A safe place for singers & teachers to THRIVE in their whole beings
Dear Singer and/or Voice Teacher,
TVF Founder Peter Jacobson here.
I’m thrilled to announce the launch of our newest learning program, The TVF Voices Community.
It’s for singers and voice teachers of ALL ages, genres and skill levels who are committed to the health and well-being of their whole selves – mind, body, spirit and voice.
As a member of this program you will get NEW content every month on one or more of the following topics:
- The Alexander Technique
- Body Freedom
- Vocal Technique
- Deep Practicing
- Natural Breathing
- Dynamic Musicianship
- Peak Performing
- And More!
We’re adding this program to our current lineup as – Bite-Size TVF!
It’s perfect for people who want to benefit from what all that we have to offer in TVF with a smaller commitment of time and money.
This program differs from The TVF Academy, a similar but more extensive program, in a few significant ways:
Enrollment in the TVF Academy opens only 2-3 times a year.
You can join this program at anytime.
The TVF Academy is currently $95/month.
A current TVF Voices Community membership is less than $30/month (roughly 1/2 the cost of an average voice lesson)
We’ve had over a hundred people participate in the TVF Academy and it’s proven to be a very transformative program. But it does require a weekly time commitment of 1-2 hours.
The TVF Voices Community offers you access to similar material at a lower time and financial commitment.
Here is what is included when you become a TVF Voices Community member…

1. VOICES: The Total Vocal Freedom Newsletter
You’ll get an ink-and-print physical newsletter delivered via snail mail right to your door on a bi-monthly basis.

The purpose of this newsletter is to educate, delight and inspire through:

There are two kinds of online classes:

3. Curated Monthly Resources
Every month, we will hand-select one of our most popular classes or presentations from the TVF Archives for you to view in the private member’s area. Many of these resources originally sold for $30/class.
These monthly resources will be worth the cost of your membership alone!
4. Inspired Voices Conversations
Every 3 months a brand-new, never-heard-before recording of a conversation that TVF Founder Peter Jacobson has with an “Inspired Voice,” someone who is doing cool and interesting things in the world of music and/or human potential. It could be professional singers, inspiring teachers, creative off-the-wall thinkers, and anything in between.
5. Access to Our Private Facebook Community
Our community “hub” is a private Facebook group, an international community of passionate singers and voice teachers.
We’ll do our best to support each other to become more whole and healthy in our singing, teaching and life.
And you’ll experience something that’s all too rare these days – kind, meaningful and respectful discussions about singing and teaching!
6. Exclusive Member Offers & Discounts
As a TVF Voices Community Member you’ll receive special discounts on TVF online programs and live events.
7. Special Bonus – 8 Online Open Mic Events (Limited Time Only)
From April 24th to June 19th, you will be invited to join the weekly TVF Academy Online Open Mic events. These events will be a great opportunity to share your singing (or poetry, comedy, monologue, etc)with the TVF community and/or be a supportive audience member. These open mics will be non-competitive safe spaces for musical sharing where every voice will be valued and celebrated!
These events will be held of the following dates and times:
- April 24, May 8, May 22, June 12 @ 7:00pm – 8:30pm US Central Time (Chicago)
- May 1, May 15, June 5, June 19 @ 1:30pm – 3:00pm US Central Time (Chicago)
Important to Know:
You do not need to consume everything on offer to make this program worth your while.
Even just implementing one or two of the many ideas you’ll get every month will likely be worth the price of your membership alone!
You can become a member of the TVF Voices Community for $29 a month.
There is no long-term obligation and you are free to cancel your membership at anytime.
What TVF Students Say
“TVF has completely transformed my singing and my teaching in the most unexpected, delightful, and profound ways.”
When I first started my TVF journey in 2016, I wasn’t sure exactly what I would learn. I was hoping for some tips and tricks for myself and my students, and possibly connections with other vocal teachers. Boy was I blown away! TVF not only offers a science-based approach to free vocal production, but also an incredible community that has become family, and more support and assistance than I could ever have imagined. I have already learned so much about myself and experienced massive improvements in my own singing, and I feel like I’ve just scratched the surface of possibilities! I can honestly say that TVF has completely transformed my singing and my teaching in the most unexpected, delightful, and profound ways. For once, the ”hype” doesn’t even begin to describe the actual experience. Joining TVF was one of the very best decisions I’ve made for myself and my career!
–Midge McMoyer Smith, Singer & Accompanist, Houston, USA
“I want to express my gratitude for you and TVF!”
“Even after such a short amount of time with these concepts I have renewed confidence and increased energy and excitement about teaching voice. I was really stuck in a rut and even went as far as going back to school and becoming a massage therapist and Reiki Master because I was convinced I needed a career change! The Alexander Technique is the missing link for me, clearly, and I appreciate that you have given me access to learning it and applying it to my teaching and also to my daily life.”
–Jeannette Smith, Voice Teacher, San Francisco, USA
“… a safe and supportive place for all of us to feel free and ease.”
“Peter, I love the way you teach….You are so kind and gentle. You create a safe and supportive place for all of us to feel free and ease. You approach to problems is very helpful….Thanks a lot for everything.”
–Angeliki Krissila, Choral Conductor, Thessaloniki, Greece
“TVF has totally transformed my teaching in so many ways.”
“I have gone from a very vague teacher to a very specific and informed teacher. I am learning a new more patient and kind way to teach. I am being given the tools to teach in a student-motivated way; encouraging them to ask questions and explore so that they are better equipped to learn on their own. I am learning how to teach my students to be more kind to themselves and grow in confidence in their singing. There is not an area of my teaching that hasn’t been made better because of my work in TVF.”
–Karen Archbold, Singer & Voice Teacher in Chicago, IL
