Vocal Health #6: A Voice
Survival Guide for the Holidays
It's party time!!!!!
Yes, the holidays are fun. But noisy, too. And a noisy environment is a hazard to your voice.
How? You have to SHOUT to be heard.
In this podcast, voice expert Bettye Zoller suggests how to protect your voice in the coming months, as you navigate the holidays through noisey restaurants and parties.
When shouting to be heard over loud music or other voices, you risk damaging your vocal folds, she warns. The healing process may involve total silence - and perhaps a visit to a physician. Prolonged damage might even create nodes and the need for an operation to remove them.
Ouch. What will that do to your client list?
