"Strength and clarity in their voice and a relaxed, natural delivery. That's the signature of a recording artist who has trained with voice coach, Judy Rodman. I work with recording artists staging their tours and coaching their live performance and believe me, there is a huge difference between singing a song and being a singer. Judy is that difference. It is more than her wealth of knowledge about how the voice works, it is her unique ability to reach inside an artist and bring out talent beyond technique. "
- Diane Kimbrough, Live Performance Coach

Who Judy Teaches

People from all over the United States come to Judy for vocal lessons. including recording artists & entertainers wanting to protect their instruments and take their vocal ability up a level, songwriters wanting to sing better so they can write better melodies, musical theater and advanced classical vocalists desiring more contemporary style. Beginners take lessons for vocal assessment and find voices they never knew they had. Managers, talent agents, producers, and studio engineers regularly send their clients to Judy for vocal lessons before recording their final vocals or sending them on the road.

I just finished a show in Chicago and it went amazing. My voice is feeling stronger than ever, and thats after almost 40 shows in the last month and a half. Judy Rodman's vocal techniques have changed my life.
-Mat Kearney, Aware/Inpop Records recording artist

What Students Learn

Judy teaches proven techniques for breath, open throat, and communication skills. "Master all three areas, which affect each other, " proclaims Ms. Rodman, "and you maximize your vocal potential. "

* Power
Judy’s students learn to draw controlled vocal power from a feeling of compression centered in the pelvic floor. This is a much lower center than most people sing from, and keeps the singer from squeezing at the diaphragm level of the ribs, minimizing 'overblowing' the vocal cords, limited vocal range and lack of control of pitch and tone.

* Path
Judy’s students learn the magic of "pulling" instead of "pushing" words. Pulling words from a hook-shaped "Vocal Path" (a concept developed by vocal coach Jeffrey Allen) results in a flexible, open throat, enabling great vocal control and register blend without vocal cracks and strain.

* Performance
Judy's physical and psychological approaches to performance coaching are informed by her own extensive performance experience. She knows first-hand what it takes to give unforgettable performances during national network TV appearances & interviews. Her live shows rocked venues from clubs, auditoriums and county fairs to the stadium arenas, enabling her to teach voice with practical application to large stages. She is also understands how to give impact in a small setting such as a house concert or "writer's night". She teaches choirs and musical theater vocalists to perform with precision, articulation, and communication.

Judy has developed ways to alleviate excessive anxiety, yet preserve the spark of excitement in the performance. She specializes in helping a singer "get real" within the song, much like a great actor getting into character.

Judy Rodman is the best vocal instructor for beginners and/or advanced vocalists that I feel music has to offer. With my years and my ears of experience in Christian music, I base this statement on one simple word: RESULTS! And, after all, isn’t that what we’re listening for?
- Ronny Hinson, of the original Hinsons

Your First Vocal Lesson

During the first lesson, Judy will assess your voice and begin immediately improving your most challenging areas of vocal weakness. You will discover how to overcome voice breaks and cracks and sing in a powerful blend without vocal cord strain, jaw or throat tension. Pitch, diction, control and breathing problems are also covered. You will learn to expand your vocal range and improve tone quality, overcome stage fright, and effectively connect with an audience.

Hi Judy, I want to thank you for the "most effective voice lesson" I have ever had. When I went back to the studio my producer was amazed at the confidence level I approached while recording. Your visualizations about opening my air pathways made a remarkable difference. In fact, my producer said he may call you for a lesson! “
Celeste Zepponi, Christian music artist

Healing Voices with Problems

Judy's deep understanding of the pain and fear associated with vocal dysfunction also comes from her own personal experiences. In the middle of her career she overcame a myriad of vocal challenges, greatly aided by her classical college training and Nashville's legendary professional vocal coach Gerald Arthur.

Judy has retrained singers with partial vocal cord paralysis, chronic raspiness, and with a history of nodes to sing with no strain or pain. She excels in correcting problems with pitch (even with those who’ve been told they were tone-deaf) , breathing (even problems involving strange diaphragmatic spasms) , diction (even in those who never had good diction) , tone (enriching even the thinnest, strained voices) and a broad spectrum of other vocal challenges and impairments.

Without Judy Rodman's "Power, Path and Performance I would have continued down a path of bad vocal habits that may have led to more vocal strain and maybe even severe damage. I'm grateful for this vocal technique method because with it I now have the confidence to conquer any live performance or studio session. I highly recommend it!
- Bryan White, multiple-platinum album recording artist

Styles Taught

Judy specializes in all contemporary vocal genres. When she is teaching style, Judy guides each student into his or her own heart. For instance, she helped classically trained singer Stephanie Adlington develop an alternative rock sound; she helped rap artist Mat Kearney develop a great singing voice, resulting in a hit career - signed simultaneously with both Christian and pop record labels. She helps her clients experiment with different styles, giving them feedback on what style is working best for their voices. She always coaches clients into their own uniqueness and authenticity, whatever style is chosen.

Years ago, I was a vocal instructor's ultimate challenge. Not only would I eventually pursue public speaking as well as singing, but I was also battling a life-threatening eating disorder. I was lost in my disease and could not connect to my body or emotions. With Judy Rodman and her "Power, Path and Performance" vocal technique, I found my voice. Today I speak and sing nationwide - communicating from my heart and with my true voice.
-Jenni Schaefer, Singer, Songwriter, Speaker, and Author of Life Without Ed: How One Woman Declared Independence From Her Eating Disorder and How You Can Too

Recording Services

Whether you are an experienced pro or you are new to the studio, you will need some team members for your project. Depending on your budget and the size and type of your project, your recording team may include some or all of the following: an executive producer who takes care of financial and logistical aspects, a main producer, a vocal producer, recording engineer (s) , musicians and background vocalists. Sometimes a team member wears multiple hats.

Judy offers the following services: Vocal producer, track producer, background vocals and arrangements. She also offers original songs and co-writing for projects on a limited basis.
Vocal Producer

Vocal production is a specialty field of expertise. If you are a producer, you may wish to consider including a vocal producer in your budget who can greatly increase the quality of your client’s final vocals, resulting in greater client satisfaction and possibilities for commercial success.

Note to producers:
Here are the facts about our crazy business right now:

1. Because of the current economic situation, recording budgets from low end demos to the major label projects are being squeezed, making it more important than ever that every cent is wisely planned -- and necessary-- for the quality of the final product.
2. To be viable in the marketplace, the quality of the final vocal has to be better than ever, because most professional singers are now trained and vocal ability is higher than it’s ever been on radio and stage.

As a part of your production team, here’s how I can help you:

1. I can coach your client into the best vocal he or she is capable of -- most often, even better. Instead of listening to the mix, wishing they could do the vocal over, they actually find themselves growing to be able to match the quality of the recording! This is huge for your client’s satisfaction.
2. Keep you on budget. One of the most elusive variables of a production budget is the time it takes to get the lead vocal. I can help your client get a great vocal within an average of 1 to 2 hours. This is most often less time than it used to take to get a mediocre vocal.
3. Your client’s voice will feel better! A great sound comes from resonation, not excessive pressure. I know how to coach your singer to give a powerful performance that will not strain their instrument.
4. I can help your veteran stage performers and your artists who normally sing while simultaneously playing instruments get that live magic in the studio.

The hundreds of vocal clients I’ve worked with have included Pam Tillis, Bryan White, Mat Kearney, Jamie Lynn Spears, Craig Anderson (Heartland) , Taylor Ware, Coury Palermo (Lynden band) . Industry people who have referred clients to me for voice training have included Lou Taylor and Jamie Nehasil at TriStar Sports & Entertainment, Steve Wariner, Tom Paden, Radney Foster, George Clinton, Dick McVey, Michael Moore (music marketing/promotion guru) , Thom Flora, Elaine Ganick of Ganick Communications and Ron Oates. More credits and testimonials are available at my website www. judyrodman. com.

Note to Recording Artists:
Why hiring a vocal producer is important:

* Too often, most of the time, money and creative energy available is put into the instrumental tracks of a recording project. Then, almost as an afterthought, the vocal is quickly recorded. Let’s face it: in this competitive marketplace it takes a great vocal to sell an artist and/or a song.
* Sometimes a veteran performing artist needs help getting vocals in the studio like they do in live performance.
* It’s easy to hit the talkback button in the control room and tell a singer "give it more passion on this pass", "you’re out of tune", "your voice is sounding thin and weak", "I don’t believe you yet", etc. The poor singer can be left emotionally, physically and vocally exhausted and experience a loss of confidence. It takes a vocal producer to tell you how to fix problems and get a singer's best on tape.
* A vocal producer can help even a modestly talented singer get amazingly effective vocals in the studio. and can help a great vocalist maximize studio vocals for commercial hit potential.
* Simply put, you need a vocal producer when you need to have your best vocal performance recorded. Even pro recording artists need trustable feedback from the control room. The only time you don’t need one is when another recording team member is also a vocal producer/coach as well. and this is rare.

I have never walked out of a studio happier than the day that Judy was there to produce! I never knew I had the emotions in me that she brought out. My voice had a maturity and confidence level like never before. One thing I advise everyone to never do: Go in the studio without Judy Rodman!
–Jordyn Mallory, country artist

Judy Rodman’s Vocal Production Experience

Judy has been producing solo and group studio vocals for decades on commercials and background vocals, demos and masters- including huge radio hits. She produced some of the finest session singers in Nashville on karaoke projects of many genres, including rock, r&b, classic pop, classic and contemporary country, southern and contemporary Christian. She produced vocals on hundreds of songs in her various catalogs at RCA, Warner Chappell, Chrysalis and MCA. She has produced vocals on new artists in genres including celtic/Christian, alternative rock, pop and country. She is often hired to produce vocals by other producers, managers & engineers.

“I have been a producer in Nashville for over 22 years. Many years ago I was getting frustrated about how the vocals would end up on the artists I was producing. After the project was finished, the artists would tell me that they could have done a better job on their vocals. They would all tell me that they could sing better than what we had recorded and were disappointed in their vocals. That’s when I called my friend, Judy Rodman. I now have Judy produce the vocals on every artist that I take into the studio. She knows how to bring out and get the best in every artist. I have seen her work, and it’s amazing what she does. Every artist I’ve produced has told me that they will never do another project without her there in the studio.
Besides being the top vocal producer in town, she is the sweetest person that you’ll ever meet. She is well respected and loved by many in this town for her talent and generosity. If you want to compete on a major scale and end up with the best vocals you’ve ever had, then I would hire Judy Rodman on your next project.

As a professional speaker it is very important that I have the ability to communicate my message in the most effective way possible. It is critical that I have the stamina to speak with strength and clarity in an all day training session. As a singer, it is important to have the ability to sing for hours while still maintaining my vocal strength. Judy has helped me accomplish all of this and so much more. After two sessions with Judy, there was a noticeable difference in the way I was speaking and in my performance. I have experienced other vocal coaches, and they were good in their own way, but Judy is the complete package. Her Power, Path, & Performance technique is the most effective method I have ever encountered. Whether you are looking to become a better speaker, enhance your performance abilities, or become a better vocalist, you are sure to get everything you need when working with Judy Rodman.

  • Quick results! Legitimate confidence booster! Amazing diagnosis and tx for your vocal challenge
  • none

Judy Rodman is magic! One or two lessons yield more results than a year or two with most vocal instructors. This is not the usual scales and singing. Be ready for a unique and mind blowing experience. It is best to just trust Judy from the start because she will diagnose and target your troubles almost instantaneously and then go to work helping you solve them. I have watched her do this in seminars on the spot and her approach is always unique to the individual. Judy will gently suggest one "fix" and if that is not quickly communicating to you what it is you need to do, she will have another or another 5 or 20 or whatever it takes. This is a very personal journey but Judy is so encouraging and supportive and makes the journey with you, and in the end, you not only feel confident and able, but you also share in the joy that you know Judy, herself feels for your accomplishment. Yeah, it's kind of spiritual and fun. I have also had the pleasure of being with Judy in the studio and watching her work with a variety of talents and experience and I can truly say the final product is always close to personal best - a level previously thought unachievable before the experience. Warning - you may leave this experience physically exhausted, but the joy of listening to yourself at that recording will be the sweet payback forever more. I would not think of wasting the cost of recording without Judy at my side! Oh, and by the way - she's still got it, only better than ever. It's a treat to see a Judy Rodman Performance!!!
