I have just started the course after years of misplaced money going to vocal coaches, who I'm now starting to realise were sub-par (as I'm sure most of you did!).
My question is this: After completing the basic warm-up, I have some tenderness / soreness in the top - back of my throat, I guess its around the uvula as opposed to the feeling of "scratching" the throat (which I have experienced before on one too many occasions).
I am able to continue singing, even with this feeling and, therefore, I am wondering whether it is just me getting used to singing "properly" and using a region that I haven't used before / I'm out of practice and need to just keep going, or if I am genuinely causing myself some harm.
Any advice would be greatly appreciated, and I'm sorry if this question has been asked before, but I haven't been able to find it.
