What people are saying about the Effortless Singing Vocal Instruction Course 2 CD Set:

It's an excellent set of CDs. You put everything out there intelligently and clearly so the ideas and concepts are easy to comprehend.  
- Flash, Musician, Recording Engineer

Your Effortless Singing CDs have opened up a whole new area of my creative self. Without your Effortless Singing CDs I would not have considered trying out for the Hill Country Singers.  We have completed our first concert and I cannot tell you how much I enjoyed it. Thank you. I am absolutely in love with this new avenue in my life.   -
- Katheran Acmorsoni, Beginning Singer

I really like your approach and your teaching style. This would be of use for the beginner to the pro. It's really good.  Good sound and everything. You nailed it.

Terri Hendrix, Professional Singer/Songwriter, Musician

I have been using "Effortless Singing" for almost a year now.  While I was pregnant I heard a lot about how important it was for me to sing to my baby and I am still hearing it.  Sadly, I had never felt good about my singing and I did not feel comfortable doing it.  When my son was born, I began to sing to him anyway.  When I started using "Effortless Singing" my experience of singing changed dramatically!  Brenda's instructions made singing physically feel better and I started to enjoy the way I sounded.  I have used singing in so many ways with my baby - from soothing him to sleep to teaching him to use his potty and say words.  I sing with him all the time!  He can ask for 'more' now and he often asks for more when I finish a song.  He also initiates the singing games we play.  Singing has become a reward that I can give him any time, effortlessly!
- Olathe MacIntyre, Mother, Scientist

I originally took vocal lessons from Brenda to clear out blockages from my throat chakra.  It was a fabulous experience and the CD makes it possible for me to practice almost anywhere.  Whether you want to sing for yourself or thousands of people, Brenda's method is safe, fun, professional and successful. 
- Tambra Nelson, Voice Student

My son, Dylan, and I love the Effortless Singing CDs.  He sings constantly these days, making up his own tunes and words.  It's very cool.

Betsy Vogt, Voice Student, Mother

I think your Effortless Singing program is great.

What people are saying about the Effortless Singing Vocal Instruction Course 2 CD Set:

Wow! Your Effortless Harmony Singing CD’s sound great. I love the use of song samples to help people find different harmonies. Also, I’m lucky to have an ear but I have no real theory training so it’s very nice to learn more about what I’m doing! Very clear teaching on the different arpeggios. Really helpful. I also like how you gave a lesson on finding harmonies from any given note in the chord. Altogether, really, really nice work.
- Kristin DeWitt, Professional Singer/Harmony Vocalist

I am very impressed, it is a great harmony teacher and you learn theory at the same time. This is a LOT of information presented in a very logical manner.
-Thomas Chapmond, performing musician

What people are saying about the Effortless Music Reading Measure Cards Set 1:

I love how your piano method learning is Quintuply-Enforced – saying the note as you see and play it; 1) eyes, 2) ears and 3) finger muscles all at once, 4) learning the note values from the start by saying the "ands", and 5) if the child sings the note on pitch as she plays it. How could anyone teach any other way?!!
- Jannie Ernst, Mother of Young Piano Student

The repetition of the notes along with the timing for the notes is perfect.  I like it.  I found it clear, easy to follow, and I understood the instructions very clearly. 
- Thomas Chapmond, Adult Music Student

I am impressed with the simplicity and straight forwardness of your presentation of the fundamentals of music.

What people are saying about the Effortless Music Reading Measure Cards:

I am impressed with the simplicity and straight forwardness of your presentation of the fundamentals of music. - Mary Carol Warwick, Professor, Houston Community College

An indispensable aid for anyone wanting to learn to read music. It is an easily comprehensible method that will take the beginner to the next level in no time.
- Rustem Huyroudinoff, Professor at the Royal Academy of Music, London, England, Concert Pianist

This is really great because it reinforces all of the elements together; note names, reading rhythm, and challenges the student by putting cards in random order. I find when a student plays a song familiar to their ear...that's just what they do....they play it by ear rather than reading the notes.  You've got a good thing goin' here!
- Shawn Buller, Music Therapist
