Vocal Health #10: It's A Wrap ...
Avoiding Issues Will Hurt You
"You're a vocal athlete," so treat your throat and voice well, says international voice talent and coach Bettye Zoller, in this final installment of her VoiceOverXtra podcast series on Vocal Health.
Summarizing what has been detailed in earlier episodes, Zoller reviews the requirements for maintaining a healthy voice.
Yes, it's common sense - get rest, eat a healthy and balanced diet - but there's more. Common sense stuff we might not think about, like "Don't do all the talking," drugs to avoid, and how to clear your throat without damaging it.
"If it feels bad, don't do it!" Zoller says.
It's a quick listen backed by years of experience.
