Be the Transformative Singer You Were Meant to Be
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?
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.
But 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!
