My friend is facing loss of vocal range when singing. What shall she do?

My friend is a singer. She is suffering from loss of vocal range when singing. It has been a week and there is no sign of improvement. What shall she do?

Has she been ill?  I'm assuming she knows how to properly warm up the vocal cords.  I would absolutely consult with a physician on this and do so sooner rather than later.  Let us know what they say!

I would suggest an ENT evaluation. Singers are prone to vocal fold pathologies. She would want to rule out vocal fold nodules or other problems. She would need a doctor referral to a speech pathologist who provides voice therapy, which offers treatment. There are some articles on good vocal hygiene to try in the meantime.
