Here’s a nasty paradox: some of the most passionate singing students resist practice, or have even given up on singing.
It’s not that they’re lazy. They simply can't stand sounding ‘bad’ during a particular exercise. Self-criticism gets the better of them.
I’m the last singing teacher on the planet to judge people for this. I’ve been through all the mental and physical issues that kept me from singing with joy (this makes me a good teacher now).
But it frustrates me that a stupid psychological issue gets in the way of people's passion, like it once did with me. (What infuriates me is that criticism often starts with people telling someone: you can’t sing.)
Or sometimes it's a vocal issue that makes people think that they're just not meant for singing. But these issues can be solved: I've made it happen time and again.
Let me tell you this: your love for singing won’t go away. I’ve had first-time students of a very respectable age. My oldest freshman was 68!
So how to deal with all the mental (and technical) issues? We need to clean up the bad habits and replace them with new ones.
You need clarity. You need a clear system that will replace ‘That sounded bad!’ with an objective and fun system to build on.
It's this system that sets my course apart from other courses. Make singing click not about any particular technique (high notes, belting). It's about systematically taking yourself to new levels, and securing, aka 'clicking' that progress.
Learn my shoot-first-ask-questions-later method, that eliminates the hesitation which stops you from singing freely. I'll give you a fun and productive alternative to hesitating, over-thinking and beating yourself up.
Meet the enemies of your voice and deal with them: the areas in our body that are blocking your airflow. We’ll identify and deal with them. You have a voice already, but it's caged and shackled. I'll free it.
Drop the jaw, expand the ribs... It can be too much at once! I help you cluster these aspects in what I call the secret of the machine trick. Multitask without multitasking.
Together, we'll identify the areas of your singing where you make fastest progress: your bright spots. For fast and better results we leverage those first. That's more rewarding than concentrating on things that don't work!
We'll make huge progress with the BIG 5 pillars of a great voice. You'll enhance your: 1) breath support 2) range 3) volume 4) vocal endurance and 5) excess of airiness.
Say what now? Yep. Practice isn't just hard work that you suffer through until you reach your ultimate goal. You can be happy with it, and I'll give you my secret system to make that happen.
Choosing the wrong songs for practice or performance is an often-made mistake. We choose too difficult songs. I help you find the right song(s) that you ALSO love singing.
Exploring your voice makes your personality blossom, no matter what your goal is. Once you have made a habit of expressing yourself, it translates to other areas of your life.
"I'm a DIY singer-songwriter, meaning I perform, record, produce and master my own material. By far my biggest challenge has always been my voice.
Over the years I've taken 4 highly regarded paid online courses, one paid offline course (with cd’s), and a few years of one-on-one voice lessons. While those lessons all helped, progress was pretty glacial. So I signed up for Linor's course Make singing click. This course is far and away the best I've ever taken.
So many things can go wrong with our voice without us realizing it. It can result in singing off-key, or in having poor tone or instability, or in tiring and destructive vocal strain.
I knew entering the course that good support is crucial, and that muscle tension is a killer. But the translation of that knowledge into better singing had been elusive and slow. We are often simply unaware of habits that block our progress. For the first time, Make singing click gave me a set of tools to detect, isolate and correct the problems.
The results have been fantastic for me. I am excited about my progress, and about feeling less blocked.
The course is very well organized (not all courses are!). Also, Linor provides one-on-one assistance, via the comments, and in a part of the course where she assesses (privately) your own submitted video. No other online course I've taken did that and this personal assistance alone puts her course head and shoulders above the rest - the individualized tips are priceless.
This course employs a scientific methodology (i.e. it uses evidence based reasoning to detect and correct problems, and to stack correction routines on top of each other), which makes it very powerful and, again, sets it apart from the rest.
Last but not least, the course videos are just fun to watch - they have a light touch, and are sometimes hilarious!
Linor is both an experienced performer and an experienced teacher and this course is clearly the result of years of accumulated wisdom. I cannot recommend this course highly enough."

Become your own teacher
I'll show how to take all you've learned from me - or another singing teacher - and put it into action from now on. A life-long toolkit to making continuous improvement to your singing.
Some people think they 'can't carry a tune in a bucket'. But almost every beginning singer who came to me eventually learned how to sing in tune. They were not 'tone deaf'.
The key to singing in tune: it's not about controlling the melody, but about clearing the way for your voice. I'll show you how to control the pitch better by letting go of control.
--> Including my First aid kit for out-of-tune singers
"I do really well with structure. Now that I know how much I should be practicing, how often, as well as specific items to pay attention to and a process to improve them, I feel very guided! I feel so grateful that you put your skills into videos online because I can afford to practice sustainably anywhere I go. I can tell it's really helping. Your course is marvelous :) "

LINOR OREN // Your Singing Teacher
"Linor is boundlessly devoted to and ambitious for her students. She’s introduced me to a whole new world of musical creativity, ability, and confidence."
Coco Junge // Beginning singer
"The worst thing that happened in my singing life is that I stopped taking lessons for ten years after a bad experience with a previous teacher. That teacher was a great singer but she couldn’t teach at all. It messed up my voice.
I’m so glad I found Linor. From the first lesson I noticed that Linor doesn’t overwork your voice. I sing for fun now. I consider classical singing one of the most amazing things and I want to master it."
Ursula // Amateur opera singer
'Linor is a fantastic teacher, she opened the door of singing for me. She helps me to understand many aspects of voice techniques, postures and breathing. When I first learned from her 4 months ago, I had no idea that I could sing higher notes without straining, sing louder without forcing. She's an anatomist in singing. She can single out any unnecessary restain in your voice and help you to improve upon it.'

Stop postponing your desire to learn singing. Reach technical and mental milestones already this week. Pinpoint and eliminate your vocal issues, start singing songs you love well.
Chances are you've come across videos with voice tips. I have nothing against them. I post these videos too on my YouTube channel.
They can give you an insight and remind you of a technical aspect that was slipping. But know this:
In order for you to make a breakthrough as a singer, you will need a system, sustained focus and guidance to make it click. And that is my course, right there.
Linor is a great teacher. She helped me to get the best out of myself. Achieved a lot of results in a short time. In addition, I have overcome my fear of singing thanks to her and my voice. Thank you very much for your enthusiasm, attitude and nice lessons. Lots of love.'
Naomi Ayélé // Actress
"Linor was the first vocal coach I had who started correcting my posture before we got started. I am reminded of a good masseur I once had, who did not immediately start kneading my back, but first asked me to stand up, and concluded that one leg was half a centimeter shorter. Likewise, Linor corrected my neck and head, which led to a completely different sound. Already in a few lessons I have progressed tremendously. I reach my notes effortlessly for the first time, without having to force it.”

Linor Oren, SingWell
Make singing click is a carefully crafted series of video lessons in which I guide and coach you.
This course has all the basics and is suitable for beginners. However, the main insights of this course are ones I've learned after years of training, no longer a beginner - and it changed EVERYTHING. So if you are more advanced but feel stuck, or out of shape - this is for you too.
The material is compatible with what any good voice coach will teach you. View this course as an amplification of any teaching you might already follow. It's more than technique: it focuses on the mental foundation and on effective practice routines.
There are contact moments: i'll respond to your questions in the comment sections. And I'll give feedback by mail two times to your audio/video fragments. There are no Skype calls.
Unless there was damage done to your vocal cords, I don't see why you wouldn't be able to learn how to sing (again). It will probably take time, because either you are out of shape physically, or maybe you have gotten some bad vocal habits over the years.
In my course there are two moments where I ask you to send me a video of yourself singing, and I personally give you feedback on it. You can also always ask questions and I answer them personally in the comments.
Nope, you’re not In fact, I’ll immediately tell you to put the effort it takes you to worry about your age into getting better at singing. I’ve had students in their late 60’s starting with learning how to sing and booking pretty fast results.
This course is not about any particular genre: it's about the technique and mental attitude that underlies any style. My bel canto/opera background simply assures that your technique will be rooted in centuries of knowledge.
It's accessible to you for an unlimited time. You'll be able to log in and access all the videos, replays of live sessions and course material, any time you want. There is no time limit at which point you lose access to the course. If, at one point in the (distant) future, I would have plans to close the website down, I'll mail you 3 months in advance with the option to download all the video content.
