Voice Changes are not Just for Teenagers

Active Aging and the singing Voice 

As we enter the Third Age* of our lives, we experience changes with our voices. Our larynx and lungs experience the same aging issues that our legs and back do, and we may notice breathy tone, larger vibrato, narrower range, new breaks, less stamina, and less flexibility. Though the fountain of youth remains a mystery, we can offer practical exercises and medical insights to keep you singing into and through the Third Age. 

Educate yourself about what you can do to guide your voice into and through the Third Age. Professional singer/educators from the Madison Choral Project along with medical professionals will lead three sessions to help you navigate these changes and keep you singing for life. 

* Referred to by some as the "Golden Years of Adulthood," the Third Age is the period of time between middle age and old age, when people generally have time available and physical ability to pursue interests and activities
