As humans, we tend to be on the lookout for shortcuts or quick fixes to our problems. Just one look at the diet and fitness industry proves that – no one wants to lose weight the slow and steady way, we want a quicker solution, something that will bypass the discomfort of dieting and the ridiculous amount of endurance and willpower required to achieve our weight loss goals.
The same is true for vocal health. Everyone who loses their voice goes on a mad dash to find the cure, the quick fix, the solution that will allow them to get back to life as usual because nobody has time to go on vocal rest.
It’s All About Prevention
Before I continue any further, what I teach in my patent-pending vocal method Unlimited Vocal Health™ is NOT about how to CURE voice loss, vocal fatigue, or vocal damage, rather, it’s about PREVENTION of voice loss, vocal fatigue, and vocal damage from ever happening at all. There are quick fixes for relieving the pain and symptoms of vocal damage, but THERE ARE NO QUICK FIXES for vocal damage itself; once the voice has been damaged, vocal rest (or surgery) is the only way to heal the damage. This is why I’m so hardcore about singers knowing how to PREVENT it in the first place.
Voice loss prevention has been a consistent passion project of mine for over 20 years and yet I still feel like I’m just scratching the surface of this industry problem. Until it is widely known and accepted that voice loss is preventable, until knowing how to prevent it is normalized (as opposed to believing it’s inevitable), and until it’s extremely rare that a major recording artist has to let down fans by canceling a week of concerts because of voice loss, I’m likely to continue to believe I’m just scratching the surface of this issue.
My goal – the one I’ve had since figuring this out for myself more than 20 years ago – is to be the go-to vocal health expert for recording artists who suffer in the studio, who struggle on tour, and who have close relationships with their ENTs who are armed with steroid shots should these artists reach out in need. It breaks my heart when I hear about recording artists who are struggling and considering major surgery on their precious vocal cords because they keep having this same problem. It makes me cry when I hear another recording artist has canceled a series of shows due to voice loss – and I don’t even have to have a ticket to the show or to know any of their music to cry about it, I cry because I know how it feels and wouldn’t wish it on anyone.
Passionate About Vocal Health
I’m passionate about helping this group in particular because they experience voice loss the most frequently, largely because of the demands of touring schedules and studio recording schedules. When someone isn’t armed with the tools to prevent voice loss and vocal fatigue from occurring, and they have a schedule that demands a lot from their voice, that’s when they are most susceptible to voice loss and vocal fatigue. However, with the tools I teach in Unlimited Vocal Health™, even the craziest schedule becomes a non-issue once voice loss is a non-issue.
So, maybe YOU’RE not a big-time recording artist, but if any of the below applies to you, KEEP READING because I have a free opportunity for you:
- Vocal fatigue or voice loss prevents you from experiencing the life you desire
- You feel tired after using your voice for an extended period of time
- You feel tired after using your voice with more volume than is typical
- Voice loss is more normal to you than a healthy voice
- You have never experienced any signs of vocal fatigue or voice loss and you want to keep it that way
(And of course, if you happen to personally know a big-time recording artist who struggles with vocal fatigue and who could benefit from this information, I would love you forever if you would be willing to make an introduction.)
Free Vocal Health Workshop
On September 16th, I’m going to be offering a free class called “Unlimited Vocal Health™: The Secret To NEVER Losing Your Voice Again” (I’m also in the process of writing my 2nd book by the same title which will be out before the end of the year and which I’ll be telling you more about soon).
In the class, you’ll learn the difference between what you’ve been told about your voice compared to the truth about it. You’ll also walk away with some new things to try.
