The Speaking Voice
"Voice lessons are not just for singing: they are for all aspects relating to one's voice, including speaking. Learn to take proper care of your voice."
A tired speaking voice is something that many people have experienced at one time or another. Still, the same rules which govern good
singing are equally important in speaking, and if one experiences chronic vocal fatigue it is often the result of the overuse or misuse of
one's voice. Of course, these are not the only reasons one may experience problems, although they are often a factor: Stress, diet, lack of
exercise, lifestyle and- of course- underlying pathology are just several of many other explanations for one's tired voice, and it is never a
bad thing to consult a medical professional if one feels in any way that there might be the possibility that illness is a cause of one's vocal
Nevertheless, an ounce of prevention is worth a pound of cure, and this is especially true where one's voice is concerned. As in any activity, speaking is heavily influenced by habit, and if one does not speak properly then such use contributes not only to the origination of problems, but also exacerbates them once they develop. Many (though not all) vocal problems, however, can be mitigated, if not completely corrected, through the utilization of the same techniques that are employed by professional singers: good posture, breath control, efficient phonation, and an awareness of not just how one's voice works, but also what problems an individual has that are unique to him. Practicing good speaking will lead to new habits that replace the old- those which either caused the problem in the first place, or prolonged them due to the simple fact that they didn't address the root cause of the problem in the first place, giving rise to even more difficulties.
