Subject: RE: Help: Singers and laryngitis
Genie, regarding your question about resting your voice for rehabilitation, YES rest your voice. When you are recovered from the bronchitis, then you can start building up your voice again with warming up, humming, then singing, not pushing or over-using again. Be gentle and go slow in getting back to the full use of your voice. If you can find a good doctor that works with vocalists, I suggest doing that. We have only one ENT in our town, and I would never go to him. He has nothing but dollar signs in his eyes, does surgery at the drop of a hat and decided to add cosmetic treatments to his practice! A real money grabber, not at all someone interested in prevention. I hope you can find a voice specialist who can help you. - alice
