About Us

Celebrating over 20 years of artist education and development.

Welcome to VocalizeU

For over 20 years we ave been focused on artist education and development. This unique concept VocalizeU was pioneered by renowned vocal coach Dave Stroud. He created his vision of a well-rounded artist development and education company for beginning, emerging, and professional signers and songwriters.

With our yearly summer intensives in Los Angeles, CA, we’ve provided career changing music industry education for thousands of artists. Including full courses and masterclasses, celebrity guests, vocal experts, industry leaders help our artists determine their own path in their music career.

In 2019, after having been being involved with VU for 10 years, industry pros Elliott O’Connor and Big Billy Clark teamed up to bring VocalizeU to a whole new level. Taking a fresh approach to the modernized music, streaming, and social media industries, they’re excited to add even more to what VU offers.

VocalizeU makes a difference in our members’ carrers and lives

  • VocalizeU was truly one of the best experiences I have ever had and ultimately helped me make the decision to move to LA to continue pursing my passion. I met some of the most amazing people there some of who ended up playing a major part in my musical journey. The classes you take & the people you meet are some of the most unforgettable things you’ll experience there.

  • I am truly looking forward to this year's VocalizeU. I can't wait to learn from the mentors and meet all kinds of talented people who love music as much as I do.

  • I started attending VocalizeU Artist Intensive when I was 16, I’m now 23, and a huge reason I am where I am today in my music journey is all thanks to VU.
    I remember before going my first year being extremely nervous, however I was blown away by the feeling of acceptance, and love. the friends i’ve made at VU will be friends for life and I talk to many of them still to this day and know that if I need anything I can reach out to any of them. The level of education, resources and relationships that are there right at your fingertips is surreal.
    I look forward to VU every year, it’s always the highlight of every year for me. I wouldn’t be who I am today in many aspects of my life without my experiences there. I’m SO beyond grateful for the opportunity i’ve had to go, and the life long friends i’ve made.
    Invest in yourself, and believe in yourself, VU can help make a lot of your dreams possible.
