Below are gear and gift recommendations, some from YouTube videos of mine. It’s meant to be educational, as well as a gift guide.

Whenever I release a new “Gifts for Singers” video, it will be added here. 

Use the Table of Contents to take you directly to categories of interest.


Table of Contents:

Know someone with singing aspirations?

Give the gift of singing greatness. Purchase either a 6- or 12-month Singer-Athlete online membership, which includes the 8-week Singer Starter Course, or a 6-month membership that includes six online lessons with me.

Members have access to a vast library of vocal workouts and members-only blog posts and video tutorials to build their skills and grow their knowledge for as long as they are members.

A coupon code will be sent directly to the recipient’s email address (or to you for forwarding later).

2. Newbie Singer Stage Gear:

Shure SM58 Mic.

Neumann KMS105 Mic.

Bose L1 PA (No built-in reverb, so you’d need something like the Mackie mixer below to add reverb. Also, to use this as a main speaker and monitor, you’d have to set it up behind you, so both you and the audience can hear it).

Bose S1.

Fender Passport Venue PA.

Fender Event (I didn’t discuss this one in the video. It’s a smaller version of the Venue. Also a solid unit. No phantom power) .

Behringer Europort PA.

Nady PM-200A Personal Monitor.
