BETTER BREATH SUPPORT? Stop Thinking Like A Singer!

This week’s episode of The Pro Singer Success Collective  is for all of you who struggle to find better breath support.  Arden is going to let you in on a simple change  you can make that will improve your breath support right away. Here’s what it is: STOP thinking like a singer! You’re probably thinking “But I AM a singer, how else am I supposed to think?” The thinking we use to direct ourselves around our singing really affects how we embody our technique and our support for better or for worse.   Changing thinking shifts understanding. A new understanding shifts mindset. And a new mindset results in a new physical response which helps your body work for you instead of against you in accessing your most efficient singing technique. Changing thinking = changing singing. Arden has come up with the top 3 words you can use to change your thinking that will have the biggest effect on improving your breath support and she’s gonna let you in on it in her next FB Live.

THE #1 SABOTEUR OF BREATH SUPPORT

Nearly every singer I work with has a struggle with breath support. It’s that nagging insecurity of “am I gonna make it to the end of this phrase???” when they’re performing and there’s a lot on the line. It plagues them when they’re recording and they’re chasing take after take as their body gets tighter and tighter. And, it also hits them in auditions when they’re not sure if they’ll be able to nail it when it counts despite all the training they’ve had. The worst part? The anxiety it creates when you can’t rely on your breath, and the way it decks your confidence and prevents you from building the kind of successful singing career your talent is otherwise capable of. And, so, you try to deal with it – you watch endless YouTube videos which either confuse you more (cause the truth is that most voice teachers don’t know how to teach support) or frustrate you because you have no idea if you actually doing it right.  You continue to try to put yourself out there for opportunities in your singing career, but it only makes you feel more insecure because you know that singing the way you’ve been

Switching Registers

In this 60 Second Singing Tip, I share what will help you when switching registers for a smooth transition between your head voice and chest voice. The struggle we face in switching between chest voice and head voice is caused by the vocal chords being too tense when we are singing in our lower register. This tightness of the vocal chords causes them to close up making it difficult to then sing with them open in our upper register. The problem is not that our chest register is too low, but if we try to sing higher than it will allow, we force ourselves into a position where the chords are trying to close. You could also think of it like a rubber band. If you stretch a rubber band too far, it gets hard and difficult to move. It’s in a similar way that when we push our chest register too high, it makes it difficult to pass over smoothly into head voice. We need to make sure our chest register is relaxed and available as a high as possible before attempting to switch over into head voice. You’ve probably been struggling for years with these transitions on switching

Powerful Head Voice

Do you have a powerful head voice? Higher notes with power and ease! When singing with a powerful head voice, support the sound with your diaphragm and keep your throat and jaw relaxed. This will enable you to sing higher notes with power and ease! Here are some tips: Keep your throat relaxed. Don’t press down too hard on the back of your tongue when singing in head voice; instead, maintain good posture and body alignment as you glide easily into this register using portamento through bridges in your voice. Head voice is a valuable tool for singers. It allows you to sing higher with more power and ease, which is why it’s an important part of singing technique. If you want to learn more about head voice and how to use it properly in your singing, check out our other blog posts on the subject! Watch now! .

Optimize Singing Performances

Today I want to talk about how to optimize singing performances! So, you want to optimize your singing. Good for you! Singing is an awesome thing to do and it’s great to have a goal of improving it—it’s fun, social, and can even be lucrative if you’re good enough. But what exactly is optimizing? In this context, optimizing means taking actions that will make the most effective use of your time so that you get better results faster. Let’s break down those terms: effective use of time means that the amount of effort required for something should match the reward received from doing it. For example: running around in circles for three hours might feel good at first but after about 20 minutes all the endorphins are gone and now all that remains is sore joints and tired muscles; on the other hand playing chess requires just as much concentration but gives way more benefits because there’s more room for growth (and winning!). So when we talk about making effective use of our time with regards to singing we mean focusing on activities that help us improve with little or no cost (in terms of resources) involved.” It means that

Belly Breathing

Belly breathing is a great way to calm and focus yourself. In this episode, we’ll learn what it is and why it’s important for everyone to do! What is Belly Breathing? You’ve probably heard the term “belly breathing.” But what does it mean? Belly breathing is a common term for diaphragmatic breathing, which is the most efficient way to breathe. Diaphragmatic breathing also goes by belly breathing because of its location in your body—your diaphragm moves down when you inhale and up when you exhale, which creates space between your ribs and abdomen. This type of respiration has many benefits: It helps keep your blood pressure low, allows more oxygen into your lungs (which raises their capacity), improves concentration and mental clarity, boosts energy levels by increasing blood flow in the brain (and thus oxygen delivery), reduces fatigue after physical exertion or stressful situations such as public speaking or heavy lifting at work; and even helps reduce snoring! Why is this bad? You may be wondering why belly breathing is bad for your voice. After all, doesn’t everyone breathe and what’s wrong with that? Belly breathing is not a bad thing, you just have to learn how to properly. When

Maybe right now your singing career isn’t working how you’d like: You haven’t figured out how to navigate opportunities in this new normal You haven’t figured out how to stand out from all the competition Perhaps your sound is unreliable so you haven’t been putting yourself out there You aren’t getting the opportunities you want You’re not breaking through to that next level.

Physics of Support

The physics of support, what does that mean in singing? Understanding how your body works while singing, so that you can improve your technique and avoid injury. The role of the abdominal wall The abdominal muscles are the largest muscles in your body. They are an external oblique muscle, which means they run from the bottom of your ribcage to the top of your pelvis. These sheets of muscle help with torso stability and control breathing. The most important function for athletes is their ability to resist strain on your lower back and spine by keeping your core strong so you don’t injure yourself during a heavy lift or high impact movement like running or jumping. The role of the abdominal wall during weight lifting is twofold: it protects our internal organs from injury, and it helps us maintain good posture throughout our activities. The rectus abdominis (or “six-pack”) flexes forward when performing sit-ups or crunches; however, this isn’t always necessary in athletics because other parts of our bodies often do this work instead—like pulling up on a barbell while doing squats while wearing weightlifting gloves! The role of the pelvic floor The pelvic floor muscles are a group of
