How to avoid losing your singing voice forever

The greatest fear a singer faces is the horror of losing your voice.  It is the thing we avoid the most and unfortunately the reason why so many celebrities flock to Ron Anderson. The natural ability to sing is truly a biological ability. Now whether you can keep the voice and control it, depends on your level of training and understanding exactly how the voice works and employing the musculature that it demands from the first note you some, to the very last! 

Can you lose the ability to sing?

There have been many singers plagued with this question and even Doctors have told them that they couldn’t sing.  Tom Keifer was told he would have to leave his career even after 5 vocal surgeries.  He trained with Ron and just recently released a new album. 

Can you lose the ability to song? No. I don’t think you lose the ability, what you do is create irreversible damage by continuously using bad technique and opting for multiple surgeries without treating the real problem, which is a lack of control over your instrument and understanding how it is meant to work! 

Can you lose your singing voice by not practicing?

This is a great question. When you don’t practice and keep.your voice trained, you don’t lose your singing voice, you lose the agility and flexibility your voice requires from you when you sing. You might feel  ”out of shape” but it is something you can come back from. All you need us training again and consistency!

Is singing a skill or a talent?

Singing is a talent, for sure, but the art of singing is a skill you must train and keep working on throughout your entire career.  See, our instrument is biological, which means that how we are feeling affects how we sing.  Making sure that you know how to sing during physiological changes is essential to understanding your voice and mastering it’s skill.  Also knowing when NOT to sing, is a skill most professionals develop.  We encourage all singers to listen to their body and honor the limit if there is one that day.  Being prepared and warming up your voice will help on that journey, but knowing when the voice says ”please rest” is even more important than all other skills!
