TENSION 395 276 Vocal Technique

The last blog entry was about pressure, today’s is about tension. Similar, yes! The amount of tension in the body can completely change a singers ability level. Release and relaxation are essential elements in the technical pre-work and I’m finding it more and more beneficial to start without pitches. “Em’s ,”el”s and ah’s sliding through spoken voice intervals are better than a 5 pitch scale to get the face , jaw, tongue and articulators to relax. Moving shoulders, wrists and elbows also immediately help the singer find the magic release!! Everything improves when we get to the Zero gravity state; tone, pitch, ring, vocal fold closure , and endurance and strength all benefit. Keep the lips lazy and full feeling and enjoy the opportunity to experience a finer level of control.

Revisit old lessons with a new focus on eliminating tension as you work and you’ll very quickly start hearing as well as feeling the difference.
