Ep 1 4 Breathing Types Voice Lessons To The World
Hi everybody! My name is Justin Stoneyand I'm the founder of New York Vocal Coaching here in New York City. Welcome to the very first episode ofVoice Lessons to the World. This is a show where we want to help you as singers to answer your questions and helpyou have the most information possible about vocal technique and how you canimprove. Whether you're a beginner or professional singer, whether you'repreparing for auditions
or for a performance, We want you to have the best information. I'll give you a chance later to send ussome questions, but we want to help you to improve your vocaltechnique and accomplish your goals as singers. So our very first episode is called quot;FourBreathing Typesquot;. Today I'm going to talk to you about fourbreathing types that you see in life and you also see in singers. So thevery first one is a high breath or a clavicular breath. So go ahead and take a deep
breath for me, and exhale. Now with a high breath you're gonna seethe clavicle and the upper body lift on the inhale and then exhale it comes down, try that one more timeinhale and exhale. Now you see this breath a lot in life and sometimes in singers, butit's actually not a breath that I would recommend
because its going to really expel the air fast and hard what comes up (inhales) must comedown (exhales) and you don't have a lot of control and thenthe larynx has to deal with all that excessive airflow. So there's another breath: the abdominalor belly breath that you can use. Try this, hand on belly inhale you feel an expansion exhale it comes in. Try it again. Inhale
expand and exhale it comes in. And one more time (don't lift the chest) inhale and exhale it comes in. Now this is a breath that Irecommend because the depth of that breath is going to allow the diaphragm to contract more. And it's also going to give yougreater control over your exhale. Another breath that I recommend is therib or intercostal breath. So put your hands on your rib cage righthere and try and inhale you'll feel an expansion exhale it comesin.
Try that again inhale expand exhale itcomes in and we'll do it one more time. Try not to lift the chest. And inhale exhale it comes in. So this is another breath that gives you a lotof control from the lower body for your singing. What I actually recommend though is acombination of both your rib breath and your low breath. So go ahead, one hand on your ribs one hand on belly let's see if you canopen both of these.
