Thread Name: Deteriorating voice
Subject: RE: Deteriorating voice
I stopped singing for may years and found when I started again (fairly recently) that my throat became sore if I sang for any length of time and my range had reduced
In the 60s/70s I had been taught a series of voice exercises (basically 4 vowel-like sounds and a number of short singing exercises) so I started on them
Coupled with relaxations, I find I can sing as well as I ever did - probably better
Now, in my 70s I have little problems in singing whatever I choose
Exercise and avoiding strain does the trick
