There are many risks to singing when you’re sick and going to the Doctor early is the best way to avoid them.
Here’s what you need to know about singing when you’re sick and some of the first treatments that a Doctor will probably use.
I’ve always been curious about what’s going on with my voice when I do the crazy exercises from voice lessons.
As my business has grown, I have expanded my network to include great voice teachers, singers, and now ENTs.
ENTs are Medical Doctors that specialize in working with the Ears, Nose and Throat.
As a voice teacher, I am incredibly fascinated with the way the throat and the larynx (voice box) work to create the beautiful sounds of singing.
Now, for the first time, I went in to see Dr. Chad Whited of Austin ENT to have a procedure called a laryngoscopy and stroboscopy where a long tube with a camera and light on the end is fed down my throat.
This means, that for the first time, I am now able to see what my vocal cords look like when I’m doing these vocal exercises.
It’s my pleasure to present the video from that procedure to you.
Warning: This video is very graphic.
