He is a seasoned performer with two solo CD projects under his belt and is a member of Tenore, blending his vocal with vocalists Shane Wiebe and Mark David Williams. Singing since the age of 8, he has toured internationally and has appeared on numerous TV shows.
With six years of experience in artist management, he also understands the challenges singers face in terms of issues such as image, stage presence, and learning how to navigate the business side of the music industry. In his management role he worked with singers such as Nicole Nordeman, Natalie Grant, Newsong, and Clay Crosse. And, he’s also an accomplished, full-time musician, exploring new ideas for melody, lyric, and moving an audience by connecting heart to heart.

Skype Sharpens Skills
There are actually some advantages that are unique to a Skype session. Many of the challenges that come from not sitting across from the piano keyboard in a private room, become opportunities for sharpening skills that can make you a stronger, more versatile singer with greater adaptability. It can help with sharpening your focus and ear training.
Points For Focus
In addition to the convenience Night Skype provides, the sessions can also work subtly to help you sharpen and refine communication skills as you focus on the screen, listen to prompts, suggestions, and direction from Jason. Even though your personal space may have some potential distractions, your point of focus is so much more clearly defined.
It gives you the opportunity to literally work on basic communication skills such as asking specific questions and bringing concerns to Jason in your singing lesson that targets specific areas, postures, positions, tones, exercises, and so on. It truly does bring fine-tuning and sharp-focus into play as skills that help you to become much more disciplined.
Night Skype also provides more flexibility and hands on control with creating a comfortable environment for your lesson. You can actually get your lesson in the exact same space where you do your warm up and follow the lessons in the products and programs you have purchased from SingingSuccess.tv such as the Top 7 series, Mastering Mix, Singing Success, and the Pro-Singer’s Warm Up.
New To Skype
If you’re new to Skype the software is available at Skype.com and is easy to install. All you need is a high-speed Internet connection such as cable or DSL. But Dial-Up is way too slow and will not work for a Night Skype session. Your Internet reliability is vital, as is the reliability of your PC or Mac, Router, Firewall, and configurations.
You also must have a webcam with a microphone, or a webcam plus a headset with microphone, unless your computer has a microphone built in. Sound quality is critical so make sure your built-in microphone works relatively well. Remember that sound quality is also influenced by your Internet connection.
Same Quality As In-Studio
Your Night Skype sessions with Jason will not only satisfy the need for convenience, the sessions bring you the expertise of a personally trained Brett Manning associate that truly is the total package as performer, artist manager, songwriter, and musician. Jason has met every detail of stringent standards that Brett’s personal certification requires – without exception. And Jason has been a student and friend of Brett for years.
Q + A
SSTV: What are the biggest changes in your voice that have come from training with Brett and his associates?
Jason: I have studied with Brett for almost six years now. There is no one I trust more with my voice. My voice has never been stronger. I used to think that I was a baritone. Now I am a tenor!
SSTV: What impact has Brett’s training had on your confidence as a singer, and in your approach to teaching?
Jason: I definitely have more confidence on my high notes. As a teacher Brett has taught me that the voice is a muscle. Athletes have muscles and focus on conditioning them. Singers should do the same thing. It should be the number one priority of every musician! I believe that by working with Brett and his team, I am far more creative than ever before. There is an atmosphere here that fosters great creativity.
SSTV: What are some of the things you bring to the table that helps to define you as a coach?
Jason: I believe that my time spent working in the industry as an artist manager and my years touring as an artist bring valuable resources to my students. My main goal is to love my students. If I can always do this, I can help them achieve their goals both personally and professionally.
SSTV: What do you feel are some of the biggest challenges faced by beginners that your teaching can address quickly and effectively?
Jason: Confidence is clearly the biggest challenge when you’re starting out. One of my goals is to help build confidence in my students, be it vocally, personally, or professionally.
And here’s more great news – we are running a special on all of Jason’s sessions! Jason’s sessions are regularly $125 per hour. But, for a limited time only – you can book a session now for just $100 per hour!
