Hey singers! This episode explains why the stomach moves when you breathe, a question that gets asked a lot. Just remember, when I say “stomach”, I don’t mean the organ itself, but rather the front part of the belly that we colloquially refer to as the “stomach”.
In Episode 74 Sara addresses a user question about what to wear or not wear when it comes to singing. Additionally Sara announces the winner of the SingingTV user competition!
Apologies for the REALLY annoying audio noise in this episode. As you know, SingingTV does not edit, and we only found out about the audio noise after the fact. Working on a fix for future episodes.
In Episode 67, Sara answers a user question on how to keep the vocal folds healthy. Remember, the most important thing for the voice is hydration and plenty of sleep. If you find yourself hoarse, the MOST important thing you can do is to rest your voice.
Why water? How does water work? Do I need to hydrate my vocal cords? How much water do I need to drink? If I drink water before a gig, will I be better hydrated? In this episode, Sara tells you all about water!
In this episode of Singing TV, Sara Leib shows you what it means to keep an open throat. Keeping an open throat, also called “raising your soft palate” is important in singing. This little tip will help you raise your soft palate by opening your throat. Enjoy!
