Vocally Speaking - How to Realize a “Teenage Dream” to succeed in the Music Industry at Large



I started teaching since 1976 in Russia and at that time was teaching primarily kids grade 1 through grade 8. They too liked the pop music, which was hardly available for the easy listening with the exception of a couple of local stars and some Beatles hits, which were occasionally played on the radio.

Nowadays, here in Canada and in Europe especially, pop singing is very popular amongst constantly rising young artists and of course the teenagers who are on a regular basis listening to them through their radios, iPods and phones, and who would want to emulate something similar in their dreams and who would also want to experience the glamour which they see and read about in fashion magazines and watching on YouTube. For some of them the dream will remain to be a dream, but for others it could become a reality.

At the present time, I myself have been scouting a teenage talent, primarily amongst young girls age 14 - 22. Some of them have more potential and more vocal talent, some less, but not only the vocal talent will take place in realizing their teenage dream. There are far more components which are required to make it big in the music industry at large. Luckily from where I sit, I don’t need to find the potential artist who writes her own very unique and original material, however that would be preferable. I do have contacts in North America and more so in the UK, where the prominent songwriters and producers will take care of that aspect and will co-write with the potential artist catering to their personality, portrayed future image, desires of their hearts and their intelligence. However, the confidence, the self-worth and self-esteem, not to mention the appropriate suitable looks will be definitely required from the future artist to put on the table of the equation. Some teenagers come to me and they have some components of the above description, but are lacking the others. Some of them have excessive weight, however very cute faces, but due to the former, have no required confidence or self-esteem. I previously said that the writing of the songs is not the issue. I can also, with absolute confidence, say that if they have at least 5% - 10% of vocal talent, I can complete the rest. I apply my Vocal Science(TM) method and revolutionary technique, which I’ve been promoting for the last 30 years in Canada and it works like magic and in a very short order.

So what’s left? What’s left is the persona of the future artist. As I said before, with my guidance, if they have a weight issue (I have a weight issue myself for almost my whole life, but also vigorously conquering it at the present time and could be a good example for my clients) they would need to take a serious care of it, as the prototype of a teenage girl is definitely a sexy looking and groomed body with the current fashionable clothes attached to it. The weight issues (again I know it first hand) could cause a lot of personal insecurity and low self-esteem. Besides myself, I have a team of people who could take care of all of this. It becomes that much easier for a teenager, because they’re focused and aimed towards their global performance goal. By learning how to sing professionally, they see that their confidence is rising as well (as knowledge is producing confidence). Then after they obtain sufficient amount of instruction they will be introduced to the most prominent recording studio in Toronto - “Phase One” - to obtain a recording of their demo CDs to be introduced as a sample to appropriate people in the music industry. All of that is the beginning of a Teenage Dream being realized in a real sense.

Let’s outline the benefits of this process while remembering that the music business is very speculative and nobody can guarantee 100% of making it big. However, the benefits themselves could be greater than even the actual final goal.

-  The excess weight is lost
-  The sexy image is obtained
-  The self-confidence and self-esteem is not an issue any longer
-  The focus and goal orientation helps achieving the greater studies and marks at school
-  The real recording studio experience with the real producers and engineers - every musically oriented teenager’s dream

And most likely, if they’re under my care and I find all of their achievements to be sufficiently accomplished, the winning ticket to success is absolutely inevitable at least in some capacity.

So if you have a teenager on your hands who has dreams to be successful and it happens to be in the entertainment business, don’t hesitate to visit our website www.vocalscience.com and read more on how to achieve a great success in wherever you or your kids will put the desire.

  1. Is this article real or satire? If it's satire, it's brilliant. If it's not, a rewrite's in order. Best of luck.
