A must for any rock singer or screamer

By Cannonball James

from Branson MO

Comments about Alfred The Zen Of Screaming Dvd/Cd:

First of all, for the people that are giving it bad reviews and saying it covers mostly singing, training your voice is the foundation of ALL vocals, melodic singing and screaming alike. But unlike traditional vocal instructors, her teaching is specifically designed for the rock/metal vocalist, whether you just put a little edge in your voice, or whether you're wanting rip your face off screams. But learning how to properly produce the tones, how to breathe, how to lift the sound out rather than push it out, if you don't have that, you CAN'T just jump straight to screaming. I've been playing hard rock and metal for almost 15 years, doing both lead vocal and back up during that time, and I've done the old way, which trashes your voice. We'd have to spread out the songs, and if there was one that was just all out screaming, it had to be the last one that I sang in, because my voice was toast. Learning how to sing with "heat" and scream with "fire" lets me attain the same results without hurting, and I can go right back to regular singing. You only have one voice. If you wear it out too much for too long, you WILL loose it. Other musicians spend hundreds of dollars on cases for their instruments to keep them safe. But if you break a guitar, you can buy a new one. You can't replace your voice. Protect it.

    Comments about Alfred The Zen Of Screaming Dvd/Cd:

    I am not a screamer, but I'm the lead vocal in my band and I'm a female. I found the DVD and the CD very helpful. I warm up every day, whether I'm singing that day or not. Melissa has a way of making it to where the techniques become habit, which improves your vocal abilities every day. I would definitely recommend to anyone.

    Vocals Thrashed? Zen is the cure!

    By Dalv Alucard

    from Kansas City, MO

    Comments about Alfred The Zen Of Screaming Dvd/Cd:

    I noticed after shows that my voice was demolished. I tried everything: hot tea, honey, throat-ez, & more. One of my friends heard about this dvd/cd & told me about it. I figured, why not? This DVD saved my voice! I went from Hoarse after EVERY show to %98 normal after every show! The warm-ups seem a little silly @ first but you'll get over that if you can get over yourself!


    This is SO worth your time and money


    from Ontario, Canada

    Comments about Alfred The Zen Of Screaming Dvd/Cd:

    So I got this not really wanting to learn how to scream, I just wanted some gruffness to my voice. The video starts out showing you breathing techniques and iat first I was skeptical if this would actually work. Well it does. it works GREAT!. I'm so happy with my voice now. The teacher, Melissa Cross, is great. She is So much fun and she knows what shes talking about. Definalty buy this is if you want a good vocal routine.

    The zen of singing.... and intro to screaming

    By BrianL

    from Nebraska

    See all my reviews

    Comments about Alfred The Zen Of Screaming Dvd/Cd:

    About 90% of this dvd is for singing.... not screaming. The title is very misleading, because it focuses mostly on singing. But it provided very good exercises to help you improve your singing voice. As for screaming, I am gonna have to buy Part 2.
