Why Should I Do What's In This Video?

In just a few minutes we are going to solve a HUGE vocal problem most singers have...lowering the larynx!

What Is It I Need To Know Most About What's In Here?

It doesn't matter your voice type, most singers have an issue with the larynx rising. This will oftentimes lead to feeling like you are hitting "ceiling" when you sing and it will make you strain when you are trying to hit notes higher in your range.

How Do I Achieve A Lower Larynx?

We are going to do a series of gasp exercises that will help you to lower your larynx.

What Will Happen If I Start Doing This Right?

1. You will develop healthy vocal folds.
2. You will add more power without bringing in additional vocal weight.
3. You will strengthen your diaphragm coordination which will help you to sing freely with more power.

You already know how to release the larynx and give your voice a sense of lightness. This video will help you to add more volume and force to your tone for a bigger sound.

What Is It I Need To Know Most About What's In Here?

You should already know how to do this if you check out the first video but in this video we are making one minor adjustment.

How Do I Achieve The 360 Degree Breath?

In this video we are going to focus on more pure tones. Make sure to do the reverse phonation exercises.

What Will Happen If I Start Doing This Right?

1. You will develop healthy vocal folds.
2. You will add more power without bringing in additional vocal weight.
3. You will strengthen your diaphragm coordination which will help you to sing freely with more power.
