Train smart and start understanding what functional means: it is important for your voice development.

So, I did post this in my stories on Instagram and here and of course some wrote to me that this thing on the photo was not true since it was not true for him. This is the reason I stress so much on those concepts because it is still the retention on “heavy” and not on “how” to do that heavy. Form is fundamental, with poor form you will have plenty of unwanted consequences, and it is true for the body as for the voice. I use workouts examples because it is better developed as concept and more commonly understandable than vocal ones, also we are not so many using exactly the same principles in voice even if it is a long long hype thing of using those terms but with not the actual relation to the joints and their specifics and actual relation to voice production. So actually if you train with “good form” (and get to have a good form) you can actually start really training smart and to do this you have to use also the tool that is the “forte” (and many others that in voice correspond to the weight or the unilateral at the place of bilateral etc.).

#cossuprogram first case

She is a singer who entered my study program in may 2014 with nodules, a pre-contact, an emathoma and a whiplash injury on the vocal folds. She had several years of voice lessons without  gaining enough extension or intonation or the personal style she desired for a proficuous career. All the attempts to have a good technique (even with good and experienced teachers) were a failure, gaining something at the depens of other things and her vocal folds getting worse. This were her vocal folds  when she started the program.X. Y. vocal folds 07:05:2014

 

I found in her something in the muscular chains (that are the center of my method) without the sufficient elasticity and the proper work to give freedom and movement to tongue and larynx. The first weeks I used the physical exercises I have invented to start solving that muscular problem. As the connection was possible and more correct I worked on changing habits in authomatic gesture, imagined gesture and the feedbacks with vocalises on two octaves and songs out of her repertoire useful for my purposes. Those are her vocal folds after two months, quiet a huge difference.X. Y. vocal folds 24:07:2014
