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.

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! .

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
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

Happy almost Valentine’s Day! As I take in all the Hallmark sentiments floating around this time of year, I’m reminded that love is much deeper than romance. Love comes in many forms. Your relationship with your voice and with singing is the kind of love that can help you achieve things you never thought you could and take you places you never thought you’d go. . . . . if you only let it. I think we’ve all experienced moments when we just couldn’t get out of our head while singing. Some of us only experience it as a fleeting frustration, while others find it debilitating. Regardless of where you fall on the spectrum, I’m pretty sure that getting stuck in your head is a universal experience for most artists in some way, shape or form. And the reason why it’s so frustrating is because in that moment, your mind is standing in the way of the full expression of your love. And the feeling sucks! This is why so much of my teaching and the content I bring you centers around the idea of mindfulness as it relates to singers and vocal technique. Without it, your expression – your LOVE
