Kim Rose Fairthorne – Former MAINZ Student

Dear future RVR students,

I have been having vocal lessons with Paule and I have noticed improvements right from the very first lesson.

I had previously gained a lot of bad habits from watching YouTube videos of vocal coaches, but, with no feedback I was unable to understand what I was doing wrong and why it was not working for me.

Prior to lessons with Paule, I could relate my singing to driving a manual car in the wrong gear. Not only did I not even know I was in the wrong gear, I was completely afraid of breakdowns and not wanting to go anywhere with it!  I was revving the heck out of my engine at the high end of the scale and bunny hopping and konking out at the low end of the scale.

Paule has shown me how to be in the right gear for every note, how to not run on empty while breathing and how to not overfill the tank. We are currently working on my confidence and performance and I am finally starting to feel like I have traded my old manual car in for a smooth running automatic, sleek and street worthy!

Paule has also given me expert advice on the musicality of my original songs. I would highly recommend Paule to anyone interested in improving their singing voice. 

Kind regards,

Kim Rose

When I embarked on this journey, I never expected the passion that was about to engulf me. When I first met Paule, I felt both at ease and excited by what he had to say about the power of the voice. This immediately grabbed my attention and from then on my focus.

Each lesson was fun and as time went became more intense (but in a fun way). Paule gives you the momentum to take the next step with encouragement and equally with the same passion you’ve invested in his unique “No BS” style of coaching.

Every week I progressed at a comfortable rate, often surprising myself and thus gaining more confidence. It’s a journey I’m still enjoying. Paule’s method is different and that’s exactly why the results blow your mind if you walk the talk each time you train with him.

Easy to understand and fun to be coached by. Absolutely rapt I’m learning to sing with this guy and so will you. No BS 🙂

Long story short. If I knew of Paule’s existence from day 1, I wouldn’t have gone anywhere else.  

Hey all, I really want to take the time to acknowledge Paule Enso and his Rapid Vocal Results Coaching Programme. If you’re considering vocal lessons from Paule, it’s important to understand my journey but also the journey you are considering embarking on. 

I’m 31 years old and been singing for about 5 years now. I wanted to sing since I was 18 but was laughed at when I first tried and unfortunately that shattered all my confidence until recently. I understand what it’s like to be scared to sing in front of family and friends. To have your voice lock up and your throat hurt. To have muffled sound and sing off pitch. To feel intimidated when someone else is listening, causing you to shake and squeak.  

I also now understand the rush from performing, to have someone lock eyes with you and almost cry because you made a connection with them in ways that perhaps something else quite hasn’t. I now understand and feel how powerful it is to have someone tell me how much I’ve improved or that I “Have a beautiful voice”. Things I never thought was possible. I now first-hand understand how rewarding that feels. 

My vocal experience ranges from 5 different vocal coaches, including one from musical study at University. 

Long story short. If I knew of Paule’s existence from day 1, I wouldn’t have gone anywhere else.  

With that said I do want to acknowledge the value from past coaches and lessons learned along the way as it all stacks up. It’s only from embarking on this vocal journey that I have a clear understanding and now can recognise and appreciate the level at which Paule teaches. When you first meet him, you can instantly tell he takes his profession and craft seriously. He is passionate about what he does, and he gives nothing but 100%. Paule Enso is Rapid Vocal Results. 

Paule has such a diverse understanding of music and a variety of skills that he is able to answer EVERY question I’ve thrown at him, in a way that is easy to understand and furthermore can prove his answers correct by actually demonstrating the answer through his own practical vocal ability. Paule and I connect very well. I hope he laughs at this but occasionally I get frustrated in lessons because our time together is so valuable that if I’m not understanding something well or picking it up as fast as I’d like, I get a bit impatient or really test him with questions and my opinions which he handles just fantastic and still manages to help me understand or challenge me in ways that I need until our next lesson together.

This is important because most vocal coaches I’ve had have not always been able to explain to me the purpose of their own exercises or instantly demonstrate their knowledge to me in a practical application that proves what they are saying. Most the time Paule makes me prove to myself what he’s saying which is usually a humourous/breakthrough/rapid vocal result moment.

Paule teaches in a more holistic way, in that he really connects with the emotional part of yourself and in turn, you connect emotionally with yourself too. This really helps deliver key concepts and learnings into bite sized, easy to digest pieces. He encourages you, builds you up all while being genuine and honest. He listens and understands what it is you want to achieve, then sets out to help you accomplish your goals. It’s so important to have this as a musician because we all have a story to tell, we all have something to share and we can’t create a genuine performance that leaves a lasting impact on the listener without giving the true representation of our emotions.  

Paule understands what vocal challenges you are having and why, he will advise how to overcome them usually improving on them instantly, though you do need to put in the hard work to practice between lessons.  

Because of his diverse music experience, his lessons not only incorporate vocal training but also interweave ear training and understanding of how chord progressions and songs are made. If you are an aspiring singer/songwriter, this is A BIG DEAL. Let me explain: 

I studied music and graduated a Certificate of Contemporary Music and Performance. Why?  

To become a great vocal performer and understand what it means to be a singer/songwriter and create my own music.  

Did this happen?  

Not really. University was great in that I got some hands-on band experience, learned music theory, built confidence and had the occasional vocal lesson. But to be blunt, it was a waste of 12 months and the money which would have been better spent learning elsewhere. 

Paule Enso is the best vocal coach I’ve had and that is a bold statement. I’m at a place in my life where I live and breathe music performance. I’m not prepared to settle for anything less than the best as I want results, and I want them now. If there’s one thing I’ve learned about singing is that anyone can do it, but it doesn’t happen overnight. You need to be ambitious, motivated, supported, consistent with practice, have a live performing outlet and ultimately the correct guidance every step of the way.  

Paule is not only my vocal coach, but he’s my mentor too, and after 8 months of weekly vocal lessons, he is a good friend of mine. 

To anyone seriously considering a vocal coach who will deliver results, Paule Enso has been the best that I’ve had to date and I’m overwhelmingly excited to see what the next few years has in store for my development. 

Thanks, Paule.

Mind Over Matter – Your competitive advantage

Introducing the RVR Mind Over Matter Programme

Are you serious about rapidly removing all physical and psychological barriers that can impact on your ability to reach your maximum potential?

The simplest definition of Hypnotherapy is: The combination of a state of trance (i.e. Hypnosis) with therapeutic suggestions which are designed to make changes to the thoughts, words and actions of a person. Usually the changes will be in behaviors, but may also be in attitudes and beliefs.

When your conscious mind believes one thing and your unconscious mind believes something completely different, there is a powerful disconnect that is created in your belief system which will seriously sabotage your efforts to develop new skill sets and achieve your most meaningful goals.

This programme uses guided, custom-designed hypnotic suggestions that are aimed at your subconscious brain. These hypnotic suggestions rapidly help you break old, unhealthy performance habits by forming powerful new neural pathways in the brain that support and encourage higher levels of performance and achievement.

This programme is a “must have” to help you avoid the pitfalls of self-sabotage and is ideal for any musician that is looking to supercharge their natural performance abilities from the inside out. It’s perfect for anyone who lacks the belief in themselves and wants to feel better and more confident about taking the big, courageous steps they need to achieve their career and performance goals.

Clients also use this programme to achieve successful results when they need to get over stagefright or have trouble remembering lyrics.

Your concious mind, your subconcious mind and your body must all be in alignment and share one clear vision of purpose. This will help you to rapidly achieve higher levels of performance and supercharge your motivation and drive to achieve your most exciting career goals.

The rights and wrongs of effective goal setting

What is effective goal setting?

Fact: 90% of people that set exciting, substantial goals to improve important areas in their life fail miserably and quit on their dreams inside the first three months into their goal plan.

Fact: 10% of people from a variety of socioeconomic backgrounds, often coming from absolute poverty or struggling middle class families, set the same kinds of transformational, life-changing goals. They not only achieve their initial goals, but they then go on to exceed them and live a fuller, more satisfying life that is enriched in every way.

When you achieve substantial goals, you open the door to a brighter future for you and your family. Achieving your goals creates a bulletproof level of self confidence and boosts your belief in yourself. This helps you create a wealth of new personal and economic opportunities for you to pursue life on your own terms.

My background

During my formative years. I was bullied a lot at school; primary, intermediate and college. I suffered many insecurities about myself, both my self confidence and self esteem were flat-lined. I became determined to improve my character and develop personal courage and belief in myself so that I could feel better about my life.

Consequently I would set goals to learn and develop new skills to improve my life, but i would fail to achieve my goals. This happened a lot during my teenage years.

I started reading many books on the subject about how to improve personal performance and the power that your mind has over your body in regards to governing your level of mental focus and physical abilities. I became fascinated with the science of improving personal performance.

I began to observe my best friends and I realized that it wasn’t just me that was failing to achieve meaningful set goals. My friends were struggling and failing to achieve their meaningful set goals too.

A light bulb went off in my head because in that moment, I realized the real reason my friends and I failed to achieve our set goals was not because we were lacking the physical DNA to be successful or star performers, it’s because our varied goal setting methods were completely ineffective. We were all setting goals using our own methodologies and none of us really knew what we were doing.

This marked the turning point for me because i became determined to double my efforts to uncover the essential steps of effective goal setting.

It’s not enough to follow one or two steps of goal setting. You’ve got to know and follow all the steps of effective goal setting to the absolute letter if you want to achieve substantial goals. It’s all or its nothing! To quote from Karate Kid the movie, “Nature rule Daniel son, not mine”.

And to be honest, it became my biggest obsession in the days before the internet to visit libraries in my spare time and buy loads of books on the subject of mind power and goal setting.

The more I read, the more I understood that yes, the methodologies were by different authors, but the essential steps were always very similar. I also realised that by the time I had read my twentieth book on the subject, I was closing in on establishing the key list of effective goal setting steps that I needed to follow to supercharge my goal setting. Steps to get my mind, body and spirit in agreement to take bigger and bolder actions and achieve my life’s most ambitious goals.

I began rewriting my goals. This time, I followed all the steps i had learnt from my studies. Results began to happen! I stayed on track for longer and longer periods of time, and achieved goals I had otherwise felt were out of my reach. I still had goal failures but not nearly as often.

Now I knew that I was on the right path. I became positively obsessed with refining my effective goal setting process and wracked my brain to discover essential critical steps that were still missing from the methodologies that I had read, or the authors were hesitant to put into print.

I will spare you the ten thousand hours of research, study and leg work that I went through and simply say, “Eureka!” I discovered the missing steps that you must incorporate into effective goal setting to allow you to supercharge the effectiveness of your goal setting program.

What’s the difference between the 90% that consistently fail to achieve their goals, and the 10% that overachieve and go on to realise their wildest dreams?

The answer is that the successful ten percent of goal setters either discovered the secret techniques to effective goal setting, or someone taught them how to do it. It really is that simple.

Learn the secrets that the successful 10% of goal setters use from all walks of life to not only set powerful exciting goals, but also become energised to follow through and achieve your prize then you can positively transform every area of your life.

Fact: Successful people understand and appreciate that there is a tried and trusted formula for effective goal setting that requires a much deeper thought and action process than most people are willing to commit to. 

If you start setting half-arsed goals, just stop. You are wasting your time. A goal that is set half-arsed doesn’t even produce a half-arsed result. Instead, the act of goal setting becomes so mundane to your central nervous system that it fails to fire up your brain’s neurons and synapses. When that happens in life, you’ve hit motivational, inspirational and creative rock bottom!

Most people are too distracted by everyday goings on to realise and they keep digging deeper into the same old uninspired (soul crushing), negative thought and unhealthy reaction patterns. I salute the mavericks and the black sheep among us that harbor fresh dreams and ambitions. Those that aren’t afraid to strike out alone against a system that very rarely rewards individualistic thinking or maverick behaviors. The meek will never inherit the world (that’s just a great way to ensure that economic slaves are kept in line by their corporate overseers). The people that will inherit this new world (the decade of 2020) and beyond, will carve out their own niches by developing mastery in their chosen fields of excellence. Mastery of their musical instruments, singing, songwriting, developing a world class artist brand. As providers of unique, sought-after products and services. Cheers to the mavericks and black sheep the independent thinkers. You already know who you are.

So what’s stopping you from taking on the world and achieving your music mastery dreams?

Lack of self confidence, fear of failure and doubting your musical abilities, or perhaps you have a gap in your musical skill set where you haven’t quite got your playing skills to that level to take on the world?

If you are experiencing one, or all of the above performance road blocks, I can help you by teaching you the secrets of effective goal setting, 

Together, we can sharpen your alignment between your mind, body and spirit to supercharge your self confidence and become an unstoppable musical talent and realise your musical dreams.

I can help you learn to employ the correct steps for effective goal setting

Yes, you can go online and do the research yourself on YouTube or Google, but the odds are 99 thousand to one that you won’t find any one article or articles that include all the essential critical steps for effective goal setting in one place at one time. 

My RVR Effective Goal Setting programme is the culmination of 10,000 hours of goal setting and personal performance research (as it applies to musicians and creatives) condensed down into a KISS format (Keep It Simple Stupid). My programme is street-tested and it works.

By the time I was 25 years of age, I had already worked with my favourite hard rock artists and bands. I accomplished that particular dream inside of two weeks of been in Los Angeles, California. It blew my mind how easy it had been to achieve my initial music career goal by following the steps of effective goal setting and I quickly discovered the power that I had at my fingertips to make bold, audacious dreams come true.

Here’s the “No BS”: 90 percent of people fail to achieve substantial goals because they follow some of the basic steps of goal setting but aren’t aware of the critical steps that they need to take to turn wishy-washy goals into powerful, executive commands that recruit and capture the imagination of their entire mind, body and soul.

So if you find yourself making little or no progress towards achieving your life’s most exciting goals, it’s because your goal setting method (or lack of) is self-sabotaging your own progress.

I can literally save you days, weeks, months, years of performance frustration and put you on the shortest path to achieving your music performance and/or life goals.

Better singing everyone.
