Jaime Vendera helped me not only to strengthen my voice's range and power, but he also really helped me gain the confidence in my singing that I was lacking and he helped me to actually start being comfortable with my own voice. Before working with Jaime I hated my voice and didn't have enough confidence in my vocals to sing lead. Jaime helped me to take the step from background singer to front man. Thanks Jaime.

Jaime Vendera is an aural wünderkind! Apart from teaching me how to be an F'in man, he helped me turn my vocal rawness into golden stage pipes, and my busy tour schedule ( of 6-7 night sin a row of three hour shows) doesn't seem quite as daunting anymore. So, reader I say to you, if you want to increase range, power, stamina, virility and girth, then contact Mr. Vendera for a wild ride, cause he don't smack it around lightly! Also, he was on MythBusters, which is pretty awesome!  Ben Thomas-Zappa Plays Zappa

 

The saying goes, "does a bird fly because it has wings or does it have wings because it flies?" Jamie is the latter. Because his sincerity of purpose is so strong, the most powerful and effective vocal techniques available are drawn to him like iron filings to a magnet. He's a great singer, master teacher -- looks way better than Yoda, and his passion is more contagious than the flu. When you plug into Jamie and his method you're getting way more than just surface vocal training --it ain't just about hittin' the notes -- it's about what you do with them. Jamie, you've helped me more than I can say as a singer, and because of the beauty, strength and sincerity of your purpose in life, I'd love ya' if you couldn't even sing a note.  Bob Harris-Frank Zappa, Warren Zevon, Steve Vai, AXE, Edge of Forever, Jock Bartley

 

 I had heard of Jaime through my vocal coach, Tony Harnell.  I found some of his videos on YouTube (the ones where he breaks the glasses are amazing!) but one stood out to me - the Vocal Stress Release video.  I watched this video and did the exercises along with it.  I felt a difference physically right away, and felt more relaxed in my neck and shoulder area.  After doing the exercises religiously every day for about a month, I started to be much more relaxed, able to breath better and able to hit higher notes easier.  All coming from removing excess tension before I sing, which is the basis of the VSR.  They are really great exercises, and I highly recommend them to any singers out there who have excess tension.  Thanks Jaime, you rock!!!!

Being a new band on the road can be tough on a singer, especially the way that I sing. I had four Skype lessons with Jaime Vendera, then performed on the Carson Daly show before hitting the road again, and during the show, I could not believe how easy it was for me to sing. It was like the songs floated out of me. My vocal range and stamina greatly improved once I mastered Jaime's techniques. Thanks to Jaime, I was able to sing night after night on the road!

Jaime Vendera understands and explains the voice in such a manner that I can relate to what was causing my own vocal problems. Most importantly though, he has shown me how to replace the bad habits with good ones! I’ve always believed that all bad vocal habits can be overcome, so long as there is someone to guide you in the right direction. Jaime is that guide. Out of the 50+ vocal instruction books I’ve purchased, “Raise Your Voice 2nd Edition” replaces them all!  Dallan Beck- Recording Engineer

Jaime, I have been singing Opera Internationally for more than 20 years. My training has been very extensive as well as top notch. I studied with Placido Domingo's teacher for many years and benefited greatly from that study.
As the years went on, I got more busy with family and day to day living. Although I never had any vocal issues or lost my ability to sing, I did find my technique became somewhat lazy and not as focused.
 I have never been a big fan or believer in vocal or singing books simply because my training has been so thorough and complete. However, I recently picked up your books Raise Your Voice and The Ultimate Breathing Workout after finding out you have broken glass with your voice and was curious to see what you were doing and how you were doing it.
I must say, the information , exercises and instruction reminded me of being in a voice lesson with my old teacher. You rekindled my interest, commitment and discipline to deep supported breathing while singing. And the result has been fantastic. Your "Power Push"  and other technique exercises, have gotten me back into complete support from the bottom and my voice has once again grown and become more even from top to bottom due to my more diligent focus on deeper support. I would highly suggest your books to anyone seeking to further develop and strengthen their voice and connect with their support. Thank you for your work.

Thanks for the lesson today.  I've been continuing the exercises. You've given me a wealth of information and things to work on, and now I just need to work my butt off at them.  Your book has truly been a gift as well, I'm going to order a physical copy to carry around with me on the road, because it's like the Bible for singers!  It's really making me re-evaluate my view on singing not only from a technique standpoint, but from a lifestyle one as well.  It's true that if you really want to be successful at something, you have to live it, day in and day out. You can't have one foot in and one foot out; you just have to go for it.  I haven't been doing that to the extent that I should, but In the past week I've really felt an excitement about my voice that I haven't had in a long time.  I'm going to continue doing everything I can to grow as a singer and I've really appreciated your guidance. Thanks so much for everything!

At first, I was a little leery about taking voice lessons via “Skype.”  But after my first lesson with Jaime, I was amazed at not only my progress, but Jaime’s ability to conduct “world-class” vocal lessons on-line.  After just three, hour-long sessions, my singing ability increased ten-fold, and that’s no exaggeration.

Raise Your Voice in combination with The Ultimate Breathing Workout not only raised my voice, it saved my voice. If you are into aggresive techniques, high pitch screams, and all the good stuff, this is a must. I figured that I needed to understand what's going on inside my body to prevent any damge from the abuse in demanding performaces that this style of singing requires and Jaime's methods helped! f you want to rock hard, you must be consistent night after night. This book is a source of priceless knowledge that I'm sure will help you as it helps me to acomplish this hard gig!....thnx Jaime! Fede Delfino-BlackMagic Revolution


I’ve been studying with Jaime Vendera for some time now and I can honestly say that he's shown me things vocally that I never really thought about. His book Raise Your Voice Second Edition is a wealth of knowledge and his approach to vocal coaching has helped me to improve my voice. This tour has been amazing; my voice is better than ever. I value Jaime's wisdom and friendship.  James Labrie-Dream Theater


 

 

 

Jaime is the man! He is the ONLY one I would trust with carrying on my glass shattering legacy. He is THE #1 vocal coach in the world! No-one even comes close, which is why I also handed over the keys to my "Vocal Power" voice coaching legacy to him! If you want vocal strength, power, range, stamina and all around quality, Jaime is the answer!

Jaime's way of teaching is both fun and motivational. I've gone from a street fighting vocal approach to actually having control over what I do. Everyday there's results, some small some huge. If Elvis was the King of Rock N Roll then Jaime's the king of vocal power! Lizzy DeVine-Former Vains of Jenna singer

 

 

 

 Jaime is the Yoda of vocal technique. He literally knows everything-changed my whole persepctive. Plain and simple, Jaime IS the Vox master!

I have known Jamie Vendera for a few years now. He has become one of the best and well respected Vocal Instructors in the business. What sets him apart from many is the fact that he really cares about the art of singing. He is extremely passionate about what he does. While on tour, he came out to see me perform with Alter Bridge. Unfortunately, I was so sick it was rough making it through the set. It looked as if we were going to have to cancel the next show. Jaime spent some time giving me some tips that helped me regain my voice and by the next night, I was able to perform the show. He is fantastic! Myles Kennedy-Alter Bridge

I've been to several vocal coaches and most of them don't sing rock, never did, and don't really respect it as a vocal style or valid art form, seeing as it is seemingly harmful to the natural state of the human voice. Anyways he actually hits the notes the same way I do, but also with the same grit and way higher, so immediately I had respect for what he would teach me and knew he could help. I was really excited to see that I could hit the same notes with the same grit without straining my voice or hurting afterward. He has really opened my eyes to a new approach to my music that is more healthy and higher quality vocally as well cuz I'm in more control of my voice. So thanx alot for helping me out Jaime! Jaime's the real deal and he can seriously help you be a rock singer if you’re dedicated so check him out. Phil Taylor-Future Leaders of the World, Machina

Jaime's book "Raise Your Voice" has changed my entire outlook of being a singer. The exercises, tips and techniques contained are amazing and I am having great success already by doing what he says every day. When I met Jaime for my first lesson I was so nervous because he is the best at what he does. Within minutes the nerves disappeared because Jaime was such a down to earth, kind person with an honest passion for passing on his knowledge. Now I am on the road to discovering the potential of my voice and I have Jaime Vendera to thank for that. There is no doubt, he is the best! Sean Mcbay-Sandstone

I've been using Jaime's techniques for years now. They totally improved and shaped the way I sing today. Doing his vocal exercises and following his techniques will NO DOUBT make you an amazing singer. He teaches you power, confidence, and the proper way to use the most beautiful instrument-your voice!

What I love about Jaime’s book is that it is user friendly. You could carry it around on the road or take it in the studio and refer to it when needed. It’s easy to read and comprehensive. If you can’t fix whatever physical issue you have with your voice using Raise Your Voice, you probably need professional help, meaning a good ear, nose and throat doctor OR perhaps rest and a good thorough cleanse. Jaime has done the research and he knows his stuff. Having gotten to know the man I can say without hesitation that I have never met anyone with as much passion for singing and for helping singers. This will take him very far and give you, the singer, a mentor to follow as you develop your talent. This is not to say that Jaime’s books are for beginners, quite the contrary, they are for every singer! I found things in his book I didn’t know about and found they worked, so anyone of any level will benefit from these discoveries. World Renowned vocalist Tony Harnell
