I had four Skype lessons  with Jaime Vendera during my Thriving Ivory days, then performed on the Carson Daly show before hitting the road again. 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. I had more lessons while recording for my new band, Midnight Cinema. Now when I sing, I feel like I've been sipping on helium! Thanks to Jaime, I'm able to sing night after night and record my best in the studio! Clayton Stroope-Thriving Ivory/Midnight Cinema

Jaime Vendera has given me a wealth of information and things to work on.  His book has truly been a gift. 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.  After our lessons, 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 Jaime's guidance. Dave Nadolski-Under the Flood

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

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.  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. Tony Harnell

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 used Jaime’s, "Raise Your Voice" system for a year now and can honestly say that the books, combined with Skype sessions with Jaime has transformed the occasional fear of doing the very high-pitch, Cornell-like demanding parts of our music that I do into a boyish and playful joy again. I discovered the system after a tour where my voice broke down. I never wanted that to happen again!! The books instantly opened my eyes to the dimension of nutrition, lifestyle, voice hygiene, hydration, and making room for singing every day, and I have not given an unsatisfying performance or cancelled a show ever since. The voice is a muscle, and using it and exercising it every day shapes and determines your fate as a singer. Considering yourself an athlete as well as an artist and shaping your life accordingly saved my sound and joy of playing, - thanks to Jaime.  Rasmus Revsbech - Franklin Zoo

Over the lifetime of my singing career, (over 25 years now) I've always sang without any worry that I might lose my voice. But one day the inevitable happened. I became voiceless after a very difficult open-air concert in a “frozen” winter evening.  Luckily, I found Jaime Vendera, after looking all over the planet for someone to teach me how to heal and how to protect my voice best from now on. Studying his books and courses (especially "Raise Your Voice"), I discovered a great professional but also a very intuitive and analytical voice technique specialist. I am honored to have him as a friend and adviser. Alin Oprea - TALISMAN

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"  is a wealth of vocal 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

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. Eric Emery-Concordia

I've had a handful of lesson with Jaime starting during the recording of my second record. I remember calling him as i was in the studio finishing the last song on the album. I cannot believe how easy it was to sing. I also used jaime for a vocal tune up before performing my song, "Don't Give Up" at SummerSlam 2012. Needless to say, I felt great during the performance! Kevin Rudolf

I've been to several vocal coaches and most of them don't sing rock. Jaime 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. 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 is the Yoda of vocal technique. He literally knows everything-changed my whole perspective. Plain and simple, Jaime IS the Vox master! Matt Devine-Kill Hannah

I learned about Jaime after I picked up his book, "The Ultimate Breathing Workout" which is a great book. I also use his "Voice RX" warm up before every concert to keep my voice in top shape. I recommend it to all singers. Kevin Martin-Candlebox

Fact- Jamie Vendera is one of the most inspiring human beings I have ever had the pleasure of sharing a vocal connection with. Not only is he a gifted power house vocalist, and master of vocal knowledge , he's also a good soul. His book "Raise Your Voice" should be standard in every singer's library . You won't find a better guide to finding the truth in your voice than Jamie. Ray West - Spread Eagle/Author of Melody to Madness

Jaime is a fan of the art of singing. That says it all ! I have known him for many years and recently started taking classes with him. My schedule on the road can be very demanding and his classes have really help me tremendously. We get together on Skype and he has custom made some classes for me. Having never really studied with anyone before ,I'm interested in warm up exercises and the pharyngeal style of singing and I'm so glad to have Jaime as a teacher.  I highly recommend him.
