    Any singing teachers got any tips on how to deal with hayfever?

    I’ve got a few students suffering and not really sure how to advise them as I’ve (touchwood) never experienced hayfever! Apart from telling them to not take antihistamines right before a performance or lesson that’s all I know…

    In fact I didn’t even know you’re not supposed to take antihistamines before singing!

    As a singer/performer/tutor,a very experienced tutor of classical opera I was lucky enough to study with,told me a sweep of vaseline in both nasal passages traps the pollen ,dust etc which then cannot affect the voice…take it out with a good blow before working, performing in your field……IT WORKS
