The question was funny, to say the least, but the issue was sad, as at 18 years of age, he was still very naive and simply foolish, to put it mildly. In our, so to speak, at least technologically advanced age, he sounded like he had no slightest idea about this world and how it operates, let alone about the human voice and what triggers it to work in a certain way.
I always said previously that the voice, like fingerprints, does identify the person, as each human being has their own unique voice, which, in turn, also reflects the state of their particular being.
Could that be completely changed or modified, you my reader, may ask?
The answer for the former: “No, like fingerprints, it cannot be changed.
But the answer for the latter: Yes, it could be somewhat modified and enhanced”.
For example, somebody speaks very nasally.
Could it be corrected?
The answer is: “Yes”.
I usually treat the nose congestion with the herbal and homeopathic remedies and then restructure the voice to the facial muscles and away from the nose. It then sounds wider, rounder and fully bodied and definitely not ‘nasally’ anymore. Somebody speaks too high or too low.
Could that be addressed?
When I work on a wholesome mechanism, which allows not only for the voice to work in the fullest capacity possible, but also puts that voice in a complete balance, i.e., for those who sounded too high (primarily males who never really came out of puberty), begin to speak with some base underneath of their high toned voice.
Those who speak very ‘bass’ie’, (men and women), begin to sound much more balanced and also consistent with the size of their physical bodies. In my practice, I had petite women who spoke with the low baritone voices, and quite short and, not necessarily masculine looking men, who also spoke with a low baritone or base voice.
That type of thing could be modified, mainly balanced to the gender and, as I pointed out before, the size of their bodies. As for singers, in majority of cases, singing voice could be exponentially enhanced with respect of the tone, color and fullness of one’s voice.
Once the voice is properly supported, structured, placed and projected, it begins to sound much more clear, much more articulated and much more full in its entirety. Of course, there are better quality and not-so-good quality singing voices I had been working with.
If the person’s inner energy is quite heavy, the voice also sounds less flexible and yes, sometimes, heavy duty. In this case, I definitely have to work on the person as a whole to lighten up his/her energy and, sometimes, release the grip that they could be carrying since their childhood. Some voices are sounding too light and, in this case, I have to build a solid foundation underneath of the person’s voice.
Usually, these types of people lack the overall confidence, which, quite amazingly, grows along with their voice development. Needless to say, without the needed confidence and the strong thriving voice, they cannot realize their dream to become a professional performer/speaker/singer.
The conclusion of it is:
Please take care of your speaking and your singing voice to the best of your ability. And, if you’re not satisfied with the way how your speaking or singing voice sounds, look for professionalhelp, as the satisfaction with your voice, will give you satisfaction overall.

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
