Voice harassment, There is Such a Thing!

I want those of you who are or Music Teachers and Vocal Coaches, or if you employ one to be aware of their techniques and training curriculums, focusing on not supporting methods of teaching students forcefully how to sing a song.

I think that Music Teachers and Vocal Coaches really have to, themselves have vocal talent, a strong physical ability as well a good techniques to train others in ‘how to sing a song.’
However, these techniques do not necessarily fit everyone!
Everybody has different ways of moving their muscles relating to vocalization, which make up the the voice’s tone and pitch.
In the case regarding some genre specific targeting Vocal Coaches, it is almost torture for the student to ignore natural abilities and force a student to sing by only the Coach’s techniques.
Specifically, the student cannot go against their training and the Teacher or Coach’s way.

This is Voice Harassment.

Please watch out for these signs and also be careful if you see a Vocal Coach or Music Teacher tell you the following:
1.Make sure you remember you should only practice singing by my method!
2.Why can’t you sing like I taught you?
3.You shouldn’t take these classes or training sessions if you can’t learn to sing my technique.
4.You squeeze your throat tight when letting out the high register, because you are not brave!
5.(Fire you up when singing!) Cursing, yelling or calling you names.
6.You are incompetent if you can’t sing this song!
It is important to know the difference between strict training techniques and voice harassment.
