FREE VOICE TIP: HOW TO KEEP YOUR VOICE YOUNG
It’s generally not the voice that wears out, but the power behind it that diminishes. If we use good support when we sing and exercise the voice-producing mechanisms regularly to prevent them from atrophy, we will be rewarded with a vibrant and resonant voice well into our later years. We can’t stop having birthdays, but we can take steps to keep our voice strong and vital.
Here are some of the things that will protect and preserve the singing voice:
Eat sensibly, get plenty of rest, and keep body, brain, and voice well exercised.
Use Passive Breathing to eliminate neck and shoulder tension when singing.
Use the strong muscles of the lower abdominals to support the voice.
Use a good daily warm up especially when you will be singing.
Keep moisture levels high with plant life, humidifiers, and eight glasses of water a day.
Be alert for the voice-damaging symptoms of Gastroesophageal Reflux Disease.
If you begin to have symptoms of vocal abuse, take time off and rest your voice.
Avoid yelling and whispering. They are equally bad for the vocal cords.
Don’t smoke and limit alcohol intake.
