Febha Mary Chacko | Dr. Satish Kumaraswamy [4] | Muhammed Ashkar CH

Abstract: Voice plays an important role in human communication. Voice is created when air from the lungs flows through the vocal folds in the larynx (voice box) causing the vocal folds to vibrate. The ability to talk normally is impacted by voice abnormalities. Vocal abuse occurs when the vocal cords are strained or damaged. Abuse of the voice includes excessive talking, yelling, clearing the throats frequently. Vocal hygiene refers to practices that help to maintain a healthy, powerful voice over the course of the life. This study contributes to our understanding the vocal hygiene awareness between Ustad and Khatib. In orderto thoroughly assess the awareness of the vocal hygiene, the study used questionnaires consist of 25 closed set questionnaires administered on Ustad and Khatib. According to the statistical analysis, Khatib had a stronger awareness of vocal hygiene than Ustad. Both have minimal level of awareness about vocal hygiene and they need to be educated.
