Welcome to December!!!
This is our first VO Tip of the month!
SOME THINGS TO AVOID
Dairy products such as milk and cheese can cause sinuses to congest. Stay away from theses products when you know you have a VO job.
Also, clearing your throat with a hard and raspy cough might hurt your vocal chords. If you need to do it, you should try progressing from a gentle hum into a slow cough and always be sure to vocalize and put some air across your vocal cords whenever you cough.
Avoid eating before a session, food can cause your mouth to salivate more even hours after eating.
Our last thing to avoid today is to not cover up throat pain. Doing so will not improve your performance and might damage your vocal cords. If you feel you cannot perform you should advise your agent or client so that alternative plans can be made.
