“Speakaholics Anonymous”… What Do We Mean By That?

Image
For many years, we have been attending to various people with speech problems, possessing voice disorders like: Muscle Tension DysphoniaSpasmodic DysphoniaPolyps on the vocal cordsNodules on the vocal cordsCysts and lesions on the vocal cordsAcid reflux & simply… strained vocal cords My answer would be to go ahead and only ahead and beat all the bad habits; and once it’s done, keep practicing (ongoing) the new adapted habits - instruction, diet, nutrition, newly adapted posture,physical fitness in general, etc.

All of the above voice issues would cause the sufferer (the least to say) a hoarse and raspy voice, unclear enunciation and pronunciation and even partial voice loss…
So with all of the above, they come to us for non-surgical voice repair coupled with natural herbal treatment.
Nevertheless, it is a vigorous, very intense and detailed process with, unfortunately, some setbacks…
I have my own definition for the latter. I call it a “Vocal Swamp”.
The person who would get “sucked int…

Clearer Speech? More Sound Singing…? It’s Got to be the Vocal Science Method!

In the previous years, I had worked a lot with amateur singers who were labeled as wannabe singers. A lot of them were recognized by various talent scouts and agents, especially when they were appearing in karaoke clubs or open mic events in a variety of bars and clubs.

Once upon a time, one of my beginner students was brought up by her husband to a big karaoke club to show him what she had achieved with only 5 hours of instruction (by that time) with me. She told me that she was very nervous and, understandably, felt very insecure…

However, she also told me that she remembered what we still call to this day “smile and bite”, as well as to also enunciate and pronounce her words with absolute clarity and to the best of her abilities.
Before she finished her song, (to my memory, it was a song called “Time After Time” – by Cindy Lauper), she was helped down from stage by a person who came up to her and praised her on her vocal performance.

He continued talking to her, bringing …

Attention Parents! Give your child a gift of a desired voice, confidence and self-esteem!

Our Vocal Science™ Program can help your child achieve all of the above with guaranteed results.
Let’s say that your child desires to be in a school musical play, may want to sing in a choir, would also want to have better presentations and thus, better marks at school. - Let’s make it happen, as no child likes to fail in front of their friends or feel rejected for that matter…
I have always said that the voice is the “spirit” which needs to be discovered, uncovered and unleashed to its full potential… Once that happens, the clarity, annunciation, pronunciation and projection of the child’s voice will become more noticeable and thus will attract the attention of other children and, of course, the teachers and mentors.
Once your child’s voice is “heard”, their confidence will also soar and he/she will become that much more self-assured. So, as a result of that, (the least to say) they will gain a lot more friends during the school years and for the years ahead.

If the above does not happen…

Have you ever had a thought, or were even told, that you could not sing… but really had the desire to do so?

Were you also, perhaps, ordered to keep your mouth shut and not to sing…ever…?
For the majority of you, it was happening in your childhood, but had this “minor insult” really left your mind now that you are in your adulthood? Not really… as it appears to be. More and more people are inquiring about singing lessons who had never sung before and, nevertheless, would dare to sing at all! 

How so; you, my reader, may ask? Apparently, the majority of those people were traumatized in their school’s music programs, choirs, auditions for music plays and what have you; or even some family gatherings like Christmas caroling during Christmas time, etc. Now these traumatized individuals finally decided to find out the truth and to discover whether or not they could actually sing.
Luckily for them, the Vocal Science technique is designed to give the gift of singing to practically anybody! Very recently, we were running a Healthy Voice/Vocal Workshop and one of our participants named Veronica happened…
