The talented singer is admirable. His voice is like a rare instrument in the hands of a master. And therefore, you need to handle it carefully, carefully. Let’s see how to keep a singer’s voice together. To prevent negative deviations, we consider the possible problems of the vocal apparatus. Coryza Appears as a result of a cold. For singers, it is unpleasant for complications of the nasopharynx, larynx and trachea, and subsequently the maxillary sinuses (sinusitis). In the future, the development of a chronic form is possible, which will not allow the development of singing talent in full. It is necessary to be treated by a doctor in order to avoid complications.
Can I sing with a cold? Without temperature – yes, with temperature – no. ANGINA Infectious disease with inflammation of the mucous membrane of the pharynx, pharynx, palatine tonsils. Continue reading
Tightness in the voice is a problem that accompanies many vocalists. As a rule, the higher the note, the more the voice is jammed, and the more difficult it becomes to sing further. A squeezed voice most often sounds like a scream, and this scream results in the occurrence of “kicks”, the voice breaks or, as they say, “gives a cock”. This problem is significant for the singer, so getting rid of it is not easy, but, as they say, there is nothing impossible. So, let’s talk about how to remove the constriction in the voice? PHYSIOLOGY In vocals, as in sports, everything is based on physiology. We must feel physically that we are singing correctly.
And to sing correctly means to sing freely. The correct singing position is an open yawn. How to make such a position? Just yawn! You feel that a dome has formed in your mouth, a small tongue is raised, your tongue is relaxed – this is called a yawn. The higher the sound, the more stretch the yawn, but leave the jaw in one position. So that the sound when singing is free and full, you need to sing in this position. And also, do not forget to show everyone your teeth, sing with a smile, that is, make a “bracket”, show a funny “smile”. Direct the sound through the upper palate, take it out – if the sound remains inside, it will in no case sound beautiful. Make sure that the larynx does not rise, and the ligaments are relaxed, do not press on the sound. A striking example of the right position is the performance of Polina Gagarina at Eurovision 2015, watch the video. Continue reading
If the problem of voice mutation in teenage boys, vocal teachers and parents are quite serious, then things are different with girls. However, this approach is not at all true, since the mutation of the voice in girls is no less serious. WHAT IS THE BREAKING VOICE MECHANISM IN GIRLS? The mutation period, as a rule, is much shorter for girls than for boys. In addition, signs of voice mutation are not very pronounced. This is due to the fact that an increase in the larynx in women occurs gradually. Scientists have proven that the development of the larynx in women occurs up to 30 years.
There are several turning points of development in which it is worth paying close attention to hygiene and the protection of the singing and conversational voice. Similar crises are attributed to 12-15 years and 23-25 years, depending on the individual characteristics of the body. The process of voice mutation in girls proceeds quite quickly (2-6 weeks) and in a mild form. Sometimes perestroika is not noticeable not only to others, but also to the growing ones. However, this does not mean that nothing is happening. In the process of primary reconstruction, the larynx of girls doubles, which is much less than that of boys (three quarters of the original size). In girls, cricoid, arytenoid and thyroid cartilages grow intensively. The uneven growth of individual parts and organs as a whole leads to some temporary changes that stabilize over time.
