"My name is Duane Reno, and I've been singing since before I can remember. Many people along the way have influenced me in my musical journey- from my elementary, middle, and high school teachers, to my boys choir conductor, professional artists, and so on. Singing is a part of who I am. I can't remember a time when I wasn't singing. I even asked my wife to be my girlfriend when "Girlfriend" by Nsync came on the radio.
About a year and a half ago, I half-heartedly auditioned for a full-time singing position that I really wanted. I thought I was good enough just to slap something together and get accepted. I wasn't. Later, I submitted another audition for another opportunity and barely met the requirement. I asked the assessor what I could do to get better. He told me that if I really wanted to get better, to consider purchasing the Singing Success 360 program (Thank you Daniel Puls).
So I did. I bought Singing Success 360 on September 20, 2017. I plugged the disks in on the way to and from work. It was an eye opener. It began to humble me, and that's what I needed to move forward.
I continued to use the disks until I left for vocal training in January 2017. Guess what, Singing Success is the program they use to train their vocalists! I was submersed into the Singing Success program and spent hours a day developing my voice. I returned mid-March and performed the day after I returned with a band I performed with the summer prior. They couldn't believe the transformation that took place!
Knowing that the product works, I bought the Mastering Mix program shortly thereafter. Then I received a notice for new membership opportunities and the benefits that were provided in the VIP membership.
Are you kidding me?! I get direct access to THE MAN in vocal training as well as with HIS TEAM?! Why wouldn't I jump at this opportunity?
The Wednesday Warm-ups have allowed me to see various ways to warm up the voice depending on a variety of variables. They've covered how to warm-up when fatigued, how to work on pharyngeal/head/chest/mix presence, male/female voice types etc.... and when you're doing it real time you can provide comments/questions about the pertaining process. Because they are all done through Facebook live, they can be viewed again in the future. Brett
's decision to provide insight into the music industry has been great! He has opened my eyes to things I never knew about the music industry. He's also provided tips and motivation for pursuing music in a greater capacity.
The Q and As have allowed me to get specific guidance about trouble areas I encounter in the Singing Success program and receive real-time answers.
Consequentially, I feel as though I have begun to get to know the Associates, not just know about them. It was awesome to see Benny
get his blue belt, find out about KTs cats and pregnancy (congrats!), Shelby
's blogging and disdain for running, Ben Waites
' awesome journey to becoming an associate, and Chanelle
's recent trip for a masterclass. What better people to be connected to when you're wanting to grow as a vocalist?
And this group is filled with people that are on that same journey. There's nothing but encouragement and support in the group. It's awesome. I didn't know until I joined the group that there was such a bomb singer in the same area as me (Sarah Cleary
Oh yeah, all the programs that Singing Success offers are available through the VIP Membership. I never thought I needed work on my vibrato until I went through the Mastering Vibrato program.
I am incredibly thankful to Brett
, for sharing his knowledge and passion of music with others, and his team, who have invested in countless singers aspiring to improve themselves. If you're wanting to - get better as a vocalist, build a network of support with people aspiring to do the same, and receive interactive opportunities with some of best coaches who train different styles, genres, and walks of life - you're not going to find a better opportunity. Especially at this price point.
I dare you to try it and not get better. - Duane Reno
