How to Expand Your Range

Vocal Health and Maintenance

Watch this video below to learn why your voice can stop working and the best ways to keep it healthy. 




Have you ever been singing or doing drills when suddenly your voice cuts out? The air is there but the sound isn't as if someone hit the mute button on your voice box. There are two key reasons why this occurs and I want to share them with you and give you some helpful tips on what you can do to fix the issue.

The first reason why this occurs is because there might be little bumps on your vocal folds. This can be dangerous because over time these little bumps can turn into Vocal Nodules. Now, Vocal Nodules will eventually occur when you do two things: by smoking and by singing incorrectly (vocal abuse). Watch the video for a complete explanation on how vocal abuse and smoking will lead to Vocal Nodules, which in turn will limit your range.

The second reason why this occurs is because there is phlegm in your throat. It is important to strongly consider the things you do in your day to day that can contribute to your body over-producing phlegm. Watch the video for a complete explanation on the many things we put into our body that can produce phlegm. My gift to you are some exercises and tips that if you follow will help you to avoid your voice cutting out on you when you most need it.
