95 The Singer and the Otolaryngologist
On the Art of Singing

Richard Miller

Oxford University Press

This chapter emphasizes the importance of early consultation between the singer and the otolaryngologist to ensure the former's vocal health. One of the goals of good vocal pedagogy is to induce healthy vocalism through nondestructive techniques. When there is a suspicion that the less-than-clear vocal sounds the teacher is hearing are not the result of a cold or of temporary fatigue, there is no hesitancy in packing the student singer off to the ENT. Most otolaryngologists are eager to enter a professional relationship with professional voice users and teachers of singing. Medical specialists are pleased to deal with the “classically” trained singing instrument, and they welcome the cooperation of the voice teacher in working through the difficulties the student singer may be encountering. This chapter explains how singers can establish a good professional relationship with otolaryngologists.
