The Singing Voice

A pathological or functional disorder of the singing voice normally becomes evident from the following symptoms. The voice quickly becomes tired and is not so resilient. Strain and/or breathlessness are frequent. The vocal cords do not respond as easly, the changes in register are more obvious and the range of the voice becomes smaller. Particularly the soft onset of the voice and the high piano notes are lost. The voice tends to become husky and has a breathy or hoarse sound. Even a complete loss of voice can occur.

The aim of the therapy is primarily the regeneration of the voice. After the possibly organic causes of voice problems have been eliminated, the next thing is to examine and optimize the functioning of the voice.

The speaking voice is often treated at the same time as many problems of the singing voice can be worsened by speaking incorrectly.
