"I just purchased the workshop and I already see so many improvements in my voice. Adanna is so amazing and explains everything in a fun way and with her witty sense of humor she makes the modules so much more enjoyable! I would highly recommend this course!"
"I have studied with several of the top online coaches out there and so far she is ticking all the boxes on what is needed to learn to sing from an online program. As a former choir director I appreciate the time she takes in marrying skill to application which I haven’t seen the other programs address. For example, teaching breathing (a skill) then assigning a song to practice breathing. I have not seen any program do this."
It's time to awaken the singing voice that you didn't know you could ever have.
I understand your frustrations.
Your voice cracks whenever you try to hit high notes, so you've convinced yourself that you just have a small vocal range and cannot change that.
You feel pain in your throat after only a few minutes of singing...even if the song isn't that challenging.
You know that you want to sing with more control & style, but you have no idea where to start or how to find a unique style that fits you.
Singing in your chest voice terrifies you, so you've convinced yourself that you cannot & will never do it well.
You try to sing with power, only to end up yelling and hurting your voice.
You know how to carry a tune, but you still don't find your voice all that exciting to listen to.
You want to get better at singing, but you don't know where to start.
"It's way too late in my life for me to become a great singer."
"No one can teach me how to get better...I should have been born with it."
"Everyone has a certain skill level they can reach, and after that, there's no getting better."
You're ready to become a better singer...but you can't seem to get these thoughts out of your mind.
Just imagine what it would be like to....
Go to an open mic night with friends, step up to the stage, and singing your heart out with confidence, freedom, & grace.
Land that acting audition simply because your singing voice set you apart from the others.
Sing beautiful melodies over a congregation at your church, multiple songs at a time, every week, without losing your voice.
Sing on stage with your band & deliver an exceptional vocal performance all the way through your set, with confidence, & minus the vocal fatigue.
Create a beautiful moment serenading your family during the holidays.

my name is Adanna Duru
I'm a recording artist, vocal coach, & music producer. Awakened Vocals includes a series of vocal techniques that got me on Team Adam Levine on "The Voice" & the Top 10 of "American Idol!" I'm excited to let you in on my secrets.
Before Awakened Vocals

You dream of having a voice that people delight in listening to
Your voice cracks when you try to hit higher notes
You practice regularly, but don't see the results that you desire on your own
You often run out of breath when singing a phrase
You feel throat pain after only a few minutes of singing
After Awakened Vocals
You will have unlimited program access to information from a professional in the music industry
You will feel better prepared for singing auditions
Your vocal range will expand
You will dominate karaoke night
Singing for a long period of time won't be painful anymore
You will feel more confident to start playing local shows
You will feel more confident to sing in front of people

"I tried lessons with 2 other teachers and was starting to think voice training wasn't for me, then i was lucky to find Adanna! She has helped me to expand my range, refine technique, play with dynamics, and feel more confident in my voice more than I ever thought was possible. And her style is so fun and natural - it brings out my true voice and keeps me coming back!"
"At first, I was a bit concerned about her young age, but her accomplishments were impressive, so I decided to try her out. I've had 4 vocal coaches before Adanna. Each has their own strengths and differences. However, Adanna's vocal coaching is the most practical, right to the point, and the most helpful. She's been singing/performing all her life, so she has so much more experience than the majority of the vocal coaches, and music is naturally embedded in her, which makes the coaching session so much more fun. I think she is an excellent fit for those who want to make the singing for their career, but because of her personality (she's so positive and full of warmth and love), anyone who wants to learn singing will also gain much benefit. It's hard to find a non-classical vocal coach, let alone great one...and Adanna is definitely one of the greatest."
"Adanna is an exceptional vocal coach and teacher. She really listens to your needs and helps you work towards your goals. In just one session, I had several breakthroughs to help with my voice. Her process of identifying and correcting bad habits to achieve better singing has been fundamental in my process.
And if you haven't seen her live, she's AMAZING! . What a natural on stage with a breathtaking voice. So happy to have her guiding me through my journey."
Awakened Vocals includes 8 step-by-step lessons. Here's what you'll learn.
Lesson 1: Breathing
This lesson details how to breathe with proper technique when singing. This is the foundation; this lesson will make your voice sound smoother & more powerful.
Lesson 2: Pitch
I will help you through how to approach singing on pitch.
Lesson 3: Breath Support
In this lesson, you will be amazed at how powerfully you can actually sing. I will take you through how to use the correct muscles to support those harder-to-reach notes.
Lesson 4: Power
Singing with power is intimidating, but I make it simple here. You will learn how to sing with power without straining or feeling any pain.
Lesson 5: Belting
Belting is terrifying for many people! But it does not have to be. I will break it down for you in a way that won't scare you off. You will be amazed at your new belting abilities.
Lesson 6: Tone & Style
Many people use all the incorrect muscles in an effort to sing with style, but they end up sounding inauthentic & unoriginal. I will walk you through how to not only find your natural tone, but how to sing with style in a healthy way.
Lesson 7: Vibrato
I will help you develop your vibrato.
Lesson 8: Mixed Voice
I will show you how to find your mixed voice.
"Such a wonderful and thoughtful teacher! I am a beginner level singer and she is very patient with my mistakes. The way she teaches is seriously not like any other singing teacher, sooo worth it. If you are on the fence, I definitely recommend trying it."
"Let me just say... she is fantastic!!!!! Worth every penny. I can't sing. Never could. But now I'm learning to really understand that anything is possible. She knows how to teach. You will feel like you're in good hands from the moment you meet her."
YOU CAN DO THE COURSE FROM HOME, FROM ANYWHERE IN THE WORLD, AND ON YOUR SCHEDULE.
You can complete the course lessons from the comfort of your couch or kitchen table, as long as you have internet connection! The entire program is completely digital so you can access it from anywhere through our private course portal. And you'll never miss a beat: you can go at your own pace and do the lessons on your schedule.
HOW LONG DOES IT TAKE TO "AWAKEN MY VOICE?"
The honest answer is, it depends on you and your current situation. Everyone is different.
There is no rush and no right or wrong amount of time, because you have lifetime access to the program! Remember, this isn't a "quick fix" by any means.
However, I recommend that you spend a minimum of 5 hours in each module. Spending 1 hour a day for 5 days a week per module will yield you the best results. Singing is all about muscle memory...so you don't want to rush through this course.
There has never been a better time to start your vocal journey.
If you wait, you’ll be in the same place you are now. 6 months from now, you’ll wish you had started today!
How do I know if I am ready to start Awakened Vocals?
Awakened Vocals is for you if :
you know how to carry a tune but wish to do more
you want to fix unhealthy habits in your vocal technique
you have tried vocal lessons before, and it didn't work out for you
If you want to do vocal lessons, but are frequently on the go and need access anytime, anywhere.
you are already somewhat skilled in singing, but want to take your voice to the next level
you have always dreamed of expanding your capabilities
Awakened Vocals is NOT for you if:
you are looking to develop an operatic, classical, or choral vocal style
you are not ready to commit to practicing on a regular basis...BUT I believe you can do this with organization, time and effort given on your part!
you are not open to learning new skills in a new & creative way
You have wanted to sing better for so long.
Why talk yourself out of awakening your voice?
You have two choices here.
You can continue doing what you were doing before; practicing tirelessly & not seeing the results you desire
You can work with an industry professional & gain unlimited access to step by step exercises that walk you through how to sing with proper breath support, how to sing those harder-to-reach notes, how to eliminate pain in your throat when you sing, and so much more!
"I can just take free singing lessons on youtube"
free lessons on youtube won’t give you a wholistic approach to growing & improving your voice. youtube videos will only give you bits and pieces of what you’re really looking for. Awakened Vocals is designed to improve every part of your singing voice, with exercises that all work together for the good of those taking the course! unlike 5-10 minute youtube videos here & there, this is an entire course that is made specifically for you to succeed & grow.
"I'm not confident enough"
Confidence comes from fear, and fear comes from the unknown. This course instills muscle memory and repetition. So the more you practice, the more familiar and comfortable you will feel as you go through the lessons. Again, this course is entirely self study. So you won't experience the occasional awkwardness of practicing in front of a live coach.
"Online vocal lessons won't work for me"
This course includes 29 audio exercises that I use on my private clients in every lesson we have together. These exercises are universal, and you will be surprised at how specific & detailed they are for you.
"Adanna is truly a gifted vocal teacher. She is fun, energetic and really knows how to draw the best out of her students. My daughter has been with 2 different vocal teachers over the years, but after 2 lessons with Adanna, she has gone from insecure and singing only in her room, to confident and singing in front of all sorts of people! I was honestly shocked at how much my daughter has grown vocally and in her confidence in that short time. We're so happy to have found Adanna and would recommend her, without reservation, to anyone who wanted to improve their vocals, confidence and performing."
"Honestly, I am blown away by my ability that I never knew I had. She is so encouraging and genuinely a positive, caring person. She's a true teacher, generous with her knowledge, and very explicit with teaching something that seems intuitive but so complex. I never thought I'd intellectually understand the mechanics of the voice, AND internalize it, since learning a feeling is hard to teach."
This is a steal.
By learning through an online program, you are getting all the benefits of private lessons without the huge price tag.
Hiring a GOOD private vocal coach will cost you around $75/hr...if you're lucky!
Even if your coach is great, you won't have unlimited access to ALL their course material... you'd be paying by the hour.
3 months worth of private lessons (one hour a week) can easily add up to $1,000...and as soon as you discontinue lessons, you won't have any access to that knowledge anymore.
I am giving you unlimited access to information that I give all my private clients.
All for under $400.

I am a Pop/R&B indie recording artist, vocal & songwriting coach, vocal producer, songwriter, and music producer. In 2012, I made it onto Team Adam Levine on Season 3 of "The Voice" at the age of 15. Soon after, I landed a spot in the Top 10 on Season 14 of "American Idol" in 2015.
My music has been featured in many publications including Buzzfeed, LA Weekly, & The Fader. Most recently, I wrote & sang the song for Paul Mitchell’s 40th anniversary “Decades of Hair” campaign on Tik Tok. The campaign accumulated over 3 billion views in just a few days.
I started coaching private lessons in 2013, and was amazed at how much fun I had watching dozens upon dozens of people transform their vocal capabilities under my guidance.
Awakened Vocals is your opportunity to learn my one of a kind secrets. You can do this from anywhere in the world. I am excited for your journey to begin.
