RESOURCES / TRAINING FOR PROFESSIONAL VOICE USERS

Training for Professional Voice Users

Voice problems such as hoarseness, fatigue and throat discomfort are frequently found amongst those who are required to use their voices regularly at work. Common sufferers include teachers, lecturers, preachers, call centre workers, actors, singers, and public speakers.

Preventing these problems in professional voice users is easier than trying to deal with the problem once it arises, and yet many training establishments do not include voice care as part of their training.

In particular, teachers are often poorly equipped to deal with the heavy demands on their voice that teaching requires, which can lead to unnecessary damage to the vocal cords and time off work.
