Interactive videos on how to exercise your voice

Voices convey passion and excitement; voices can convey anything, whether it's a feeling, a place, or an idea. Changes in your voice form from aging cause the vocal fold muscles to weaken or lose muscle strength, making it harder to speak. This increased effort to talk causes the voice to tire more quickly. . So it is important as we age to continue to speak and sing out loud and proud to exercise those all-important voice muscles.

The Irish Institute of Music and Song in partnership with Fingal Age Friendly have produced 4 interactive videos demonstrating fun ways for you to exercise your voice on a daily basis.

So grab some friends or your family and Sing along and have fun while you exercise

Give it a go!
