Voice Training - Medically Proven Techniques Used by Singing & Speaking Voice Doctors Throughout North America. Those same techniques are taught to health professionals and only a few Vocal Coaches, like me.

Don't miss out on this exceptionally high level training!

Hoarseness, a tight throat, a soft/airy sounding voice, the need to force or put extra effort into producing volume is NEVER Normal. It is your body giving you signals to tell you that the voice is not being used properly and that the beginning of bad habits and possible voice damage has begun.

Let's work together to change that before it goes too far making things far more complex than they need to be.

I as a Vocal Coach and someone who specializes in the health of the voice based on my added training beyond what a vocal coach offers, can assess the pitfalls and get you moving in the right direction.


I have worked with singers for decades. I hear it all the time. I love to sing but when I do, I get hoarse and need to shout to be heard. After only a few hours my voice is gone and it is sore. Some days I just want to give up. What am I doing wrong? What can I do about it?

Public speakers and people with jobs that involve a lot of talking complain about the wear and tear on their voice.

Sadly, these are all too common problems. The good news is that it is not your fault. Many people use their voice from a place of passion without having the know-how to protect it. We are encouraged to do so from other musicians, choir leaders, friends, our audience, our desire to succeed in our careers, etc. Oh yes, and because we love to belt out our favourite tunes. It is no wonder we forget that the voice is our instrument and that it is to be treated with care and respect.

Some people are born with the gift of a great sounding strong voice, but that is very rare. Most need to sharpen their skills and treat it as a craft. You need to understand how your voice functions automatically and take considerable care not to use it in a way that diminishes what it is capable of doing.

You need to take responsibility for your voice because nobody else will.

What are you doing wrong you ask? While you are probably doing many things right, I suspect you have developed one or two bad habits throwing everything off track.

Remember, the voice has the ability to get stronger and better, not deteriorate. If that is not happening you need to stop all vocal scales immediately, excessive singing/speaking, and put a plan in place to correct the issues before things get worse. That's where I come in!
