The following is copied from the "F A Q" section of "Singing for snorers" This course would not help you if you have snored since childhood, but otherwise it might be worth giving it a go. It seems to be working for my. I am into my third month with it!..and I also use a nose thingy (NOZOVENT) at night which I think reduces snoring. It certainly helps me to breathe but you don't seem to have any problem with your sleep, so I wouldn't think you would be able to get CPAP. As far as I know it is only prescribed for Sleep Apnoea.
People who have recently started to snore because of loss of tone in the pharyngeal muscles are in the category expected to benefit the most. It shouldn't take too much effort to get their muscles back in trim! People who started snoring because of lax muscles ten, twenty or even thirty years ago are likely to have to work that much harder and longer at the exercises but would still be expected to benefit.
For over-weight snorers it is clear that the exercises will not preferentially remove fat from the pharynx; however, they will tone the pharyngeal muscles. So combining the singing exercises with diet and aerobic exercise should make a very good combination treatment.
For those who have been snoring since childhood the exercises are unlikely to be of much benefit: if they are not over-weight, it is probable that they are snoring for fixed anatomical reasons: for example, a particularly narrow neck, enlarged tonsils or elongated uvula; or that they have nasal obstruction due to allergy, polyps or a deviated nasal septum after a broken nose (26). Sadly such factors cannot be changed through exercise. The increased overall tone of the throat may still make a positive difference but it is unlikely to be a wow!
