Singing Program Overview
Anastasi teaches his students through audible and video lessons. Each of the daily lessons consists of several vocal audio exercises and one video to perform that will help you to build a daily vocal warm up routine.
The videos are very professional, as the coach visually performs and explains the exercises in great length for each of the lessons. With the audio files, Anastasi will walk you through each portion, discussing the reason behind each of the exercises and what they can do for your vocals. Each of the audio exercise files is crystal clear and very easy to understand. During the first part of each exercise you’ll perform with Anastasi, so you can be sure that you’re beginning the lesson using the right scale. Having him lead you into the vocal exercise can provide you with more confidence that you’re performing each exercise correctly.
The coach does a great job of teaching listeners how to perfectly execute the exercises, with an emphasis on the importance of warming up the vocals.

Bonus module ten is all about music marketing. With this bonus, Anastasi offers some advice on how to promote music and make money. While it does feature some helpful advice, it isn’t very long.
Another bonus is about singing in harmony. Nathan Chapman, who is a two-time Grammy award winner, discusses the basics of how singing in harmony works. With this video, both Anastasi and Chapman sit down with a guitar and walk you through the paces of how to sing in harmony.

Important Points to Consider
This is a complete vocal training program. However, you must be dedicated to the exercises, lessons, and practice routines.
If you’re not sure this program is right for you, take a look at the Aaron Anastasi YouTube channel to get a feel of his coaching style.
All of the lessons are suitable for beginners and intermediate singers.
The coach provides separate singing lessons for female and male singers.
So, why are there separate lessons for men and women?
Women and men sing in a different range of pitches, which is why vocal coaches teach men and women differently. Of course, men and women still need to learn the same acoustic and breath management techniques, but the approach is slightly different.
There are differences in the pitches they can sing and for that very reason, the coach offers two sets of lessons. Generally, women don’t need to warm up as long as men do, because the male vocals have such a wide range in their chest voice, while a woman’s vocals switch over to the head voice much sooner.
Vocal Coaching Club
If you decide to purchase the SSM program and want to continue to improve your singing voice you can sign up for the Vocal Coaching Club. The first month of the VCC will cost one dollar. Ongoing membership is $19.95 a month.
With a club membership, you’ll receive new videos and singing tips each month. The videos feature advanced breathing techniques, power singing, pitch improvements and a guide on fixing common vocal problems.
If you’re like many singers and have the relentless dedication and drive to hit those high notes and increase your range, then access to the Vocal Coaching Club can be a huge asset considering you’ll enjoy new material and videos every month. Plus, the best part of the club is feedback from Anastasi. Once a month he encourages members to send in an MP3 file or video of their singing for a personal critique. This is a great option for buyers who feel that they need one on one coaching and feedback.
However, you do need to purchase the main course in order to be eligible for membership to the coaching program.
While the main Superior Singing Method is the perfect choice for the beginner, the intermediate singer will love the advanced material, lessons, and techniques that are offered with the monthly membership program.
The advanced program works with intermediate and advanced singers, providing a variety of routines and new techniques and exercises that are designed to continue to strengthen and challenge the vocals.
Members will also get full access to the bonus products:
• Vocal health
• High notes
Members will learn how to develop their head voice, how to correct common singing mistakes, and how to improve tone, vocal agility, and pitch.

The training is designed to expand the vocal muscles that are causing poor pitch. The program’s creator has incorporated very effective vocal exercises that will help to strengthen the vocal cords quickly, for rapid improvement.
You’ll also learn plenty of techniques and tricks that can expand your singing range. The program also teaches you how to get the best tone out of your voice, in addition to how to identify your unique tones.
The in-depth lessons discuss how to eliminate tension in the vocals by following simple techniques that were developed by Anastasi, that will allow you to sing with more confidence and power.
We feel that the program offers plenty of effective vocal exercises that are designed to strengthen the vocals and improve resonance.
First of all, the coach does a great job of covering all the key aspects of singing, from hitting high notes to acquiring vocal agility and gaining more power. Users will also learn how to increase their range, improve their pitch and how to sing for longer periods of time without straining their voice.
Another aspect of the program we enjoyed was its accessibility. You can easily pack up your tablet or laptop and read it anywhere. If you have an internet connection and a pair of headphones handy you can also enjoy the instructional videos when you’re on the go.
The included lessons are very easy to understand, especially since you can watch videos where the instructor himself will teach you by showing you exactly how to do it.
The overall tone of the program is easy going, making each module flow smoothly, so you’ll find that it’s actually fun to watch and participate.
Most buyers reported that they noticed ongoing improvement starting at week two.
We also noted that the structure of the course is very easy to follow, which will motivate you to continue to improve and follow the daily vocal exercises.
Since the program is provided in an electronic format, you’ll receive a download link instantly after your payment has been received.
Lastly, purchasing this program is much more affordable than traditional singing lessons.
The coach also offers a sixty-day money back guarantee if you feel that the program simply didn’t work for you.
Cons: While the coach does a great job of covering every base in order to help you learn the correct way to sing, a real-life vocal coach could help you to prefect your tone or answer any questions you may have regarding vocal exercises or other techniques.
Another issue for some people is the time requirement. The coach stresses the importance of using the program daily. Make sure you’re willing to commit ten to fifteen minutes a day on working to strengthen your vocals in order to experience the best results. Following this program requires discipline and dedication. For some, the amount of material can be overwhelming.
