From a "Vocal Impotent" (in a manner of speaking) to a "Vocal Casanova"...

 In a previous article titled "Vocal Impotence - In Need of Vocal Viagra?" I provided important points on how to use your voice correctly and properly. I also enlightened my readers on how to comply with the standards of professional singing, which is a very important variable. Most importantly though, I also highlighted the key actions on how to protect and also save one's voice from any vocal damage and thus avoid succumbing to (figuratively speaking) "vocal impotence". With that said, I also explained how to use, in a manner of speaking, "Vocal Viagra" in order to cure any existing voice problems and, nonetheless, assure that the sound of the voice will last longer and also will sound fuller and stronger. In this article, I would like to talk about how to use your newfound or recovered 'instrument' (body and voice) in such a way that you will truly be able to "satisfy" any kind or type of audience... After all, figuratively speakin

Medical Doctors and Speech Therapists had, Once Again, Failed the Patient with the Sulcus Vocalis Diagnosis!

Image
How so; you, my reader, may ask? Our answer is; what else is new…? This story is about our former non-surgical voice repair client, Issac H – a Jewish community leader from Brooklyn, New York.  Once medical doctors had diagnosed Issac with such a disorder as Sulcus Vocalis ( a gap between the vocal cords), they strongly suggested to Issac to undergo a vocal operation.  On that note, Issac visited numerous speech therapists and speech pathologists…  Needless to say, he did not receive any meaningful help. Being only 36 years old at the time, he nearly lost his hope to be able to speak – using his normal voice again.  When he contacted us, he became very emotional and claimed that he was looking for somebody like us for quite a few years now.  He mentioned that he is a very significant person in the Jewish community and jokingly said:  “You know, Diana, we Jewish people are a very loud nation…”   Listening to his story, we, with absolute certainty, said that our claim to fame (so to spe

Vocal Paresis - The Causes and Consequences.

Get this: From Strep Throat - To Laryngitis - To Vocal Cord Paralysis... Isn’t that peculiar? More and more, in my practice (close to four decades), I have been hearing about the devastating vocal disorder - Vocal Paresis, also known as Vocal Paralysis. The interesting thing is that a lot of other vocal disorders are usually caused by speaking and/or singing in the wrong (and often aggressive) way. - Vocal Paresis, as well as, (for example) Spasmodic Dysphonia (SD) , quite often have additional reasons for their occurrence. Interestingly enough, I hear a lot about some kind of a virus (or even a simple cold) that had produced vocal paresis affecting one or even both vocal cords. When a person is under a lot of stress, their immune system subsides which means that they become more susceptible to all kinds of infections, colds, and needless to say viruses. A couple of years ago, a client from Atlanta, Georgia came with one paralyzed vocal cord, which occurred after he experienced a real

Vocal Science: The Forensic Science…

We are practicing alternative internal medicine while advocating the assurance of the best speaking/singing voice & nevertheless, non-surgical voice repair. We   Got   This!! Firstly , you, my reader, may wonder why we call Vocal Science the forensic science?  We do so because we are paying a great attention to the minutest details while working on the human voice (speaking or singing - damaged or not).  With our specially-designed speech and singing exercises, we build a, so to speak, “hurricane-proof” foundation for the future “house” to “stand on” and to be “built upon”…   Evidently, broken or not, and first of all the speaking voice (before the singing voice, if required to be worked on) has to be put in balance along with the person’s physical body, mind, and nevertheless the motor skills. To achieve the desired result while building the proper voice application (ultimate voice/vocal technique), especially with respect to the voice restoration, those aforementione

Vocal Science™: Acid Reflux Affecting Voice - Case Study!

Image
Case Study! For many years we have been fixing people’s voices which have been affected by acid reflux…  One of the cases - of the year 2014 - stands out the most. A woman in her early 40’s walked into our studio and told us her story…  She was divorced from her very abusive husband, who happened to be a lawyer and also the father of her 10-year-old daughter.  So this beautiful woman of Middle-Eastern descent was now a single Mom and a kindergarten school teacher.  Due to her occupation (dealing with young children all-day), she had to speak a lot and also sing rhymes and songs with quite a large group of preschoolers… Meanwhile, she told us that she got a hole in her esophagus; and, due to that fact, her gastric acid was uncontrollably shooting to her throat…  Naturally, her voice was very-much-so affected; therefore, causing her voice to sound raspy and hoarse. I had to explain to her that she had two related problems: One of them was purely medical and the other one was a wrong app

Could Vocal Talent Alone Assure Your Vocal Performance Career For Life?

Image
Evidently not… It sounds ridiculous, doesn’t it? Let’s analyze what has been happening in the last few years and, nevertheless, recently: Majority of our very talented artists had experienced vocal problems in one-way or another. A lot of them had undergone vocal operations: Adele John Mayer Joan Rivers Megan Trainor Sam Smith Roger Daltrey Steven Tyler Keith Urban Michael Buble And that’s to name a few… All of the above-listed people are talented artists, but obviously, the majority of them had been lacking the proper vocal technique; and thus, they ended up having vocal issues (and some of them more serious than others). Could they have avoided the interruption of their professional lives, careers, joy and monetary loss? No doubts they could - They just could have been more attentive to the technical aspects of their craft and not just rely on their talents and love for music. Could you imagine a figure skater trying to jump a triple or quad
