Why Does My Voice Go Hoarse When I Sing?

By June 24, 2022No Comments

This is an extremely common thing. I think it’s best to first understand why this happens.

When we speak, we speak at certain volume levels and a certain amount of “sound pressure” in the throat and on our vocal cords.

When we sing, not only does that sound pressure increase but the dynamic range (from low to high and back) increases considerably compared to the monotone nature in which we speak.

This places tremendous stress on the vocal cords and throat and requires a tremendous amount of body strength to accommodate this sound pressure.

Learning how to control this volume with correct breathing, correct open throat technique, and not “overusing air” maintaining a bright ping sound in the voice is how we overcome this.

I cover this thoroughly in my singing course.
