ARTHUR SAMUEL JOSEPH, M.A.
Founder and Creator of the Vocal Awareness Institute, Inc.
Arthur’s life was fraught with uncertainty and emotional pain. From his humble beginnings, treated as an outcast, abandoned by his father, and living only with his working mother, who for a significant portion of his early childhood and adult life was seriously ill. Arthur always refers to her as his ‘hero’. Arthur’s life lessons were formed by these experiences of abandonment. As an insecure, confused and lonely 15-year-old, Arthur began studying voice as an extension of his musical education, which began at the age of 4 when his mother signed him up for accordion lessons. His voice teacher helped him unlock his Voice – his life calling, seeing both his potential and unique gift. Arthur discovered that he heard vocal sound differently than other people. He didn’t just hear the pitch, tone, or melody of the voice he actually heard and felt the emotion within the Voice. Arthur calls it “Perfect Pitch.” When he hears a Voice, he hears who a person is at the core of their being.
