5 Online Singing Courses That Made My Singing WAY Better!
One of the biggest challenges in learning to sing online today is researching and finding the best singing programs available.
When I first started learning how to sing, I spent a ton of time trying out different singing methods and experimenting with different online singing lessons and courses in order to find the right fit.
In fact, when I first began taking lessons, I thought that I had to buy the most expensive program I could find because that had to be the best one.
But now, all the information that you’ll need about the best singing programs is right here at your fingertips.
The truth is, the internet is packed with tons of false information about the effectiveness of different singing programs.
And sometimes, the most expensive one is not the best.
It can be difficult to separate the fact from the fiction so I wanted to dedicate a little time to highlighting the most popular singing courses out there and a little bit about their approach in their own words.
Finding the Best Singing Program for You
There are lots of different things to consider when you’re looking for the perfect singing course.
You may find that price is the biggest issue.
Or perhaps the presentation of the material is the most important to you.
With online courses, making sure the course is always accessible can also be a factor.
Or maybe you want the biggest bang for your buck and the number of exercises is the biggest issue for you.
But here’s the bottom line:
You want to find the best and most thorough course to teach you how to sing.
That way, you can continue to grow with the course as your voice develops.
Finding a vocal program that can take you step-by-step through the phases of improving your voice is hard, but I wanted to take sometime today to look at each course and some testimonials from students who have taken them.
Here’s what I found.

3. How to Sing Better than Anyone Else
Teacher: Ken Tamplin
Format: DVD Video and USB Thumb Drive
From the website: “Overcome your fear of singing, drastically grow your voice, and become a singer people love listening to.
[Learn] from a world-class vocal coach at a ridiculously low cost.
(1) Very few coaches sing (and even fewer sing well)… and very few courses demonstrate their students singing. KTVA is the opposite. Ken sings really well, and has 100’s of videos proving it. And so can his students– like Anthony Vincent and Gabriela Guncivonka.…the PROOF is in the singing!
(2) Because Ken can sing, it means that in the video course he can demonstrate everything he asks you to do. And explain how everything is supposed to ‘feel’ – making the course very intuitive.
(3) No other singing course has as many raving reviews by people whose voices have actually been transformed by the course – seriously!
(4) Most coaches list 1 or 2 mentors that taught them how to sing. Ken has spent $965,000 on his own voice learning from 30 coaches around the world.
(5) Just ask people. Ask anyone who has taken multiple singing courses in their life and, if they’ve taken through How To Sing Better Than Anyone Else… almost without fail… they’ll say that it beats the other courses by a landslide.”
