This thread is a home for links to the many discussions we have about vocal health, vocal technique, styles of singing, and how we use that instrument that is in our throat.

It will take me a little while to find all of them, so please bear with me. Here are a few to start.

I am not a voice teacher or academic, so be aware that "Vocal Techniques" was a humble attempt to explain something about breathing, resonance, etc. in terms most people can understand.

I posted this in the throat spray thread and I'm reposting it here, so don't be put off by the first couple of paragraphs ... I haven't gone completely bonkers.

Hot tea with lemon or hot water with lemon and honey. And never, never, never, never any type of dairy. It causes the mucuous membranes to go haywire. There are some throat discs called, I think, Throat Discs, that I used to use when I was making my living singing, and they worked very well. And, if you are not a trained vocalist, a few voice lessons to teach you to breathe and support properly will help tremendously. And, if you are a trained vocalist, utilizing what you've learned will help tremendously. Actually, I've never had any problems with my voice (I used the Throat Discs when I had a cold and scratchy throat) so I must have he-man vocal cords. When I think of those individuals who I know have had problems with throat polyps, they were untrained vocalists and were using their vocal cords to do all the work. One more thing, I've been sneered at when I've mentioned being a "trained" vocalist, as if, in being trained one does not have a "natural" voice. That is wrong and snobbish. Anyone who is singing on a regular basis should have "some" training, if for no other reason than to learn to breathe properly and support your vocal cords, so they don't have to do "all" the work. Here's a funny story ...

I started vocal training at 16 y/o and the most used phrase was "use your diaphragm." Physiologically speaking, I knew what my diaphragm was. At about 19 (1967) and becoming sexually active (remember this was the 60's) I went to my doctor to discuss birth control. He asked me if I had ever used a diaphragm, and I said "Yes, everyday." Luckily for me, he knew me quite well and questioned me further about the "diaphragm," and I left his office with a Rx for "the pill." moonchild

I know this aint the 60's but it still gives me a pang when my neices become sexually active at 16, then 15 ...

I think the throat lozenges are Fisherman's Friend, and they work in a pinch. cut the mucous like a knife cuts mustard.

Click here. how do you prepare to sing?

I have posted in earlier threads the advice that good singing technique will keep your voice healthy as you age. Don Firth describes in this thread how well good technique has worked for him. Preparing to sing is a constant practice, daily if possible, keeping your voice in good shape. Just before performing there are things you can do, but singing is a physical activity that relies on muscles you should exercise and tone up every day if possible. Instruction from a GOOD voice teacher is the only way to learn those techniques well.

Back in 99 we didn't have the tracking links that were related to the topic at the top of a thread, so this thread was created in "early" Mudcat days. When I have time to update any broken links outside Mudcat, I will work on that.
Thanks, Joe.
