Questions and Answers

Quickest way to treat a coarse voice before a performance without drinking lemon tea?

Ad

You will need to do this weeks before your performance to make sure that you get the best quality of voice on that day. You can try drinking ginger juice (boiled ginger in water). It soothes the vocal chords and helps them heal as well. Make sure that you do not do rigorous practice days before the performance as it will only damage it more. Reduce intake of cold drinks as well.

What food or drink can I take just before I sing that will help me do a better job?

Before singing, it is good to drink hot ginger tea or warm water with honey or baking soda with corn syrup. You can drink these before your performance and it can help you do a better job.

Avoid foods and drinks that are acidic.

You also have to avoid cold drinks like cold water and soft drinks. Even milk and hot chocolate will not be good for your singing voice.

If ginger tea and the other solutions are not available, hot water is enough to clear your vocal cord and will lubricate your mouth.

If I eat peppermint candy frequently will it affect my voice?

Lately I am having a problem hitting high notes. I have not had this problem before. I wondered if eating peppermint candy was the cause.

Actually, peppermint candy is not bad for the voice. It even helps soothe your vocal cords and is very good when you feel like you have very itchy or tired throat. As long as you are not consuming the ones which are high in sugar, it is perfectly safe to eat it frequently.

Does lime water help in maintaining a better singing voice?

Yes, lime water has a lot of vitamin c in it which will help to give your voice and body a healthy boost. Along with lime water, it contains acids that will allow the breaking down of mucus that is in your throat to improve your singing voice.

Many people believe that by placing honey into the lime water that it will help but this is not true being that honey contains sugars which will counteract the improving effects of the lime water. Do your best to drink the lime water alone, or even lemon water for these two will help give you a vitamin c boost to your immune system and singing voice.

To maintain your voice stay away from sugary foods and drinks as this can cause an issue with your voice.

Which teas are okay to drink when warming up for a vocal audition?

I am a singer preparing for a call back for a big show that is very vocal demanding. Then part I am being considered for requires belting, which I can do once I am properly, but it can be very strenuous when not warmed up correctly. I'm afraid that if I am not warmed up properly I will lose my voice or my voice will give out during my audition.

Help with preparing my voice for hitting high notes?

I'm a rapper so I'm not a seasoned singer, however I need to hit some high notes in my upcoming recording session. I smoke a vape (to quit cigarettes) which I know is not the best for my voice, but its better than cigarettes [I will quit altogether eventually]. Anyways, some days I have a problem hitting those high notes. After a warm up I'm usually fine but I want to know if there are any ways to make this process easier. Thanks in advance!. I have tried: Warm up vocals. I think it was caused by: My long term smoking and vape smoking

How can I sing clearly throughout the whole service as a vocal leader without having my voice failing me in a quirky Y?

Normally, when I'm leading a service at our church, my voice does not last, I end up struggling, it fails to come out clearly and smoothly, it will be more like varnishing. Please, help! I have not eaten anything as I lead the service and it really fusses me and at times I drink warm water or vinegar to smooth my voice

What can help me sing a high note for beginners? and does honey lemon water help?

We have to sing in less than 2 hours, and the song includes high notes (titanium). So if you could help us please. Thank you for your time. We're in high school so we can't really make something right but we can do small things to help. Do you have any suggestions?
