One of the Best Online Beginner Singing Programs!

It includes basic vocal training courses, style development, song interpretation training, improvisational training of riffs and runs, and many more.

The HOME page starts with a simple design like this:

30 Day Singer review

The 30 Day Singer has a similar format as GuitarTricks.com, and that is – having multiple teachers teach the same level of training.

This might seem odd to you.

Why would you have several beginner courses in the same program?

But when you think about it, that is actually a brilliant idea…

30 day singer review

Why So Many Teachers Teaching the Same Level?

The fact that 30 Day Singer has several teachers giving the same level of training only benefits the students.

The reasons are the following:

1. Different teachers have different strengths.

For vocal training, even the gender of the teachers could make a difference in the training.

Different voice teachers could demonstrate different kinds of vocal tones to the students. 

When a male teacher demonstrates high notes for female students, he could only imitate female sound.

Also, some teachers are really good at explaining the science behind the vocal technique.

Others are more talented in guiding students in song interpretation.

2. Different teachers work for different students.

No matter how professional the teacher is, people communicate differently with their individual teaching styles. 

What works for one person may not work for another.

I fully appreciated that students could pick and choose which teacher to learn from in the 30 Day Singer program.

3. Students could work with the teacher they like.

From my own experience as a professional voice teacher and singer, it’s very important that the students like their teachers.

 If the student doesn’t enjoy working with the teacher, it will really slow down the progress.

You are just not going to listen to someone you don’t like, plain and simple.

Effective Vocal Method for Beginners

The first course I examined was the introductory course by singer-teacher Camille van Niekerk.

Camille is a young artist, performer and voice teacher based in the Los Angeles area.

Her introductory course – 30 Day Beginner Course with Camille, starts with the most basic vocal exercises.

It includes lip trills, semi-occluded exercises, stretches, etc., to get the students warmed up for the challenging 30-Day training.

30 Day Singer Review

On the surface, one might think this is another re-packaged version of Speech Level Singing.

While there are some resemblance, Camille has a more creative approach in her vocal exercises and methods.

For example, she uses 1-5-1 intervals in the lip trills instead of the classic 12-tone arpeggios that are over-used. 

And also, the development of belt voice is also introduced in this training, which is something SLS tends to shy away from.

Simple and neatly-designed training platform

The training platform of the course is very simple and easy-to-use.

It is not overly sophisticated, but it has all the necessary content and notes about the lesson. 

30 Day Singer Review

Since this program is designed for beginners, one might expect the lessons and exercises to be very introductory all the way through.

In other words, BORING. 

However, as you go through the entire 30 day beginner course by Camille, you would find the quality of the training to be top-notch.

It is one of the most challenging beginner course in the market.

You will not be bored.

The essential vocal concepts, such as cord compression, TA and CT musculature, and others are explained in a very comprehensive way for beginners. 

30 Day Singer Review

The Most “Advanced” Beginner Singing Course

Vocal science is usually for advanced vocal students.

But in this program, they are teaching it at the most introductory course.

Vocal science is explained in a very comprehensive way that would benefit beginning students.

The training starts off with warm-ups and exercises that develops muscular balance and coordination.

It gets more challenging in the weeks to come. 

For example, Day 18 focuses on the training of the belt voice.

Belt training is usually more advanced and could be a little unsafe if mishandled.

To my satisfaction, the Day 18 lesson is delivered with care and precision.

Camille categorized the belt voice into 2 groups: CHEST BELT vs. MIX BELT.

Basically, chest belt sounds more solid and could be harsh at times, and mix belt is a little warmer in color and intensity.

It all depends on which one is the more desired sound for each individual student to train for.

30 Day Singer Review

Well-Rounded Training Curriculum

The 30 Day singing course also includes the development of song interpretation, stage presence, management of stage fright, song analysis, etc.

Please take note that so far we are looking at just on one single beginner course.

There is a total of 3 complete beginner singing courses taught by 3 professional teachers, each with their own specialties and nuances.

Also, 30 Day Singer is a singing program for beginners, but there is an Advanced Courses section. 

How interesting…

Advanced Courses:

The courses in the Advanced section are short and concise programs with 5-6 lessons teaching the essential skills of advanced singing.

Although not as complete and extensive, these bonus training is complementary to the main courses.

There is also a bonus Singing Tricks and Techniques section that contains the following short training courses by different teachers.

Singing Tricks and Techniques

We’re not done yet.

There is one more additional training section – Warm-ups and Vocal Health. 

The entire module is taught by the very talented Camille.

Camille has some pretty good nuances and unique perspective on vocal training.

Really impressive for a young voice teacher to be so knowledgeable in the art of singing.

Warm-ups and Vocal Health:

The Advanced, Singing Tricks and Techniques, and Warm-ups and Vocal Health courses are very short and concise.

Yet, the lessons are very effective and to-the-point.

It takes time to go through long and tedious courses.

You already have that in the Beginner Courses.

The Pros and Cons of 30 Day Singer

The 30 Day Singer singing program came as a surprise when it hits the market.

A great singing program like this is going to benefit a whole lo of singers.

This has been a very positive review.

However, now is the time to look at the pros and cons of The 30 Day Singer.

Here it is.

The Pros:

1. High-quality video production for vocal lessons.

2. Effective and healthy vocal methods.

3. Most well-rounded and complete vocal training for beginners.

4. Most professional voice teachers and artists as instructors.

5. Most effective and in-depth 30-day curriculum for developing singers.

6. Very affordable price of $29.95 per month.

The Cons:

1. Some advanced courses maybe too challenging for beginners.

2. No downloadable materials – mp3, PDF, or video downloads.

3. Monthly recurring fee (extremely worth it for the values provided)

4. Some style teachers are more instrumentalists than voice teachers.(Just my suspicion!)

In a nutshell, 30 Day Singer is one of the best singing programs for beginners.

Finally, Should You Invest in a Program Like This?

Yes.

I highly recommend this course.

The quality of training and the superior design of the teaching curriculum is one of the most complete.

This program should not be limited to just beginners.

It is almost good for singers of all levels. 

The monthly fee of $29.95 is nothing compared to one traditional voice lesson that costs anywhere from $50-150 USD.

It is very fairly priced.

If you make such a small and consistent investment, it’s more likely that you will commit more and get results.

  1. I thought this was like another superior singing method scam. Good review. I will buy this course for my little sister. Don’t forget to review :- Eric Arceneaux’s singing course, per bristow’s sing with freedom, singing for the stars/singer’s advantage by Seth Riggs. I believe these are all speech level singing courses .

    1. Nithin,

      These are great suggestions! Thanks so much! I will put them in my review list. 30 Day Singer came as a surprise for me. I was really impressed by the quality of the training – reminds me of the GuitarTricks format. Enjoy!

    1. Nithin,

      That’s great! I’m here to help singers improve and grow both technically and professionally. I’m still a full-time singer, so I will do my best to give more time and effort to this site so singers can benefit from it.

  2. Hi,

    Thanks for the detailed review. I have a couple of questions: Do you suggest to go with a vocal coach that is the same gender? With the 30 day to sing program, once I chose a specific instructor, can I later change to another one or will I be stuck with the one I initially chose for 30 days? Thanks.

    1. Bryan,

      For pop singing, there’s really not that much difference whether you studying with a male or female teacher. But if you are studying classical singing, I would suggest you go for the same gender.

      For 30 Day Singer, you can take the classes from which ever teacher you chose. You can also take classes from all of them. The materials are all on their training platform for you to enjoy.

      Hope this helps!

  3. Hi Rex,

    Thank you very much for all your informative reviews and the quality of your site.

    Can I ask for a suggestion? I’m a longtime bassist (who also knows a little bit of guitar).
    I finally decided to start learning singing, but I have huge huge problems in matching any pitch, probably due to a very bad ear.
    Is this course the right one for me or do you suggest something else?

    Thank you!

    Gabriele

    1. Gabriele,

      Definitely, this course is perfect for beginners like you. The theory and the teaching is very solid. I highly recommend 30 Day Singer for you.

      Rex

  4. Thank you for this valuable review!! I had a question regarding the monthly subscription (there’s very little information about price on their site). Do you have access to the materials that you already opened only during the time that you pay for the subscription? Meaning if I go through the course in a month, but would like to continue to access the material, do I still have to have my subscription open to do so? Thanks!!

    1. Gianna,

      All of the lessons are hosted on the 30 Day Singer platform. You have access to them for as long as you are subscribed.

      There are a lot of materials and classes on the platform, so you will always have materials and courses to learn during your subscription period.

  5. Hello love your reviews, i am an absolute complete beginner with no vocal training at all,read both your reviews on roger love singing academy and 30 day singer,would you recommend that i start off with 30 day singer then transition to roger love singing academy course 1 being an absolute beginner,or can i start right away with roger love,thanks

    1. Cal,

      Both programs are great for you. Roger’s course is good for singers of all levels because it trains balance and coordination which we could all work on no matter what level you are. 30 Day Singer is the best beginner course I have seen. It’s very well structured and challenging enough for the singer to stay motivated. Hope this helps!

  6. Hi Rex,

    It’s wonderful to stumble on your blog when researching online courses for my 8 year old daughter who loves singing.

    I shortlisted the 30 days singer and Robert Lunte Four Pillar.
    I kind of think the Four Pillar may be too deep for her age, so more tilt towards 30 days singer.

    Hope this is a good decision 🙂

    Thanks,
    Yanto @ Singapore

    1. Yanto,

      I love The 30 Day singer. I’m sure your daughter will benefit a lot from it, especially when the main teacher is a really good female singer.

  7. I have done 30 day singer for a month sped through a lot of the tutorials inside, all the beginner courses because I became serious and don’t have much else to do and I’m wondering should I go to 4 pillars of singing next?

      1. Hi Rex, thanks for your kind reply. I do feel Four Pillars is a bit too intense for my level, would you recommend any other beginner to intermediate courses?

    1. Did you also go through the advanced tutorials? I think it might be worth doing those before going to The Four Pillars. I got Robert’s Udemy version, and it seems to have some valuable content (although I’m a bit doubtful about things like training all the exercises in cry mode or whatever) but I do think that the depth is probably better for a later stage. To me, based on what I’ve looked at, it seems like the Advanced sections of 30 Day Singer has a lot of valuable content to master (and definitely take advantage of the complimentary monthly 15-minute check-in to make sure you have actually mastered some of the more challenging exercises or get feedback on a song!) before moving on to 4 pillars.

  8. Another thing that I think is worth mentioning in the review (maybe updating it might be best in case people don’t check the comments): 30 Day Singer also provides a complimentary 15-minute check-in with one of the vocal coaches where you can get feedback on your singing! I’m excited to use this feature to get pointers on the exercises / song work because one of the biggest things needed (especially for beginners) is live feedback, and this is a perfect balance between affordable content and live feedback! For context, I bought Dr. Dan’s Voice Essentials 1 (the online course plus three volumes of MP3 exercises and PDF manuals as part of a coronavirus special) and the Udemy lite version of Robert’s 4 Pillars. Yet, even after that, when 30 Day Singer was running a special ($99 annual membership), I bought it because it amounts to $8.25 / month, which is at least how much 15 minutes of a voice teacher’s time would count anyways! So to get an entire library of video content AND that is a bargain, in my opinion, and I think I’ll be kept busy with it for a while. Even without the special, the annual membership wasn’t too much worse (when I checked it before, it was $129, or $10.75 / month).

  9. Hi Rex,

    I’m so happy I found your website. I’d like you to kindly guide me to buy a beginners course. Here’s my situation:

    I’m an expat who’s been living in Asian for 20 years, and btw I lived in Taiwan, Taipei, near the muzha zoo for 6 years. As you know karaoke in Asia is very popular. However, my voice is an absolute mess, horrible, no tone, squeaking and trembling. People in KTV will always push you to sing, but when they hear me sing they take the mic immediately.. lol.

    All this to say I have no dream of becoming a good singer, I just want not to be off key and not to be embarrassed when I go to KTV. As you know when doing business in Asia it’s a must, especially if you’re in sales and bring your clients.

    What do you think would be the best beginners program to learn for someone like me?I am looking at superior singing and this 30 day singer. I think for me TVS and Roger Love is no use for me now.

    I truly appreciate your guidance.

    Martin

    1. Martin,

      Sorry for the late reply! If you are just starting out, I think 30 Day Singer is best for you. It has a very clear step-by-step guidelines and day-to-day training. So, you don’t have to think too much, just follow the training every day.

      It’s great to hear from a former resident of my hometown Taipei. Let me know if you have more questions. I promise I will reply more promptly.

  10. Hi, Rex! Thank you for your reviews. I have been thinking of doing an online program, but I wanted to ask your opinion on my situation.

    I went to school for music ministry, but I didn’t realize I had TMJ/TMD and mild sleep apnea. These conditions played a part in me losing my voice to MTD which somewhat persists today. On top of that, I was trained as a tenor although I may be a baritone. I love my school, but the issues I had required special attention, and I didn’t know until it was too late.

    I am likely starting a music ministry job soon, and I want to free myself from the beginner-level vocal skill plateau without hurting myself. I would love to be able to take online courses since they are more affordable in the long run. But is better to regularly see a professional vocal therapist that specializes in singing as well as an in-person vocal coach? Otherwise, are there online programs out there that would be compatible with a high-maintenance case like me?

    1. Hi Jesse,

      If you can find a vocal coach or therapist in your area, a really good one, that will be optimal. Otherwise, you have the option of finding the best ones in the world on the Internet. I didn’t have that when I was young. Now you do, so take advantage of the Internet and find what works best for you.

  11. Hello Rex!
    I am a 17-year-old student that has little to no chance of earning money right now so can you specifically recommend some sort of free materials or sources where I can get started in learning how to sing?
    I also kindly ask you to review KEN TAMPLIN VOCAL ACADEMY if you haven’t because I want to know if his program is indeed helpful and what he says is true or not because some of his principles are very convincing and the confidence he has is very motivating and of course the only way to confirm this is to join his program but like I’ve said, I pretty much cannot afford it.
    Another request (sorry if it is too much) of mine is that since you are a professional singer for years, can you explicitly define at least the vocal ranges of LOW and HIGH Baritone because, in comparison to my classmates, my vocal break is 4 to 5 notes lower but my head range is 3 to 4 notes higher which confuses me because if my chest register is lower than them then I should also have lower head range. So why is that? Looking forward to your reply. BTW Stay safe and wear a mask.

    1. Hi Stephen,

      Thank you for dropping by! There are a lot of free materials to study from. The only challenge is your own discipline and being organized with those material, because they come with snippets instead of a whole organized training course that you could easily follow. My opinions change from time to time because I am constantly learning. For now, I would suggest you check out Jaime Vendera’s free Youtube Q and A videos HERE. I studied with him last year and loved him to death. He is one of the best.

      For a free course, you could sign up for Robert Lunte’s free course. It’s more organized than Jaime’s free materials.

      Ken Tamplin is amazing, but his course is very expensive. It also will be difficult to practice his method without a teacher.

      The break for a baritone is usually E4, F4, or F#4. Sometimes a bass will have a low break at A3, Bb3, or B.

      There are ways to smooth out those breaks, but it takes work. I’m still refining my breaks after all these years. It’s a lifelong journey.

      Rex
