Yesterday I mentioned how I tell my students to build the house.

That’s what I call the overall principles I learned last March at Complete Vocal Institute in Copenhagen.

1. Dynamic support

2. Jaw relaxed down and back, lips relaxed

3. Necessary Twang

4. Constriction under control

I’ll expand on these four things in the next days. I’ve found what I learned at CVI to be so helpful to my students and me. It’s a straightforward, Scandinavianly-tastic codified way of understanding how the voice works.

Check out the website if you want to jump down the rabbit hole. Or stay tuned, and I’ll briefly break down these principles in the next few days.

Sang purty, y’all.
