Rough morning- Vocal Recovery Singing Lessons

By Ariella Vaccarino creator of Voice Lessons To Go

I'm sure we all have days when we destroy our voice over things; Yelling at games, stress with your family, talking over loud noise, or over singing.

Well, I seemed to be completely vocally out of wack by 7:45 a.m. the other morning.

I had a rough morning "pushing" my kids out to school, (I have 5 of them...).
It was just rougher than usually and I ended up using a lot of "chesty" yelling sounds to actually get it done.

I was super frustrated at the situation and also, mad at myself for letting all that tension go STRAIGHT INTO MY LARYNX.

Rather than pity myself, I decided to get productive and make a video about what to do when your voice feels the way mine was feeling at that moment. I made a CD about this exact thing a few years ago so I pulled exercises off of it.


If you listen closely you can here hoarseness in my voice, that was just after a few minutes of bad usage with my kids. The voice is very fragile, but it can also be very resiliant when we get back to doing things correctly.
