This book provides a comprehensive journey into the role of respiratory function in singing and dispenses with the folklore surrounding this topic. You will learn: The importance of optimal respiratory function in singing How singers' beliefs about their respiratory adjustments are often incorrect, and why, despite popular belief, the breath does not carry the tone How lung volume influences the singing voice, and what the mechanical differences are between belly-in and belly-out singing How to design a customized exercise program that is based on the volume, pressure, and shape control variables actually used in singing This book is designed primarily for singers and singing teachers. Speech-language pathologists who work with singers will also find it of value. This book provides readers with the best scientific information available on respiratory function in singing, and presents it in an easy-to-read format.
