    Hi ! I have a big problem it started for me about a month and a half ago.

    Every time I sing I start to panic I suddenly have a hard time breathing properly and releasing myself I feel like I am constantly in tension.

    It got to the point that when I listen to songs and the singer starts to raise tones I feel like I have tension as if I am singing.

    So my question is basically how can I be calm and confident and not get into tension as it destroys my voice - it hurts faster.

    I was sick from about half a month ago and since then my voice wears out quickly and it hurts me even though I did not sing for a week and a half (while I was sick) what do you recommend me to do?

    Hi, Malki! I'm sorry you're going through this. I encourage you to really take it slow and get yourself used to singing in an easy range. No extreme high or low notes, no long sustains, nothing challenging. Keep it easy until your body relearns that singing is okay to do!

    Straw warmups are excellent for voice rehab. Here's a gentle warmup for you, too.
