Students sometimes come into their lesson with me and say, “I got it! I know the ONE thing I have to do to ‘fix’ my voice! If I do this (drop the jaw or breathe into my lower back or open the throat etc.) Then I’ll never have to worry about my voice again!”

When I ask for the student to enlighten me about this ONE magical thing that will fix her voice, the answer is usually a good partial solution to their singing challenges. I caution students against this instant gratification thinking.

Usually a week or 2 later the same student is complaining that the ‘fix’ doesn’t work any more. Then s/he gets so discouraged because If there was ONE fix for everyone’s voice Then singing would be easy.

The reality of the vocal instrument is that no ONE thing is going to ‘fix’ it for all time. The voice is alive and constantly changing and continuously responding to signals from the brain and the environment. The vocal production involves the respiratory, auditory, and neurological systems. It involves muscles from above the hard palate to the thighs. How can ONE thing possibly be the entire solution to good singing?

Do not be discouraged by this. Actually the complexity of the human voice is why it’s so captivating. As singers we have so many choices of expression through music.

If you want just one thing to do that will Then change your singing forever, begin with your inhale. Think of you inhale as opening your vocal instrument from the tip of your nose to the top of your ears to your tailbone, keeping in mind that your jaw must be loose to get an open inhale.

I’ve spent my entire career exploring my inhale. I find it fascinating and constantly rewarding to continue finding yet another small adjustment that opens my voice even more.

A true professional never ‘finished’ with her vocal training. There’s always something new to learn that will take your singing to a whole new level.

Grab on to the fascinating study of your singing voice. You’ll always be happy you did.
