Celebrity Vocal Coach Shows You the “Missing Link” on How to Expand Your Range, Perfect Pitch Accuracy, & Belt With Power In a Matter of Weeks…Whether You’re New or Consider Yourself An Expert.
Discover how you can stop singing flat, belt louder, and find your unique voice in as little as 8 weeks…
You Don’t Have To Be Born A Singer To Be One.
Here’s a secret…
You don’t HAVE to be born a singer in order to be one.
Because singing is 90% mental, and only 10% talent.
I know that might be hard to believe, and I’ll explain why in a moment. But first let me know if this sounds familiar…
- Are you too nervous or scared to sing loudly in case someone hears you?
- Do you get anxious your voice will crack during a performance?
- Have you ever wondered if your friends and family only smile and clap because they’re trying to be nice?
- Or do you outright feel discouraged and don’t sing as much as you used to (or at all)?
Those are some of the most common doubts I hear after having taught thousands of students over the decades.
But it’s important to remember what those are – doubts.
So Many Singers Get Told By Family, Friends Or Teachers They Can’t Sing.
See, many singers get told by their family, friends or teachers that they can’t sing.
You’re told to get real, or that you’re not born a singer, and that singing as a future in whatever shape or form, just isn’t realistic. You’re told to do something else.
This leaves a lot of singers feeling inadequate and voiceless. Why? Because of OTHER people’s doubts. And that’s not fair.
Because the reality is, these are THEIR doubts.
They don’t have to be yours.
Hi, I’m Tara Simon. I’m a Celebrity Vocal Coach, an X Factor Finalist, YouTube Creator and award-winning singer-songwriter Broadway star.
And I want to show you how you can:
- Stop singing flat and start hitting notes smoothly and accurately

All it takes is 30 minutes a day over 8 weeks with me, where I will be your vocal coach every step of the way.

Singing is 90% Mental, And Only 10% Talent
Singing Is 90% Mental, And Only 10% Talent.
Most instructors cover the physical basis of proper vocal production. But to become a better singer you MUST also nurture and train the emotions behind your voice. These emotions and self belief are so vital in the production of a consistently beautiful voice.
The reality is you can’t succeed without both of these components…
I’m proud to introduce you to:
SING SMARTER NOT HARDER
Sing Smarter Not Harder is an 8 week vocal program where I show you step by step how to sing smoothly, powerfully and confidently. You get to become a better singer in just 30 minutes a day (That’s just an episode of Netflix per day!).
It doesn’t matter if you’re a new singer or consider yourself experienced. If you’re looking to fulfill your singing dreams by becoming a better singer…
If you’re looking to stop singing flat, start belting with power and feel confident on stage…
This course is tailored exactly for singers like you.
Just take a look at what some of my past students have to say:
The reality is not everyone can afford private lessons. And that shouldn’t be the reason why some singers go on to finding their unique voice and fulfilling their dreams…
While others have a harder time doing the same.
It’s how Sing Smarter Not Harder was born. And why it isn’t priced nowhere near as a private lesson would be.
You have two choices here. You can continue on the path you’re currently on, not knowing if you’re on pitch or what register you’re singing in…
And continue struggling to hit the notes you KNOW you can sing…
Or you can get rid of the doubt. You can feel confident every time you share your voice. Because you know you have the tools and the training to sing beautifully and powerfully.
YOU can fulfill your singing dreams.
So many people think you have to be born a singer to be one. That it’s strictly an innate, natural talent. But I’m here to tell you this isn’t the case. If anything it’s flat out wrong.
Singing is NOT something you’re born with. With the right training and belief it’s something anyone can learn, even if friends, family or teachers have told you otherwise.
You need someone that will nurture you, that will believe in you until the day you believe in yourself (because I guarantee you, that will happen!).
And I can show you how, every step of the way.
See you inside!
