Children and teens definitely require more effort and more care. Some of them are very emotionally fragile and sensitive, especially when they are approaching puberty at the age of 12 to 14. A lot of them become practically silent and very closed-in inside. Naturally, they don’t speak much; their speaking voice becomes low and dull.
Recently, I was travelling to Dallas, Texas to work on a person with a paralyzed vocal cord. She happened to have one of her granddaughters, who was about to turn 9 years old. My client’s daughter, at the dinner table, did confess to me that her older daughter was hardly speaking to her; and moreover, was put in a special class for children with dyslexia. When I met this beautiful girl, who hardly looked beautiful, as she was so down and obviously (in my opinion) was quite misunderstood.
I asked her to read the same script that her grandmother did during our sessions with her; and she read it perfectly and definitely without any signs of dyslexia.
Of course, my approach to a child was vastly different then my approach would be to any adult. I am using certain body movements, which help the client to lift the voice off of their physical body and re-channel it into the different set of muscles (their facial muscles and their abdominal muscles for the greater support of the lifted voice). With the little girl, I turned it into a ballerina game!
She loved to be tall, slim and beautiful ballerina, while concurrently; I was lifting her speaking voice. And then, to everybody’s astonishment, the little girl had begun to sing!
Then we have learned that she had always wanted to sing!
But she never knew how to and her speaking voice (and nevertheless, her spirit) was positioned extremely low and her speaking voice was coming out with an extremely low tone. At her eight years of age, she was considered to be a complete outcast with a diagnosis of dyslexia, which never had been present in the first place.
Within an hour, this child turned into an absolute beautiful angel with no inhibitions whatsoever!
Continuing communication with my original voice repair client (her grandmother), I was told that the child joined a school choir, being much more talkative and much more happy. The transformation (personality, spirit and voice repair) was inevitable and, in this case, miraculously got complete within only an hour and a bit.
Way to go, little angel!
Stay tuned for other case studies concerning children, teenagers and lastly, adults.

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
