If the student is not a novice and has a strong personality, the private approach is the right way to start the voice/vocal development. If, on the other hand, we are talking about a complete beginner who has never taken any speech or singing lessons, let alone any other instructional sessions in his life, the group approach to start with for somebody like that would be the right answer.
Not only the above-described person will greatly benefit out of it, but will learn a lot to become prepared for the private, more intense sessions. I usually do not take more then 6 to (absolute maximum) 7 people in a group, to be able to provide the semi-private instruction within the group setting.
Due to that fact, the participants are not always put on the spot and have time to relax and to observe what others have been doing right or wrong. In Russia, we use to have a saying:
“Not too very smart people are learning from their own mistakes, but the smarter ones are learning from the mistakes of others.”
I think that the above is a very profound and the vocal interactive workshop allows the participants to learn from others and adapt the positive outcome for themselves. I personally conduct those workshops and find them very educational and fun to run.
Needless to say, after the participants experience the, so to speak, preview to the Vocal Science Method, at least 2 new individual private clients will be derived from this event. And let me tell you, to start the individual singing or speech lessons, or even the voice repair sessions, after they have participated in the workshop, is literally a “piece of cake”. I personally think that any workshops on any subject should be highly beneficial to give a jumpstart to anybody who is not sure, doubting or even skeptical to start something more substantial, and nevertheless, to pay a larger sum of money for it.
So I highly recommend to “test the waters” first before you jump into something which you are not 100% convinced about, or not sure if you want to fully embark on.

Hi Everyone, Some of you are already familiar with the name of Aubrie Morris of Pittsburgh Pennsylvania, USA who originally came to us in November 2019. She came to us with the diagnosis of Muscle Tension Dysphonia (MTD). Please read the beginning of Aubrie’s story by clicking the link below: https://www.vocalscience.com/aubrie-m-muscle-tension-dysphonia-survivor Her voice repair course and natural herbal treatment was supposed to be administered for 6 consecutive days in order for Aubrie to receive 30 hours of our revolutionary voice/vocal instruction by advocating by us our very own Vocal Science™ method. Unfortunately, we were unable to finish that course as Aubrie caught a cold and thus we were forced to cut our course short (24/26 hours). However, with the above said, her Muscle Tension Dysphonia disorder was almost gone by the time she left Canada. But, due to the pandemic, she was not able to see me until just recently. Due to that fact, waiting for almost a year and a h
Is your compromised voice your problem? The Answer is... The Problem Is YOU!! How so, you, my reader, may ask? Let’s find out, shall we? Dear reader, due to the confidentiality code, we will not be disclosing the name of the person of interest the story of whom is described below: A week ago, in our studio here in Toronto, a female in her late 30’s/early 40’s walked in ready to embark onto our introductory/exploratory session, concerning her voice disorder. She revealed that (some time ago) she was diagnosed with what’s called Muscle Tension Dysphonia (MTD). I asked her to tell me her story in more detail. And the more I spoke to her, the more I was amazed how this person could actually exist on this Earth and consider herself that her life was actually somewhat normal….? To her credit though, (looking quite shy and introverted) she was somewhat open to tell me about herself revealing her shortcomings….(about her voice and her life patterns in general). She volunteered to tell m
The Conclusion of the Year 2021: Accomplishments and Success vs. Challenges, Turbulence & Tribulations...
It's been still a pandemic year - with many openings and many closures, not to mention uncertainties and hard times in general. In our observation, people became more disturbed, definitely mentally as well as physically, and, nonetheless, more unstable than ever. Needless to say that it became much harder to convince them to get help and, nevertheless, to get them to actually embark on receiving help. Therefore, it became harder to provide any services to them, as a lot of those people have been (to say the least) distracted, worried and, moreover, depressed. For the record; Needless to say, that they, to begin with, have become much more suspicious, disbelieving and utterly insecure. Simply speaking unstable and, definitely (what I call) out of balance - on every conceivable level. However, with the above said, we have overall achieved a lot of success with people who were more stable, or at least have been understanding about who we are and what we could do for them via ou
