Voice coach and singing teacher

Singing for fun and for life!

I don't know a single person who doesn't like to sing. Singing makes people happy!

I sing everyday, not because it is my job as a vocal coach but because I love singing, it makes me happy and it makes me feel good!

We all need to warm up the voice before we start singing. 
Practicing scales and breathing with your diaphragm is really important.
The link here below will show you where the diaphragm is located in the body. 

Breathing with the diaphragm :
  • Place either of your hands on either side of your rib cage.  When you take a deep breath in through your nose imaging that your are sucking in all the air in the room, you should feel the rib cage rise  with the in breath. Try not to rise your chest as you do this exercise .
  • Exhale through the mouth on a gentle and slow ssss sound. Exhale as long as you are able without pushing! 
  • Repeat this exercise 10 times. 
  • Breath in again as before but this time exhale the air on a fast ssss sound.
  • Remember not to push! Just exhale. Repeat this exercise 10 times. 
This exercise will not only improve your breathing technique but also make you feel relaxed and give you a sense of well being. 

If you are serious about your singing you should be doing your vocal warm up every day.

With a good singing technique and correct breathing you will soon discover what amazing things you can do with your voice.
