Expression, Heart, Confidence and Control can be yours when you buy and use these advanced exercises. 

It is recommended that you complete Contemporary Vocalist, Vol 1, CDs #1 and #2, before starting Contemporary Vocalist, Vol 2. The MP3 version of the 4 CDs of Volume Two contain Jeannie Deva's personalized coaching plus a small booklet of written instructions and tips round out all you need to explore, discover and realize potential you may not even know you have.

"Jeannie Deva's method dispels vocal myths and has helped me sing at my best in my own style." - Harriet Schock, Grammy nominated, gold and platinum songwriter/recording artist.

In the friendly, supportive and personalized approach for which she is known, Jeannie Deva helps you achieve a fully expressive voice. Providing piano accompaniment and intuitive coaching tips, she keeps your vocalizing both fun and rewarding. Use these CDs in sequence or customize a practice routine to suit your needs. 


The exercises in Contemporary Vocalist Volume Two are intended to be used after a singer has developed specific skills addressed in Volume One. I published the first volume after many years of working with professionals and it is designed so that even experienced singers will benefit from working with it. If you have already practiced with Contemporary Vocalist Volume One, CDs 1 and 2, you can begin practicing with Volume 2, CD#1, "Eliminating the Break."

To achieve full results with Volume Two you need to already have achieved the following FIVE basics:

(1) You can easily maintain rib cage expansion, with a relaxed stomach.

(2) You can keep your jaw open and still about a 2-finger width as you sing the vocal exercises.

(3) You have become relatively comfortable with the exercises of Volume One, CDs 1 and 2.

(4) You can keep the tip of your tongue resting against the back fo your bottom teeth, with lips relaxed, as you sing the vocal exercises.

(5) You can sing staccato in the exercises of Volume One with ease and precision.


1. Eliminating the Break
Achieve a multi-octave, full sounding voice with no strain or break between registers. The exercises focus on developing the natural inner muscle movements necessary to eliminate register break. 

2. Precision and Flexibility
This CD stretches your range with exercises that work the speed, precision and muscle flexibility of your voice. The result is professional command over your voice without having to think about technique. 

3. Strength and Stamina 
How much demand do you place on your voice when you sing? Here are specific vocal exercises to give you the strength and stamina you need to sing long, hard and full throughout your range night after night, rehearsal after rehearsal after, without fear of blowout or having to cancel gigs. 

4. Riffs, Runs and Embellishments
Need work on your vocal embellishments? Want to stretch your creative ideas for greater expressiveness and versatility? This is a revolutionary approach to vocal exercising and development! Stylistic riffs and "improvisations" are set to music as if you are singing with a band. The vocal melodies work with a variety of musical styles and put your vocal development into immediate application. The music makes practicing fun and inspirational. This tape can be practiced with right away, before any other, however the riffs can be very challenging. 

If you find the routine of one CD too difficult, it usually means there are necessary vocal developments you have not fully achieved from one of the earlier CDs. Problems arise when a singer has not achieved the five basic foundation steps listed earlier. If this occurs, go back to the simpler exercises, even if it means returning to CD 1 "Breath and Control" from Volume One, for a week or more to practice for proficiency in these five basics. Then move forward through the Second CD of Volume One as you will find new levels of enhancement and exciting breakthroughs as you practice with your foundation better established.

Founder of Jeannie Deva® Voice Studios

In 1978 Jeannie founded The Voice Studio™ in Cambridge, Massachusetts. Word of her new method of training popular music singers spread quickly and soon she was training most of the top bands of the region. By 1989 she had created a training program to certify voice teachers in her method. In 1991, she and her manager moved her voice studios to the heart of the music community of Boston, changed the business name to Jeannie Deva Voice Studios and staffed it with eight Deva Method voice teachers. During the many years to follow, they serviced an international clientele coaching up to 100 singers weekly. 

In 2002 with the Boston school still running, Jeannie re-located to Los Angeles and established her private studio there. At that time a new corporate model was developed and all Deva Method teachers became licensed to open their own independently owned and operated Jeannie Deva Voice Studios in their local areas. Currently there are two Deva Method studios in the greater Boston area, along with one in Hollywood, North Hollywood and Sydney, Australia.
