If you picture yourself five years down the road, what do you see?

Try this on...

 

You are on an open stage, spotlights glaring, music enveloping you, your voice pouring effortlessly and expressively from you. An audience of captive listeners is wildly applauding, celebrating the gift you're sharing with them. They leave the performance utterly transformed by your performance.

While deciding how to spend the sumptuous performer's fee you just received, you are approached by someone from the audience who congratulates you on your performance, and offers you another gig on the other side of town.

You haven't auditioned in several years because you continue to receive offers like this one after performing concerts that you yourself have set up, marketed, and profited from. You perform on a regular basis, creating a consistent stream of revenue that augments the other parts of your career that you are so passionate about.

Perhaps you teach a private studio of dedicated students...

Perhaps you run regularly scheduled workshop series or singing class...

Perhaps you work with a non-profit to bring the arts to under-privileged youth...

Perhaps you find joy and fulfillment in something outside of music that complements and balances your artistic side...

You are not successful because you are busy.

You are successful because you are fulfilled - artistically, emotionally, spiritually, and financially.

You have a deep sense of artistic purpose and meaning. You sing for a reason. You sing to change lives. You sing to bring a little more beauty and light into the world.

You sing with pure joy, determination, confidence, artistic excellence. You trust your voice implicitly to express every emotion in every song you sing.

Sound like a good 5-year plan? What about a 2-year plan? Or maybe even a 1-year plan?

These are the dreams that a Transformative Singer dares to dream. These are the dreams that we have made a reality for ourselves, and which we help other singers to achieve each and every day!

Why listen to us?

Great question!

 

Allow us to introduce ourselves. We are Drs. Stefanie and Graham Anduri, founders of Sing For Your Lives.

 

We know what it is like to be chasing the dream life of singing on the world's big stages and feeling like it might never happen. But with the right guidance, that dream can and WILL come to fruition!

Between the two of us, we have over 50 combined years of international performance experience in opera, musical theatre, choir, barbershop, rock, bluegrass, and heavy metal. While getting our doctoral degrees in Vocal Performance and Pedagogy, we both began a decade-long career teaching music at the university level, with Graham serving as the Director of Voice Studies for five years.

When the two of us met in undergrad, we both had our sights set on the major world stages. We wanted to travel everywhere, live the bohemian lifestyle, and make a comfortable living doing nothing but singing operas.

 

Of course, we were young and naïve, and the reality turned out to be much different than that.

 

There was no prescribed path for us to find the kind of success that we did.

 

We had to blaze our own trail, navigate uncharted waters, and learn from some hefty mistakes along the way.

 

But we made it work!

 

Our lives look very different now from the starry-eyed daydreams that we had back in those early days. In fact, they are even better than we could have imagined back then!

 

Instead of constantly being apart, living out of hotels, and only singing what someone else wants us to sing when someone else declares that we are worthy enough to sing it…

 

  • We have a stable home where we get to raise our two amazing boys

 

  • We have time and space to explore ALL of our artistic, creative, and intellectual interests

 

  • We find immense joy in sharing everything we’ve learned to help other vocal artists discover and reach their full potential  

 

  • We barely ever have to audition, and when we do – it’s on OUR terms

 

  • And yet, we still perform regularly, averaging 25-30 major gigs per year.

 

  • And the best apart is, we sing what we want to sing, when we want to sing it – and GET PAID 10s of THOUSANDS of $$ EACH YEAR TO DO IT!

 

  • Plus, we still get to travel the world to share our voices and our experience with audiences everywhere.

 

After many years of professional dry spells, it was so liberating to finally have a wide variety of outlets to perform, to teach, to present, and to make a consistent income that allowed us to THRIVE instead of just “survive.”

 

But finding success for ourselves was not enough to keep us satisfied.

 

We saw so many singers struggling through the same challenges, and dropping out of the game simply because they didn’t know which way to turn when things got hard.

 

We knew that we needed to share what we had learned with the next generations of singers.

After ten years teaching in academia, we started recognizing the shortcomings in the level of whole-artist training provided by the higher education system.

 

So much of the focus of this path was on ‘BUILDING THE VOICE,’ but almost no attention was given to the other things that really mattered.

 

 

  • Things like leveraging all your talents and passions to craft your own unique, multi-dimensional career as an artist

 

  • Things like knowing how to market yourself so that the right people know about you and WANT to come hear you sing

 

  • Things like understanding your “WHY” so you have the motivation to push through the hard times

 

  • Things like knowing how to tell the stories of humanity in a way that transforms people’s hearts and minds, and changes the way that we all interact with each other

 

  • Things like creating your own performance and audition opportunities so you can steer your career – and your LIFE – in the direction you want it to go!

​​

So we decided to step out on our own and create a program that could provide aspiring professional singers with the full package of tools that they would need to succeed in this demanding career path. 

 

Now,  we help singers all over the world to Transform their Voices, Transform their Careers, and Transform their Lives!

Singer Success Stories

John is a professional singer/actor in New Zealand. When he came to us, he was struggling from a sense of overwhelm, vocal insecurity, and a lack of career focus that prevented him from pursuing his goals.

 

Now, he is regularly performing lead roles in plays, musicals, and operas with professional companies around New Zealand, with four major productions under his belt in the past four months alone!

Philip is an operatic tenor who finished a graduate degree and a performance diploma at a prestigious institution, yet continued to come up dry in audition after audition.

After just a couple of weeks of embodying the Transformative Singing approach, he landed his first role with a professional company, which was followed by another professional opera contract shortly afterward. 

Jordi is a multi-genre singer and mother of four young kids from Arizona who put her performing career on hold to start a family. She has been teaching a private vocal studio for ten years, and wanted to find ways to augment her teaching income without adding more time to her schedule, while also honing her performance skills to get back in the performing game.

Now, she offers a lucrative vocal workshop series that maximizes her time/dollar ratio, and is singing better than ever across multiple styles of music!

Cassidy is an up-and-coming musical theatre artist from Louisiana who suffered from a severe lack of confidence in her abilities, despite her incredible talent. As such, she didn't know what steps to take to put herself out there and get noticed, so her career was stagnating.

Now, she is planning an audition trip to Germany after receiving glowing feedback from a casting director in Hamburg, is creating her own performance opportunities, she is talking with producers about putting out her own amazing compositions, and she is starting her own private teaching studio.

Temperance is already a successful musical theatre performer and arts administrator who wanted to find ways to break out of the post-audition "Waiting Game." 

On top of maximizing the emotional impact of her performances through the Transformative Singing Process, she is also creating new streams of income and artistic fulfillment as a creative entrepreneur and civil rights advocate.

 

If you find yourself...
  • Longing for a successful performing career but not knowing how or where to begin

  • Devoting all of your time and energy to a job that you aren't passionate about

  • Letting your voice and performing career stagnate because you can't find the time

  • Doubting your vocal abilities, even though you get encouragement from others

  • Coming up against limitations in your vocal technique

  • Wondering how to exploring other vocal styles

  • Auditioning constantly but not getting anything from those auditions

  • Feeling like you need to do everything perfectly whenever you open your mouth to sing

  • Being artistically and professionally constrained by performance anxiety  

  • Feeling like you have to be ONLY  a singer in order to be considered a successful professional

  • Wanting to find meaningful, purposeful ways to incorporate your other passions and talents into your career 

...then this program is EXACTLY what you need!
            Even if you...
  • Have never sung professionally, or you've sung professionally for years

  • Have zero music degrees or five music degrees

  • Love singing Richard Strauss, Rhianna, RENT, or your own original material

  • Don't think you are worthy of investing in yourself

  • Don't yet see a pathway to achieve your performing dreams

  • Have already tried to pursue a singing career without success

"What's my investment?"

Let's cut to the chase. The full price of the program is $3,596 paid in 4 installments of $899. Or you can save $600 by making 1 payment of $2,997.

We understand that investing in your personal growth and development is a huge decision. After investing tens of thousands of dollars in our own career development, it's a decision we've made many times over, and have reaped untold benefits as a result.

In fact, we paid more than double that amount for a coaching program and were able to triple the return on our investment within just a few months!

Our goal is not just to help you sing and perform better, but to put you on a path to success that will allow you to more than recoup your own investment in this program.

Right now, there are two possible choices to make, and both entail a cost.

Choice 1). Create your future! - Invest in your personal growth and development so that you can have the performing career beyond what you've always dreamed of. This includes a monetary cost.

Choice 2). Wait for the future to happen to you. This means not seeking guidance, not making progress in your singing, not developing your career - in essence, stagnating. This is called an "opportunity cost" because it is costing you the opportunity to become the most fulfilled version of yourself. 

Choosing to pay the opportunity cost means you are choosing to stay stuck in your current circumstances, and leave your desired future as nothing more than a wish.

Choosing to create your future means you are choosing growth, discovery, development, and transformation. It means you are creating the future version of you that you yearn to become.

 
 
Dive
The choice is yours to make.

Either tip-toe carefully through life, hoping for the right things to eventually come your way, and forever wonder what could have been if you had walked through this open door...


...or dive head-first into Opportunity, Possibility, and Transformation, and create the kind of life that you can look back on when you are 90 and say, "Wow! I really did all that!"
"When do I need to make a decision?"

Here's the cool thing, 

It's your life - you get to decide what you do whenever you want to do it!

But here's our advice from many lessons learned the hard way:

1. Go with your gut! Which of those two choices FELT like the right choice to you? Your intuition is powerful, and is actually more likely to lead you in the right direction.

Your logical, critical, intellectual mind is more likely to trap in the dreaded "paralysis by analysis" mode, which takes you back to the stagnation of the "Waiting Game" all over again. 

2. Act sooner than later. The longer you wait and think about it, the more likely you are to talk yourself out of change, out of growth, out of progress.

That's not the only reason to act soon. This program in its current iteration and current price point are only going to be available for a limited time. We thrive on growth and improvement, and we are constantly updating and upgrading what we offer. That means that this program will grow to be bigger and better over time, but the price will inevitably change to match the growing value of the program.

But here's the cool thing about acting now! Since you have lifetime access to the Career Mentorship Core Curriculum as well as the Transformative Singing Course, you will automatically have access to the new and improved versions as they roll out - without having to pay anything extra for it! This means you are getting a constant increase in the value of your investment over time.

So what are you waiting for?!
