I am new here and I've taken singing lessons for a year with another instructor. I'm considering taking with Ken soon.
My question is-
My voice is naturally quite loud. I don't try to be loud, I don't push to be loud, it just is. Both with singing as well as speaking.
Is it harmful to allow my voice to be loud?
If you were a couple of rooms away (doors open) from your sibling and you wanted to speak to them from your room- I can do that without "yelling". I can just consciously think about the distance, and my voice gets louder without a shouty approach.
Again, I am not straining, tensing up or pushing to be loud, it just comes out loud. I can be quiet if I'm trying to, but it's just natural to be louder above what most would call a normal speaking voice.
I've been told I'm just loud-voiced like Grace Slick haha
I know that forcing and straining can cause nodules or polyps, but what about unstrained loudness?
I would appreciate all thoughts and opinions on this. If hate to damage my voice just because something seems to come naturally to me at first.
