In order to structure, place and project the voice to its aimed destination, the alignment between the subconscious and conscious mind has to take place. In a nutshell, Vocal Science™ method is about the integration and synergy between mental, physical, physiological, emotional and vocal components.
When the subconscious and conscious mind are aligned, the person is more inclined to think and to act upon thinking. Unfortunately, (especially lately and due to enormous stress), people often act irrationally and without thinking first. Some, instead, are thinking forever and never act upon their thoughts.
Both statements suggest the complete imbalance of the above aforementioned components. That said, addressing the above aforementioned components could have a positive effect on the person while their voice is being fixed and/or trained. Those people who suffer from upper or lower respiratory infections and/or asthma could also benefit from proper voice training via the Vocal Science™ method.
The female population of the world could definitely benefit from intensive work with facial muscles, which (no doubts) provide the toning of such muscles and significantly reduce facial wrinkles.
While working with the abdominal muscles (for the support of the height and body of the sound), the stomach muscles become much stronger and the tummy is constantly “tucked-in”; which (by itself) makes the person look and feel trimmer, slimmer and more beautiful.
Once the person feels and experiences all of those benefits, he/she (by osmosis) would want to execute a healthy diet; stop bad habits (like smoking, drinking, drugs), and rather, instead, engage in physical fitness, lose or gain weight (whichever needed) and overall, become a more healthy and fit human being...
The conventional vocal coaching, however, suggests to stick the stomach out and fill it with air for, so to speak, “better breathing”; and thus, look and sound like a “pregnant ballerina”, nevertheless.
If you refer to my book (Vocal Science – Flight to the Universe), you would find a chapter, which describes such an ordeal.
It also falls into a key chapter which is called “How Not to Become a Singer and Work Harder at Doing it”. Now you can draw the conclusion from there…
In the past, I personally got across the new student who’s demeanor appeared to be skinny, but her “quite ballooned” stomach suggested that she might have been pregnant for at least 5 to 6 months. When I inquired about it, she was very surprised and revealed to me that she wasn’t even sexually active!
She also revealed to me that she had been taking conventional singing lessons for the last 10 years, and was suggested by her coach to “stick her stomach out while singing, at all given times”. So her abdominal muscles were warn out and became weak; and thus, she indeed resembled a woman who would be in her second trimester.
The Russian proverb is such:
“In a healthy body, there is a healthy spirit”.
Since I always advocate that the voice is your spirit and is also a reflection of the state of your being, (not to mention an identification of who you are), then (without a doubt) the healthy voice should be in perfect “Marriage” with a healthy and sound body.

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
