"The results of the current study suggest that a tapered rehearsal schedule may be beneficial for some performers in improving vocal quality, at least as measured by postperformance vocal function. The participant who derived the most benefit from the tapered schedule was an individual who exhibited significant tissue changes during the preperformance exam and thus required additional rest and healing time." (Gorham-Rowan, Paoletti, and Morris, 2017)
Researches studied choirs who tapered rehearsal time by ten percent (10%) each week, up to thirty percent (30%), for three weeks prior to the performance. Additional research should be conducted to explore rehearsal duration and the correlating effects upon performance.
