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).

Great Vocal program
This is a great vocal program. I would not rely on it as a main source of vocal training, but it is a great add on.
