As a singing voice specialist in a medical practice, I have found the young singer with the injured voice to be both a challenging and rewarding type of patient to work with. While this patient group is a small portion of our total patient population, over the past 11 years, I have had the opportunity to work with numerous young singers between the ages of 5 and 17. Each of these patients have presented with a wide variety of vocal pathologies. For the purpose of this article, I selected and reviewed the histories of 13 young singers between the ages of 10 and 17, all of whom presented in our office with complaints of dysphonia. I would like to share a few of the insights I have gained in working with this unique group of vocal athletes.
