PRLog - Feb. 21, 2014 - PHOENIX -- According to the National Institute on Deafness and Other Communication Disorders (NIDCD) approximately 7.5 million people in the United States have trouble using their voices. Beth Lawrence, an Award-winning singer and composer, is helping business professionals and older adults recover from vocal injury with holistic therapies developed after a "crisis" threatened her career.
Lawrence’s company "All About Voice" provides private consultations as well as online group classes for individuals suffering from a variety of vocal issues. Her passion to find a natural way to heal vocal problems came about when she developed throat nodules while performing daily live shows at large venues and was unable to sing. After years of visits to ear, nose and throat physicians she discovered the methods of 92 year old Los Angeles Instructor, Maestro Giuseppe Balestrieri.
Once Lawrence was able to repair her voice and resume her career she started improving upon the Bel Canto vocal techniques she learned using a more holistic approach. Lawrence now helps others on an international basis with her classes, Ebooks and consultations.
“Business owners, teachers, attorneys, trainers are all prone to injury from the overuse of their voices. People often take their voices for granted until they start having problems communicating."
Much of her vocal rehabilitation therapy includes expansive breathing techniques which teaches individuals how to use their bodies when speaking instead of straining with the throat.
Lawrence says, “The ability to speak is such a huge part of the way a person relates to the world. Often when I work with others, especially seniors who are losing vocal strength due to age or illness, I watch them positively blossom when their regain the ability to express themselves.”
Her 39 year plus career has included national commercials, tours with major entertainers and a performance at the 2002 Winter Olympics in Utah. Lawrence has also recorded 10 CD’s including “When the Sky is Red” which was voted “Best Vocal Album of the Year” by the L.A. Jazz Scene magazine. Her hardback and ebook “From Shower to Stage – 7 Easy Steps for Singing Like a Pro” is available online at www.AllAboutVoice.com.
