EVI NOW FAQ
What is EVI Now?
EVI Now is a unique online lesson program designed for (but not exclusively limited to) metal vocals. EVI Now is a video-based cirriculum broken up into easy to follow step-by-step instructions on how to produce metal vocals and other forms of vocal distortion in a healthy and safe way. Users work their way through courses at their own pace.
How is EVI Now different from private lessons?
EVI Now is pre-recorded content, similar to the Extreme Vocal Institute YouTube channel but split into more specific topics and with more details. EVI Now covers a wide range of topics in detail in an order currated by David to help students develop a strong foundation and then branch out into more specific areas of the voice. We will be adding new content to EVI Now regularly so you will never run out of new techniques to learn and improve on!
Should I enroll in EVI Now or private lessons?
That choice is yours. If you're someone who prefers to learn on your own time then EVI Now may be the right option for you. EVI Now gives you the ability to learn and work on your vocals entirely on your own schedule. However, if you're someone who has very specific goals in mind, you might want to work with David privately.
Do I have to be able to sing to benefit from EVI Now?
You do not need any experience with vocals of any kind to benefit from EVI Now. Our program is designed with all levels in mind and you will work on building both your melodic range and extreme vocals simultaneously.
I've been doing metal vocals for years, do I need private lessons or will I benefit from EVI Now?
The choice is yours. Our EVI Now program is designed with all levels in mind so no matter how long you've been doing vocals, there will be something here for you. Private lessons are great for people who have very specific needs, goals or just prefer to work with someone one-on-one. EVI Now is great for those who would like to learn on their own schedule.
Are metal/extreme vocals safe for your voice?
Absolutely. When balanced appropriately, metal vocals and other forms of extreme vocals are safe. Our program is designed with vocal health and sustainability in mind so that you have a strong foundation and can be confident that you are not harming yourself while producing these sounds. Keep in mind that producing sound of any kind can cause "wear and tear" on your vocal cords, our goal here is to give you the tools to reduce this as much as possible when singing and screaming.
How long will it take me to learn how to produce metal vocals?
Learning metal vocals is a marathon, not a sprint. There are no "quick solutions" and we're not going to promise you that you'll learn metal vocals in a specific amount of time. Everyone learns at different paces and everyone develops at different speeds. What comes naturally to one person does not come to the next.
Are you planning on adding more courses?
Yes! We will be adding new material regularly to keep you progressing in your vocal development. There is ALWAYS more to learn, even for us, so we will always have new content to bring you.
How do I cancel my membership?
If you're finding yourself struggling with the program, feel free to reach out to us and we will help you as best as we can! We aren't here to guarantee that you'll achieve optimal vocal distortion in a set amount of time so if you haven't been sitting with the program long, your issue may just be time spent.
Can I submit suggestions for website improvement?
Absolutely! We are always looking for feedback. We have lots of plans for the site in the future but would love to integrate as many suggestions from our users as possible.
I am having trouble accessing my EVI Now account, what should I do?
Oh no! If you're receiving an error message, the solution may be to clear your browser's cache. If the problem continues, please contact us so we can better assist you.
Will I be charged automatically after my subscription ends?
No. Your card will not be charged again after your subscription ends. If you've paid for one month, at the end of the month your account will no longer have access too the program until you purchase another plan. The 6-month and 1-year plans are paid up front so your card will not be charged again after your initial purchase. We do not store your card information.
Do you offer EVI Now in other languages?
Unfortunately, not yet. This program is still VERY young (June 10, 2020). We are currently looking into ways to offer the program in other languages to accomodate as many of our community members as possible.
