Ever wonder if there’s one thing you could do to always sing well? Kind of like a secret weapon that would give you power & reliability every single time.
Well, I happen to believe there actually is such a concept to sing well. And once you know it, it globally changes what your body does to make sound when you sing.
I know your curious. . . .
I call it a secret weapon because of the dramatic effect it has on eliminating strain and creating stability and reliability in your voice. So no matter what genre you sing or what level singer you are, your chances of maximizing your technique to sing well go WAAAAAY up when you understand this key concept.
So what is it????
Drum roll please. . . . .
Yup. . . . That might sound totally esoteric to you, but I’m goin’ SUPER fundamental with this one.
The concept of Opposition is a game changer. TRUST ME.
And you know me, I’m in this for the long haul with you. While I enjoy giving you tips and tricks to sound better singing in the short term – my ultimate goal is to set you on a path which builds you a healthy, powerful and reliable instrument for the long haul.
So we’re getting fundamental today!!
Come with me to explore the concept of Opposition.
Your grasp of Opposition will effect whether your body supports or sabotages your singing.
It’s one of the fundamental things that can dramatically improve how your singing sounds and feels.
Once you understand Opposition and know how to use it to your advantage, your support becomes much more intuitive, your resonance finds it’s natural home, your chances of experiencing strain, tension and anxiety go WAY down and your singing improves.
So let’s get down to it. . . . .
There are four essential components of Opposition that you have to understand if you are going to sing to your full potential.
- Breathe Out to Breathe In
- Breathe In to Breath Out
- Down to Go Up
- Up to Go Down
What the heck does all that mean????
Watch today’s video!!
You may think I’ve gone totally bonkers but I promise. . . . . this video is full of “OMG, I never knew that!!” moments.
You NEED to know this.
An understanding of Opposition creates stability in your singing, which leads to consistency every time you sing, which engenders trust that allows your body to do what it was built to do – which is to sing with freedom.
Let me reiterate that:
OPPOSITION –> STABILITY –> CONSISTENCY –> TRUST –> FREEDOM
This video is a streamlined version of a FB Live I did recently. So if you weren’t able to tune in, you can watch here now. And if you did tune into the Live on FB, watch it here AGAIN! It takes time, repetition and reinforcement to embody these concepts in your singing. Your technique will thank you.
