Singing Through Menopause – Reactions and Responses

Posted: March 8, 2014
This survey attempts to explore the kinds of vocal changes female singers experience as a result of menopause and how they react to these changes. Questions address specific changes in various aspects of vocal production, before, during, and after menopause, singers’ emotional responses to these changes, and the practical steps taken, if any, in response to these changes. The survey should take 10-15 minutes to complete. Singers who have gone through menopause are invited to participate. All participation is entirely anonymous, and will be greatly appreciated. The results of the survey will be included in an article about singing through menopause. Thank you so much for your time and interest. .
