Do you practice vocal techniques for singing? Have you heard of any such techniques? I’m sure you have.
It’s always useful to understand any instrument better and when it comes to singing there’s more that comes into play other than just opening your mouth. Many of the top vocal and singing coaches consider it useful for all their students to understand the instrument they are developing better so that they understand how and why exercises will make a difference.
So here are a few insights regarding the types of breathing and how they will help anyone with their singing (thanks to Vocal Technique Tips).
Abdominal breathing – Why?Although using abdominal breathing during singing is best, many people do not breathe like that in everyday life.There are different ways of breathing; abdominal (belly), chest, or a combination of the two.In everyday life it doesn’t matter very much how you breathe as long as you allow your lungs to fill themselves with air and use your diaphragm in the process.Poor breathing techniques can lead to all sorts of physical problems though, like hyper ventilating, fatigue, dizzyness, etc.
So it’s interesting to note that understanding and practicing good breathing techniques can save you a lot of discomfort.
When you sing, the abdominal breathing technique is most effective. This has everything to do with the function of your diaphragm during singing.Abdominal breathing allows the diaphragm to reach it’s lowest position. By doing so, it pushes your organs down and a little forward. That is why your belly becomes bigger when you inhail.When you start singing, the diaphragm will move upwards. By using breath support (abdominal muscles become active) you will slow the diaphragm down which gives you the opportunity to control the airpressure and -flow longer and better. The result of this is a free sound and the possibility to sing long lines.
