"One needs a voice teacher to learn singing technique, to solidify his singing foundation, and to add more delicate techniques as he continues his progress. Strengthening, training, and stamina-building are taught and drilled in the voice lessons. A voice teacher suggests and assigns repertoire; first, as a learning tool, later as a showcase to be added to the student's own portfolio."

Why the throat must be trained

Whether or not one is a professional who daily uses his voice for singing or speaking, maintaining vocal health is vitally important. It is through the use of our voices that we express to others our opinions and desires; and while it is something to which we seldom give a second thought, we should not take for granted something so central to our lives.

Far too often we read or hear about a singer, talk show host, or someone else in the limelight whose voice has let them down. Through the constant misuse of their voices, this happens to countless other people every day, as well. One does not have to look far to experience people speaking badly, whether on the local news, in a high school musical, or listening to teenagers on TV. The most pervasive example of this is the vocal "fry," in which the speaker's vocal cords are very loose, allowing air bubbles to rattle at a very low frequency. Very quickly, these people develop chronic hoarseness. If you have teenaged children- or if you are a teen yourself- please listen carefully to how they- or you- speak or sing. This fry is far more pervasive than most people think.

Many of those who speak or sing less than optimally- and this includes teenagers, their friends, and even their teachers- are not even aware of their shortcomings; and even when someone starts to feel the need to change, he often does not know what step to take next. Since we are in the habit of using our voices all the time, though, unless we make the conscious effort to change the way we think about and use them, we will only continue to repeat our mistakes and reinforce the negative habits which are the cause of the problems in the first place. This is particularly important for anyone who uses his voice regularly and for long periods of time, such as: singers, performing artists, media professionals, professors, teachers, lecturers, phone workers, sales professionals, etc.

Training one's voice and throat is what enables us to think about vocal production in new ways, and it provides the tools necessary for practicing and reinforcing new and better habits in vocal production. Only through proper practice can habits be changed for the better, and the sooner one undertakes the effort to improve his vocal production, is the greater the chance he will succeed and prevent vocal damage such as chronic hoarseness, vocal fatigue, or chronic vocal fry.

After all, we only have one voice.
