Prévention des troubles de la voix : état des lieux des comportements et des connaissances des chanteurs amateurs face à la voix

Abstract : Amateur singers represent a population at risk for voice disorders. However, since they’re just amateur singers, they didn’t receive proper vocal coaching. We then wondered if amateur singers were capable of taking good care of their voice on a daily basis in order to prevent any voice disorders. The very first objective of the thesis was to make an evaluation of life habits, the practise of singing and the overall singers’ knowledge about voice and singing in general. To do so, we reached out to several choir directors and proposed their singers and backing singers to take a short survey that would allow us to gather intel on the daily habits that could have an impact on their voice, and their overall knowledge of the voice. We then conducted a statistical analysis to identify which variables could have impacted the answers of the survey. The variables used were : the duration of their experience with singing, their type of practise, if they followed any kind of vocal coaching and at last their autonomous learning of knowledge of this field (the voice). The results showed a lack of required knowledge to take good care of the voice. Moreover, we concluded that the simple fact of inquiring autonomously on this field made a difference on the results. The input of a vocal hygiene program can thus be very interesting for them in order to overcome this lack of knowledge.
