If You Have Questions, We Have Answers
Q: Is this course appropriate for complete beginners?
A: Yes! There is no experience necessary to get the most out of these course materials and sessions. We have laid out a comprehensive curriculum that delivers all that you need to start with the very basics and experience tremendous success in short periods of time! Elizabeth had never attempted any sort of harsh vocal engagement before the making of this course and she's making all sorts of amazing sounds!
Q: What if I already have lots of experience with harsh vocals? Is this course still worth it?
A: YES! Will is one of the most advanced extreme vocalists on the planet and we don't shy away from pulling back the entire curtain, giving you 'all the good stuff' (as Will puts it). If you've spent the last couple decades screaming, growling and working with harsh vocal techniques, you'll have vast new territories to explore with your own voice as you work through this material!
Q: Who is actually teaching this course?
A: Will, Elizabeth and Chris all take the roles of both instructors and students throughout this course. Elizabeth helps us understand vocal anatomy and "The Source Filter Theory" in a way that helps us engage our bodies safely. Chris prepares our minds to engage freely by exercising non-judgement and trying all sorts of crazy exercises to put us in the correct posture to receive the gold from Will. Will takes us through all of his methods, practices and techniques using simple exercises and phrases that let you unlock sounds and sensations you never dreamed you'd be able to use!
Q: Is this a singing course too?
A: We do not cover any singing whatsoever in this course :) We wanted to provide the ultimate resource for harsh vocals and to include singing would have meant stretching ourselves and our audience too thin! This is the best, most comprehensive resource on extreme vocal development and execution you'll find anywhere! If you want to learn how to sing, both Elizabeth and Chris have a variety of courses and programs that you should definitely explore!
Q: Does this course include lifetime access?
A: YES! Once you join, you will have lifetime access to all video and downloadable supplemental content forever. You'll also be able to continually interact with the community as long as you're enrolled in the course (which is forever) The Zoom calls will also be archived and available with lifetime access for those who have chosen that option.
Q: What if I start the course and then realize it isn't for me?
A: If you don't feel at home with us in this course for any reason, simply send an email to [email protected] and we will issue you a full refund as long as you contact us within 30 days of your purchase.
Q: Does this course include practical exercises to help me develop as an extreme vocalist?
A: YES! This course has SIX total sections each containing actionable assignments, specific exercises and there are also a number of interactive self assessment quizzes. Downloadable practice tracks and other supplemental content is also available.
Q: How can I be sure I won't hurt myself?
A: If you follow the meticulously prepared instruction in this course and fully adhere to our practice guidelines, you will not hurt yourself. If you get impatient or start judging yourself or are skipping parts of the course so you can rush into what you believe are the 'good parts', you are not following directions and we as instructors can no longer help you. Don't skip around. Proceed patiently and mindfully. Don't compare yourself to others or judge yourself while you're practicing. DO take the lessons in order. DO move slowly and listen to your body during every exercise and assignment. DO keep a journal of your experiences.
