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

  • "Nothing ever becomes real until it’s experienced”
    I truly spent the best 10 days of my life doing what I love the most, having the chance to meet amazing and extremely talented people from all around the world. I've learned that you need to show up as your highest self, that you glow different when you are actually happy and that you have something that no one has. I've never felt fully complete when I was on stage until this life changing experience. Learning from each one of the people in the program was gratifying. I can't describe how happy and grateful I am with every single person that became part of this journey and made me feel so unique, special and worth it.

  • 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.

  • I'm excited to meet the other passionate artists and mentors, to be able to grow, and transform through this experience! I truly believe this experience will allow me to make a big step in my career!
