Acoustic Analysis of Classically Trained Western Singers
Background and Objectives
: Classical singers are capable of masking abnormalities due to their high level of training and may present with apparent technical deficits rather than with obvious dysfunction. Therefore, some variations from expected normal laryngeal behavior may be present in trained classical singers. Consequently it is important for otolaryngologist to obtain a baseline assessment of their laryngeal function.
Materials and Method
s : Acoustic measurement including strobovideolaryngoscopy from 50 classically trained singers was done for this study, which was compared with the data from 20 untrained adults.
: This study showed that 50-healthy asymptomatic classical singers revealed an incidence of 50% abnormal strobovideolaryngoscopic findings, but their acoustic data was within normal limit despite the abnormal laryngeal findings. Therefore the author recommends that the classical singers need objective voice analysis and their baseline data should be used for the accurate diagnosis of the cause of voice dysfunction In classical singer whose baseline laryngeal behavior may be unusual.
