Although I coach mainly professional and up-and-coming singers these days in my private practice, I must say I find it just as rewarding when people who have never sung before experience the amazing joy singing can bring (which is one reason why I created the home study program). I encourage you to listen to what Tim shares in this Video.  If you haven't sung much you probably relate to his journey. Learning to sing and enjoying the activity of singing is indeed for everybody – and, frankly, a very important activity for our well-being in my humble opinion.

    Finding this information is so timely for me. I have stopped singing after years of enjoyment. Starting again has been on my mind. Also, a family member just had a stroke and voice recovery, I have heard, can happen more quickly with practicing vocalizing, comparing it to traditional speech therapy. i want to help her regain her normal voice.
    Cannot wait to get started with this technique.

    Hi Per,

    My name is Louis, and I’m 68 years old. I have loved singing all my life. I love to watch American Idol. The problem is that I can’t sing. I have been told by many that I’m unable to carry a tune, that I’m tone deaf, etc.

    I have very little self esteem when it comes to singing; I’m ashamed to even try to sing in public. I could not even get the courage to sing for a professional singing trainer to only tell me to “forget about being able to sing.

    Is there hope?

    Shortly after I retired from the U.S.Navy (age 35) I took a course in voice at a loco college, I was very surprised in how great my voice sounded. But after I left the college Things that were around me at the time seem to work against me in singing at all. and for years afterwards I tried to find a voice teacher to could help bring my voice back again. ( at age 71) do you think that is possible for me….to be able to find that voice again?

    I think everyone,everywhere should sing.I grew up in a family where singing was like breathing.
    Any time any occasion one would tap on a table a door anything available to start the rhythm,and we would follow singing and laughing.Unfortunately one grows,so does fear,and one’s happy life gets more and more limited
    I would like to come back to that feeling of freedom when singing.
    I think your method will help in being aware of what is happening to the body in general while singing and how to slowly but effectively regaining that confidence that has been lost.
    I shall look forward to following your course.

    I’ve had some vocal problems for a while…mornings are difficult for me to sing…even into the day more. by evening I can sing most anything. My voice feels very fatigued in the morning until I pressure through it to get warmed up then I can sing. The problem is it can get that way so quickly any time of the day. Stop singing, it gets cold, for lack of a better word. Also, I’m embarrassed about my vibrato. I am 57 and it seems to be getting wider. Do you think you can help with either of these? I’m willing to get your program but I don’t want to waste my money. I am just a self employed musician and money is tight.

    I just watched the five videos and i’m amazed how this stuff seemed relevant to any style of music, like rock or even heavy metal singing(both of which I find I’m reasonable at and the only sort of music I really enjoy.) So I’ll be sure to practise the freedom of my voice, especially when practising those harsh Metallica or Slayer vocals

    I could sing many years ago, but didn’t go on with it, will like getting it started again. Had a car accident and my voice was disturbed and I could never get it right again. I believe after practising it will come back again. Can you please send me the nessecary info? Pardon my spelling and maybe way of talking, I’m not English.

    Per, I’m so excited to learn of you and your method of teaching how to sing better. I’ve always loved to sing, but didn’t have much volume and was shy, but I did sing in our church choir for many years growing up. My sister was a born singer, a c. soprano naturally and I loved to hear her sing. Now we are in our 80′s and she won’t sing any more because she said she has no breath (heart trouble), so I sent her your e-mails hoping she would be inspired to try, but she won’t, so I told her if you could make me sing better, I would do it for her. I thought I’d have to wait until I got to heaven to be able to sing like that.

    I have always wanted to be a singer since I was little and I think I have a good voice. Not many people have heard me sing so i’m not really sure. I have some problems with trying to hit the high notes and I hope to improve. And mabye gain some confidence.

    I have a passion for singing, can i sing? hum, that’s left to be heard. lol!. I’m already over the hills as the saying goes; but honestly, if i can accomplish singing just one song to the delight of my friends and family i would ask for nothing more, in fact it would be my heart’s desire. I would really like to know all there is about your program, someone must know about my passion and sent me your e-mail.
    I’m looking forward to hearing from you PER.

    In grade school in 1934 we were required to sing scales for the music teacher for voice assignments. However I was assiged, “Listener”. I’ve caried this label for quite a few years. A few months ago I felt it was time to learn how to sing. I went on the internet and reseached the many programs available. Per’s philosphy and approach was very attractive, so I joined “Sing with Freedom”. After starting the program I was wowed to learn and hear I COULD sing and with GREAT JOY. My profound thanks to Per for replaciing the “Listener” label with “Singer” (at long last). After each fun session imrovement is noticeable and with out diffiiculty. Per knew and showed me that I always had a vocal instrument buried inside I’m anxiously waiting for my next lessen.

    Have been a professional singer all my life. When I was 40 something, I developed nodes from a bad sound man I was forced to work with. I was a single mom and I couldn’t quit . I sang with the nodes for 5 years. Shortly after turning fifty I had the surgery and had them removed. My Dr. told me I had a condition called the ceiling affect where the muscles push down when you reach for a high note. Anyway singing has been a struggle. When I came out of the surgery it seemed my a lot of my upper register was just gone. So over thinking everything has caused even more havoc I think. Can you help?

    I am interested in getting the tapes too.  I am a mother of 4 and have always enjoyed singing, however, I realize that there is a knot in my voice and every time I go a little higher than my voice can go there is no sound coming from my mouth because of this I have developed a fear to sing in public. Before I was always singing on chiors, in duets trios and other groups but I can no longer do so. I am really intersted in these lessons.

    I’m in my 80′s. Since I was a tot I always wished that I could sing. Unfortunately, I can’t. I am a monotone, and just can’t signg a note..Is it possible that I could learn, and maybe one day, sing a little with the proper tune?

    I am hoping that the lessons will help me. When I sing especially in church, I feel like I lose my voice sometimes I feel congested. I am hoping that from the lessons that I can sing and my voice is stronger.

    This sounds wonderfully helpful. I have experienced some sinus problems and my voice has suffered. I have been a singer all of my life in choruses and school classes. I have entertained as a member of a trio Now, I am a member of a Church choir and would love to get my voice back. I’ve gone from an alto to a tenor. Thank you for offering the videos.

    Hi Per,

    I used to really sing with long range and i never have to strain my voice it was effortless. I love to sing classical music and my favorite is the think of me from phantom of the opera. I sing more christian music and didnt have any issue with singing until I started working after college and didnt sing much. Recently i have been asked to sing and i tried a piece with a very long range. I cannot sing high notes anymore. So, does your system work for classical music and christian music as well?

    was agood singer .He sang in local clubs and bars around
    the Boston area/ as well as on radio.Henrys mother taught
