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

Try this on...

You haven't auditioned in several years because you continue to receive offers to perform high-level gigs 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 augmented by 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 simply 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 1-year plan? Or maybe even a 6-month 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.

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 other 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 five major productions under his belt in the past four months alone!

Temperance was 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 now creating new streams of income and artistic fulfillment as a creative entrepreneur and civil rights advocate.

 

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, is singing better than ever across multiple styles of music, and is creating new performance opportunities for herself.

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.

Philip came to us a a highly trained, yet frustrated young artist. He had finished a graduate degree and a Performance Diploma from a prestigious music conservatory, but was consistently coming up empty-handed from auditions. 

Within two weeks of the INFUSE program, he had transformed his performance paradigm, started to recognize his inherent value as an artist, discovered new possibilities in his voice, and landed his first professional opera contract. This was followed by three more professional contracts in only a few month's time.

If you find yourself...
  • Longing for a more consistent and sustainable performing career but not knowing how or where to begin

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

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

  • Coming up against limitations in your vocal technique

  • Wondering how to explore other vocal styles to diversify your performance repertoire

  • Auditioning constantly but getting contracted for less than 10% of those auditions

  • Unsure of how to market yourself effectively

  • Wanting to know how to create your own concerts, workshops, and events that contribute to your income

  • Feeling like you're a failure if you don't 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...
  • Haven't had a high-level professional performance yet - we help emerging pros find their first professional gigs all the time

  • Have been already performing professionally for years and feel stuck at your current stage - you're already ahead of the game! A few fundamental shifts to the way you think and the way your operate will bring about PROFOUND changes!

  • Don't have a music degree - some of our most talented and successful clients never received a degree

  • Love singing Richard Strauss, Rhianna, REO Speedwagon, RENT, or your own original material - our clients span a wide range of musical and vocal styles

  • Don't think you are worthy of investing in yourself - recognizing and owning your inherent value is one of the biggest mindset shifts that we help all of our clients to embody

  • Don't yet see a pathway to achieve your performing dreams - that's what mentorship is all about. We illuminate the path before you so you don't have to scramble around in the dark (we already did that for you!)

  • Feel like you have already tried and failed to have a successful performing career - The most successful pro baseball players strike out 70% of the time. Your career will always have peaks and valleys. It is defined by your peaks, but determined by how you move through the valleys.
