Most people recommend that you have six to eight 8oz. glasses of water per day. If you’re under that, you might be putting your vocal health at risk.
Warm Up Your Voice
Warm up correctly before singing. It’s also a good idea to warm up before a speech or other extended vocal use.
Pain Is Bad
Pain doesn’t equal gain. Pain means something is wrong. Don’t sing if you hurt. You can make an injury or irritation worse.
Hoarseness usually means swelling. Selling of delicate vocal tissues makes them more susceptible to further injury. Don’t sin when you are hoarse. Get well.
