How to Create the Next Generation of Singers through Private Tuition for Schools, Revealed in New Book

Over the years, I have given private vocal coaching to pupils from the International  School Of Tanganyika in Dar es salaam as an extracurricular activity. But what this has made me realize is that, there are a lot of parents out there that want to put their potentially talented kids into private tuition to learn to sing, something most schools do not provide. 

And if I’m honest, even if they did, if you really want to learn to sing the only way to get true results is to work with a vocal coach one-on-one. And I can’t see that happening in a classroom setting, with loads of other pupils attending the same lesson. Voice lessons require individual attention. After all, you are training both your ear and your voice.

If everybody is training inside the same room all at the same time, something is bound to go amiss. I expound a lot more on this in my new book 101 Letters from a Vocal Coach now available in paperback from Amazon, Barnes & Noble and Lulu.

2018 Voice Assessments, Private Lessons, Books & CDs Repackaged

The way I deliver voice training has evolved over the years. It had to.  What with the advancement in technology plus a host of other elements, I have over the past 8 years, revised and refined my training modules consistently. Sometimes I wonder how I do it.

Today I want to introduce a new voice training package that has you come away with a voice assessment training session and consultation for an hour; a copy of my new book 101 Letters from a Vocal Coach; voice training CD Learn to Sing with Joett Booster Program; Joett Vocal Drills Vol. 1-7 in MP3; and what’s more, I will record segments of your session with me (delivered to your Inbox) which you can then use for home-learning.

This new introductory program now sets a new standard to the study of voice that I provide, as it offers those in pursuit of the craft but with limited funds, an opportunity to work with me for an hour and come away with the tools of the trade for practicing at home.

For more information and to book your place, simply get in touch with me. I'm also accepting inquiries from around Africa as part of my Across Africa Tour 2018.


You’ll find tons of helpful tips and articles for singers in my new book 101 Letters from a Vocal Coach, now available in paperback from Amazon, Barnes & Noble and Lulu.

How to Sing Effortlessly in Praise & Worship, Revealed In New Book


I consider myself extremely privileged to have had the opportunity to train so many people from churches and choirs over the years as my way of giving back to the Lord, and it has struck me rather suddenly—as if by revelation from the Lord himself—that my new book 101 Letters from a Vocal Coach couldn’t have come at a better time, and that I should be directing most of my effort and resources to make this book available to churches and choirs around the world.
"Your talent is God's gift to you. What you do with it is your gift back to God." -- Leo Buscaglia
What probably triggered me to think in this direction so suddenly was when I read a review of my book on my Lulu sales page where Claudia Blanton writes:

“101 Letters From A Vocal Coach is a very insightful, charming and entertaining collection of articles, and tidbits, packaged in a warm and heartfelt way. It does not matter if you are professional singer, a part of a choir, or just sing for fun - like I do - you will find something that will strike you as transformational. The study of voice is a lot more complicated than it might seem from the outside, but reading this collection gives you quite a deep view into the techniques, and training required to bring your voice to its full potential. I also loved the linked audio and video content, which gave this book even more depth, and made it a truly useful and practical resource. “ -- Claudia Blanton 


What this particular reader had to say resonates resoundingly with the plight of many who want to learn to sing to praise the Lord. In my interaction with singers from churches and choirs, I have encountered complaints many a time in connection with the pain and strain to the voice that afflicts those who spend many hours on end singing in church. My book address all of these common issues and shows you how to quickly remedy your situation.

In my new book 101 Letters from a Vocal Coach, you’ll not only find tons of helpful tips and articles for singers, you'll also receive breathing and vocal warm-up exercises delivered directly to your inbox.

3 Simple Steps to Purchasing Online, the Book "101 Letters from a Vocal Coach" in Paperback from Africa

I know this will bring up some concerns regarding geographic purchasing restrictions as is common with Amazon and perhaps even Barnes & Noble, although I’m not too sure of the latter. What generally happens, when you’re based in an African country like Tanzania, you cannot purchase anything from Amazon because Tanzania is barred. Plain and simple!

If I need something from Amazon, I would ask my brother in the US to make the purchase for me and then he’ll mail it down to me. End of story.

Now, about my book 101 Letters from a Vocal Coach, the book is on sale on Lulu. This bookstore does not impose such geographic restriction. You can buy from pretty much anywhere across the globe.  And here’s how to go about making your purchase.

Lulu will accept payment by Mastercard, Visa and other major debit/credit cards. If you hold any of those plastics, providing they’re enabled for the internet (check with your bank), you can make your purchase for the book with no problem at all.

And if you'll want to use the PayPal payment option, again, all you need is a debit or credit card to set up a PayPal account if you don't already have one.

However, because they’ll be mailing a physical product—the book in paperback—by regular post, you’ll need to enter a post office box address when you place your order; or in the case where the postman delivers to your door in your country, you’ll enter your physical address.

I hope this helps you purchase my brand new book 101 Letters from a Vocal Coach with relative ease from Africa, so you too can go and enjoy tons of helpful tips and articles for singers.

Diary of a Vocal Coach: A Quick Reflection on the Essence of Teaching

unsplash-logoTra Nguyen
I’m sure you will have noticed that around the world, the most underpaid and quickly forgotten professionals are teachers.

Gosh, I don’t know how that just came out like that. Just speaking my thoughts, I suppose. But in all honesty, it is the truth.

And so, you don’t become a teacher to get rich. You do it because you want to help other people achieve their dreams. You forget about your own dreams and focus more on 'giving' and empowering others. Writing a book as I did, and recording audio training modules is all part of a tutor's quest to help more and more people--even those you never get to meet personally, get ahead. So really, teaching is about giving and not expecting anything in return. We don’t do this for personal gain. There is nothing to gain but good karma. That is my opinion anyway.

My dad was a teacher in the early years, and so was my aunt. My uncle has been a university professor all his life. My sister did teach for a number of years. And so I come from a family of teachers and I love what I do. For me, it's so natural. I don't have to even try. It’s gotta be in the genes.
