What if you could sing any song with ease…
What if you were able to have full control over your voice and sing freely…
What if you had a voice that you could trust all the time…
...without worrying about voice cracks, tightness, or vocal fatigue?
Here's the problem...
This is WHY most singers don’t like the sound of their voice…
They spend so much time trying to replicate the sounds of other singers.
Sometimes they are able to create specific sounds that they hear, but they struggle to maintain these sounds in a consistent way.
Singing for these people becomes hard because they’re working against the natural biology of their own voice.
This takes all the joy out of singing and makes it HARDER to sing well. Singing shouldn't be this hard... and it doesn't have to be!
My name is James Bavolacco!
Hi! I'm James, and I founded Vocal Freedom for Singers because I want every singer to sing the songs that they love confidently and with ease. When I was studying voice in college, I felt so restricted with my voice. It felt like there was a “right way” and a “wrong way” to sing. No matter how much I practiced or how hard I worked, I was never happy with the way my voice sounded.
After walking away from a degree in vocal performance, I decided to take a different approach to singing and teaching. By embracing what makes the voice unique, I've created a teaching method that focuses on a singer’s strengths and works with the vocal instrument.
Through this method, I was able to book more performance gigs, share more singing videos online and feel more confident in my voice. That’s when I learned the secret of singing– Vocal freedom is about so much more than having great technique. It’s about trusting your voice enough to stop obsessing and start expressing.
With this in mind, I put together a program to teach my signature methodology to aspiring singers and it has helped my students sing the songs they love confidently. That is how "Vocal Freedom for Singers" was born!

It is my mission to help aspiring professional singers find their unique voice and sing in a reliable, sustainable way.
How Vocal Freedom for Singers works...
What makes singing so hard for most people is that they’ve developed bad habits, routines and beliefs that don’t serve them. These things cause vocal tension, and fatigue, while keeping you from achieving your vocal goals. Right from the start, we will address these behaviors from an objective point-of-view and create a personalized, evidence-based coaching plan to prepare you for singing success.
Step One: Unlearning The Past
We explore your voice by going back to basics. By creating sounds with a speech-like quality, we are able to build a foundation for your voice. This is what we call your chest voice. When you have a strong, consistent chest voice, you’re able to belt with power and ease.
Step Two: Building a Foundation
The majority of singers strain when singing the notes higher in their range. This will leave them feeling sore, tired and uninspired. In this phase, we’ll learn how to sing higher notes without straining, pushing or reaching for them.
Step Three: Easy High Notes
You'll learn how to blend different vocal registers (sections of your voice) together to have a connected voice. You’ll start to sing those higher notes with more power and have more options with your voice.
Step Four: Training Your Mixed Voice
In this stage, you’ll apply everything you’ve learned so far and focus on creating your unique vocal identity. You’ll craft a voice that you’re proud of and find trust in your instrument. By now, you’ll be more than ready to share your voice with the world and be the superstar you were meant to be. Singing will be more fun than ever, you superstar.
Step Five: Superstar Mode
Student Results and Videos
"I used to struggle with the fact that my voice didn’t sound as perfect as other professional singers, but I’ve come to realize that every voice is unique and mine is just as special. I believe my strengths as a singer would be my vibrato and my story-telling when I sing. I can easily change the emotion and impact that goes into a song.
Working with James has helped me become more confident in my voice. He’s pushed me to really dig deep into my vocal identity and make small decisions that could make a positive impact in my voice. His happy energy and reassurance helps keep a positive attitude when it comes to achieving my goals."
"I love the tone and agility of my voice. While taking singing lessons with James Bavolacco, I've learned how to fix my vocal troubles easily and have found it easier to apply what I’ve learned from him over time with 1:1 sessions.
I’ve also started to notice the positive things about my voice, like the tone and agility. Working with James Bavolacco helped me realize my vocal strengths and how to highlight those even more while also fixing issues I may have. I’ve had an overall positive experience working with him."
"I started taking voice lessons with James, recently, when my friend introduced me to him. I liked my voice, but I wanted a second opinion from a professional. I realized that I was seeing progress in my singing when I could sing higher notes than ever in my recordings easily.
James does a great job meeting me where I'm at and following my pace. I'm a stubborn learner, so new things take more time for me. I'm becoming a better songwriter and I can build so many cool harmonies now. James is very patient with me and his kindness and humor make lessons so much fun. I never feel judged. He's always got my back. Listen to my original demo of The Sleepers by clicking the video"
