Singing Tips and Techniques – Drop Your Adam’s Apple and Extend Your High Singing Range


The "Adam & # 39; s Apple" is the container of the vocal cords. When we swallow, it rises to the top of the throat to prevent food or liquid from entering the lungs. When we yawn, she falls in the throat. These are natural reflexes, but a high larynx (swallowing) (Adam's Apple) goes against the good songs. When it rises, it reduces the space between the vibrating strings and the top of the throat, greatly affecting the quality and luminous harmonics of the sound. If the larynx goes up (natural reflex) when we sing high notes, our sound is pinched and the high range is very limited. In short, if you want to become a good singer, you MUST train the larynx to stay low in the throat.

I use the term "train" because most of us can not just think of the larynx. fingers or toes. We must lead him to do something that he really does not want to do.

The first thing you can do to lower the strings to sing is to inhale, to feel like you are starting to yawn. This type of inhalation is sometimes called "inhaling with a sense of astonishment". (You've just seen the Grand Canyon for the first time, and you take that big breath, marveling at the beauty.) That lowers the Adams apple and prepares you to sing well.

When singing, always inhale this way. . then – once your throat is open and your vocal cords are low in the throat, be especially careful to keep them as you continue to sing. At first, you will have to be very conscious of this, but as you do, your muscle memory will learn and you will not have to think about it.

the list of "to learn". and must be practiced often. I've recorded some great exercises on my BIBLE THE SINGER's, specially designed to train the larynx to stay down.
