(How to not damage your voice) | As described here in this mini tutorial, we are facing an issue that most singers struggle with. Vocal damage and soreness after singing, rapping and public speaking OR in some cases even through regular conversational talking. The most important thing is to keep your vocal chords as tight together as you possibly can to let out as little airflow besides the note as possible. Besides the fact that there are certainly exercises to strengthen the muscle: vocal-chord, you can for now just go ahead and listen to yourself singing a strait note or melody and if you can hear a hissing sound besides the note, you most likely are damaging your vocal chords. Try to create a sound that feel to your inner ear almost as if it sounds ducky. A little imaginary trick is to imagine to having to yell at someone on the other side of the street to see you. Say a loud and firm “HEY!!!” in order to achieve this with strength and volume you have no other choice but to tighten the vocal chords to create a loud and clear HEY. As always, we hope this was helpful, enjoy the video. 🙂
