Glass-shattering, voice-strengthening specialist, Jaime Vendera, has a unique way of helping singers rediscover the voice they were born with- that uninhibited, playful voice that every child naturally possesses through breathing, supporting, and placing the voice instinctively. Jaime's method is a combination of re-discovering our natural voice by teaching tried and true vocal technique, building internal vocal muscle through a series of unique vocal exercises designed to improve vocal resonance, range & stamina, while altering the singer's mindset to master one's voice.
Jaime's Isolation exercises develop vocal muscle, much like bodybuilders develop muscle by lifting weights. Isolation exercises allow a singer to build the voice note by note, in minimal time. When combined with the Vocal Stress Release program, Jaime's program for releasing vocal and physical stress, you'll build an amazing voice, but stronger than you ever imagined.
When singers want more vocal range and power, and need to maintain vocal stamina to perform night after night, they call Jaime. Ben Thomas of Zappa Plays Zappa says that Jaime is the ‘Mr. Miyagi’ of vocal coaches, while Mat Devine of Kill Hannah considers him more of a ‘Yoda.’ James LaBrie of Dream Theater said, “Because of my lessons with Jaime, my voice is feeling and sounding better than it has in twenty years. I am spot-on every night. He is the Vocal Guru.” Myles Kennedy of Alter Bridge said, “One time during a tour, I was so sick I could barely make 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. By the next night, I was able to perform the show. He is fantastic! "Raise Your Voice" is THE book for singers. I recommend his book and his private instruction to ALL singers.”
Jaime's vocal training books,videos, and audio programs have been used by countless singers worldwide, including by singers of bands such as, TNT, Nitro, Dream Theater, Journey, Kill Hannah, RA, Future Leaders of the World, Great White, and Alter Bridge. He has worked with professional artists from Atlantic, Epic, Roadrunner, Cash Money, and Universal records.
Combining his vocal training methods with his Mindset program (the secret to his success drive) Jaime turns singers into vocal monsters. Not only does he teach his unique methods through private & online lessons, he also conducts vocal seminars and workshops worldwide. These methods are explained through his product line and his program, "The Ultimate Vocal Workout."
Jaime has used his simple principles to set a world record by shattering a glass by the power of his voice, without amplification of any sort. He has also proven this accomplishment on several television shows, including Discovery Channel’s MythBusters, The Dr. Oz Show and National Geographic’s Humanly Impossible. Jaime has broken glasses on television shows all over the world. Besides the United States, he has also appeared on television in France, Germany, Australia, China, and Japan. Each show requires him to sing and/or scream for hours on end.
Jaime started playing professionally at the age of sixteen. At nineteen, he moved to Hollywood, California to study Voice at the Musician’s Institute. He studied under the guidance of teachers Jim Gillette, Elizabeth Sabine, and Thomas Appell. On his own, Jaime has studied voice, yoga, massage therapy, reflexology, hypnosis, anatomy, and holistic healing. Jaime is endorsed by TC Helicon, Blue Microphones, Superior Vocal Health, Qlink, Xooma, Alesis, IK Multimedia, and VAM acoustics. He is the official Spokesman for VAM Acoustics and is featured on the packaging for the Vocal Acoustic Monitor.
