apparatus what you have to be best you can so one of the things that people lack on
mon a quite a bit is uh… isn’t breathing they oftentimes
they don’t use enough ear that’s very common very very common and it may be
with you so uh… if you think about that year

year is the same way if you have enough fuel cars after work right and sinking of the year so you need to make sure that using all the
capacity of the year you can as you can as you uh… as you see now when you go to sing educates we’ve been to sing for phrase fill your lungs full of year you know
maxell you’re hearing your loans and then uh… as seen through the current
views that you are trying to use that your even if you singing relatively
quietly you still want to use a lot of the year you know more than most likely
more than when using now so uses much here as you can through a
phrase and then if you have here left over at the end of the phrase exhale
dividends and inhale new here and feel of lands back up again and start the
next race miss relieved it’s going to really
improve your tone no doubt and it’s definitely a pitch to you get one of the year is difficult to
keep you can’t really say the moves up and down and oftentimes we hear people send me uh… will give us any recordings i have

Hi VideoHereBob,
Good question. The quick answer is, yes. You really want your diaphragm to be doing the work for you. As you exhale your diaphragm is raising up and pushing air out. It will drop down with an inhale. You should try your best not to let your ribcage collapse during the process. Your ribs will be working a little, but your diaphragm is doing the bulk of the work.

Hi Andrew .Thanks for your videoand your time.I am an amuter and I m trying how to breath but I m confused because some vocal coaches support mouth breathing and some others nose breathing.What is your oppinion?

Hiii sir Thank u for ur wonderful video.. And by the way i ve a question. That is,how can i fluent my voice… That us fluency..

What I worry about is where to breath, cause you can (or at least I can) hear where I breathe quite clearly and I worry about how it sounds due to my breathing. I also end up getting to a point where I need to breathe, and it's a quick progression to the ext word so I have to do a quick breath, so I can't fill my lungs completely. Being able to figure out where to breathe effectively would improve my voice a fair bit… as terrible as my voice is. XD
