All voice students should incorporate vocal rest into the their days. Your child's notebook will indicate the amount of time and whether that should be all at once or can be broken up during each day. Remember, vocal rest means NO NOISE! No humming, play sounds and definitely no whispering. Try to find quiet activities your child can do during this time (reading, homework, etc) or make a game of it with the rest of the family. Keep track of progress on the daily chart found in your child's notebook.
