Sun Posted May 2, 2013 Share Posted May 2, 2013 As I am using the NG to navigate the passaggio, for the first time I'm doing constriction free phonations - I'm noticing it's taking me huge amounts of support efforts to sustain notes that aren't that high or loud. F.ex. currently a D4# or E4 can be sustained for max 8 seconds probably, and I feel myself working very very much with my core, the support is moving but I "run out" of support after 8 seconds here (CVT way of describing support). My theory is that I've never actually had to fully support notes before so the coordination for supporting properly is very weak, so my body expells tons of effort because the movement is very inefficient. I also feel that my current range limit is primarily due to the inability to hold back the air enough; the folds start to blow apart at the top. With this said what are the main ways to improve weak support? I'm thinking sustaining these difficult (for me) notes, for as long as possible every day, I've experienced that sirening up to a note, then back down, then back up all on the same breath continuously seems to work the support system pretty good too.
