Due to that, a lot of them acquired some growth on their vocal cords like: polyps, nodules, lesions,cysts, etc. Needless to say, majority of them are looking for a quick fix, so to speak. They do not realize that there is not such a thing, as something has to change with respect to their voice-use and voice application. The wrong application of the voice while speaking or singing had got them in trouble in the first place.
So, by removing the growth surgically, they are only, somewhat and temporarily, fixing the “instrument”… but what about the “player”? The person who speaks or sings (in a manner of speaking) represents the “instrument” and the “player”.
Let’s visualize a piano player who is constantly hammering on that piano. Needless to say, that piano eventually becomes broken. No problem though, as that piano could easily be fixed. What about the “player”, in that instance? Evidently, nobody took the hammer from his hand.
Now, take a wild guess…
The answer to this riddle: It is only as a matter of time until the piano will be broken again and, quite possibly, this time, beyond repair. Obviously, the “player” was self-taught, and thus did not know any better how to use the instrument without harming it.
With that said, not only the “instrument” has to be fixed, but mainly, the “player” has to be sufficiently educated with respect to how to extract the maximum capacity from the given instrument with - minimum to no - pain or strain (in our case) on the vocal anatomy.
So, some of our potential clients (especially the young computer savvy population) are choosing a “quick fix” surgical procedure in hopes that, right after that, they will begin to speak and sing as good as before, or better…? The surgery is done, the “instrument” is somewhat fixed (provided that there were no complications, like in Joan Rivers case), but the “player” is still ignorant and oblivious with respect of how to “play” on that “instrument” and do no harm to the “instrument” and himself for that matter.
Now go figure!
Please use your savvy brain and understand that there is no change without change!
Please use common sense and logic… It will always prevail.

Written by Diana Yampolsky Let me tell you, my reader, that music is often called the world's greatest communication tool. An effective piece of music crosses national boundaries, and a good song transcends any language barriers. With that said, a common problem that I have found which afflicts many aspiring singers is that because they do not realize that singing is a great vehicle for communication - ideas, emotions, lust, pain, frustrations, love, etc. Through singing, you can communicate those emotions more efficiently and also, more personally than with any other art form - be it film, writing or dance. But, evidently, not everybody is able to effectively communicate a story through the musical form. Some of the artists, unfortunately, appear truly self-absorbed, self-centred and purely egoistic, to even being able to share themselves with the audience. Needless to say, that they are primarily thinking only about themselves, their appearance and their voice. That's what I
"Vocal Genie in a Bottle"? If that's what it is... we have the “tools” to free it up and set you well on your way to your desired success!
We've been in business for almost four decades (Since 1984) and originally started it as a music school for children and adults. At that time it was named 'The Royans School for the Musical Performing Arts'. Then, a few years later, we turned it into The Royans Professional Vocal School, specializing mainly in singing, vocal performance and vocal recording. Those years we taught a lot of musicians and wannabe singers. At that time, they were coming to us for one and only reason: To learn how to sing properly and make it as a professional artist. There were no "hidden" agendas to rectify their emotional stress and/or modify their lives (single or married). Nowadays, and for some time already, we started receiving a few groups of people... The first group of people was pretty much the same as in the '80s and 90's i.e. Coming to us for one and only reason and mainly to make a professional career out of this. The second group of people, however, has been c
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
