Ruby Boots’ Savvy Seven

How has your music practice changed over time? I think the most prominent thing that has changed is my vocal practice, about 8 or 9 years ago I was diagnosed with vocal nodules and had to take close to three years off singing, I went through the very arduous process of getting rid of them naturally without an operation for fear of it scaring my vocal chords, I was left with a polyp on my vocal folds and had non evasive laser surgery after all of that. I used to spend a lot of time learning how not to damage my voice with technique lessons and speech therapy, now after years of working on improving my technique I am able to practice how to use my voice the way I want to and instead of dreading my vocal lessons, after everything I’ve done with them I now get super excited about learning more about the voice, its a total 180 and the rabbit hole I dive into, learning more and more about it is now a blast.
