Thanks for watching!

0:02:460:02:47

So, the lesson today that I want to share with you guys

0:02:550:02:58

is how to breathe properly when you're singing.

0:02:580:03:01

You want to support from a muscle under the lungs called

0:03:010:03:04

the diaphragm.

0:03:040:03:06

So, it's kind of like in your belly region,

0:03:060:03:09

so when you breathe you want to pretend like your stomach is

0:03:090:03:13

like a balloon.

0:03:130:03:14

So, when you breathe in...

0:03:140:03:17

the balloon inflates.

0:03:170:03:19

And then, when you breathe out...

0:03:190:03:21

it deflates.

0:03:210:03:22

So make sure that your stomach area is expanding when you breathe,

0:03:220:03:29

not your chest. Make sure your shoulders don't move at all.

0:03:290:03:32

-So...

-Yeah, and to elaborate on that,

0:03:320:03:35

it's really important to use your breath to, you know,

0:03:350:03:37

hit high notes or be able to sustain notes.

0:03:370:03:40

-Right, like in Take Control...

-Yeah, exactly.

0:03:400:03:42

..there's a few high notes and some long notes, yeah.

0:03:420:03:45

And another really important time to use your breath is right before

0:03:450:03:48

you're about to sing, or if you're about to go on stage and take it

0:03:480:03:52

away, it's really important to remember to ground yourself

0:03:520:03:54

and to use those really deep breathing techniques.

0:03:540:03:57

So the reason why we want to breathe from our diaphragm when we sing

0:03:570:04:01

is because we want to get that full, powerful voice instead of

0:04:010:04:04

a weaker chest-breathing voice.

0:04:040:04:07

-So that is our lesson of the day.

-Yeah.

0:04:070:04:10

-I hope you guys got something out of it.

-Yeah, tune back in next time...

0:04:100:04:13

-Yeah, for sure.

-..for another cool lesson.

0:04:130:04:15

-Thanks for watching.

-Yeah, thanks.
