How to Save and Protect your Speaking and Singing Voice for a Lifetime!
More and more, we are hearing about well-known artists losing their voices, cancelling their shows and tours and undergoing vocal surgeries.
Nevertheless, the amateur singers lose their voices in an everyday basis as well, we just don’t hear about it as much.
And lastly speakers: They are caught completely by surprise when their speaking voice seizes on them “out of the blue” or, at least, they think so. In reality, the voice loss is always premeditated. The worse it is for speakers, as they’re completely not expecting anything like that and the lost voice is getting them, the least to say, in shock.
The fact is that they do not realize that the voice is a vulnerable organ and could break very easily. Singers are, by far, more aware about it and those who proceed with caution, so to speak, are able to keep their voice healthy and lengthy for the rest of their lives.
So what about those who don’t know about voice preservation? We have the answer for them.
The Vocal Science technique, which we advocate, suggests you to use the different set of muscles (which are your facial muscles), instead of the vocal box muscles.
The facial muscles contain the sinus (vocal) cavities within.
That is where the voice (as a muscle) with the support of the abdominal muscles will get in and get secured within those cavities. Then with the proper breathing control, (also supported by the abdominal muscles), the sound gets projected to its aimed destination.
So, at that point, the mission is accomplished, as the wholesome mechanism, which allows the voice to work in its fullest capacity possible and with no pain or strain on the vocal anatomy, has been instilled in the human muscles and psyche.
