At Vocalzone, we have been helping hard-working voices for over 100 years and it is our mission to help your voice too. As a result, we have put together a short guide with useful tips on how to keep a clear voice. 

Here are a few excerpts from our guide:
Always warm up
We recommend very gentle humming and glides, for about five minutes in the morning and before intensive voice use. 
Stay hydrated
Caffeine, alcohol and some drugs can prevent the body from retaining water – minimise their consumption. Drink as much water as possible – we suggest 2 litres a day (6-8 glasses).
Don’t smoke
If you care about your voice, you should not smoke. The irritants in tobacco damage the voice and will certainly affect your vocal abilities.
Avoid late-night eating
This can result in stomach acid spilling into your larynx, causing hoarseness. Tell- tale signs are bad breath (especially first thing) and a sour taste in the mouth.
Monitor your voice use
Everyone’s voice has his or her own limits. Know yours! Loud harsh talking is more damaging than gentle use, so avoid prolonged use in “hard” environments such as pubs; even using your mobile in a noisy place.
Avoid repeated throat clearing
Clearing your throat and coughing can damage the vocal folds. Try sipping water instead, or sucking a cough sweet (don’t overdo it, cough sweets can dehydrate you) or try a Vocalzone.
Manage your stress
Stress can be very harmful to the voice, causing forced voice production and vocal fold damage. Relaxation techniques, deep breathing and regular exercise can help.
Avoid lozenges that kill pain
There is nothing worse than mask a voice problem with lozenges that numb your throat. Suck pastilles which do not contain anaesthetics instead, for example, Vocalzone.

Teachers

Teachers are 32 times more likely to report voice difficulties than the average person. It has been found that in around 60 per cent of schools teachers complain of vocal problems. Although teachers are 4% of the working population, they compose 20% of patients seen in voice clinics.

At Vocalzone, we realise that teacher’s workload is extremely high. On average primary and secondary school teachers work more than 50 hours a week. They also do on average 12 hours of unpaid overtime a week, which is the highest than any other group of employees. Classroom teachers in most school types report teaching 19 to 20 hours a week. That’s approximately a third of their time spent on using their voice at work. Intense workload also leads to health problems, stress and anxiety which increase the risk of developing a vocal problem.
Vocal problems make teachers to leave profession prematurely, or be absent for long periods of time. This is distressing for the teachers concerned, disruptive for the education of their pupils and expensive for schools. Therefore, as an expert in helping hard-working voices, it is Vocalzone’s mission to provide teachers with information about the importance and benefits of a healthy vocal regime. 
Teachers use their voice as a primary tool of trade and are thought to be at higher risk for occupation-related voice disorders. 

Factors that increase risk of developing a voice problem among teachers

Individual:

  • Being female
  • Being middle aged (40 – 59 years)
  • First year of teaching and 16+ years of teaching
  • High workload and stress levels
  • Family history of voice disorders
  • Longer classroom hours
  • Acoustics, pool, gym, classroom, outdoors
  • Underlying medical conditions e.g. reflux, hearing impairment, allergies, asthma 

Environmental and Behavioural:

  • Poor acoustics of classroom, gym, pool area or laboratory 
  • Prolonged effortful and forceful voice use in an environment with a high level of background noise
  • Composition of the class and large class numbers 
  • Prolonged voice use, especially in adverse environmental conditions

The following are two most common factors which contribute to vocal problems among teachers:

  • Ineffective projection and breathing techniques in by speaking for long periods when tired or stressed
  • Vocal strain from supervising large groups often in teaching areas with poor acoustics and against loud background noise

See if you are experiencing any of the following symptoms of voice overuse:

  • Regular or unexplained voice loss.
  • A weak and tired sounding voice.
  • A change in voice quality (e.g. hoarseness) for more than 10 days.
  • A voice and throat that feels consistently painful or as if there is a lump in the throat.
  • Frequent throat clearing.
  • Loss of vocal power or ability to project
If any of the above sounds familiar to you, then we recommend to be more pro-active in looking after your voice. Remember to consult your GPs or ENT specialist if any of the symptoms persist.

    Vocal Health Tips and Simple Exercises for Singing

To be more pro-active about your vocal health, you have to get into the habit of warming up your voice and strengthening it every day. If you follow the tips and exercises listed below you will see noticeable results in the classroom.

  1. When you get out of bed, don’t shout, yell or talk too loudly. Start humming in the shower. 
  2. If you teach the first thing in the morning, warm-up in the car on the way to work. Do more humming, glides and repeat your favourite tongue twisters.
  3. Drink a lot of water. Drink water before going to bed and have 2 glasses after you get up, ideally before breakfast. It should give your body enough time to hydrate your vocal cords before your first class.
  4. When teaching, maintain a well-balanced posture. Poor posture habits, such as twisting the neck around to talk to the class while writing on the board also strains the voice because it prevents the lungs projecting the sound.
  5. Don’t talk excessively above loud noise.
  6. Stand tall when teaching. Shoulder blades should be sloping down the back. Keep your head comfortably balanced at the top of the spine to increase breath support.
  7. When walking around the classroom, lead with your legs not your chin.
  8. Use your diaphragm by speaking from the belly rather than your neck.
  9. Breathe deeply and easily before you have something important to say. Big breaths generate volume, enabling you to power the voice from lower down, keeping tension away from the throat.
  10. Use your diaphragm by speaking from the belly rather than your neck.

Important: Don’t ignore changes in your voice that last longer than 2 weeks. Seek for professional help and see a doctor or ENT specialist.

  • Pick up the newspaper, choose a story and read it aloud, to yourself, in front of a mirror.
