By : on : February 16, 2021 comments : (0)

We singers, actors, and professional voice users have been known to be very careful about our own voice care and training.  Well, OK, FANATIC about our voice care and training!  While others are carousing and being loud, we’re being a little bit Diva about avoiding phonotrauma (i.e., forceful behaviors like yelling or shouting over noise).

Goodbye To 2020 – What I’ve Learned

By : on : December 31, 2020 comments : (4)

To say that the year 2020 was challenging is an understatement. The nation, and the world, faced a pandemic unlike anything in most of our lifetimes. The devastating virus known as COVID-19 wreaked havoc across the globe, sickening and killing far too many people. Lockdowns shuttered businesses and took away millions of jobs, but may […]

By : on : November 23, 2020 comments : (5)

If you’re a voice professional, voice student, or just someone who works on improving your voice, you’ve probably heard about straw exercises or straw phonation.

By : on : September 23, 2020 comments : (0)

Remember when the only people you ever saw wearing a face mask were your doctors and maybe your dentist? Not anymore. Now it’s everyone (or it SHOULD be everyone!). Cloth masks, medical masks, N95’s, face gaiters, bandanas, face shields…you name it, someone is wearing it. And with good reason: the Covid-19 pandemic has fundamentally changed […]

STOP GIVING 150% – YOU ALREADY GOT THE PART!

By : on : December 27, 2019 comments : (6)

Let’s face it, the entertainment industry is competitive. A recent study from Queen Mary University in London revealed a not-surprising statistic: the acting profession’s unemployment rate hovers at about 90%, and only 2% are making a living in the profession.  I don’t think anyone has done a study on the “unemployment” rate of community theater […]

DRINK UP! HYDRATE FOR A HEALTHIER VOICE

By : on : June 21, 2019 comments : (0)

Hydration – we all know it’s important for your health in general: for digestion, flushing toxins, healthy joints, for staying alert and clear-headed, etc. But why is hydration so important for your voice? The answer is simple: vocal folds (which aren’t really skinny “vocal cords”, but rather multi-layered folds of tissue) are covered with mucous […]

Ah, man’s best friend (and woman’s too!) – a dog. Dogs enrich our lives in so many ways. An endless source of unconditional love, loyalty, and support. A companion, a protector, and a pal to take away sadness or pain…. we get all this and much more from our dogs. I should know: I’m on […]
