The Non-Stop Voice

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?

We’d love to hear what you think on FaceBook and our Forum!

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.
