Due to the Internet being so accessible virtually by everybody, a lot of people think that they could find the answer and the solution to every problem they’ve got.
In majority of cases, they might; but in some cases, it’s just simply not possible.
We just got yet another client who literally explored all the internet sites available on earth, and ended up coming to us with an obstruction on the right vocal cord/larynx and, somewhat, mild symptoms of muscle tension dysphonia.
He was pushing and pulling his voice to the max, (almost to the point of no return).
He followed numerous methods and instructions and had done lots of speech and singing exercises, which lead him to the obvious damage of his vocal anatomy.
Being born and raised in New Zealand having a specific accent, his voice was very low positioned and his speech was hardly understood.
Needless to say, he spoke very softly and was hardly heard.
Today, after less then 14 hours of voice repair and concurrent speech and vocal instruction, his volume increased quadruple times over (speaking and singing), his annunciation and pronunciation became completely clear and he was able to embark on 2 sets (beginner and intermediate) of singing exercises, being able to reach over C of the second octave!
It was nothing short of a miracle!
A person who hardly spoke on Sunday and could not sing anything, (even a very simple melody), today, is heading towards a semi-professional singing level.
He originally booked us for 30 hours of voice repair and vocal instruction.
Yesterday, seeing and experiencing the huge progress, he changed his flight back home and booked an additional 10 hours which, in total, will make 40 hours.
Our projection is (literally pulling him out of the “swamp”) that we could bring him to a semi-professional level now; and on a later date, when he comes back to refine his newly found skill and take it to a professional level, we will be able to record a great demo with him, giving him a head start to realizing his dream of becoming a professional singer/songwriter.
We have to note that this particular person wrote numerous songs and even learned how to play a guitar, but basically had to “pack it in” so to speak, as his voice was no longer reciprocating towards his desires and goals. We are putting him back to his “vocal shoes” and we hope that he will have a “good run” with his newly found skills and rejuvenated voice and spirit.
So, on this note, we wish you to come to your senses and stop experimenting with your voice and your health in general.
We would not want you to feel like a Dracula outside of the Halloween celebration.
Best of Vocal Health and Prosperity Forward!

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
