Why do you need breathing exercises for singing?
In everyday speech, we naturally supply sufficient air for our voice; however singing requires more conscious regulation of airflow to avoid straining the vocal cords. Straining the voice by singing too high, too low, too loudly, making forced sounds like growling, grunting, squealing will also cause discomfort and potentially damage. This should always be avoided.
After singing, the vocal cords should not ache. If after singing you suffer with:-
sore or aching throat
irritable throat / coughing / clearing your throat
your vocal folds are telling you that they are not happy. This can be related to lack of adequate breath control. Doing some breathing exercises for singing will help you develop adequate breath control.
By doing some breathing exercises for singing you can learn all of these skills, and improve your vocal control, and ultimately the quality of the sound of your voice.
This book is a natural accompaniment to the singing courses and vocal groups offered by Igloo Music UK, and a useful companion for anyone wishing to develop their voice through self teaching.
