dorareever Post flu - lost vocal range (44) RE: Post flu - lost vocal range 27 Sep 01

working but not overworking...if I don't practice for a week or two my voice breaks down even if I haven't had a cold or flu.So you just have to re-start your singing routine but never try to match your past efforts if you can't,just like when you don't walk for a while then need therapy for starting again.Same thing.But that's already known by everyone you included I'd bet! Drink a cup of hot tea with a drop of whiskey and honey,that's good for your voice.I always heard alcohol wasn't good for singing but that'not true.Too much is...especially beer which makes your voice shrill and obnoxious...but a little drop of whiskey or brandy is good.I used to chew honey sweets or too,or drink lot of water.Just don't rest too much,keep on working even if on a slow pace,the worst you can do is not singing.The instructor of the last post was right! Just my two cents,I said what I do with my voice,but i'm not an expert,if you have a teacher o trainer maybe he/she knows better about it,
