"Since the Summer Intensive last year I have grown so much as an artist. People really noticed it too when I performed at my EP Launch 2 weeks ago! The connection with the audience the letting go and just being in the moment! Honestly what you have created is so amazing so helpful so inspiring even long after the event!"
"The VU intensive is exactly that, intense, in all ways. The support, encouragement and inspiration taught me so much about who I am, what my authentic artistic goals are and that with faith, an open heart and mind any and all is possible!"
"The VocalizeU Summer Artist Intensive was a game-changer for me. I was thrown in to this with all of these other driven, hard-working artists and found myself being challenged like never before. The fact that I was surrounded by people who were doing the same thing I was, motivated me to be better and work harder. I made life-long friends, met insanely talented and plugged-in industry insiders, and came away with an experience that instigated growth & changed my life for the better."
"The summer intensive was one of the most incredible experiences and was truly life changing. Not only did I learn so much from the excellent teachers, but I was able to surround myself with supportive, talented friends who I still consider some of my best friends. The connections, the growth, and the support makes VocalizeU one of a kind."
“VocalizeU Artist Intensive is the one place where you get to share life experiences with amazing talented people from all over the world while learning from some of the top music industry leaders who will push you towards becoming the artist you never thought you could become”
"VU has given me the platform to not only hone my craft but also be the authentic artist that I am."
"I went to the summer retreat not knowing a single person, and being literally across the United States from where I lived, but I left knowing pretty much every person that attended. Everyone apart of VocalizeU is so talented and we all share similar dreams, VocalizeU gives us a way to achieve them."
"Inspiring others at the VocalizeU Artist Intensive is something I look forward to every year. I love watching students have not only vocal breakthroughs, but personal breakthroughs and see them achieve their dreams on the big stage setting the stage for bigger things in their career. VUAI is for people who want big growth in their skill and artistry."
"The VU summer intensive not only gave me the opportunity to work on my skills and artistry, but it also gave me inspiration and courage to break the limits I had put on myself."
"The VocalizeU Summer Intensive is the VERY best vocal camp/artist training program in the world. You will make real and lasting connections with some of the top people in the music industry. I have seen first hand the tremendous impact it has made on my students who have attended. I highly recommend this to all vocalists and voice instructors."
As a seasoned performer, with 25 years of singing under my belt, I found this program to be an enriching experience filled with education, inspiration and camaraderie. The private instruction, Backing Vocals, Management and Songwriting classes were fantastic and the Open Mic performances and "Late Night" jam sessions were truly enchanting and invigorating! Additionally, hearing others sing while between classes lent a feeling of safety and security I've rarely experienced elsewhere. All in all, I highly recommend that anyone interested in singing, be it amateur or seasoned pro, attend this event to have a truly life changing experience. See you there!
"Not only do you get to learn from the best vocal coaches, but you will also have the unique opportunity to meet many very talented and aspiring singers. The friendship and emulation amongst all of us pushed us to keep improving as singers and as performers. Years after the program we are still encouraging, supporting and motivating each other!"
"The summer intensive is the most unique and exciting event for singers that I've been to. The schedule is packed, and every class is with a teacher or mentor who has serious credentials in the industry... and they're willing to just pour it out to help you! It's literally another world for a week, and it's impossible not to come away without being insanely inspired and educated."
"The VocalizeU Artist Intensive has given me the opportunity to truly learn from the masters by working with the entertainment industry's most in demand professionals. I have lifelong friends from VUAU and have developed greater confidence in myself and an even stronger passion for music than I ever thought possible."
