Singing while sick - tips

Sometimes students say they are "too sick to sing" because they have a cold, and they let their practice slide.  Even when you are struck by the common cold, try 2 things:

  • mental practice.  Imagine yourself singing the pieces, see how many mistakes you make.  Do it in real time.  This helps, believe it or not!
  • slow, low, gentle warmups like humming, oo, ee.  Use only the easiest part of your range and concentrate on getting clarity in your tone.
