We had 7 teachers teaching all kinds of instruments and also giving vocal lessons.
In 1986, my partner died and shortly after, I moved to a new location and started specializing to what I knew best and have done all my life – vocal development.
In 1987, I turned The Royans School for the Musical Performing Arts, into The Royans Professional Vocal School, specializing in professional vocal coaching.
Now we have started dealing with teenagers who wanted to be either the next Celine Dion and later, Mariah Carey and Britney Spears.
Then came along Christina Aguilera and Ricky Martin. And then the music became more sexually and violently pronounced.
The music reflects and effects to what is happening at certain times in the world.
The music theme and scene changes and the mentality (especially of the growing teenagers) also changes.
The more “liberation” and “freedom” music offers, the more loose our growing population becomes.
They have been advised, (by Lady Gaga’s performances), that there should be no boundaries between the sex genders and your free to do whatever your heart desires, so to speak.
If the children/teenagers are being raised in strong families with both parents present, they have a much stronger support and thus, resistance to the outside, (sometimes not so perfect) world.
If the union of the family is broken and the child/teenager is growing like wild flower, it is very easy for the young adult to succumb to the suggestions of the outer world, as nobody is there to explain or teach them otherwise.
That’s how we acquire teenagers with problems.
Those parents who were busy working often have missed their child’s needs while the child was growing up. They realized it when they found their child dropping school, hanging out with the wrong crowd and, sometimes, even using drugs.
Now the parents are alarmed!
They desperately trying to discover their child’s talents and cater to that. The child, feeling alone and lonely, often turns to music and, particularly, to singing to express their hearts, souls and emotions.
They simply WANT TO BE HEARD!
To the parents’ credit, they find for their growing, and troubled children, some music/singing lessons, through which the recovery of wounded soul and heart begins.
I always said that the voice is an expression of who you are and Identification of the state of your being.
While working on the voice, I am mostly working on the human being and make sure that the person in front of me, young or old, first and for most gets back in balance.
And by structuring, placing and projecting their voice, I assure a total balance of the human being.
I assure that their hearts and souls are filled with music of the right kind, which in the long run, will make them that much more fulfilled and happy individuals.

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
