  1. Thanks so much for all the information and knowledge, Mark 😛 It is great
    how high notes help to reduce swelling. ^.^

    Well Mark, thanks for the content, the best I’ve seen on the net, so thanks
    for that. I was actually searching for: Why am I able to produce lower
    notes when I sing with a cold but can’t produce them normally. My bottom
    note is usually F and today I can go to Db. Any info would be great.
    Thanks again.?

  3. I am having constant throat issues…itchy throat raw throat and feels like
    super dry and little lubrication. I also have sinus headaches several times
    a week. I sing professionally for about 5 to 6 hours a week so I need help.
    I take antihistamines on some days when I don’t sing and I think think may
    be worsening it. Is there a product out there that I could take up on stage
    with me or take before a performance to aid in lubrication? ?

  4. Hey Mark

    Just thought I’d comment as I’ve recently discovered your videos. Your
    videos are the easiest to understand by far and delivered in an easy to
    visualise way.

    I love singing, or at least I used to.. I write music and love music, but a
    mixture of allergies and medical conditions and a lack of vocal coaching
    make it difficult for me. I get sore throats from the allergies and
    medications anyway, but I think my singing technique is the main problem. I
    cannot relax and overthink too much. Relaxing my throat muscles while
    singing, especially as I climb up my already poor range, seems impossible
    and im not sure if im breathing correctly.. I feel i am, im not lifting the
    shoulders.. But its hard to know if someone isnt there to correct you..

    Maybe its because I’m thinking of singing as too much of a different thing
    to speaking. I have excellent ideas and write many songs on my guitar, but
    feel my voice wont do what I want it to 🙁

    Regardless, Your videos are excellent! I just wish I could have one on one
    lessons! ?

    It’s getting to that season again where lots of singers are suffering from
    #allergies, here’s some sound advice on #singing if you’re struggling!?

  6. Hope Benedict

    Thank you for this! I’ve considered giving up singing because I’m pretty
    much never symptom-free, but I’m going to give this a try.?
