Voice Tips from Pamela » Lost your Voice? - Some helpful tips
If it hurts when you swallow, please do not sing....
Strep throat, Layrnx infection (Infektionen des Kehlkopfes), sinus, fever, or laryngitis can be a nightmare for any voice.
Lot's of sleep & lots of liquids, and no speaking would be fabulous!
But most of the time, for professional actors, speakers & singers "The show must go on"!
Here are a few tips I've used & found helpful....
Killer tea: Ginger/ Cayenne pepper/ raw honey mix....(I like to add lemon, but it can be drying for some voices).
Some all natural sore throat teas & gargle ideas by Christina:
A few tricks of the trade:
TUG OF WAR: Drop your jaw gently downward, stick out tip of the tongue & grip the tip of tongue by pulling it out with a cloth or handkerchief...pull your tongue back as you try to pull your tongue out at the same time. (pull tongue foward & back at same time, then wiggle side to side, back & forth.) Do it 5-10 times, then relax a few minutes.
Take a Q-tip dip it in Grain alcohol (Grain alcohol is also called ethyl alcohol or ethanol, it's pure alcohol, and is made from grains like corn and rye that have been fermented and distilled). Moisten the Q-tip, not dripping! Open mouth, place tip of tongue to roof of the mouth & gently swab over the bottom of mouth & inside of lower gums (this stimulates the tissues & nerve ends). Place a small piece of ice at the bottom of mouth, or take a sip ice cold water and roll it around the bottom of the mouth for a few seconds (Do not swallow!) Spit it out...
Let the mouth warm up again slowly till it feels normal again. Repeat the whole procedure 3 or 4 times...(in extreme cases follow again for 15 minutes). Now grasp voice box (larynx with thumb & forefinger & move it back & forth, sideways, up & down.
You may also take a spoon & press down the back of your tongue with a gentle downward pressure.
After this your voice shoud feel a bit more relaxed...
Now you can start to vocalise: Men Falsetto only! Soft breathy tones & very soft! Women use the same upper register. Using a very light but breathy tone sing moo-moo-moo (using all the breath, letting all the air escape on last moo. Be sure throat feels easy & relaxed. Start on B natural above middle C.
Repeat moo-moo-moo on that pitch till all the air is gone on last moo.
Once voice starts to respond & come back, try speaking in full lower register tone Mah-Mah-Mah. (men & women). If voice feel dry, swallow a few times...or gently bite tip of your tongue with mouth closed to activate more saliva to flow & swallow.
Sing well! Wishing everyone full & healthy sounding voices!
