How Do I recover my voice within 1 hour?

I'm basically doing a talent contest where I have to do a singing piece and a drama piece, I have to do my drama piece first which has a lot of shouting and after that I have to wait for 1 hour to do my singing and I'm a bit apprehensive about my singing so I was wondering if you have any suggestions to help me out. Your sincerely.

If you do not damage your voice, you can avoid the need to recover it. There are good shouting techniques that will keep your voice intact, but developing them will take some time. Before shouting, drink a lot of warm water. Warm up by increasing your voice gradually and learn the sweet spot where it does not hurt at all to shout and feels like you can do it indefinitely (it may feel scratchy a bit in the throat at first: work on eliminating this). As soon as you find that feeling, increase the volume of your voice. Those who switch from screaming to singing usually warm up for a week before that. In case you mistakenly employ the wrong technique, you will need a day or two to recover your voice: so be extremely careful with that. You have to employ the false vocal cords when shouting by pushing the air out much more intensely with your diaphragm. While using the technique, prevent pressing the voice and open the throat a bit more for the air to come out correctly. The best thing you can do in your case is to find a professional vocal male or female teacher (there is no need for the vocal range in the training, so both genders work) for extreme music genres who will teach you how to growl or scream, which will immensely affect your ability never to lose your voice after shouting. Again, hurting your voice should be out of the question. You usually cannot and should not force fast recovery after each play or song. If you damage your voice, much more rest is needed than just one hour.

Hi can you help me? Is it possible that I might lose my vocals and won't be able to sing again?

What kind of pepper should I use when making method 10 - Cinnamon. I've been having vocal pains and reduced heights for about 4 years now. 4 years ago I lost my voice after over-using it and it was the most painful soar throat I've ever had but I thought nothing of it until I read about nodules. Recently my vocals hurt even when I talk too loudly or for too long. I have tried: I have tried lemon, salt, ginger and honey. I think it was caused by: It's a hobby to sing and a habit as well I sing like 40% of the day and I talk really loud plus I was a trainer and had to talk loud and I sing mostly rock music

Hello, Sir! This is Rajesh (I am male). My question: why my voice is like a woman's?

When I speak something, listeners will say: "Your voice is like a woman's," and in mobile also like that. I am ashamed of my voice. Can you tell me about a natural therapy?. I have tried: Nothing tried.. I think it was caused by: I don't know exactly. I think medically name is there.

Those people who say that your voice is like a woman's are just the wrong crowd you are singing to. Do not even listen to them! You have to be yourself when singing, and your range and tone should be your pride. Our article covers some of the aspects of people endeavoring to sound like others. Here it is: "How to sing like yourself". Male vocals do cover the range of woman's. Woman can sing deeply and lowly, and men can go very high in their singing. Tones can match too. In fact, your singing is a great advantage for a lot of genres of music! Just keep on practicing and increasing your range both ways (high and low) by singing notes one after another. The best suggestion is to find a vocal coach who will help you with defining the best music genres for your singing and working on your overall singing capabilities.

I've strained my voice and it is sounding raspy. What should I do? It also sounds raspy when I speak?

I've done breathing and vocal exercises for two weeks everyday trying to prepare to get back out in public but never really felt I was straining it. I went to the ER in my home too and they did x-rays of my lungs and said I have chronic bronchitis. They did a breathing treatment while I was there and sent me home with a prescription of Albutrin and Ibatropium bromide to be used with a nebulizer,and a round of steroids. After one day I'm breathing much easier but the scratchy throat persist. Can you help?
