HPU Music Department Hosts Vocal Clinic

02.1.2011

HIGH POINT, N.C., Feb. 1, 2011 –  The Department of Music at High Point University recently hosted a vocal health clinic featuring Leda Scearce, performing voice specialist and director of Performing Voice Programs at Duke University Medical Center Voice Care.

“For all performers, it is very important to remember that you are your instrument,” says Scearce. “Other instruments can be replaced, but you only get one set of vocal cords.”

The clinic taught strategies for maintaining long-term vocal health and efficient singing techniques to singers, actors, teachers, coaches and public speakers. Specific health strategies discussed included diet, hydration, warming up, dealing with sickness and avoiding risky situations.

“The music department hopes that this clinic will help its students achieve their vocal goals and enable their voices to last for a lifetime,” says Scott MacLeod, faculty member of the HPU Department of Music.
