The fact is
most people who take voice lessons
don't want lessons.
They want healthy CCM/Pop/Rock technique.
They want to sound authentic.
It's your job to help them.
And to keep their voices healthy.

You might have been taught that pop singing "ruins" the voice, or that "good" technique can be applied to all styles of singing. Maybe you believed it. Or maybe you believed it just enough.
But you know that most of your students want to learn CCM/Popular. They want to sound like the singers they love.
Neuro-Vocal Method will get them what they want.
Maybe you’re concerned that people who sing pop can't have healthy voices.
Or... maybe you're questioning that notion. After all, there are a lot of touring pop and rock singers who still sound good into their 60's and even their 70's!
You take your role seriously. You're serious about keeping voices healthy; serious about helping your students express themselves with accuracy and skill.
You may not feel confident about training others in a type of music that you haven't been trained in.
Neuro-Vocal Method has an answer for that.
Meredith is brilliant. My mix has never felt easier, and my own teaching of contemporary styles has benefitted immensely from the Neuro-Vocal Method. My students are mixing like pros and finding vocal ease where they used to struggle. Meredith is patient and kind while delivering amazing results. If there's any sense in the world, Neuro-Vocal is going to be the next Big Thing in vocal pedagogy.

This course is for you if...
You're a voice teacher or coach who is:
a self-trained pop singer
You have students who want to sing popular styles (contemporary music theater, rock, R&B, hip-hop, indy, etc.)
You love your students
You love learning new stuff, especially science-y stuff
You want professional training that is affordable
You don't want to change everything you do in your teaching, just add to it
You've been less-than-confident about asking for help with this issue
You want to learn from a teacher who really gets both classical and popular
You want a fancy new certificate to hang on the wall of your teaching studio
This is so me!
I found Meredith's course packed full of info in a clear and concise way ,and it was fun!! She takes the time each class to work with you and answer each specific question so you can be sure to understand the concepts. I've started working on some of the exercises with my students and they love them! If you are thinking about taking this course, stop thinking and DO IT! You won't regret it and your students will LOVE you for it!

You should absolutely not sign up for this course if...
You believe there is only one right way to teach singing
You think singing CCM/Popular is hazardous to the voice
You agree that classical technique is appropriate for every kind of singing
You feel you have to compete with other voice teachers
You're a "just tell me what to do...get to the bottom line" person
You cannot attend, live-in-person, at least 6 of the 8 online sessions (that's important!)
Also, do not sign up
if you're grumpy because you can't reach the kitchen counter
You got this!
You know a classical ballet teacher can train to teach modern dance, and stage-trained theater teacher can learn to teach on-camera methods.
Well, good news! A classically trained voice teacher can learn to teach healthy CCM/Popular technique!
You can stop worrying about not knowing how to help your students, whom to ask, or what you think you should know about teaching pop.
Because you're a pro. And pro's like you learn. And get better.
My Bachelors and Masters Degrees are in vocal performance and music education and my vocal training was primarily classical, but over half of my student population was looking for training in contemporary commercial music. Though I could sing it myself, I really felt like I was underserving my students and that I lacked the tools to be able to teach what I was already doing in my own pop and theater singing.
Enter Meredith Colby and the Neuro-Vocal Method! After reading her book "Money Notes" I realized this was the missing piece to my studio puzzle and I enrolled in her certification course.
Each weekly session was the highlight of my week because Meredith made what was for me a very hard to define part of my art very easy and accessible. She made it so easy to understand not only how but why the Neuro Vocal Method just works, and after the second lesson I realized my own singing was improving and I had EASY access to parts of my own high chest mix that were very laborious before. An added bonus were the amazing singers and teachers that were in the course with me. My classmates were some AMAZING people and I learned so much listening to them sing and discuss the concepts as well.
Not every method and every teacher is for every singer or every singing teacher, but the Neuro Vocal Method and Meredith Colby's coaching sure are for ME and MY students! Some of my students have seen immediate improvements after just their first session with me implementing the beginning NVM concepts. When that young tenor who has been struggling with G4 suddenly and without realizing it vocalizes up to a D5 in warmups, you know you've found something special! An added value for me was actually being able to implement some of these concepts into my classical singing as well!

You're gonna love this!
Neuro-Vocal is a method you can confidently use to help your students get the results they want.
Neuro-Vocal Method exploits
the innate tendencies of the brain -
both to steer changes in singing
and to be guided by changes as they occur.
you can actually see how healthy this guy's voice is!
Neuro-Vocal Method encourages vocal health, both keeping students from hurting their voices, and encouraging fast and lasting healing from vocal damage.
Why? Because singers stop thinking about how they're making sound. You will have helped them re-wire their brains in the most healthy and efficient way possible naturally.
Teaching voice based on solid physiological and neurological principles will ensure life-long, healthy singing.
Meredith's class has been a game-changer for my multi-teacher studio. I'm classically trained, as are all my teachers. Learning the Neuro-Vocal techniques, and the principles behind them, has empowered all of us. Overall, our students make faster progress, and get the sounds they want. The class helped us understand pop aesthetics, and has changed our thinking.

You'll change your entire perception of what singing is....and what it isn't. As a vocologist/voice therapist/singing teacher, I've already started using her techniques with my pop and musical theater students, with smashing results. Even this old "Recovering Classical Singer" is finding new power and facility in a completely non-classical singing style...and I'm loving it! I even use these techniques to help teachers and other speaking voice professionals obtain vocal power without strain. I highly recommend this book to any singer or singing teacher who, like me, was trained classically, but wants to sing contemporary and commercial music effectively and effortlessly. Brava, Meredith Colby! -

What are you waiting for?
3 payments over 3 months. Nice!
Getting your certification in Neuro-Vocal Method is an investment you'll never regret.
In fact, you have two years to see the difference your training makes to your teaching studio. Your NVM certification will pay for itself many times over in that time by attracting new students and reducing your student turnover. If you don't feel your training was worth your time, your fees will be cheerfully refunded.
That's nuts! two years?! What are you thinking?

I have been having such a good time working with these tools! Student after student has been making breakthroughs, and fast. And in myself, I am excited and curious to explore the world of freedom offered by microphone singing. I am so impressed at how you created this method. It feels simple, elegant and adaptive.

While maintaining a career as a busy freelance singer, I built a successful Chicago voice studio where I taught CCM/Popular to band singer, music theater singers, and singer/songwriters. I worked consistently for over 20 years as a band singer - rock, jazz, pop - and have more than 30 years teaching experience. To get my B.M. I was trained classically; so I get that. I also did post-grad work in pedagogy at NIU, spent years as Director of the Center for Voice in Chicago, and have been certified by the Neuroscience Academy (Melbourne, AU)
Though I never wanted classical training, I ended up with eight years of it through high school and college. Because that's what there was. Unfortunately, those lessons taught me to sing in a way that was both unhealthy and inappropriate for the work that had been my dream all along, and the work I did after college: fronting a band 5-6 nights a week for 3-4 hours a night. After nine months of that my voice was trashed.
Six months (of vocal recovery) later, I began training with an SLS teacher in Chicago. That experience was transformational. It set me on the path of wanting to train CCM/Pop/Rock people to sing the music they loved . Because I was singing in bands every weekend, I knew that kind of singing was typically performed in an environment where the singer could not hear themselves. As an independent researcher I found a connection to solve that problem; I found that tapping into the nervous system to exploit existing neurological responses could create a short path to healthy CCM/Pop/Rock singing. Twenty-six years later, I wrote my book to share what I had found.
Most of my clients over the years have been professionals; singers, teachers, or both. Experts at what they do. I'm not about being a guru. I'm about working with fellow professionals to solve problems and create new tools. That's my groove. And I love my job.
