Therapy for highly trained voices
As a vocal educator, speech coach and voice therapist, I have been linking therapy and training for highly trained voices in singing and speaking professions for 25 years.
Being trained in other varied disciplines, I have integrated and developed therapy concepts that can improve and resolve respiratory and vocal disorders of various origins. In the event of an upcoming or previous vocal chord operation, the voice’s vibration function is regenerated across its entire frequency range, and a breath-supported full voice is developed alongside the free head-voice function.
Pressure patterns in the vocal technique causing the particular symptoms, and the compensatory pressure patterns developing alongside the diagnostic findings will be recognised and altered in the development of a free voice in order to avoid further overloading. Awareness and development of a free speech voice play an important role in this process. Using therapy while meeting professional demands releases hitherto unexploited potential, also in terms of technique.
I have held lectures about therapy for highly trained voices at different universities throughout the country. One of these lectures was published by the Bundesverband Deutscher Gesangpädagogen in 2013.
