If you are wondering how to sing when you’re sick, you need to read this article. And no, don’t worry, I won’t make you belt your heart out when you are sick. Of course not! I am a holistic vocal teacher, meaning that I have into consideration all aspects of a person when building their vocal instrument.
Cold and flu, and of course another type of sickness, are one of those things that are hard to avoid. And when we encounter them, we have to deal with them the best way we can.
Often my students have to cancel or reschedule their lessons because they got sick. Sometimes I get sick too, and even though it is annoying to be unable to use my voice as I would like to, it is a good opportunity to do other singing-related stuff that doesn’t require my voice directly.
If you can’t use your voice much but you still have some energy left, you can still practice your singing. You can make the most of the days when using your voice is not a possibility and work on things that you would normally not spend much time doing – but that are equally necessary for your singing training! OF COURSE I am talking about the kind of sickness that takes your voice away without making you spend the whole day in bed! If you are feeling awful the best thing to do is to take a rest 😉 but if you are dealing with a cold, or a sore throat from last night’s party, chances are you can still have a worthwhile singing practice (without singing)!
And OF COURSE: If you are sick of a contagious disease stay at home!
As you can see, there are so many things you can still do when your voice is not feeling well. There is always something more to learn and discover, so keep in mind that practicing vocal technique is actually just a very small part of the training!
