When you’re sick, using your voice can be painful, and even dangerous. I want you to know that It’s okay to be sick, to put your feet up, to watch trashy TV, to not think about your voice beyond resting it. But if you are sick, and you’re scared that you’re losing time, that you’re falling behind, that your performance is coming up and you’re just going to faceplant because you’re not prepared, there is always something you can do. I’ve developed some practices that will help you engage with the material you’re trying to learn in a meaningful way, even when your vocal instrument is sidelined by illness.
