| Breathing ...
is simply the
inhalation and exhalation of air.
when we inhale we feel that our stomach contracts and when we exhale,
we feel that our stomach expands. Logically, our stomach is supposed to
expand when we inhale and contract when we exhale. To illustrate,
consider a car tyre or a balloon. When you put air into the tyre we see
that it expands, and when it's flat (no air), it contracts. The balloon
gets bigger as you put air into it, and as soon as air is released, the
balloon becomes smaller. Isn't this interesting?
is very important because it helps improve your vocal
sustainability. An abundant supply of air with regulated outflow will
help you sing sustained notes with ease.
singing is the result of good breathing.
