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.

- My close observations and beliefs. - For at least a decade, about 90 percent of people have been coming through our doors to conquer not only a voice repair but, as experience shows, first and foremost, to acquire a new and improved lifestyle… Our Toronto prominent newspaper, The Toronto Star , once said - “ It is not for the faint of heart ”. And I would add that it is also not for people who will be expecting change without change, so to speak. If those who are seeking help are not willing to open up and tell us their true story, then it would be very difficult to offer them the lifestyle modification - and thus the successful results of their voice problems and issues. I’ve said it numerous times that the human voice is an expression of the state of one’s being and the identification of who that person really is… The voice on its own is a “ tool” for communication and, needless to say, that if that very “tool” is broken, the communication also s
Case Study: This story is about Vera D of Barrie Ontario, whose vocal cords got damaged during her open heart surgery… Vera came to us in the year 2015 when she hardly could speak, and mostly was whispering. She told us her story whereas before coming for our non-surgical voice repair services, she had undergone open-heart surgery, after the completion of which, she fell in a life-and-death coma. It took over 45 minutes to revive her. Thank God, luckily for her, she survived the ordeal. But when she woke up, she discovered that she had no voice to speak. It clearly was damaged due to intubation and, perhaps, some other internal surgical procedures related to the main cause. She was told that she would never regain her normal speaking voice ever again. She underwent some very painful and useless tests that revealed that her vocal cord damage was permanent. On this note, she was offered not one, but two vocal operations with absolutely no guarantee that her voice will ever return b
Vocal Science™ Separated, divorced, feeling lonely...? This Is A Riddle. Feel like it is hard to speak and to even swallow? Feels like you have a lump in your throat? We can help, and not only with your voice being strangled but also with the stuffed-up emotions you have been experiencing due to the above! We promise that we will take care of you, holistically speaking… Rest assured, help is on the way and we are more than happy to guarantee you that! For quite a few years now, I have been working with a lot of middle-aged women primarily age 45 to 65; the majority of whom were separated or outright divorced from their spouses… The most affected (vocally and otherwise) were those women who did not expect it at all… Their spouses made it financially (not without their wives’ help). And due to that, they had acquired the power of wealth and some “mostly-fake” status. On that premise, shortly after, they left their wives and children to stat a newly-found life with a new, younger femal
