The Abstract

Abigail Moran

After the mic is dropped and curtain closes performers want to leave a great impression on the audience. There isn’t usually a great amount of thought given to other things that could be left behind by years of performances; things like vocal damage. Before a performance, singers will spend countless hours preparing their music, making sure every aspect is perfect. It is easy get caught up focusing on certain performance aspects, but forget to maintain healthy singing techniques. Singing with improper technique can not only make singers tired over time, but also cause permanent vocal damage. By using research to support and present various techniques with diversified repertoire, correct singing techniques will be displayed in many genres with a lecture recital.
