Watch the video above to discover why your voice can stop working and the best ways to keep it healthy.

Have you ever been singing or doing drills when suddenly your voice cuts out? The air is there but the sound isn’t as if someone hit the mute button on your voice box. There are two main reasons why this occurs and I want to share them with you and give you some helpful tips on what you can do to fix the issue.

The first main reason why this occurs is because there might be little bumps on your vocal folds. This can be dangerous because over time these little bumps can turn into vocal nodules. Nodules may eventually occur when you do two things: smoking and by singing incorrectly (vocal abuse). Watch the video for a complete explanation on how vocal abuse and smoking may lead to vocal nodules, which in turn will limit your range.

The second main reason why your voice may cut out, is because of phlegm in your throat. It is important to strongly consider the things you do daily that can contribute to your body over-producing phlegm. Watch the video for a complete explanation on the many things we put into our body that can produce phlegm.  My gift to you are some exercises and tips that will help you to prevent your voice from cutting out on you, and give you proper vocal health and maintenance.
