“I’ve been a huge fan of Natalie since high school! Her unbelievably impressive and effortless voice inspires and moves me profoundly. I was addicted (and still am) to every video of her and would go to all her shows when I was in college. Now seeing her high-energy, thorough, and super effective methods of teaching across platforms, I can’t recommend this digital course enough! I can guarantee that people will instantly learn and improve their singing chops greatly from it.”

“Natalie Weiss is the real deal! I took her class for classical singers and it was a huge eye-opener for me. Coming from a classical background, I knew how to do coloratura fast - but didn't realize how I could use that same technique in my riffing too. Natalie was super clear, precise (and fun!) and ignited a major interest in exploring more pop music (...and that's a big deal for an Opera Singer!). I not only learned how to riff - but also played around with a bunch of different sound qualities so I could explore a variety of pop styles. I love that Natalie was able to bridge the gap from a classical/musical theatre sound to more of a pop sound - and made it super easy for me to adapt my classical technique to a more contemporary one. I loved every second of it!

BUY HER COURSE! You won't regret it!"

“You know those types of teachers/mentors who are just so good at what they do, but they can’t seem to bridge the gap between being a master and sharing their knowledge effectively with students? Natalie has bridged that gap. I was classically trained but always had a passion for pop music. I truly could not riff before I watched Natalie’s “Breaking Down the Riffs” YouTube series. She makes it palatable for those who don’t have a natural affinity for riffing or who didn’t start out training in the pop genre. Not only is she full of invaluable wisdom and techniques, but she’s so patient and is rooting for you the whole way (even if it takes a million tries… which sometimes, in my case, it does). Her list of specialties is never-ending, but her pop and riffing technique is the real crown jewel. Training with her is changing my voice in thousands of ways and will absolutely revolutionize yours.”

“Natalie helped me to reach a huge breakthrough in my voice. She was able to help me naturally find my way through the difficult parts of my voice by guiding me through different exercises and hand gestures that really helped me to visualize and kinesthetically feel what she wanted me to try with my voice. I was able to do things with my voice that I hadn’t ever been able to do before, because she was able to communicate so effectively and clearly. I am so thankful for her!”

Xiao Shi

Yale University 2015

“Having had only classical training, I had zero pop sensibility. I used to think about pop and classical styles as completely disjointed. I remember the eye opening moment when Natalie pointed out that clean scoops are only a half step or whole step apart! Her visuals on breaking down riffs helped me bridge the gaps between pop-style riffs and classical melismas. Her methodology of styling a pop song showed me how similar of a process it is to styling a classical piece. Working with Natalie expanded what I thought was possible, added a lot of new tools to my toolkit for both classical and pop, and really brought the different styles of classical, musical theatre, pop, and jazz closer together in my singing! I now wouldn't hesitate to throw in a few pop songs in my audition repertoire or future recital programs.”

Cheyenne Jackson

Grammy-Nominated TV & Broadway Star, Two-Time Drama Desk Nominee

“I met Natalie 13 years ago and was instantly knocked over by her vocal talent and energy. Over the years, I watched her career blossom and was especially fascinated by her “Breaking Down The Riffs®” series. I had never seen anyone interpret pop idiosyncrasies into the musical theatre world in a real and tangible way. I recently reached out for her help on a particularly difficult “riffy” song. Her whole approach is so exciting and she feels like the coolest cheerleader. I also love that her face doesn’t lie; If you’re flat...her face will tell you. She has an ear like I’ve never encountered and she hears rhythms and intervals like a machine.

Her ear is a weapon…that thankfully she uses for good."


"I’m calling it: BDTR will make the textbooks! The process of BDTR is so fun and enjoyable it’s almost easy to forget that it’s a legitimate and valuable method. Textbook worthy!”

"As someone who primarily sings pop music and has experience riffing, this course even further deepened my understanding of pop music. It helped me internalize vocal gymnastics I had already been doing but hadn’t looked at from a technical perspective. I feel like I added so many amazing new tools to my tool kit, and dusted off the foundation of my pop singing technique! 10 out of 10 would recommend to any singer of any genre or level!”

Natalya Fisher

“Natalie guides students, like myself, who are trained in Musical Theatre towards a more pop-centered vocal quality. She gives you effective and simple tools to create a drastic result. Not only is she a master at riffing, she is also able to pinpoint how to attain that pop sound through a vast array of techniques and exercises. Learning from Natalie will leave you feeling prepared, filled with energy, and equipped with the right tools.”

Natalie Szczerba

"Natalie has helped me defy old limiting beliefs about my voice and abilities and instead instilled so much confidence in me and what my voice CAN do.  I’m no longer going to be avoiding auditions that require pop songs because I now have the tools, techniques, visuals, confidence, and materials to implement during those auditions and also nail them. I cannot express enough how voice-changing and life-changing having Natalie as my teacher has been and will continue to be.”

Justin Eddy

National Theatre School of Canada 2021

“I cannot speak highly enough of Natalie and her work. Her dedication and specificity in coaching has uncovered a power and strength in my voice that I have never felt before. Natalie’s technique and tools unlocked a part of my voice I had been working for years to discover. She has completely changed my voice, and I will carry the tools she has shared with me for the rest of my career and vocal practice.”

Mary Saunders Barton 

Professor Emeritus Penn State University, known for “Bel Canto Can Belto”

"I am truly in awe of the career Natalie Weiss has built for herself with sheer talent and drive. She is admired worldwide for her prodigious voice and musicality and has become a unique and powerful force in the training of contemporary pop singing. Her teaching is an inspired mixture of intuition and pedagogical know-how. She is inventive, challenging, and fun. You will laugh - ALOT. What I admire most about Natalie is that, for all her success, she is disarmingly humble, and leads with kindness."


This long-awaited, intimidation-free course digs deep into the contemporary stylings of pop music and leaves you with all the tools you need to unlock your full potential.
