Vocology for Singers

We educate singers on how their vocal structures work, how vocal disorders develop, how to best utilize their voice, and more. By adding a scientific and medical perspective to singing, we hope to prevent vocal disorders in singers and allow their voices to flourish!

Our Mission

It is estimated that 3% to 9% of people in the United States have voice disorders. Singers are often unfamiliar with the science behind singing and unaware of the potential harm they could cause to their voice. By educating singers on the anatomy of the structures related to singing, potential voice disorders, and how to best utilize and take care of their voice, we hope to prevent future voice problems. We offer free, reliable, practical workshops and resources to educate and train singers through a scientific and medical perspective.


What We Do

We provide free resources and workshops for singers, professional speakers, and anybody else who wants to learn more about their voice.  We've partnered with respected otolaryngologists, vocal coaches, and voice specialists to give science-based, reliable, and practical workshops to inform and train singers. Workshops cover a range of topics including the science of singing and vocal health to help prevent voice disorders and teach singers how to best utilize their voices. 

Free resources and original animations are provided to educate and inform everyone on the science of singing, anatomy and physiology of vocal cords, proper vocal care, and voice disorders.

Fundraisers are organized to support research on vocology and the American Academy of Otolaryngology- Head and Neck Surgery.

Meet the Founder

Karly Chan

Karly Chan is a sophomore at Harvard University. She founded VOCO because of her interest in both science/medicine and singing. She hopes that VOCO will help singers appreciate the scientific/medical perspective on singing so that they can use it to improve their voices and prevent potential vocal disorders.

We compile the best and most relevant videos and articles to help singers educate themselves on topics related to vocal health and the science of singing.




We organize monthly fundraisers to raise money for the American Academy of Otolaryngology-Head and Neck Surgery and to fund cutting-edge research in laryngology.
