"I love the feel and content of the Vocal Gym! Richard's teaching style translates so well to an online platform, with the same atmosphere of person-ability, grace, and excellence you'd expect from a private in-person lesson. And the exercise lab at the end of this course is KEY for people that get the basics, but want to stretch themselves further!"

"The Vocal Gym teaches and showcases more than just the standard vocal tips and guidelines! From personal experience, it touches on not only the technical and scientific aspects of singing, but has also made me realize that the condition of mind and body are so important as a singer. One of my favorite things about the 7 Dimensions of Singing is that it adapts and is applicable to any singing style, regardless of your genre, and focuses on working with your current skill set, and enhancing it to produce the sound you want efficiently! Richard is an articulate instructor, able to break down all there is to it, while creating a comfortable and pressure-free learning environment to grow further as a singer."

"In all my years of singing, presentations and radio, I’ve had the honor and pleasure of working with so many knowledgeable and well established vocal coaches that have taught me different strategies to maximize the potential of my voice, but it wasn’t until I came into contact with Throga that I truly understood the anatomy, functionality and execution of what our incredible vocal instrument can provide for us as speakers and singers! I would adamantly recommend this course to anyone who utilizes their voice as their principal means of income in a heartbeat! Thank you for this enlightening course... simply brilliant!"
- Manny Cabo (United States)
"As singers, sometimes we focus only on the way things sound. The Vocal Gym course teaches you WHY things sound the way they do, by teaching you what makes up your “voice”. I love how this program is not only very informative, but also interactive, to help grow your strengths and/or weaknesses as a singer!"
