Abstract

The paper describes the findings of a self-completion questionnaire survey that was designed to investigate the voice use and voice problems of a group of qualified aerobics instructors (n=48). The respondents reported a high incidence of voice problems (52 per cent). The impact of voice problems on their work was also reported. The study suggests that the number of hours of instructing per week, years of instructing experience and reported tension levels are associated with reported voice problems. It also indicates a need for more adequate voice training and advice on voice care for this group of professionals who are at risk for voice problems
