Instruction

A good way to train this tilted position is making the sound of a crying puppy. When you
feel your throat with your hand you can feel the larynx tilting forward. Try to sing in this
position and maintain the tilted position.

Put your fingers on your larynx (below your jaw in your neck) and feel what happens if
you speak: "How are you". Now speak this sentence again like you are about to burst into
tears. You will feel that the front of the larynx now tilts forward. It may feel like the front
drops a little bit.
Different emotions require diverse sounds. Since flexibility of expression is what we're
after, our technique needs to allow us the development of an instantaneously emotion
sensitive vocal instrument. I believe in the importance of personal choice and self
expression; of freeing one's artistic abilities not restraining them. As a result, I have
actively sought an approach that allows the use of the body as a vehicle for self
expression without damaging it.

Breathing
Air support

To find out if you are breathing correctly, place a hand on your belly button. This area
should expand first when you breathe in and then spread upwards until your chest is
expanded (don't lift the shoulders or push the stomach out). If you feel you are not
breathing properly, practice the following exercise.
Lay flat on your back.
Place your hands on your waist, fingers pointing towards your belly button.
Focus on filling up your stomach from the bottom to the top taking a slow deep breath.
(The aim is not to fill yourself to bursting but to inhale enough air so that you can feel the
difference between a shallow breath taken when breathing from the chest).
You should feel your stomach rise and your hands being raised gently up and outward
until you feel your chest expanding. The expansion is not only at the front of the body
but also to the sides and back as well.

Breath out slowly to a count of 5


Repeat the exercise 10 times
Practice daily before you rise in the morning and prior to sleeping at night for 5 - 10
minutes gradually increasing this to 3 or 4 times a day.
Once you get it right, practice as often as possible, sitting, standing and whilst at work
until you are breathing naturally from your abdomen.
Try the following exercise to help increase breath control - Count on one breath singing
each number out loud. using one breath at any comfortable pitch. Start with a small
number like 5 or 10 and increase this gradually until you can manage 25 or more without
straining, tensing or running out of breath.

Warm-up

It is useful to have a general physical warm-up game before this exercise: something like Run to It
is ideal.
Additionally, you may want to do some facial warm-up exercises: scrunching up then stretching
out, eeee then ooo, chew an imaginary ball of toffee (thats getting bigger), stretch the tongue out
(pointed & flat) and waggle it from side to side and whistle happy birthday.

Short introductory exercises

Few people use their full lung capacity for breathing or speaking in day to day life these exercises
should remind the group what it feels like to do so!
If there is room, have everyone lie down on the floor on their backs. We use chest/torso muscles
when we stand/sit up but for these exercises, we want to use every possible muscle for controlled
breathing!
Ask everyone to take a deep breath in remind them that they should use their diaphragm that
their chest/stomach should go out as they fill up, not their shoulders hunch up. Hold the breath for a
few seconds then let it go. Repeat.

Next, ask them to take a deep breath in again but ask them to expel it in a different way as below.
Repeat each of these exercises at least a few times until you feel the group is making the most of
them:

HA! expel all the air out of your lungs in one pop by saying ha!. This should
get louder as its repeated and whenever anyone is talking too quietly in the
future, remember how loud they got with this!
Hiss it out hiss for as long as possible, until youre all out of air

Ahhh a variation on the hiss, again held until youre out of air. This is usually
faster than the hiss.

Count it out a steady count as a group for as long as people can on just one
breath. Make sure the numbers are strongly projected to use a good amount of
air each time.

Yawn. A lot. Notice the shape of your mouth, and the back of your
throat, when you do. This is the perfect position for your mouth and jaw
when you sing: dropped jaw, back of mouth is open. You get better tone
(and easier high notes) when your mouth/etc are in this position.

Range

VOCALIZATION!!!
Find your range. Play the middle C on a keyboard and match it with
your voice. Play and sing the next note down. Continue until you reach a
note that you cannot sing comfortably.
Warm up your voice. This is extremely important in any singing
situation, but it's especially so when working in the top few notes of your
range.
Learn how to sing properly BEFORE attempting to expand.
Expanding your range when you aren't comfortable working within your

range is a recipe for vocal cord damage


Do vocal exercises that encourage you to "touch" the notes at
the top and bottom of your range. Do not linger at a note you aren't
comfortable with. Focus on keeping your throat relaxed, and on
breathing properly.
Practice breathing. If you go lie down, relax, and put your hand on
your stomach, you will feel your stomach go up and down as you breath.
That is diaphragmatic breathing! When you're singing, you have to push
your stomach out when you inhale. This will allow you to completely fill
your lungs. Then, when you're exhaling (which is when you sing), bring
your stomach slowly in, using all the muscles in your diaphragm (which
is just below your belly button) That helps you be able to sing longer and
control your tone.
Sing along to songs that are higher than your vocal range.
Singing is like playing an instrumentThe more you practice, the better
you get! Just make sure that you warm up first to avoid damaging your
vocal cords.

Final
Practice

Have good posture. You have to have your shoulders and back straight
and relaxed. Remember not to tilt your head up and stretch your neck
when trying to reach a high note. When you do that, the muscles in your
neck get tense, straining your voice. It also prevents air from getting
through, causing you to try to push the sound out, which doesn't sound
good either. Keep your neck straight.
