Voice Problems from Ulcers
Date: January 26, 2013
Since my senior year of high school I have been having problems with my singing voice. Originally, it was that my tonsils were causing me pain to sing then I got them out and they found ulcers on my vocal chords. I went through about 6 months of vocal therapy and several reflux medications till the otolaryngologist said I was fine to sing again. I am now in my junior year of a music education program and my voice professor gets frustrated with me because I can’t sing above a high A on a good day and I am a soprano. I have worked and tried every exercise I can find and have been taught to sing these notes but my voice just cracks out or stops completely when I get high A. My teacher has told me that she won’t accept that I cannot sing those notes because there’s no reason I should not be able to. Does anyone have any advice on how I might be able to build up those notes? I have been back to the otolaryngologist and they have said that there are not any problems.
Any advice will be greatly appreciated.
