I have enlarged tonsils for a long time. I remember a doctor telling me I had to get them out when I was 7 years old, but my parents didn't sign me up for the surgery so I didn't go to it. I also remember that one night (couple of years ago) I woke up choking but I never thought about the reason why that happened. Now I'm 16 years old, and I go to a choir. I sing in alto, because the lady who holds the choir told me I sound nice when I'm singing low. But I am a natural mezzo-soprano, and alto doesn't fit me. Does the tonsils hold the guilt for that? That woman also said I must "open" my throat when I sing but I can't (I don't know how). My voice always sound "closed" when I sing, even though I could sing high. Also, my voice is, when I sing alto, always kind of hoarse...
I would like to sign up this year to a Music School for solo-singing, but the test is in April, and I don't want to have a strange throat when I go to it
And also, I very often clear my throat which is very disturbing for a singer.
So I thought about removing tonsils before it. What kind of consequences it will have on my voice (will it recover until April?), and will I stop singing nicely low, once they are removed? Will it somehow change my range voice? How would singing feel after it?
Please, I beg you to answer me, as this is one of the most important things in my life...
Thank you very much.
