Voice Lessons Tips on Singing How to Sing with Your Diaphragm
Hi, this is Larissa Lam, on behalf of expertvillage we're going to continue exploring singing and breathing techniques. And fornow we are going to explore the difference between the throat, singing with the throat,and singing properly with the diaphragm. Now, if you saw my previous tutorial you'll have learnedproper breathing with the diaphragm. We're going to continue down that road by explainingthe difference between the throat and the diaphragm. You may have been tired singingif you've been screaming on a roller coaster you'll also find your vocal cords might actuallyhurt in the morning. And that's because you're using your throat, up here. Now, when you'resinging properly, you should be taking pressure
off the throat and instead, the breath supportshould be in your diaphragm. So, I'm going to sing a simple song, like, quot;Twinkle TwinkleLittle Starquot; to illustrate it. Now, if you're singing with your throat, quot;Twinkle TwinkleLittle Starquot; is going to sound like this, quot;Twinkle, twinkle little star, star, how Iwonder what you are.quot; You see you push with your throat, it's kind of a closed, kind ofa nasty sound isn't ité So if you sing with your diaphragm where you're taking pressureaway from the throat, it would sound a little bit more like quot;Twinkle, twinkle, little star,how I wonder what you are, up above the world so high, like a diamond in the sky.quot; So ifyou notice, I'm expanding my diaphragm, as
I'm taking breaths before I sing, quot;Twinkletwinkle little star how I wonder what you are.quot; And there's not a whole lot of actionin the chest area, and not a whole lot of tension in my throat. Hopefully, you'll haveseen that illustration, and the easiest way to detect that is to just put your hand acrossyour throat. If you feel a lot of throat action and you feel huge vibration, then you're probablyusing your vocal cords a little too much in the throat. Place your hands on the diaphragmand sense that you're expanding and contracting, and then you'll know you're also using yourdiaphragm a lot more than your throat. Hopefully this will help you on your way to not tiringyour vocal cords.
