1 pm - 4 pm: Voice Care for Interpreters

Singers, actors, lawyers, teachers, interpreters, public speakers and broadcast journalists have one thing in common: They rely on their voice. Whether in a concert hall, a theater, sound stage or in court, professionals whose livelihood depends on their voice must take special care of their instrument. Voice disorders are conditions that impair the production of speech to affect quality, pitch or intensity of speech sounds. When someone becomes hoarse because of overuse of the voice or an illness such as bronchitis, he/she is experiencing the most common type of voice disorder. Voice is produced when air passes by the vocal cords, causing them to vibrate and produce sound. Voice disorders usually are caused by problems with the vibration of the vocal cords.

Vocal abuse, the straining or overuse of the voice, is a typical voice impairment. Vocal abuse can create many voice disorders, including vocal cord nodules and polyps. Using appropriate vocal techniques is an effective strategy to maintain interpreter’s vocal cords healthy. This class will focus in providing interpreters, tools and strategies they can use to keep their voice strong and healthy. A Board Certified Music Therapist with more than 15 years of experience will conduct this class that is fun and creative.
