Consistent vs Dynamic Air Pressure

Rate this topic


Recommended Posts

When singing should air pressure be consistent as in a "ssssss" at consistent volume or should the pressure vary depending on what one is singing? I know it takes very little air to sing but should the air pressure be a consistent stream of steady air or VARY from time to time depending on the notes?

For example:

Happy birthday to you!




This has been bothering me lol I feel like I can sing either way, with consistent or dynamic air pressure. What do the vocal cords like better?

it all depends on the material you are singing and how you want to sound.

the vocal folds don't like to be slammed.

when i sing certain songs with strong dynamic contrast or interval jumps i can feel like i'm bouncing the lower core.

you have to experiment based on the intended sound....example statatto fashion vs. legatto.

if you are a beginner you want to work on a controlled release of air. no pushing, no pressing, no punching.
