Healthy Vocal TechniquePractical vocal training tips for singers

In the worlds of rock, folk, hip-hop, “indie,” metal, and punk — formal vocal training is often regarded with suspicion. Singers don’t want to smooth the rough edges; they don’t want too polished a vocal timbre; they don’t want to sound inauthentic.

I get it — but at the same time you don’t want to end up like Adele, with inflamed or bursting polyps all over your vocal cords, and a year or more of recovery (if you’re lucky enough to get your voice back at all).

Towards that end, I thought I’d compile a list of great articles from the Echoes Blog that will help you limit vocal strain during performances and aid quicker vocal recovery afterwards.

    Sorry – there is a lot of myth around the voice and I am surprised to read: "when vocal folds are strong enough to have a good closure but not touch."??? That just means you are singing in falsetto which is not healthy at all.

    These guys know about what is happening inside the body and how to approach the voice: Dean Kealin or Jamie Wiggington.

    • I've been away at a trade-show since Wednesday and didn't get around to moderating comments until today. So it shouldn't have been deleted. Just going through and approving them now. Sorry for delay.
