Lately, I have not been in the practice rooms but I have been working on my support in many other ways. I try to sing regular songs that I know the words too and the pitch and I try to make sure I am singing with plenty of space, support, and my vocal cords fully…

I didn’t have a whole lot of time today, so I spent a tab bit less time warming up and stretching. I did a few hisses and lip rolls, and I spent almost all my time today really trying to emphasize an open throat (a raised soft palate and a lowered tongue). I only practiced for…

Feb 10th progress

I practiced for about an hour with 20 minutes of stretching and warming up exercises as well as 40 minutes of singing scales, rip rolls,  and hisses. I felt like after stretching I was able to get the moment of suspension just about every time. When I didn’t have it, I consciously thought about waiting…
