Vocal health for singers is an important topic. After all, as a singer, your voice — and, actually, your entire body — is your instrument! It only makes sense to fully understand how it works, and how vocal health really affects your performance.

Editor’s Note: Joanna from The Voice of Your Life blog pointed out a few things that we thought are worth adding in:

Lung capacity is important, but not as important as training to MANAGE the outflow of air. I agree that swimming is a great exercise for singers, because it requires both. Many people I see with damaged voices have tried to push out (expel) too much air; this is the opposite of real breath support. 

Also, recent acoustics research resonators are mainly in the throat, even though we experience them in nose and face. 

Thanks Joanna!
