Sugar Notch, PA (PressExposure) February 18, 2012 -- It appears that everyone today is taking singing lessons so they can be the next "American Idol " or "X-Factor Champion". After all, winning one of these and many other competitions can put you in the running for an extremely lucrative singing career. But when it comes to taking singing lessons, it is critically important that you find a vocal teacher that not only is an expert at exactly how to train your voice correctly, but has verified testimonials and a great reputation in the singing community.
Master Singing Coach Ken Tamplin of KTVA (Ken Tamplin Vocal Academy), lauded by several reputable singing professionals as one of the finest vocal coaches on the planet today, has witnessed shameful results that were caused by singing teachers who have no idea as to the proper techniques and methods for preparing and training singing students.
"I've known people who started with very healthy singing voices that took vocal instruction from singing instructors they failed to check out before taking the training, " said Ken Tamplin. "A lot of them ended up ruining their voices. It's absolutely grievous!"
The accounts of people dangerously hurting their singing voice due to unsupportable vocal training is on the rise. Like a girl who already had a exceptional singing capacity. She moved to New York to pursue a career on the Broadway stage and was quick to employ a voice coach. She never looked into the background of the coach and started a rigorous training program that, over the course of three months, shredded her singing instrument. It's been over 2 years now, and she has her voice back but it will never be like it was. She had slaved her entire life for a singing career only to have this singing teacher crush it in 3 months because he never really did know what he was teaching. She was absolutely dejected.
In fact, there appears to be a dramatic rise in the number of appointments made with voice doctors for multiple vocal problems, many which can be traced back to counterfactual singing instruction. Accounts of strained vocal cords, dangerous swelling, nodules and throat ruptures are commonplace. Several of these victims related that they were told by their singing teacher their voice would feel stressed for a short period of time while the singing teacher trained them.
"That is absolutely ridiculous," states Ken Tamplin. "When practicing singing lessons or online singing lessons, if you employ proper singing techniques and methods, there should never be any straining or discomfort at all."
He was also quick to point out that some of the blame may rest on the student. "Some people need to be a music sensation, like, yesterday. They hurry to improve their singing voice and ability as hurriedly as possible and expend themselves beyond what their voice can tolerate because they're moving extremely fast in the process. However, any creditable singing instructor would immediately recognize this and educate the student as to the harm they are causing their vocal instrument if they push too hard."
