Hello Fellow Singers,

Online products can be a hit or miss experience! That is why I love reading and writing reviews myself, and I hope that you find this Superior Singing Method Review helpful.
Please note, this is a review site that I have written about my personal experience with the Superior Singing Method program. Click here to visit the Superior Singing Method’s Official Website
What Is the Superior Singing Method program?
Well, its an online vocal training program which will teach you how to become a better singer. Through a series of 50 lessons divided into weekly modules like: Warm Ups, Breath Management, Vocal Tone, Pitch, Power and Resonance, Higher Notes, Vocal Agility, and Advanced Strengthening Techniques, you will improve your singing no matter what level or background of singing you have.
There is nothing more awful than a singer who sings off tune and/or looks like he is constipated or being crucified! Yes, we’ve all seen and heard them! One of my favorite tips that Aaron gives around staying on pitch is as easy as just having a pleasant look on your face.
In his Superior Singing Method program Aaron explains that this simple change in your expression raises your zygomatic muscles in your face which opens up your throat. He goes on to explain that beyond changing your vocal tone, as a performer your first “look” is what can either connect you with your audience or immediately turn them off.
Try singing a song with a scowl on your face and then with a light smile. What do you notice about your pitch and about your overall energy? Feels a lot different, right? That is the great thing about Aaron’s singing program, it’s loaded with tons of quick, easy, useful, and effective singing tips!
Ok now that you know the basics, I will give you my top reasons for picking Superior Singing Method as my online voice training program as well as things to beware of.
First, the “Bad and Ugly” parts of the Superior Singing Method Review:
Nothing is perfect, right?! And thats fine, because we all have different expectations and perspectives on things. That said, after spending a few months with the voice training lessons in the Superior Singing Method:
1) I wish that Aaron would sometimes use some other props or media in his explanations:
Nothing high tech, but since I am a visual learner, having a visual about the vocal chords and how they vibrate, open and close would be helpful. The studio and videography are all pretty ‘basic’ !
2) You have to be self motivated and diligent with your daily vocal exercises:
As Aaron says, your voice is like a muscle that has to be worked out daily. You actually have to practice your singing! That sounds simple, but after week 2, you really have to commit about 20 minutes daily to improve your voice.
3) Aside from the vocal exercises, Aaron doesn’t provide any “songs” to sing along, for improving your technique that are custom catered to you:
Although he probably would give you some pointers via email if you join the Vocal Coaching Club, you have to know how you are going to apply these voice training lessons to the type of music that you sing. The cool thing is that it’s a great foundation that you can apply to classical, jazz, pop or whatever else you want to sing.
4) It’s not the same as having an in-person teacher hover over your every breath and word:
If you are the type that needs lots of hovering, and hand-holding, this is probably not the program for you.
Yup, that was the “bad and ugly” parts of the Superior Singing Method exposed.
Now, onto My top 5 Favorite Things about Aaron Anastasi’s Superior Singing Method:
They are rooted in classical singing techniques, and enhanced by Aaron’s personal experience and insight as a singer & vocal coach. They are useful for improving any style – pop, classical, R&B, country, or church choir.
2) There is a good balance between explanation and actual practice:
Some online voice lessons go on and on about the singing technique and don’t really focus on getting you singing as soon as possible. Aaron’s vocal technique gets you started on day #1 after short 2-5 minute explanations.
3) The Superior Singing Method program is 100% “virtual” and online:
I love that all I need are my MP3 files. No paper, DVDs, CDs… I can practice my singing from anywhere. My garden, the beach, a park bench at lunch, or the bathroom! The strangest place I’ve done my exercises was when I walked into a community center between lunch meetings, and asked to use one of their open rooms for 20 minutes.
4) This program allowed me to improve my singing quickly:
Already after a few days of daily practice my tone, range and dynamic shifted, this was really exciting and encouraging to me. Results may vary depending on your current level of singing, but after the gentle ease in during week 1, the vocal exercises get more and more challenging.
5) Aaron was really prompt and had great feedback about how I can improve my singing:
I selected the option to join Aaron’s Vocal Coaching Club. I submitted a YouTube video to him for personal review. He kindly and honestly pinpointed some ways how my posture and breathing could really improve my singing and allow me to get the most out of his voice training program.
So, overall what do I think?
Alrighty, you are welcome to scroll and read on in my earlier posts about this program, but if you are looking for my opinion in a nutshell, I feel that you can significantly improve your voice with the Superior Singing Method program.
Its not going to just happen magically, but with a little bit of concentrated effort, you will enjoy your vocal training. Don’t multitask, like check your email or FB while doing these singing exercises. Really give your voice your undivided attention for 10-15 minutes everyday!
I hope you enjoyed my candid Superior Singing Method review!
