The first international client, named Alberto ‘Maui’ Mauiztic (a singer/songwriter from Cozumel, Mexico), came to us for just 20 hours of non-surgical voice repair and natural herbal treatment. He had severe pain in the throat while speaking and singing due to laryngitis and vocal cord nodules. Due to the above, his vocal cords were inflamed and strained.
- I would like to remind you, my reader, that the protocol for non-surgical voice repair, is minimum 30 hours of our very unique instruction and, of course, treatment with natural herbs and homeopathic remedies.
For greater clarity and in a manner of speaking, those type of courses are equivalent to a rehab (in this case, vocal rehab).
As our client/student has been raving about his success with the Vocal Science Method and Technique, I personally got a little concerned.
Because, first of all, we were short of 10 hours; but mainly, my concern was that my client was going back home anticipating a lot of “excitement” which no doubt could infringe on our newly-found healthy and improved speaking and singing voice.
I warn all of my voice repair clients almost right from the beginning of our journey that if they are not going to remain to be calm and composed after the process of their voice repair endeavour is complete, they might have a setback… This applies especially to our long distance clients who will be far away from me upon returning home.
I always give them an example of an athlete who usually does not start running marathons after deeply-intensive treatment, conquering their injuries. Those athletes, quite often, first learn how to walk with a walker; them on a treadmill, and then slowly on their own; and only after all of that, they begin to train in full strength again.
A good example of the above would be our Canadian figure skater, Kaetlyn Osmond - who just recently won the World’s Figure Skating Championship. Prior to that, she had a few very serious injuries which required some surgeries. Loving figure skating so much and being so good at it, she, understandably, was very anxious to return to competitive skating. And she did; but, unfortunately, too soon after the rehab recovery.
As a result, not only could she not defend her world championship title, but was down on the ice practically every jump. It was very painful and sad to watch, especially for me, as I am a very big fan of figure skating in general and her in particular. She, in fact, was ready to “hang up her skates”…
Her coach, however, encouraged her to become the best she could be and this time, he made sure that she healed-up completely (physically and psychologically) before entering any competitions again. Then her coach retrained her; so she was able to sharpen up her skills to the max which, evidently, made her the best skater ever!
After you have undergone the voice restoration (which requires serious commitment, energy and dedication), DO NOT engage in a lot of speaking and singing right off the batt!
The new application of the speaking and singing voice has to have time to set into your psyche, your physical body and, nevertheless, facial muscles - where the voice had been restructured (away from your vocal anatomy). We however, in spite of our pep talks and warnings, unfortunately had witnessed some setbacks, especially (and thankfully) with only a few, primarily long distance, clients.
Our Mexican client, after the fact, revealed to us that he spoke nearly non-stop and (on average) 12 hours a day upon his return… As far as we know, he is still ok, but we are still a little bit concerned for his (and his voice) wellbeing.
We will be updating you in that regard as soon as we get a hold of him and find out exactly where he is at right now, speaking and singing. Needless to say, we wish him all the best and hope that he will be “holding his horses” and retain the Vocal Science technique to maintain the ultimate health and performance of his voice.
While working with a voice repair client, my priority is to assure that my client understands exactly what’s going on and feels and hears every nuance of the performance of their voice! When the latter happens I am assured from my side that the course and treatment I delivered has been well packaged and ready to be “taken away” and be maintained for many months/years to come!
Our second voice repair client was a singer/songwriter from Detroit Michigan named Jon Synnestvedt.
Being quite a bit skeptical (trying everything and anything for a number of years), he decided to just take our 10 hour Introductory/Exploratory Course just to” test the waters”, so to speak. While we were going through the process of repairing his voice and, concurrently, teaching him how to sing, I discovered that there was a more serious damage on his vocal anatomy then what I had anticipated at first.
So, needless to say, Jon is now will be coming for the next 10 hour course to (at least, still partially) rectify a quite serious voice damage. However, in spite of very little time spent together (two and a half consecutive days), Jon experienced an exponential improvement in his speaking and singing voice. You can read his feedback to us by clicking on his name and image.
Way to go Jon!! The best is yet to come! Stay tuned to witness further success in Jon’s musical endeavours.
We are welcoming Jon back to start part 2 of his journey, commencing June 9th, 2018.
And lastly, we’ve just completed a 30 hour (the protocol) non-surgical voice repair course and treatment with Singer/Songwriter from Canmore, Alberta, Sue Denton. Sue was diagnosed with a polyp on her vocal fold. For the last few days during her very intense journey with me, I could not hear any abstraction on her vocal anatomy whatsoever.
Sue also attended our Healthy Voice/Vocal Workshop which took place this past Sunday. Read below her feedback from her course and treatment, as well as from the workshop.
We’ve just been notified that Sue landed safely in Calgary. We wish her all the best with her voice and all of her musical endeavours, now and always.

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
