About The Creator
“Singing is as much mental as it is physical… and for most singer’s their mindset is the only thing keeping them from their vocal dreams!” – Joel Harrison
Voxninja and Think Better, Sing Better is the brainchild of Joel Harrison a vocal coach, singer, songwriter, guitarist, author, yogi and certified Hypnotherapist.
From his beginnings, as a singer, Joel struggled with his own voice. Overcoming these vocal problems has motivated Joel to help other singers solve their own vocal problems, free their voice and work towards achieving their own goals.
In early 2010 Joel returned from Nashville, USA receiving his accreditation as a Certified Brett Manning Associate Vocal Coach. Since this time Joel has been teaching a constantly growing student base and relentlessly researching and learning more about the voice through the study of numerous vocal literature, programs, ideologies, and anatomy. This has led to the development of the VoxNinja Warmup, Daily Vocal Workout and Think Better, Sing Better.
Reflecting on past experiences Joel conveys “I do not believe in making students feel uncomfortable or inferior in lessons, I have personally had lessons where I’ve broken down, been bullied and made to feel worthless by teachers….its wrong, if I give my best as a teacher and motivate my students in a comfortable, friendly, fun and professional atmosphere, it gives them the best chance to achieve their vocal dreams. I am on their team, if they succeed with their voice I succeed as a teacher”.
“Every singer and teacher for that matter is ultimately after the same thing…Range extension. Connection from top to bottom with no evidence of the passagio (vocal break). Consistency in tone and stamina. Finally the ability to sing from soft to loud and everything in between on any note within their range”.
Joel declares “As a teacher and friend, I am incredibly lucky to be part of every student’s life-long journey of discovering their truly unique voice. I love teaching as every day I meet and help new people, giving them tools to create the music and sounds they hear in their heads”.
“Over thinking usually leads to under performing” – Joel Harrison

F.A.Q – Frequently Asked Questions
How Long Till I see results?
How long is a piece of string? Most people will feel results, confidence and changes straight away while other will take extended or constant use. These resources are designed to address Singer and Public Speaker non physical issues. The depth and cause of those issues will impact the time of results.
I'm Currently Studying With Another Teacher/Program? Will This Be Counter Productive?
Think Better, Sing Better we believe will be a great addition to any vocal practice, coaching or performance. Some teachers love to belittle and try negative reinforcement with students. That isn’t effective and that’s not how we roll.
How Do I Use The Program?
Before listening to any of the Think Better, Sing Better audio tracks I recommend that you read and complete this e-book. This will ensure that you have a general understanding of the concepts used within the audio portion of this program.
Which Track Should I Use?
I would recommend that you try listening to each track at least 3 times over a few weeks. Don’t listen to all the tracks in one sitting, as you will burn yourself out. Tracks 4-14 are targeted at specific areas of the singer’s voice, mind, and body.
How Does The Mind Work?
Water will take the shape of anything it flows through. The ideas that flow through our minds will become the basis and nature of our thoughts. For the purpose of this program there are two levels of your mind.
The conscious level that is rational.
The subconscious level that is irrational.
These two minds are not separate; they are one mind with two forms of activity.
Your subconscious mind is always working whether you ask it to or not.
Right now as you read this text your subconscious mind is controlling your heart to beat, your breath to flow automatically and your eyes to focus from one word to the next.
Daily we think with our conscious mind and whatever we believe, think, or experience sinks into our subconscious mind. This forms your emotion and creative mind.
The subconscious mind does not reason or argue, it simply accepts what it is given.
It cannot determine is something is fake or real – including our irrational singing fears. Once the subconscious mind accepts an idea it begins to establish and work on exciting it. This can work for both positive and negative ideas. This is why as a singer you must think positive.
The little voice every person has within their head is not always speaking in their best interests. It is greatly affected by past issues and experiences, while fearing actions and possible situations in your mind.
Reasoning and choice within our conscious mind are the protectors of our subconscious. However with the techniques within Think Better, Sing Better we can override this protector and provide our subconscious mind with positive and prosperous ideas for the present and future.
What Is Hypnosis? Is It Safe?
Hypnosis is the most effective form of communication and in essence an altered state of awareness.
Hypnosis encourages a deep state of relaxation (or trance), concentrated focus and the subconscious mind becomes very alert (increased suggestibility). This is what makes hypnosis a great application for delivering new ideas (suggestions) for the subconscious mind to work with and to also unlock memories, motives and problems.
Hypnosis has been around for centuries and has been linked to ancient Egyptians and Greek civilisations. Hypnotherapy is using a trance state to help with problems. This is a perfectly normal and natural state of the mind. Nothing mystical is involved.
It is not black magic or a dark art; it cannot control you and make you do things that you do not wish to. A lot of these negative stereotypes in regards to hypnosis have unfortunately been developed by Hollywood to excite Hypnosis as a subject and talking point.
The adaptation of hypnosis into the modern day world is slowly taking place and its uses include things such as goal achievement, treatment of serious emotional problems/phobias, alleviate medical conditions and YES even an alternative to anesthetic for major operations.
I once another.
One person holds a ball – The hypnotist.
The client – Being hypnotized is positioned a few metres away from them.
The hypnotist communicates to the client by throwing the ball to them. The client’s job is to catch the ball.
The ball will not just appear or fall into their hands. The client must attempt and take action to catch the ball and believe that they can catch the ball.
Hypnosis is no different. A person who is constantly fighting the process or thinking “I’m not getting brainwashed or controlled or changing from this!” is not making every attempt to accept the hypnotist’s communication and will be unsuccessful in their hypnotherapy goals.
Is hypnosis safe?
Yes, absolutely yes. People who have been hypnotized before liken it to being sleepy, in a deep relaxation, or daydreaming. It is a trance-like state between sleep and wakefulness. During this time you are completely aware of the words and suggestions being spoken to you and are in full control of your actions.
All hypnosis is self-hypnosis. This is why hypnosis and hypnotherapy are deregulated in many countries around the world. The person undergoing hypnosis cannot be made to do anything they wish not to do. You will not be controlled or become a zombie.
To put this into perspective: the USA Government worked for many years and spent millions (possibly billions) of dollars developing the MK Ultra program to try to use mind control within the armed forces. This project was abandoned as it was deemed impossible. So it stands to reason that if one of the world’s largest governments cannot achieve this goal over years of research and spending, it is unlikely that I or any other hypnotherapist could achieve it.
“Well, what about those people I’ve seen clucking like chickens or thinking they are in Riverdance?
The use of hypnosis for therapeutic purposes is referred to as hypnotherapy. This is very different to stage hypnosis.
Stage hypnosis is firstly a form of entertainment. I know I wouldn’t pay money or expect to fill a venue to cure ‘Bob Smith’ of his fear of heights or his smoking. It is not a way to fix problems. Its main aim is to generate entertainment for an audience. That is, laughs at the participant’s expense.
The stage hypnotist ensures success by carefully selecting participants with extrovert personalities. Additionally most of the participants volunteer to be up on stage and also buy tickets and attend the event knowing to expect a night full of comedy laughing at others on stage.
The hypnotherapy tracks used in this program and stage hypnosis are two very different things. It would be like saying that stand up comedy and a singer/songwriter are the same because they both use a mic and have an audience.
Two very different applications of one common element.
What Are Affirmations, Visualisations and Meditation?
What are affirmations?
Affirmations are your own goals and desires that you repeat to yourself.
It is a declaration of words or phrases repeated over and over that something is true.
This process embeds the chosen ideas into our subconscious mind so that it transforms into our personality. This will make you more aware of your goals; you’ll move closer toward them and think differently or outside of the box.
This is the exact same way that positive and negative beliefs are created within your mind: Repeating things in your mind over and over.
These thoughts evolve into beliefs, which turn into reality.
Affirmations have caused my fears?
Affirmations have produced every belief and fear within your life and mindset, whether you know it or not. Every experience we encounter as human beings is stored within our minds. Memories of these experiences are re-traced and repeated over regular time frames and they form into beliefs.
This process is an important aspect of growing as a human and can help with important things like ‘don’t touch the hot stove it will burn you’. But if we have a seemingly unimportant bad experience with a minute situation or object (e.g. a bird, spider or heights) then this process can manifest these thoughts and experiences into beliefs, fears and phobias.
Here’s a great illustration of this: a single drop of water will not affect a stone, but constant drips everyday will alter and erode the stone.
What are visualisations?
They say a picture is worth a thousand words, so a visualisation is worth a thousand affirmations.
A visualisation is a visual representation of a desired goal. You want to win a Grammy? The visualisation of this goal would be you standing on stage next to your idol handing you your Grammy.
Another important aspect of visualisation is imagery. Imagery specifically involves stronger projections of all of your senses.
Imagery specifically for performers can be used to simulate the execution of a performance, address issues, and build confidence. It can help an artist develop a map or blueprint of a performance and allow rehearsal in one’s mind. This can increase confidence and reduce self-talk, nerves, and anxiety.
Always remember your mind cannot tell the difference between this visualisation and an actual performance.
Imagery, visualisation and all the techniques in this book (just like singing) will require practice. This will come to some singers easier than others.
However I assure you that it will be worth it in the long run.
Are thoughts and beliefs the same?
Thoughts and beliefs are, well, almost the same, but not quite. A thought passes through your mind.
A belief will begin as a thought or knowledge and is ingrained over time through repetition and emotion.
Now Hang On A Second....Does This Mean If I Think I Can Hit A High D Everyday, I Will Be Able To Do It?
The short answer is no. If it were this easy, I would have named this program “How To Think Your Way To High Cs & Beyond”.
Singing, like the majority of things in life, does not have shortcuts to replace the many hours spent developing correct vocal technique, configuration, and muscle memory. However, when we combine efficient vocal training with a positive mindset…results will start to blossom.
This program is designed to complement a systematic vocal training program or lessons that addresses the foundations of a healthy voice. In addition to improving your mindset whilst singing, this course can also be applied to other areas of your life from work and family right through to your self-image.
