WHAT DOES DIAPHRAGM & BREATH SUPPORT MEAN?

I have been asked so many times “what does it mean to have diaphragm and breath support? We all know what is sounds like to have a strong or weak voice. To be an excellent and powerful singer you must have diaphragm and breath support.

To have strong diaphragm and breath support means you are working against the natural urge of the diaphragm. The diaphragm wants to release the air that has been inhaled. The struggle between the abdominal muscles and the loin muscles is what creates support for a singer.

During inhalation breath into the back. By doing this you engage the muscles that wrap around the rib cage. As you exhale, use a steady and slow stream of air while singing. All the muscles around the rib cage, abdomen and loin muscles create a contraction to exhale in a slow stream of air. Sustaining that muscle resistance is what creates diaphragm and breath support.

Vocal exercises can dramatically improve the caliber of vocal performance and strengthen breath support and control. Each note and phrase rely upon a steady stream of air being exhaled, holding the notes without wavering or losing pitch. The key is to control the amount of air (little as possible) while exhaled with a controlled rate of speed by using these muscles.

JOKE FOR THE DAY:

How many altos does it take to change a light bulb?

None, they can’t get up that high!
