In the video below you'll see how my student Spenser was able to dramatically transform his singing voice in about a year studying with me.
"Since training with Phil Moufarrege, I can easily access my mixed voice. My vocal range, strength and stamina have increased a ton. I feel much more in control of my voice and can confidently sing notes I would have been nervous to even attempt when I first started. I can sing seamlessly past my break and well into the next octave with more strength, compression and accuracy."
Before we started working together Spenser felt his voice was a big barrier blocking him from singing his original music the way he wanted. He had a limited range and felt like he didn't have the vocal freedom, consistency or stability to sing the way he wanted.
Now he can finally get his songs completed without his voice being a barrier and now he has the freedom to sing his songs the way he wants and he has been pursuing a professional career with his...
In just a few weeks I helped Greg Giraudo increase his vocal range up to D5 in a useable way and gain more freedom and dynamic control in his existing range. Here is a cover he did of QUEEN's Show Must Go On after working with me for just a few weeks.
It takes a lot of vocal range to sing in the range of Freddie Mercury. You don't just need to sing high either, you need to be able to sing high with POWER as well.
A thin, shaky "mixed voice" won't cut it either. You need to be able to sing in a very chesty, solid full voice.
The way I teach this is by STAYING IN chest voice, not "smoothing the vocal break" or "hiding the transition".
Is it really possible to do that without getting stuck, losing your voice or straining or sound like you're shouting?
When you have a voice with this kind of power, control, range and stamina it gives you a TON of options and versatility as a singer. It opens up the doors for you to sing so many more songs with confidence.
Today I'm going to show you how a student of mine, Yago, increased his full voice vocal range by 4 notes, from F4 to A4 in just 3 weeks using my singing course.
When Yago first joined my program, he sent me an email saying:
"I've been singing for years and I've tried so many different teachers and techniques and I always end up straining on F4 and losing my voice every time.
Whenever I reach F or F#4 I start to strain or immediately go to falsetto. My goal is to develop a solid mixed voice, but no matter what I do it always seems impossible."
He started working with the program for a few weeks then asked for my feedback on some of the exercises. I gave him a few adjustments and then told him to come to one of the group coaching calls I offer in the program.
He came in and told me that just off that single tip I gave him in the email, it made a huge difference in his voice. I took him through one of the exercises to see how he's going with them and he zipped right...
Before training with Phil, I was convinced that I was anatomically incapable of singing above a G#4 in my chest voice without strain! And although it’s an ongoing journey, I am now getting up to B4 and high tenor C5 with increasing consistency and relative ease!
I’ve always felt that my voice was rigid and inflexible, and that the only way for me to sing well was to belt out those notes. Phil is showing me that this needn’t be the case, and I’m now starting to discover a flexibility and freedom in my voice that I’ve never felt before.
I have tried lessons with several singing teachers over the years, and have been extremely frustrated at my lack of progress. When I saw and heard Phil explain his background and the vocal struggles that he had overcome, it resonated with my own experiences, and I felt that he could help me where no one else has been able to...and he has!
Before working with Phil, I really felt that I had plateaued in my vocal...
Since training with Phil Moufarrege, my range, vocal strength and stamina have increased a ton. I feel much more in control of my voice and can confidently sing notes I would have been nervous to even attempt when I first started. I also learned a lot about how my own voice works; I know how to easily access my mixed voice and understand the muscle coordination required as I sing in different ranges.
Before I started training with Phil, I couldn’t sing above an A4 and had a very harsh singing tone. Now I can sing seamlessly past my break and well into the next octave with more strength, compression and accuracy.
I used to have a very unbalanced voice, muffled in one part of my range and too much of a choked nasal sound in another. My voice is now much more consistent and smooth through all ranges. These were problems I couldn’t even hear in my own singing when I started, and never would have fixed had Phil not picked up on them.
I chose Phil as my teacher because I was...
If you're a singer who has been stuck with a limited vocal range, or suffers from going hoarse after every practice session then I think you'll enjoy this singing transformation.
Brian Zhu is a singer who started Skype lessons with me about 9 months ago. He creates cover songs and originals on YouTube and always felt like the main thing holding him back was his voice. Since studying with me, he's increased his vocal range, clarity and vocal stamina greatly within a short period of time. I'm looking forward to seeing his channel evolve over the coming years.
I started singing a year ago, and I've been extremely fortunate to have Phil as my first real vocal coach. I'd been looking on YouTube for singing tips for quite some time and ran across one of Phil's videos. The way he broke down how the voice functioned in a clear, systematic, and easy to understand way instantly drew me in. His no B.S, logical, and straightforward teaching style is something that seems...
For about a year or so, I’ve been studying singing regularly with Phil Moufarrege. I can now sing with far more ease than ever before. He's taught me how to sing without strain through my vocal bridges in full voice, how to avoid the anxiety and negative thoughts that I have always battled, and how to love my voice so that I can keep improving.
Before meeting Phil, I had been training singing for nearly 1 year with other teachers face-to-face. Although the lessons helped me get started, they could never diagnose the issues in my voice or tell me how to avoid cracking and flipping into falsetto. They'd just tell me “sing LOUD!” and I would end up just yelling and my throat was in pain all the time. I was always just pushing...never singing.
I knew that there must be a way to fix this so I searched online and saw Phil on Youtube and contacted him immediately. I saw immediate results from only taking 1-2 lessons with him.
He can hear every little...
In this singing transformation you're going to see how Quentin dramatically improved his voice, through Skype lessons with me.
Before studying with Phil, I felt like just a typical average singer stuck with my vocal range and tone. My voice sounded OK but nothing special.
I was in a rock band at the time and always wanted to sing like Ronnie James Dio or Chris Cornell, but I couldn't sing any of their songs and had to sing all the high parts in falsetto. Singing Dio in falsetto doesn't sound cool.
I took singing lessons with other teachers first, and while they helped me to an extent, my vocal range was still limited. I felt like I had two different voices and was unable to connect them. I lacked confidence with my singing because all my energy was focused on my singing technique - so I'd do weird things live because my technique didn't match my ambitions.
The most frustrating was recieving feedback like "Your...
In this singing transformation before and after you're going to see how Dane Maxwell went from:
When Dane first contacted me for Skype lessons, I asked him about his biggest frustration he had with singing. He said:
"Dude I just feel super insecure about my voice."
He told me he struggled to sing around his bridge area (E4-F#4 area) so we worked a lot on it. You'll see how we did all that in the above singing transformation video.
The main thing I stress with my training is that things need to feel EASY. If your voice does not feel comfortable and easy then you're going to really struggle...
If you ever feel confused about all the singing terminologies, techniques and methods out there and don’t know what and how you should be training, then I think you’ll find Jaffer’s singing transformation here very inspiring – after struggling with his voice for years trying to find the right teacher and method for him, he now has insane range, control, and tone and can now tackle difficult stuff like Bruno Mars and Journey.
"I started singing like 3 years back and had previously never studied voice or anything ...Hell I didn’t even know that the voice was something you could actually train - I always thought that you were either born with it or not.
So when I started singing training, I discovered that there’s a lot of fancy words and terminologies (at least fancy for me!) that vocal coaches threw in my face during lessons. And sometimes I was a bit too embarrassed to keep saying "I...
