At his Music City studio students learn vocal techniques of the stars.
"I use T-E-M-P-S. Technical, emotional, mental , physiological and spiritual" explains Manning.
Brett Manning has been perfecting voices for over 20 years.
"Singing is multi factorial, not just vocal chords, posture, nutrition it's all of these combined into one great singer" he explains.
Manning has worked with major singers like Miley Cyrus, Hayley Williams and Taylor Swift.
"It kinda embarrasses me to name drop but I have to say I just feel
Blessed I've been able to work with these people" says Manning.
They all come to Manning because he's the best.
Known world wide as the man behind "Singing Success", the best selling vocal program in the world. Used by tens of thousands of singers and coaches in more than 100 countries.
"The way you warm up is the way you are going to sing. So train the muscles in a way you can not fail" says Manning.
Manning knows a thing or two about talent shows. He was a judge on season one of "Can You Duet" and has coached many Idol hopefuls, like Kayla Nettles, who made it to hollywood last season.
"Before every performance I would warm up with Bretts cd in the car and it helped me with the entire process" says Nettles.
But beyond the contestants, Mannings techniques are also used by our newest idol judge, Keith Urban.
"I got to coach him through his first record. I said you don't sound like anyone that is why you will be big" says Manning.
