For thirty years Dr. Robison has been refining the art of vocal instruction in groups. He and his BYU colleagues have found that beautiful singing develops on the average three times faster and is more permanent when students can observe the required physical principles growing simultaneously in the voices of their peers.

Experiencing Clayne's insistent, "gentle drill sergeant" style the students have affectionately named these group sessions Vocal Beauty Boot Camp.

To learn more about the Boot Camp experience, read chapter 11 in Clayne's book. The chapter is quoted in its entirety on this web site.

The typical growth of Boot Camp participants can be seen and heard in a 25-minute demonstration video: "10-Fold Teacher Improvement in Efficiency Through Vocal Beauty Boot Camp," which can be ordered or downloaded from this web site.

Here are typical responses from participants:

Boot Camp students:
". . .Rigorous and rewarding."

"The only thing that hasn't changed is the excitement that I get every time I sing."

". . . contagious passion for the voice! Good drill sergeant too!"

"I wish I had had a class like this before I started."
