Lately, a lot of performing and recording artists are experiencing difficulties (to put it mildly) with their voices. It is very sad, but it is the fact.

We’re hearing a lot about bleeding vocal cords, laryngitis, polyps, nodes and nodules in Artists’ throats. Some also have dysphonia and some, acid reflux, separately or along with the aforementioned diagnoses.

Now what…?

The artist is in distress, the management and record company are in loss of millions of dollars!

How to remedy the situation like that?

It should be not that difficult; find somebody who knows how to solve these types of problems, preferably non-surgically and non-invasively, i.e. somebody who knows how to change the voice application so that the vocal anatomy would not be irritated by the pressure of the sound and somebody who knows about natural herbs and remedies, which would greatly aid any human voice, and especially the singer’s voice.

Find somebody, who, after the voice repair, will finally guide and coach the artist on how to do it properly and professionally, so that the nasty vocal problems will remain to be in the past for good.

As a side effect of learning how to sing properly, those artists will do a service to the public, and by not continuing to destroy their throats and thus cancelling their concerts and tours, they will also save the public’s ears while singing with the proper pitch and projection.

In other words, find something that works and something which does not lead back to what did not work in the first place.

The so called Artist’s Team is anxiously looking for a solution to put the artist back on stage as soon as possible and thus, not to lose more revenues, and quickly recover what has been already lost, i.e. the revenue from the concerts, tours and live performances overall.

So they make a radical decision…?

Which one, you may ask? Are they desperately looking for somebody who in a real sense could save their artist?

The answer is: THEY’RE NOT LOOKING!!!

How so, you may exclaim?

Because they’re NOT OPEN to ANYTHING NEW and they’re not finding anything better to do, than to use the same people who evidently, in the first place, “greatly contributed” to the problem, and needless to say, would not be able to solve it!

My representative was trying to get a fax number of the management of a well known artist, who is just about to face a polyp removal off of his vocal cord. He was trying to notify the artist’s management that I, his client, could actually help this artist to solve his vocal problem NON-SURGICALLY. My representative got a reply that the artist’s management is not open to receive any faxes or e-mails about anything new…?

In other words, the management companies like that are looking for a change without change. They want to cure the problem of the artist by using the same vocal coaches and consultants who clearly aided in that problem’s occurrence in the first place.

How does it make sense?


There is an old good saying, “If something doesn’t work, try something else. It might work better”.

But that obviously would be “too easy”. Or in a real sense, evidently too hard, as it requires at least to read an e-mail or fax with an innovative proposal, which could save a lot of pain and aggravation for the artists and put back a lot of money to the management and record companies’ pockets.

However, THEY’RE NOT LISTENING and thus, unfortunately for all the parties involved, their “HEARING IS IMPAIRED” and the problem still remains to be the same.

What does Vocal Science(TM) mean and why is it a “Vocal Invention”, you may ask.

The answer is:

* This technique allows the voice to work at the fullest capacity possible with positively no pain or strain on the vocal anatomy.

* It works wonders for the healthy voice, but if the vocal cords or the vocal box in general are already damaged (or pre-damaged), this technique will help to restructure the voice into a different set of muscles (facial/sinus cavities), which will play the role of the natural amplifier or resonator, while simultaneously being put to work in full conjunction and coordination with the abdominal muscles and where the latter will provide the support for the sound to be lifted off of the vocal cords and off of the vocal box, thus in turn, the use of the throat, larynx and the vocal cords will be minimized and practically eliminated.

* In the case of the voice repair, the natural herbs and remedies will be administered to greatly aid the healing of the vocal anatomy, which had been released from the pressure of the sound.

Question – How does it compare to the conventional vocal coaching?

The answer is – IT DOESN’T!!! Conventional vocal coaching suggests to do the exact opposite of the above – i.e., the useless exercises and scales are offered, which are drowning the voice lower into the anatomy and, thus, disturbing the anatomy and inevitably causing its damage.

Those exercises are not applicable to any singing and therefore, nobody was ever able to point out to how to apply them.

Question – Does the Vocal Science(TM) method suggest the artist to change their “natural”, bad life long adapted habits?

Answer: NO, IT DOES NOT OUTRIGHT. However, the experience shows that while going through the process, the artist naturally stops not only the bad vocal habits, but also conquers bad habits like smoking, drinking and using drugs, which, no doubts, affects the flora of the throat. However, the Vocal Science(TM) technique is such that the vocal anatomy is engaged in the absolute minimum capacity.

So, even in an undesirable scenario, where the artist smokes, drinks, uses drugs or what have you, the Vocal Science(TM) technique will be applicable and highly usable in any way.

That said, it is not mandatory for the artist to change their familiar lifestyle and feel miserable while adapting the so called “New” conventional vocal technique.
