Screaming Damage

How long does it take for bad damage to set in? Because I want to demo 2 or 3 songs for my band and I'll probably scream in them to show the singer how I want it but I don't want to screw up my voice as I have 2 semesters of Chorale coming up soon.

Don't scream unless you have prepared yourself for it. I love to scream, but as soon as you feel pain, the damage is done. 2 or 3 songs shouldn't do to much, but drink lots of water and use the advice in the vocal advice thread. But as soon as you feel pain, stop.

Yeah, I've practiced a bit and I haven't felt outright pain. However, I've had some tickling which is bad enough. I've found some ways, though, that tickle and some that don't so I'll stick with those that don't.

This may not work for everyone, but I like to drink anything carbonated before and after I scream. The bubbles seem to soothe my throat so I don't get pain.

Well, when I was practicing it I just drank a lot of water and used the mic to my advantage.

Then you're all set. There's really not a lot more you can do. The only really important thing to remember (like I mentioned before) is to stop when it starts to hurt.

a lot of people tell you not to breathe when you scream, but i have to disagree, the more air you are pusing from your diaphragm the less your vocal chords have to do thefore less damage...

Bah, I said screw it to screaming. They'll just have to hear it without vocals. I value my singing voice too much.

Underoath doesn't. Spencer is really screaming. There's no way you could get a tone like his unless you really scream.

her website says that she's worked with Underoath...just because she's worked with them doesn't mean she's changed Spencer's vocal technique, though I couldn't imagine any decent vocal coach just saying, "oh yeah...keep screaming". I'm really curious about the DVD, however I'm not curious enough to buy the DVD.

I admit, I'm curious too. But I don't want to find it to be a waste of time that teaches me stuff I already know.

the Conan video is interesting. It looks like what she teaches is face/mouth shaping, breathing technique and using the sound system to it's maximum capability

I'll look into it. I could use a little help with my breathing techniques.
