FDP Forum / Sing, Sing, Sing! - Vocalist's Forum / Horse throat after sunday singing



Sep 18th, 2009 07:07 AM   Edit   Profile  

hello all,
i lead in worship singing in church on sunday's but for the next 5 days i am pretty much horse. i do sing somewhat loud in church so i will be getting some in ear monitors to help control how loud i sing. we have a small church and the organ can get pretty loud. is there anything i can do or take that would speed up the recover time. i must admit i am careless with my voice. any tips on maintanance?

If it hurts you are doing something wrong and are damaging your cords.

You need to have a pro give to you a listen and help adjust technique.

This week I sang 3 hours on Monaday. 3 on Wednesday and 3 on Thursday getting ready for a weekend gig. It doesn't hurt and I could do it again tonight.

Last year If I sang John Denvers Country road the high part would finish me off and I could hardly talk when I was done. I have a vocal coach and that song doesn't even bother me now. Its all in the technique.

IMO, it's about the monitors. I can tell when I can't hear myself on-stage properly - I end up hoarse. Good stage volume and I could sing every night.

I found out about this stuff called Alkalol ...you have to go to the pharmacy they use it ..its cheap usually less than 5.00 and it really helps ...I sing a lot myself ..and lately I dont recover like I used to ...I am seeking a vocal coach now myself ...
