To the Editor We thank Clarós et al1 for their study investigating the association between singing in a children’s choir and the development of voice disorders. The authors reported a significantly greater number of voice disorders in nonsingers compared with singers, thus emphasizing the importance of introducing conscientious voice care in nonsinging children. However, we have identified several notable limitations in this study.
