Stretch principle and throat

July 13, 2009

The principle of stretching to straighten the posture also applies to the throat and mouth, except here now, it is not necessarily to straighten. It is to additionally expand and sometimes to lengthen.

In practicing singing here, constantly strive to open your back of the throat muscles wider and lengthen the back of the throat. Overtime, these muscles will regain their tone and the more capable sounds created will be available when you are singing.

These efforts also enable for new types of sounds.

Remember that the support structure for the throat and neck will affect these muscles, which will then facilitate for the inner throat muscles to lengthen and expand.

Many people have trouble with the support structure for the throat and neck, and these top of chest, shoulders, and upper back muscles and spinal alignment issues can be difficult to get rid of.

Additionally, these are locked in placed by the excessive tension in the throat.

anger, sorrow and side of throat muscles

June 18, 2009

These side of throat muscles frequently express anger and sorrow; subjects that pop songs frequently deal with. When overly taut, these muscles can be sublimated to sing anger and sorrow well, however, these are the opposite muscles (constrictor muscles in Alan Greene’s terms) when singing happy and many smooth sounds.

When detensing, losing the excessive tension of these side of throat muscles can throw off prior acquired singing skills built up around these. In this way, Alan Greene’s assessment of silence while learning how to sing–otherwise, reinforcing the constrictor muscles, is correct. However, the length of time it takes to detense these constrictor muscles can be months to years; so VocalPosture.com believes it is better to utilize their sublimation while tensed.

In detensing these side of throat muscles, one imagery technique is to think of the chin pulling down, instead of the side throat muscles near the chin pulling down. 

The side of throat muscles tension are particularly difficult to rid.   A trigger point therapy bood mentions that throat trigger points are particularly difficult to rid, if impossible.   VocalPosture.com suggests using yoga cobra with also another (don’t know name), which looks like a cobra in reverse, with the front toward the ceiling and upper arm with elbow base supporting the upper chest.
