Poor technique leads to (permanent) vocal damage

Straining the singing voice, for instance by using belting without proper coordination, can lead to forcing, which in turn can cause vocal deterioration, known as fatigue of the vocal cords. Straining the voice can lead the development of vocal nodules, a form of scarring on the vocal cords caused by strenuous or abusive voice practices.

Some numbers about vocal injury:

Approximately 7.5 million people in the United States have trouble using their voices.

As many as 56.5% of student singers report a current voice problem. That figure, however, may actually underestimate the true extent of voice problems in student singers, as demonstrated by clinically significant laryngoscopic findings among asymptomatic singing students, says singing voice specialist and speech-language pathologist, Aaron Ziegler, MA, CCC-SL

But professional singers are at risk, too: 46 percent of singers experience voice problems in their career, as this study in the Journal of Voice stated

Some famous singers known to have developed vocal nodules are Luciano Pavarotti, Whitney Houston, Mariah Carey, Freddie Mercury, and Joss Stone. Singers known to have their vocal nodules surgically treated are Justin Timberlake, Sam Smith, Tove Lo, Adele, Björk, Shirley Manson, Keith Urban, John Mayer and Rod Stewart. Julie Andrews is well known for her singing voice being permanently damaged by the surgery. Elton John is notable for having vocal surgery, as it caused his voice to significantly deepen.  

Research by Massachusetts General Hospital which analysed a group of elite singers who suffered vocal cord damage, with a total of 240 Grammy award nominations among them, showed that 90% of those injuries was the result of vocal trauma and lack of technique. 

Contemporary commercial music and musical theater first-year students were found to have more vocal fold pathologies compared with classical students in a study led by researchers at the University of Miami Miller School of Medicine.

The solution: start building a good vocal technique

 Technique adjustments can prevent injury and lead to improved endurance and stamina; and the singer can sing and vocally feel dramatically better as those adjustments are made. These adjustments can result in huge changes for the singer, according to Dr. Reena Gupta, Director of the Division of Voice and Laryngology at the Osborne Head & Neck Institute

Testimonials from students


"I have had vocal lessons with Irene for many years. Together, we worked on my technique and we made some great recordings. She teaches you very well howto practise, how to train posture, resonance and breathing. ... I have advanced tremendously as a singer and a person, she coached me right through my blockages in some very difficult songs, I wouldn't have dared to sing wihout her. I came so much further than I ever thought I could come! But most of all, she gave me back the joy and confidence in singing and performing. I am so grateful! If you are looking for an experienced, enthusiastic and super knowledgeable teacher, I can strongly recommend Irene" 

Romy Muste
Professional Pop/Rock/Classical singer

"I have had vocal lessons from Irene for so many years now, and I learned so much from her. We spoke about everything in her useful lessons: breath support, technique, sound colour... Irene not only lifts her students up to a higher level by a very personal approach, she is also an enormously sweet and inspiring woman. She is flexible and enthusiastic and I attended our sessions with so much joy. Thank you!

Manouk Tjassens

Frequently asked questions

This course is developed to get even the most advanced singer to sing with even more freedom and health. It therefore features solutions for all problems singers might encounter. Because of the clear way of the teaching lectures, the extensive library of vocal exercises, the step-by-step structure and the completeness of the course on really all topics, it is a perfect course for beginning vocalists as well. 

I have been a vocal teacher for a few decades and have been busy creating this course for almost 8 years. It has a clear, step-by-step structure that will make you fully understand vocal technique. In tutorials, you would have to search long to find the answer that you were looking for, and you will have no structure. My course is also based on a proven, academic learning model that guarantees that you will make a transformation and that you reach your goal: to master your voice, both physically and mentally. I have seen this in even exerienced vocalists that I have helped, that were still struggling with clarity and the lack of a solid system that they can always rely on. They often said that my lessons finally were the puzzle piece they had been looking for for a long time.

This course is suited for all genres and styles, because it aims at healthy vocal technique. The song break downs are songs of musical theatre, pop, jazz, chansons, classical and rock. I am a trained classical and musical theatre singer and I noticed that my greater comprehension of breathing, high notes and head voice, for example, is an advantage in my teaching.
