As technology progresses, more and more, I have been asked if I could do my instruction and an actual voice treatment via Skype, FaceTime, or phone.
The people who are inquiring sincerely believe that the above is possible.
I have news for them, IT IS NOT!!!
The problem with the voice is a serious matter and it has to be treated seriously.
Yes, perhaps, you can learn how to play guitar or even piano remotely, but the voice is an “internal instrument” and it requires special manipulations with the body and body language to discover it, uncover it, and recover it from within; especially when it’s trapped in the neck, shoulders, and chest, not to mention throat and nasal passages.
In this case the physical body has to be completely balanced and centred, the subconscious and conscious mind have to be aligned, the intellectual understanding has to be totally coupled with motor skills, and thus the wholesome mechanism has to be in place to allow the voice to work in the fullest capacity possible with no pain or strain on the vocal anatomy.
When I’m recovering the voice, or even just instructing the person on how to speak or sing properly, I connect with that person on an intimate, so to speak, level of being (almost like a mother connects with her baby by umbilical cord).
Without that, the restoration of the voice, or even an instruction of voice placement for the healthy voice is not possible.
So now, you my reader, please tell me whether something like that described above could be achieved remotely, without the master instructor and the student being present, in person, in the same room?
So this is your riddle.

- 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
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
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
