Last weekend, I had the privilege of attending the Midwest Voice Conference on August 9, at the University of Illinois at Chicago, an event sponsored in part by Voices.com.

Prepare to be educated en mass! I'll be covering two lectures each day in this week dedicated to protecting your asset, in other words, your voice.


Midwest Voice Conference : Protecting Your Asset

As a delegate at the conference who represented the voice over industry, I'm excited to relay that the Midwest Voice Conference offered a wealth of information that I can share with you about taking care of your voice and the assessment and treatment of common disorders that may affect the voice, presenting articles centering in on areas of interest pertaining to voice actors and voice acting.


In the coming days you can look forward to:

๏ Current Methods in Singing Voice Rehabilitation
๏ Diagnostic Evaluation and Medical Treatment of Adult Patients with GERD
๏ Do Singers Have to Be Fat?
๏ Pharyngeal Voice: Description and Application to Pop Music Styles
๏ Rhinology and the Voice
๏ Neurological Diseases Associated with Voice Disorders
๏ Finding your Authentic Singing Voice
๏ Common Voice Disorders and Preventative Care


At first glance, it may look like this conference was meant only for singers... not at all, I assure you!

Coming from a musical background (I have my Bachelor of Musical Arts, Instrument Voice), this conference was helpful for anyone who uses their voice professionally or teaches others how to use and care for their voice for singing, speaking, speech therapy, voice over, and professional coaching.

Earlier in this article, I mentioned that I'd be writing from a voice acting perspective, so even if you're still not convinced that the above topics affect you and your voice over career, I hope to show you how each of these lectures offers valuable information and understanding that you can apply to your voice and its professional use.


Gratitude

Before we start the coverage, I would like to thank many people who made my day at the conference particularly memorable and enjoyable:

Thank you especially to Dr. H Steven Sims, Colleen Kenost, Adello Purnell, Janet Hotch, Simon Kaulius and Janine Sacco.


Our first and second articles following this introduction are right around the bend. I hope you find these insights helpful and perhaps life-changing.

Best wishes,

Stephanie
