Jeannie coaches the students through improving vocal resonance and range. She has an exercise that she uses that involves sealing the nose, and using a nose buzz, and then sings a melody. She warns that it will take some experimenting to find to find and become comfortable with this method.
- This next exercise…has it's own peculiar aspects.…We're going to use the muscles of your lips…to help,…as a counter to gain greater flexibility…and in fact muscle strength within your voice.…While using this approach, it is going to develop…strength and tone.…
The results show themselves right away,…but it takes…a certain constancy of regular practice with it…to have these results actually…be part of your vocabulary…of vocal growth and stay in there.…But it gives immediate change to your voice.…
I also use this approach in the singing songs better section…and you'll hear me talk about it there…as well as apply it to another singer so you hear…someone else and what it does for their voice…and so of course what it can be for you.…This is a trumpeted ooh.…And by the way I have some other exercises coming up…that use this as well but…it's so worth using it…in a number of different contexts.…
So we're gonna use your lips…we're gonna reach them forward.…This is the focus, right here.…So every note that you're going to sing…
