FOR WORSHIP SINGERS
- What we do
- Free Vocal Bootcamps

Let's be honest.
Most churches have a general idea of the kind of singers we'd like to have on the platform.
What would it be like to discover that those singers were already in your seats?
Kim Snyder, proffessional singer, worship leader & creator of The Voice Club Method
One of my most unique opportunities was working with a friend as interim worship leaders. We helped churches transistioning between fulltime worship leaders, a time when many core volunteers stop serving.
One time we were called in to save the Easter service after over 200 of the churches key singers & musicians along with the Easter Musical books went missing with only two weeks to go.
It was like two weeks of speed-dating potential musicians. Much funnier now than at the time.
It was through times like those that I came to realize that many of the 'dream singers' we pray for already exist in our churches. But neither side even knows it.
I am still amazed at how many stories I hear from singers who long to serve through worship but never have. And I don't mean wanna-be singers.
These are singers that aren't even aware how close they are to becoming the powerful, confident singer they can be. They're usually the shy ones in a workshop who don't approach until almost everyone is gone.
Years ago I would've dismissed them as 'not leader material'. But now I know just how short the trip can be from 'too timid', 'too pitchy', 'too uncomfortable', 'too-ANYthing' to 'wait - WHAT?!'
And, honestly, the only thing standing between the 'before' and the 'after' is having the right kind of training.
It's the kind of 'no-brainer' training I'm still stunned doesn't exist outside of some super pricey 'I know a guy who knows a guy' kind of places your singers are never going to go.
And even if they did, they would never be given the basic information they need to unlock their voices in a way that they could understand. (That's how they can charge so much money.)
I know because I spent years on that journey. And since developing a 'simple white girl' method for myself to keep up with the demands of professional work I've gotten more and more frustrated that NO ONE is giving this information to singers who just want to WORSHIP.
That's why I created The Voice Club
And why we'll offer free vocal bootcamps to every church until I either get upgraded to the 'BIG' choir or get to every last one.
'Wanna-be' singers become powerful leaders.
Good singers become aMAZing.
And exhausted, edge-of-vocal-damaged LEADERS learn a whole new level of singing with EASE.
We empower singers with tools to excel
so they can focus on nothing but worshipping.
Our biggest mission is to empower singers in our churches and give them the tools to know HOW to worship with excellence.
That's why we created Vocal Bootcamp.
The Voice Club's Vocal Bootcamp is the wildest, funniest, most educational workshop you'll ever host.
We had Kim Snyder bring "The Vocal Bootcamp" to our church and we were, and still are, extremely pumped about the results!
Not only did we have a blast learning jaw dropping and paradigm shattering facts about vocals, but the "on the spot" vocal correction was both inspiring and encouraging.
As a Worship Director, I would implore others to bring her in so that vocalists can receive the training that they need to free them from vocal distraction and allow them to fully worship.

Vocal Bootcamp isn't just created for your worship team. It's designed for self-proclaimed 'non-singers' who love musical worship too.
It's a fast-paced, engaging walk through the biggest obstacles to singing better and how to get over them!
"How Does This Thing Work?"
We'll take a look at how your voice is created to make sound (and show you why NOT knowing this sets you up to sing worse)
"What's this Flappy thing for?"
See why misunderstanding between the food pipe and the windpipe can strangle your notes (and make you eat stupid stuff)
"I thought that was just for 'special people'."
Learn why 'natural born singers' sing that easily...and how YOU can too!
We'll guess exactly what you hate about your voice and why....and in the process, show you what's missing, as we outline our method for defining your voice type.
Understand WHY the things you've tried to sing better have been working against you (and how 'not alone' you really are)
LAST.....WE'LL PROVE IT TOGETHER!
With the help of the attendees, we'll guess our volunteers voice types. Then we'll all figure out what they need to sing better (and then we'll show them how to do it)
Learning how to hear what's wrong in someone else's voice is super powerful.
That's because we have to hear what we're learning outside of our own voice to really grasp it.
THEN we can identify those things in our own voices and start using the tips we'll give to start fixing them!
It's the fastest two hours of training you'll ever love!
Will you take questions afterwards?
We're happy to stay as long as anyone has questions. It's up to you when we close the doors.
Will you work with singers individually or work with our team?
If your singers would like some one on one training, we offer sessions at half price at Vocal Bootcamps. Single sessions are 30 minutes at half price ($30)
We have a Live Worship Team Makeover clinic that's perfect for your team vocalists. It's 2 hours focused on blending, the differences in lead singing vs background, dealing with tech on stage, overcoming stage fright, team dynamics, charting, and answering the unique questions your team may have. The cost for this clinic is $200.
What's the cost of the Vocal Bootcamp?
The Vocal Bootcamp Workshop is always free for churches and non-profits.
We travel within 100 miles of downtown Seattle at no charge. We request travel expenses for any workshops beyond that area.
If you'd like us to provide a bootcamp for your church, worship conference or group of churches, contact us here.
There is no more natural outflow of a life touched by God than to sing.
And there’s almost nothing I enjoy as much as joining my voice with those who hunger for God….except for helping other singers gain confidence, find their power and become incredible examples of authentic worship for their churches.
