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.

- 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
