Many people have opposing opinions about how whispering can relate to and influence an individual’s vocalization.
I’ll scientifically and unilaterally explain this.
I have 22 categories that influence breathing and vocalization. Let’s try to figure out who is right.(17)
Part 17 is “Whispering”
Some people might say, “Whispering is good for the voice because use it doesn’t use the throat as much as speaking.” But… others might say, “Nope, because you actually harden your throat when whispering. Which does involve an effort.”
Regarding whispering, as I have previously mentioned: please refer here ↓
Could a whispering voice make the muscles or voice become hypertonic?
Note: Referencing a book about phonetics, it states, “Whispering promotes hypertonic vocalization.” However, I have encountered knowledgeable and experienced vocal coaches who encourage, “If you can learn how to use whispering skillfully, your singing will be better.”
I think both are correct!
