James Lugo Vocal Asylum is rated 4.6 out of 5 by 5 .
Rated 4.5 out of 5 by from Cool ! Day 1 and somehow it made me sing more confident on the high notes ( A4 and even D5, btw im an tenor) i need practice tough. Relaxation is key here. I think you need a little info on the basic before seeing this, so is more easy to understand. Not that he doesnt cover the basics. If you have experience then check it out and see if it help you !

Rated 4.5 out of 5 by from I could notice my voice change by just following the video. This is a great course. I learned a lot, and if you apply and practice what James teaches here I am sure anyone can get great results. Personally, I noticed my voice changing and being "lighter", easier to sing just by going through it once. Of course, I need to practice and make it more unconscious before I master it but it certainly worked great. The only thing missing is some practice videos as this course explains and then just gives quick exercise examples (which are good enough to understand but there are not enough to practice).
