Over almost three decades of the existence of my vocal school, I had in my possession, estimated, close to 20 000 students to date, and that not to count numerous workshops and seminars I've conducted around the world.
My "claim to fame" for all these years has been: Beginner to pro-singer in a matter of (ten or less) hours, and not months or years. Therefore, the turnover of my clientele (singers and speakers) was quite high and still is. Many people over the years were commenting that I was working myself out of my business, by producing very fast and very good results with respect of my singing and speaking clients' voices.
However, the "quick fix", (not always preferred by my choice) so to speak, was not necessarily sufficient enough as it could have been, opposed to when the singer or a speaker for that matter, would give me and themselves more quality time than just for example only ten hours of instruction. Nevertheless, for some people, who truly just needed a good, sufficient and safe vocal technique, the ten hours of my instruction were more than adequate.
Those were usually fairly young singers who were for several years singing with their bands or doing their solos accompanying themselves on guitars or keyboards.
They truly were missing just the technical aspect of singing and not much else. Everybody, however, is different. Some people release their habits and accept the new modality of certain behaviour much faster than others. For those who are a little bit slower, the much more thorough "intervention" is required, and not only on a vocal level, but on a level of their whole being.
The voice is the reflection of one's state of being and it's also an identification of who they actually are on a human level. Some people come with their emotional baggage and in a manner of speaking, closed heart and soul. Yes, of course, in a short order, I can instill into them the basics of the Vocal Science technique.
And it will work on the surface and will produce quite a good singer or speaker.But there are a lot of good singers, but not too many exceptional singers.
To produce an exceptional vocalist, I need to get into one's psyche and on every level-mental, physical, emotional, psychological and of course, vocal. Once, I, so to speak, "Connect" with the exceptional singer to be, everything, figuratively speaking, will "lie in my hand". The development begins with an identification of the life components which the person consists of.
Sometimes I have to go as deep as the childhood, and then selectively, I have to start throwing out the negative parts of the whole life existence of twenty-five, thirty years of age...
Once the heart and soul is in the process of opening, a lot of good and bad would come out on the surface. The selection process then prevails. Both my client and I begin to dissect their human content and select the needed and positive pieces, while concurrently trying to get rid of the negative and useless parts of one's previous and present life. This is a very tedious and quite long process, especially if the artist to be, possesses a lot of life experience, which is not contributing to the prosperity of his/her vocal development and life development and structure in general.
Even though that this process is much longer than just a quick fix, but it still doesn't take years, and when the weed, so to speak, is eliminated, the vocal performer will be transformed into an extraordinary artist, as his "human computer" will be cleared out from all the viruses and in a manner of speaking, broken links and unwanted and not needed old pages.
He will start as a clean slate with the perfect Vocal Science software instilled into now his perfect and strong hardware. He will also be well advised to which "button" to press for that desirable "print out", first with my guidance and help and then on his/her own. The substance of that performance will be much, much greater, as we got down to the absolute "metrics" of one's being, and now, coupled with the perfect and safe vocal technique, it could never fail, but rather, on the contrary, it has the potential to reach the ABSOLUTE HEIGHTS, vocally and otherwise.

Case Study: This story is about Vera D of Barrie Ontario, whose vocal cords got damaged during her open heart surgery… Vera came to us in the year 2015 when she hardly could speak, and mostly was whispering. She told us her story whereas before coming for our non-surgical voice repair services, she had undergone open-heart surgery, after the completion of which, she fell in a life-and-death coma. It took over 45 minutes to revive her. Thank God, luckily for her, she survived the ordeal. But when she woke up, she discovered that she had no voice to speak. It clearly was damaged due to intubation and, perhaps, some other internal surgical procedures related to the main cause. She was told that she would never regain her normal speaking voice ever again. She underwent some very painful and useless tests that revealed that her vocal cord damage was permanent. On this note, she was offered not one, but two vocal operations with absolutely no guarantee that her voice will ever return b
- My close observations and beliefs. - For at least a decade, about 90 percent of people have been coming through our doors to conquer not only a voice repair but, as experience shows, first and foremost, to acquire a new and improved lifestyle… Our Toronto prominent newspaper, The Toronto Star , once said - “ It is not for the faint of heart ”. And I would add that it is also not for people who will be expecting change without change, so to speak. If those who are seeking help are not willing to open up and tell us their true story, then it would be very difficult to offer them the lifestyle modification - and thus the successful results of their voice problems and issues. I’ve said it numerous times that the human voice is an expression of the state of one’s being and the identification of who that person really is… The voice on its own is a “ tool” for communication and, needless to say, that if that very “tool” is broken, the communication also s
Vocal Science™ Separated, divorced, feeling lonely...? This Is A Riddle. Feel like it is hard to speak and to even swallow? Feels like you have a lump in your throat? We can help, and not only with your voice being strangled but also with the stuffed-up emotions you have been experiencing due to the above! We promise that we will take care of you, holistically speaking… Rest assured, help is on the way and we are more than happy to guarantee you that! For quite a few years now, I have been working with a lot of middle-aged women primarily age 45 to 65; the majority of whom were separated or outright divorced from their spouses… The most affected (vocally and otherwise) were those women who did not expect it at all… Their spouses made it financially (not without their wives’ help). And due to that, they had acquired the power of wealth and some “mostly-fake” status. On that premise, shortly after, they left their wives and children to stat a newly-found life with a new, younger femal
