What Others Are Saying About Jaime Vendera

"He’s been a huge help in getting my voice back after my vocal surgery"

I started working with Jaime Vendera in December of 2018 after searching for a vocal coach and finding Jaime on YouTube. After watching some of his videos, I felt like his down to earth style would be a good fit, so I hired him for two Skype lessons.

On our very first lesson I could tell he cared about his students and we instantly clicked. So I flew him to Detroit for a few days if intensive lessons as I was in the studio recording vocals for Trauma, to get me back in shape after vocal surgery for recording the record and touring with I Prevail.

To everybody who has been complimenting my vocals on our new release, and saying congrats for recovering from vocal surgery, I have to give a big thank you to Jaime. He’s been a huge help in getting my voice back after my vocal surgery and a massive reason for helping me get my confidence back so I could get back out on the road. Every time we meet, his positive mindset inspires and motivates me to be my best!

If you need a vocal coach or you need anybody to motivate you and give you a kick in the ass, Jaime is the guy! I highly recommend him. He’s been my rock throughout the last year and I believe he can be yours too!

"Applying his approach and techniques resulted in a noticeable improvement"

I've never really identified as a "singer" as much as I have the various other elements that go into crafting, recording, and performing songs. I've always worked hard to create the tone and performance necessary to convey as much emotion and meaning as possible, but I wasn't one to wake up and do vocal exercises, read vocal forums, or geek out over the high notes that people sing. I don't even like the Voice. Or any of those shows. (Holy shit are they boring).

Still, I've always tried to give 100% during live performances. And with the relative growth of STARSET I've been confronted with the challenge of playing longer headline sets, more consecutive performances, and with less rest. Given my obsession with improvement and giving the best performance possible, it became necessary to take the vocal aspect more seriously.

I started to focus on the singing, warming up, and increased rehearsals. But this alone wasn't enough. That is where Jaime Vendera came in. A couple years ago he offered to provide me with guidance/lessons to improve my stamina, power, and range. And he did just that. Applying his approach and techniques resulted in a noticeable improvement--one I believe is noticeable even to the untrained ear.

If you've been to a show recently I think you might agree. 

I can't speak to whether Jaime can take a non-singer and make them great (he probably can, he's awesome), but he can certainly help to make a singer shine.

Thanks Jaime. (Sorry it took me so long to make this well-deserved post. Like I said, I wanted to make it when I felt conviction.)

Oh, plus he's an awesome, incredibly kind, and supportive guy.

"His approach to vocal coaching has helped me improve my voice."

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.

"He really cares about the art of singing."

I have known Jaime Vendera for a few years now. He has become one of the best and most 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!

"My vocal range and stamina greatly improved"

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!
