FREE SINGING LESSONS & TIPS

Many students have been asking for videos of how the diaphragm works, so I ventured into YouTube to find a video that showed the internal workings.
One video in particular showed the diaphragm movement better than any other, and also explained the benefits of taking deep and slow breaths. Yes, singing is good for your health – deep breathing being only one of the reasons!
This particular video focuses on BELLY BREATHING which is a technique taught by many vocal teachers. The SingSMART&8482; Vocal Training Method focuses on FULL BODY BREATHING, which includes bringing air into the belly while also expanding your sides and back.
Not sure how that works? In addition to watching this video, try this simple exercise: Sit in a chair and put your elbows on your knees. This will basically cut off easy movement of the belly and force the air into back.
Learning to use full body breaths will not only increase the oxygen in your body, promoting good health, it will also provide you with the airflow you need to create consistent and strong vocal tones.
Learning to control the actions of the diaphragm using these conscious breathing techniques will put you on the path to singing at your very best. To learn more about BREATHING FOR SINGING, click the links below and get started online today.
