Meet your instructor, David Benites

For 13 years, David Benites has been developing his extreme vocal technique, constantly pushing the limits of his range, tone, and endurance. As an active member of the metal community, he identified a desperate necessity for proper vocal instruction that catered to the needs of modern, extreme metal vocalists. To answer that call, David created a unique vocal training method drawing from opera, country, musical theater, and R&B designed to help students of all ages sing and scream louder, longer, with greater range and without injury. 


Anybody out there that's already a pro vocalist or just starting or anywhere in between or anyone that just wants to learn more stuff, hit [David] up because he's one of the best coaches I've ever worked with and he's so knowledgeable and I always learn something new every time I hit him up.

If you want to unlock your true vocal potential or simply learn a safe approach to extreme vocals then EVI is what you need. David is a fantastic teacher and his lesson plans have taught me more these past six months than I could begin to comprehend. After years of being unhappy with my voice I am finally discovering just what I'm capable of doing and I'm loving the progress. Thank you David for sharing your endless knowledge and creating such a great community.
