saying that you don’t have time to take private singing lessons? (Who has time? Life has other priorities, right? Family, job, health …)
What about not having money to pay for private sessions? (Who has money? Private lessons can be pretty costly …)
And for some people, access can be an issue too.
I know all about these reasons.
But, do not worriy, you can still improve your singing.
Fortunately, the internet offers a huge number of singing products, both free and paid.
Books, CDs, DVDs, online courses … and the list goes on.
The trick is to know which ones are worthwile and which ones are not as good.
(Note: For the record, I want to say that having a private teacher or vocal coach is the best option. The individual attention and approach geared towards one’s voice is by far the most ideal choice. But I do not agree with some opinions that declare all other options dangerous. I, personally, could not take voice lessons in the past and nothing bad happened to me. However, I did my due dilligence. This is a page where I offer my insights from this “exploratory” period. And I hope it will help those who just cannot fit private vocal lessons in their lives right now.)
This page offers a list of my favourite products, ones that I use or used in the past.
My reviews reveal all the pros and cons.

Check out this page and find out how to learn to sing with the help of some of these resources.
I spend a lot of time on the internet (yes, I am guilty of this crime!).
But I (mostly) have one goal in mind – I look for valuable resources for singers.
I am a curious person and I like to try things.
I have purchased, signed up for and tried every single “product” on this page.
I have tried them, I have used them, I have read them.
Then, I wrote reviews, in which I offer my honest opinions and recommendations. I am not afraid to point out both advantages and disadvantages of the reviewed products.
(Please, keep coming back as I will be adding more reviews and products to this list.)
On this page, you will find my reviews of these products. But before you purchase anything …

IMPORTANT: Always, always, ALWAYS do your OWN due-diligence before making any purchases, whether I recommend them or not. Never, EVER purchase anything that you cannot afford. And by the way, most people don’t do anything with the products they buy, and therefore their results are zero.

I have had this book for some time. Theodore Dimon, the author, explains how the voice works as a part of a total system of our body. Throughout the book, he frequently reminds us that focusing on only one or a few parts of the vocal mechanism in vocal training is unproductive. I completely agree with this opinion.
