***August 2014 Update***

So I got a comment on the blog from one of our readers that opened up my eyes to something very important for anyone considering to buy this program. You can read the comment on this page.

Apparently, Haley Williams may have ended up with nodules (a growth under the skin) and she thought she wouldn’t be able to sing again.

And the cause – “improper techniques and bad habits she learned in the past.”

And yes, Haley Williams did have Brett Manning as a vocal coach. You can read about it on Paramore’s blog – there’s also a video.

Now, it doesn’t specifically say it was this program or Brett Manning’s training that caused this.

So it’s impossible to say this course doesn’t work or shouldn’t be followed or that the techniques gave Haley Williams nodules.

I personally liked the course, but I’ve tried others before it.

So if you’re interested in trying the course, try it out and judge for your self.

My Personal Story With “Singing Success”

If you’ve read some of the other online singing lesson reviews on this site, you’ll know I’ve tried some of the other major courses out there. I really like a couple of them but I have to say this was the most professional one out there – and it better be for that price tag.

Higher Price = No Problem

I know many people might be turned off from the high price of the product ($199.95) – but I wasn’t. That’s because it comes with a 6 month guarantee. If you don’t improve enough that you think the course is worth it, they’ll give you all your money back, no questions asked. (Luckily I didn’t have to…)

But that in itself made buying the program a no-brainer. So I picked it up, and didn’t expect too much. But hey, I didn’t mind, I could always return it if it didn’t work out too well.

I already knew how to sing when I first got my hands on the video lessons, so I wasn’t expecting anything crazy when I first dug into the program…

Boy Was I Wrong…

I went through the first couple lessons, practiced a bit – it felt a bit different, but didn’t notice much else. It was pretty much what I expected – a course designed to help you become a better singer.

Great…

I already went through another course, so I knew how to sing.

An Unexpected Twist

But then… as I kept on going through the course (I wasn’t about to stop now, I paid good money for it!) and practicing the different techniques Brett and the team teach, I started to notice improvements in my ability to control and transition my voice.

Even though I thought I had pretty decent control, this course seemed like it was taking me to another level. I was excited…

So I kept it up, kept on practicing and learning the different lessons.

Massive Shift In The Way I Sang

By the end of the course I was honestly floored at the improvements I had made in my voice by following this program.

It was because the course is taught in a way that pretty much MAKES you take control of your voice and all the organs in your body that help you sing.

If you stick with the practicing, you’ll definitely improve with the course.

The Best Part

I actually forgot about the best part of the course for a while – the 15 minute phone consultation. 15 minutes may not seem like a lot, but trust me it’s MORE than enough to make a difference.

My 15 Minute Phone Call:

When I finally did make the call, I asked about a problem I was specifically having with my vocals.

It wasn’t a problem really – just an area I knew I needed improvement on (transitioning between my head and chest voices).

And no lie – within the 15 minutes the vocal coach (not Brett Manning, unfortunately) was able to help me with it a lot! I don’t have trouble with that stuff anymore.

Why Its The Best Part:

This was worth the price of the course in itself – the vocal coaches charge THOUSANDS of dollars for their time (obviously.. they work with Grammy winners…).

So getting this as part of a home-study vocal lesson was great.

Final Recommendation

You’d should at least try this vocal program out. It was made by one of the best in the business. Brett Manning coaches award winning superstars using this exact same method. Why wouldn’t you want to learn from him?

Whether you know how to sing really well or are a complete beginner – this course will take your voice (and your control of it) to another level altogether.

It may be high priced, but the bonuses and the 6 MONTH (yes.. you read right… 6 MONTH) money-back guarantee make it an easy decision. If you don’t like it, don’t improve or just don’t want to spend the money, you can return it no questions asked.

My thoughts? Get the program – you won’t be disappointed.

Singing Success Reviews

What To Expect – In Depth

Singing Success is a course by Brett Manning. Manning is a widely acclaimed vocal coach and has worked with many different artists that you might’ve heard of. He’s worked with people like Keith Urban,  Taylor Swift and many others.

The program itself was created about 15 years ago but that doesn’t really matter because it’s still one of the number one online vocal lessons available on the market. It’s composed of 12 different audio CDs and a 16 page workbook.

Get Singing SuccessThe Bonuses

It also has a studio training DVD and a free 15 minute phone consultation for everyone who purchases.

That in itself is well worth the price of the products. The 15 minute phone consultation was enough for me to seriously consider this program. This is because you actually get to talk to a live vocal coach who will guide you through the specific problems that you’re having. It’s a great part of the product and well worth the price itself.

Practicing With Brett Manning

The recommended practice time is 3 to 6 days per week.  The more you practice the faster you’ll learn, but you don’t want to push yourself too hard because you’ll end up ruining your voice. So be sure to keep track of how your voice is doing throughout the 12 audio CDs.

I basically recommend going through one of the audio CDs, then referring to the workbook when you need to. Next, practice what you learned on that audio CD for about one week before moving onto the next one. This is going to make it a longer online vocal course than something like the superior singing method, but it’ll help you really master everything that comes in the course.

A Thorough Vocal Course

This is a very, very thorough course that will take you through all the different areas you need to learn to really make a difference with your voice. Here are some of the different topics covered in this course:

  • range extension,
  • breathing techniques,
  • mixing your vocal registers,
  • less effort but more power,
  • whistle register,
  • vibrato,
  • trills, licks and runs
  • A lot more.

17255028_SSABWLogoThere are 17 total lessons throughout the 12 audio disks that you get. And there are dozens of different exercises that Brett Manning gets you to do. The system that Brett uses in his training is one of the most effective vocal coaching techniques used in the world today.

If you really want to increase the power, range and pitch of your voice you should really look at getting this system. Once you’ve gone through some of the lessons and experience the kinds of things Brett teaches you, it’s easy to know why he works with some of the biggest artists in the world.

For Beginners, Pros, Men and Women Alike

The course goes into some very basic techniques but it also teaches you how to become a truly professional singer. There’s some advanced techniques that you’re going to learn in this course that won’t be in any other singing courses.

However, having said that there are some techniques in those courses (reviewed here) that you’re not going to find in this particular course. But honestly, it is fact-based and is taught by some of the best in the business. This course is amazing.

And if you’re crazy like me you’re going to buy everything and go through it all.

The great thing about this course is that Brett provides you with different audio examples based on whether you’re a man or woman. Guys and girls both get different audio examples tailor-made for them.

Easy to Follow Videos

The course is very easy to follow and there’s a ton of different exercises that you get to do. There are audio CDs included in this which makes it kind of a pain if you ever want to download it to your MP3 player. (I don’t even know if I CAN play CDs anywhere.. other than my computer).

Personally, I prefer to stream or download MP3s but I do like the style of the superior singing method because it’s also video-based. But audio courses are just as effective as video ones. I just like watching videos rather then listening to audio. Having said that that it doesn’t take anything away from the course if you don’t mind just listening.

Final Thoughts

All in all Singing Success is a really great course that you should get if you’re interested at all in improving your voice. I like a lot of different music courses. And I’m all about learning everything I can. If you can only choose one it’s really up to you what you prefer.

Both this and the other courses we review on this site are great courses. The various courses have differences in the way they are taught. So what you’re going to want to do is figure out how you like to learn and choose that product.

I’d recommend this one just because it has a super-long refund time limit, and is taught by the best in the biz. If I had to do it over again, I’d probably get this vocal course first and see where I was at before getting the other ones.

However, the other courses I’ve tried have also given me huge improvements in my singing voice.

The Verdict

Singing success with Brett Manning is one of the best courses I’ve seen online.

I’ve seen a lot of different ones and have read a lot of different books. I also watch a lot of different videos and I only review the ones that I believe really help people sing better on my site.

Brett Manning’s Singing Success is one of those courses that I really, really like.

I’d recommend this to anybody who really wants to improve their vocals. Whether you’re a novice or somebody who already sings all the time, there’s something that you’ll find in this course that’s going to make you a better singer.

Here’s a quick video that will show you the quality and caliber or training you’ll get.

  1. Hi. I am considering buying the singing success program. Do you post the CD,s or am I meant to download them from the net. I am not computer savvy so I prefer to have the actual CD. Also, is there any further costs apart from the initial $199. Is that all I pay for the whole course? Thanks Gwen

    • Hi Gwen,

      Great! I’m glad you’re deciding to try out a singing lesson program. They are really helpful.

      We’re not the distributors of Singing Success, but we are affiliates. When you purchase the program by clicking here you can choose to have the physical CDs shipped to you. Download is also easy, but it’s totally up to you.

      If you’re not sure where to go or what to click on the order page, etc. let me know and I’ll help you navigate it 🙂

      All the best with your singing!

    • Get it!!! I am a natiral skeptic and I looked at a TON of programs. This is one of the few purchases in my life that actually exceeded my expectations. Brett has a gift for understabding the science of singing and explaining and teachibg it in an understandable way. Id be happy to answer any questions u may have. It is an investment well worth it.

  2. Hi My name is Danny and I have been doing a lot of research on how to sing better or which DVD is the most helpful. So I came across the singing success program and I actually like the program because it’s an actual coach that has worked with some big names in music industry and he is also affordable. But my main question is I can’t sing at all and was wondering if this program would really help me out in the long run.

    • Hi Danny,

      Thanks for your comment. I’m glad you’re looking at getting some help with learning how to sing.

      Singing Success is a good program, and I think it can help you even if you can’t sing at all. It will teach you how to control your voice better and develop a more consistent tone/sound.

      One thing you want to remember is that the voice you’re born with isn’t the end of it – you can train it to sound better when singing. And that’s what all the programs are about that we review here.

      But there are some concerns I had about Singing Success that I stated in the review above.

      I’d say give it a try. There’s a money-back guarantee so you don’t really have anything to lose.

      Thanks again!

  3. Hi, i am considering buying singing success or superior singing method..i have never taken lessons before..and im 18 male with low voice(bass voice)..i could only reach D4 next to middle C before flipping into falsetto..which program do u recommend that helps to sing higher for pop music? thanks!

    • Hi JJ,

      I used to recommend Singing Success and Superior Singing Method equally, but I think I’m leaning more towards Superior Singing Method nowadays. Contrary to popular belief, you don’t always have to sing in falsetto to hit the high notes. With the proper training you can definitely get there.

      I’d suggest starting with Superior Singing Method. If you find it isn’t what you hoped you could always return it and try Singing Success out since they both have money back guarantees.

  4. Hi,

    I’ve actually had Singing Success for a good few years and whilst I think it’s a good program I always feel like I’m doing it wrong – I’ve also had lessons with coaches, I do tend to go back to it every year or few months and try and start it again, but I’m wondering if you can give any guidance on how to do it properly? You say 3-6 times a week, and just going through the each CD at least for a week before moving onto the next, but would you say you’re actually speaking the exercises rather than ‘singing’ them, if that makes any sense? (Obviously from the Speech Level Singing I’d guess I’m correct but I always seem to find it so complicated).

    • Hey Michael,

      I’m glad you like Singing Success – I did too. I’m not quite sure I understand your question. I don’t necessarily feel like I’m speaking the exercises rather than singing them.

      You may be doing this because you’re not sure of the pitch of your voice. Something that may help you is to get a cheap piano, and start practicing with it. Play a C note, and try to hum along in-tune with that note. Do it for all 12 notes regularly and I’m sure you’ll notice where you need to make changes to your pitch.

      If you still can’t tell, try recording yourself humming a C Note along with the piano. Play it back and see if you can notice a difference in pitch between the piano note and your voice.

  5. Hi I want to buy the singing program but I would like to do it in payments but I’m not sure how.
