Hello everyone,

I was born with what I suppose is a decent voice since I've been singing casually (mostly karaoke) since I was young and most people have been impressed. I have never had any formal training. Recently I decided that I wanted to take a real shot at living my dream and singing in a rock band. I auditioned for a band and it went well - they are interested in me being their front man.

I am now very interested in taking my voice to the next level by learning how to sing properly so that I can enhance my range and endurance. I would like to do whatever I can to make my decent voice "amazing" so that this works out.

Does anyone know of any really good vocal teachers/instructors/coaches in the New York City area who can help me maximize my voice/potential for singing rock music?

Thank you very much for any help or advice you can offer.

Robert Lunte (owner of this forum) has a great program that will certainly help you. Dan Formica is great also. They both use Skype to teach, and Robert has an entire vocal program. If you want in person one on one lessons, their are a metric ton of teachers in the NYC area.

Thanks for the replies. I thought I should start with in person lessons somewhere since I could never quite tell if I was singing from my diaphragm or otherwise doing things properly.

I know there are many teachers in the NYC area, but I want to make sure I go to one that is well regarded so that I maximize my improvement.

I'll look into Kevin Richards, thanks!

Kevin Richards of rockthestageNYC is in New York, also, though you may have to structure your lessons around his touring schedule. His band is playing all the time and baby needs a new pair of Reeboks.

And Adolph's new grandson, Tristen, born May 25 @ 1:15 A.M. needs a mic :cool:

Been singing to him since he was born :D

Oh, and his older brother, Arron need another mic, too :D

What an insanely busy week this is.... Since I live in the middle of nowhere, the hospital is MILES away, and I've been running around like a madman ! :lol:

Somehow I've been keeping up with my duties here, but it isn't easy. BUT, I'm doing the very best I can !!!

Thank you Ron and Bob :cool:

It's getting a bit tiring going to the hospital every day. See, the umbilical cord had a knot in it, which I'm told is quite common and occurs during the first months of pregnancy. As such, they have to keep the baby in the hospital for several days to see if everything is OK ! Been a long week.... In fact, it took me a few minutes to even realize what day it was... :o

As soon as I finish here, it's off to the long ride to the hospital.....

Will be posting a photo of Tristen on my profile page, with a mic of course (:cool:) as soon as he gets home :D

A little strange perhaps, but I can't resist.....:lol:

I truly appreciate everyone's comments, blessings, and congratulations :cool: :D

THANK YOU, THANK YOU, THANK YOU !!!

I took lessons with David Jones and give him my highest recommendation. He's a busy man, but very friendly and careful with voices. He trains people in an operatic sound, but you can email him and he will forward you to someone in his network who applies the basic principles to rock technique.
