Breathing for Singing : CAPACITY

Have you ever been on a long road trip and wished the tank in your car was larger so you didn’t have to stop so often to fill up? How about singing long notes? Is your tank full enough to hold the note to the very end?

In the last couple of tips and lessons we have talked about making better choices for breathing and gaining control over your airflow. Today we are focusing on breathing capacity. Unlike a gas tank in your car, you can build your capacity to bring in more oxygen and more power to your voice with simple breathing capacity exercises.

Remember that all muscles have memories, they act according to what they are used to doing, responding to both conscious and unconscious messages from your brain. By consciously practicing your ability to bring in more air, and stretching the muscles in your abdomen and back, you can begin to increase your ability to hold out long notes.

This is not something you can accomplish just by singing and practicing songs over and over. While you may be able to navigate a certain song and its notes better with practice, that skill will not normally apply to all of the songs you sing. In other words, that method will take you A LOT LONGER to achieve the results you desire. In addition, the practice needs to be isolated so that when you are doing a vocal performance it is a subconscious act.

Most people are unable to accomplish this without a little assistance. Meaning, that while you are perfectly capable of practicing taking in more air and developing those new memories, without a guided exercise the practice seems to be too unorganized: don’t practice long enough or with enough consistency. To help with this plight, there is a new online singing lesson available to you that includes an exercise to help you achieve this goal much faster and with more reliable results.
