Hey Lily, would love to hear a recording of this so I can get a feel for what’s going on.
Is it happening across the entirety of her range or is it worse on some specific notes?

Vocal health and removal of ‘hoarse-ness’ (Singing Teachers)
Hey all 🙂
I wanted to start a feed discussing vocal health and how to fix certain sounds that seemingly sound unhealthy in the singing voice.
A student of mine has developed a hoarseness over the last 2 months and I’m at a bit of a loose end in terms of what else I can recommend for her. I have suggested the straw technique to encourage vocal fold closure as I thought it may have been lazy vocal folds that were allowing air to seep through whilst she was singing creating a little hiss. I have also suggested vocal fry but she’s still creating a hissy/raspy sort of sound whilst singing. She has a very clear tone naturally and comes from a classical background and we’re both really baffled by this.

All the best xxxx
