VoiceCouncil thanks readers for sending in their top questions—the 3 winners are revealed below…
Q’s on Coaching
Singers want coaching on overcoming performance anxiety, developing a “larynx of steel” and pushing forward with their careers.
There were also important questions about increasing range, singing in outdoor environments and how to find a good vocal coach; readers will want to check out Paco and Ujiya’s great comments on dealing with nerves.
While you’re waiting for specific answers you can see all of Leontine’s important contributions at a glance.
Q’s on Technology
We’re really pleased that vocalists did not let the technophile-fears keep them away from asking their questions!
Singers have questions on how technology can help them achieve certain vocal sounds—or just the most reliable ways to produce good, clean vocals with the right level of reverb.
There were also questions about wireless headsets, pitch correction devises and voice/midi issues.
Sneak Peek: Bill Gibson has just written “Technology 101 for Vocalists” exclusively for VoiceCouncil magazine – you’ll find this on the site next week!
Q’s on Health
Singers have specific questions for their doctors – and we are so pleased that we have eminent physician Anthony F. Jahn, MD contributing to the site.
When it comes to health, singers are asking about how to best wake up the morning voice, how to protect the voice from second hand smoke, and the best ways to hydrate.
Other questions included advise about avoiding and recovering from infections and how to test your own hearing without an appointment at an audiologist.
The Winning Questions
Choosing three winners was difficult – and subjective! So, we’ve decided to run many more contests through the year to increase our readers’ chances!
All of the questions were valuable and will be shown to our blogging team – so watch their columns in the coming weeks.
