What we mean by this is that the human voice possesses a ‘rainbow of colours’, so to speak. It also possesses different varieties of voice performance.
Singers always say that sometimes they really have ‘good days’ with their voice, i.e., their voice obeying their commands and give them the right tonality, bright tone and perfect pitch; whereas some other times, they refer to the ‘bad days’, i.e., when the voice sounds dark in tone and the pitch and projection also suffer.
Objectively, the latter, in this case, depends on the mood of a singer, the weather and, perhaps, the personal circumstances prevailing the performance.
All of the above is somewhat good, but wouldn’t it be even better if the singer did not depend on the outer factors; but would mostly depend on the professional training and proper vocal technique, pertaining to the vocal performances and studio recordings.
After all, we are talking about the human being and the human voice he/she possesses. Even the acoustic piano reacts on the weather conditions and the inner environment.
If the place is too dry, the wood, hammers and strings of the piano will sound different, as opposed to the place which is in a balanced climate (not too hot, not too dry and not too moist either).
So obviously, the human voice is much more sensitive then any musical instrument and it also has to be ‘balanced’ with the ‘inner physical body’, outer weather and other outside factors - like clean or polluted air, for example..
I had always been saying that the voice is a reflection of the state of one’s being and identification of who that person really is.
I always refer to the voice as a human spirit, which with certain manipulations, flies away from the physical body (however, supported by the physical body components) and soars “like an Eagle” to the place where the sky(in a manner of speaking) is the limit!
So there are a lot of “shades” (probably more then fifty) which the human voice possesses. And there are a lot of variations within which the voice performs.
The difference between the amateur and professional singer is such that the professional singer feels and knows predominantly what would actually come out of his/her mouth.
He/she is able to control the colour of the voice, the intonation, the vibrato (on or off, depending on the style), and most importantly, the pitch (which he/she has to stay within). So no weather or various moods would shake that performance.
On the contrary, the amateur singer who does not possess the proper training and/or technique will react on different conditions such as weather, his or her own mood, and some other turbulence and tribulations which could occur on the day of their performance. Any other (even little) nuances could throw that singer out of “vocal balance”, so to speak.
The excessive emotions, lack of endurance, poor physical state of their body, could ruin that performance which the singer (usually, nevertheless, keeping his/her “fingers crossed”) was desperately trying to deliver.
So, in a side by side perspective, there are many shades and colours to both adequate and inadequate vocal performances.
The knowledge of the above of what to do and what not to do could save somebody’s career, and mainly their main instrument (their voice).
The lack of knowledge of the above, (in other words; musical, anatomical and physiological ignorance of how to properly use one’s voice) could bring the performer to the voice damage which (unfortunately, sometimes) may not be curable or even treatable.
So, before any of you call yourselves a singer or a vocal performer, please obtain the right knowledge of what it entails which, in turn, will save you from a lot of troubles with yourself and your voice.
For the greater clarity - Please do not allow your voice (and thus, your spirit) to get fifty shades darker…

Our recent international client Cedric H. (from Paris, France), 38 years old, had suffered from Sulcus Vocalis for 3 years, as nobody was able to rectify it. That definitely affected his business, as he lost confidence in presentations and never knew when his voice was going to cease. Here is his testimonial after he had undergone a 40-hour course and natural herbal treatment (conducted by Widely-Renowned Master Voice/Vocal Coach and Non-Surgical Voice Repair Specialist Ms. Diana Yampolsky), which had been delivered to him over 10 consecutive days: “My name is Cedric and I come from France. I was diagnosed with Sulcus Vocalis about 3 years ago. Slowly but surely, my voice started to fade off and I called Diana in September because my voice went totally off. She found space in her busy schedule and I made my way to Canada. I went from pretty much 20% of a voice to around 90% of a voice, which makes me today very happy. I know that there is still some progress ahead of me, but I
The True Success Story of Aubrie Morris (from Pittsburgh, PN, USA) Conquering Muscle Tension Dysphonia Disorder Under Our Alternative Care... Non-Surgically!
“Just landed… I had a wonderful, encouraging time! I can not wait to come back. I will definitely be in contact soon!” - Aubrie M ___________________ For the first time, Aubrie arrived to us on Friday, November 1st, 2019 from the USA. Prior to her arrival, we have been in communication with her for a few months, as she had to pay off her 30-hour course and treatment in increments. We had already been very impressed with Aubrie throughout the process, as she told us that she was working (simultaneously) two jobs - totalling over 70 hours a week. That was her only way of being able to come to us to conquer her muscle tension dysphonia disorder Up until Aubrie had arrived to us, we had no idea that she was actually a young single mom with a young son on her hands. For the last three years, her dreams of becoming a professional singer had been, unfortunately, completely shattered. Apparently, nobody in her native city, (Pittsburgh) could help Aubrie to rectify her serious voice p
The Jax Family Tory Jax, of Wisconsin, USA, came to us on March 28th, 2023, accompanied by her parents, Tim and Stacy Jax to treat her Asthma and Vocal Cord Dysfunction (VCD). She took a 40-hour Non-Surgical Voice Repair Course (within 8 consecutive days), coupled with natural herbal and some homeopathic treatments. Please see below Tory's Before and After Video for Speech: Tory J. of Wisconsin USA, has been a sufferer of asthma and VCD (Vocal Cord Dysfunction) for several years. The above was treated and cured within 8 consecutive days due to Tory undertaking our famous Super Accelerated Voice/Vocal Immersion Course, coupled with natural herbal and some homeopathic treatments. Using the newly adopted Vocal Science™ Method and its very unique voice/vocal technique, Tory was able to release the pressure off of her vocal cords, neck and chest. That immensely helped her breathing and her voice production (speaking and singing). Her mother, Stacy Jax, wrote after Tory's cour
