This week we’re thinking about vocal stress and fatigue and how you cope with it.
Whether it’s a week of non-stop gigs, long rehearsals or lengthy tours, there are many times when singing excessively can put a real strain on your voice.
So the question is: How do you look after your voice to ensure your voice doesn’t get tired or worn out?
Last week I asked… “What’s your measure of success as a vocalist / performer?”
We had some great responses to this one.
This comment from Jaqui Wicks specifically hit home for me: “When the audience want to talk to you about the material, about your repertoire choices, that’s a successful show. For me it means that they have really listened. I love it when someone asks me about a character or a narrative or a situation in a song. It’s lovely to be complimented for your vocal abilities but better when audiences have really listened :-)”
Thanks to all who participated – and please don’t forget to get involved this week too.
