Frequently Asked Questions

Did you really quit teaching singing?

Yes and no! I am no longer actively creating new singing-tips videos, online singing courses, or actively seeking new students. However, my YouTube channel and online courses live on! You can still enroll in almost all of them. And my YouTube videos aren't going anywhere.

I am currently working on my own original music and other creative projects, so stay in touch by signing up for my mailing list so we can reconnect once I have stuff to share.

Which of your online courses are free, and which have a tuition? Belting Crash Course and Free Vocal Warmups are completely free, start to finish. My longer courses are more comprehensive and in-depth and provide more materials and resources. They have a one-time tuition fee. These are called The Lazy Singer's Warmups, and Belt Your Face Off.

Did you really close your course Singing Transformation indefinitely?

Yes, 'tis true. This course required lots of active ongoing teaching by me, and once I decided to depart from teaching singing the course become unavailable. 

What’s the difference between Lazy Singer's Warmups and Belt Your Face Off?

Belt Your Face Off is a deep dive into belting, specifically. Lazy Singer's Warmups is all about general warmups that will grow your voice without tension. There is some overlap, but many of the videos and exercises are different, as BYFO breaks down the technique of belting in a much more detailed way. 

Are The Lazy Singer's Warmups different from your other warmups & courses? If so, how?

Heck yes! The Lazy Singer's Warmups are almost all entirely different from my other courses. Their purpose is to help singers of all levels develop a singer ritual that is MANAGEABLE, EFFECTIVE, and FAST -- for those days when you want to do "no-brainer" warmups but still prepare your voice for singing.

Of all my offerings, this warmup set is the most basic but many singers report it is the most effective! This set is all about (1) saving time and (2) doing it in the absolute minimum amount of time necessary.

  • They are designed to do lots of things at once (they're "multifunctional").
  • They allow you to basically be a vocal ninja without much effort -- opening up your voice and getting the kinks out without worrying about complex technique.
  • They remove unnecessary tension -- which blocks singers from being able to sing freely -- and are specifically geared toward relaxation.
  • If you have trouble finding time to do a complete warmup set from my other courses, The Lazy Singer's Warmups perfectly complements those other exercises.
  • Oh, and there's a 14 day refund policy, so if you get them and then find they're not what you need you can get a full refund.

Can I book a one-on-one or Skype lesson with you?

Thank you for your interest! Unfortunately, I am no longer accepting one-on-one students. The best ways to benefit from my teaching is through Belt Your Face Off. Lazy Singer's Warmups, and my archived online tips videos on YouTube and this blog. 

I’m trying to enroll in one of your courses, but am having issues with payment. What can I do?

Glad you’re interested, but sorry you’re having trouble! First, double-check your billing zip code and security code to make sure it's correct. If it's still not working, please send an email to [email protected] describing the glitch and someone on Team Fel will return your email ASAP.

I'm already enrolled in one of your courses and am experiencing technical difficulties with logging in/accessing the course content.

Sorry about that, bud! Simply send an email to [email protected] describing the glitch and someone on Team Fel will return your email ASAP.

Do you offer any scholarships or tuition assistance for the paid singing courses?

I'm always exploring new possibilities for scholarships and tuition assistance, and I have some ideas in the works. At this time, however, I don't have a formal scholarship program, but if you're on my mailing list, you'll be the first to hear about upcoming opportunities. 

I'm a complete beginner! Where should I start?

If you're new to singing and are overwhelmed by the volume of my singing resources, a good place to start is to enroll in my Free Vocal Warmups course, which takes you step by step through the process of practicing. You can sign up at http://www.FreeVocalWarmups.com.

On my YouTube channel, the simplest, most beginner-friendly videos are found under the playlist Singing Should Be Simple. From there, you might try the Vocal Range playlist.  

Can I send you a recording of me singing, and you tell me what I need to work on?

I don't currently offer this service unfortunately!

Can I email you?

Sure! You can reach me at [email protected] FYI I get dozens, sometimes hundreds, of emails per day. While I can’t usually answer you individually, rest assured I or my assistant will do our best to respond! Be sure to also check out my past singing tips videos, as I may have already answered your question! :)

Can I tweet you/Facebook you/Instagram you a question I have about singing?

I will kindly ask that you refrain. There are now so many ways to get in touch on the internet, and my brain stops functioning if I have to tend to every single medium like it's a classroom. It's very hard to answer singing questions in a meaningful way via social media comments, and I like to place loving boundaries on where/when I am "asked for stuff," since it can be pretty exhausting to get these kinds of notifications all the time.

(Plus, it's super hard to keep track of who's asking what, on what platform, so my advice is usually out of context and hard to provide.)

So, in general I don't answer Qs over social media, sorry!

That being said, social media is a great way to say "hey" and spread the love. My job involves lots of people asking for help, or advice, or feedback -- and while I love what I do, it's always a breath of fresh air to receive encouraging feedback, an uplifting bit of info, or a sunny hello! Twitter is my favorite social media platform and I try to read everything you guys tweet at me.

When's your next video / project coming?

As soon as possible, but I never like to rush things! :) The best way to stay in touch and hear about any and all fun things is to subscribe to my mailing list (click "BLOG" up top and then subscribe on that sidebar) or, if you want to be the first to hear my original music, visit me here and sign up for updates.
