SOLVE THE SUPPORT MYSTERY- A 75 MINUTE VIDEO WORKSHOP

Please note this workshop is included in the Pimp Your Voice Beginners and Intermediate courses as well as Release Your Voice.

 

This class was created for singers who just want more. More power, more ease, more flexibility.

Maybe you've heard the term "sing from the diaphragm" before. Maybe you even know you have to control your breath in some way.

But if you struggle to explain exactly HOW you do that, here's where you might have a problem.

 

The majority of singers are confused about what support actually is and what it should feel like. Even those who've been taking lessons with a private coach for years.

They know it's got something to do with their diaphragm or their breath and when done right you shouldn't feel throat strain, but the specifics are a mystery.

 

If this sounds like you, you are not alone. Welcome to a pretty large (but still cool) club.

This is where Solve the Support Mystery comes in. A detailed easy-to-follow breakdown of what "support" actually is, why it's important and tips and tools to get you experiencing it for yourself.

Let me ask you a few questions...

DO YOU...

  • Feel tension in your throat, especially when you sing higher or add power?
  • Find that sometimes your voice can feel shaky or unsteady?
  • Clench your stomach muscles to support your voice?
  • Struggle to hit high notes clearly and effortlessly?
  • Get frustrated because your voice isn't as full and resonant as you'd like.

The good news? This is all (unfortunately) very common but fixable!

 

If you're not 110% clear around how to create a effortless rich tone, you're not able to train your body to do this consistently. You're not able to regularly remind it how to get the result you're after.

 

 

IMAGINE BEING ABLE TO SING WITHOUT YOUR THROAT TIGHTENING, KNOWING THAT A STRONG, STABLE SOUND WILL FALL OUT. 

BEING ABLE TO ENJOY PERFORMANCES BECAUSE YOU'RE NOT WORRYING ABOUT WHETHER OR NOT YOU'LL CRACK ON THAT HIGH NOTE.

 

Solve the Support Mystery is an online class that shows you exactly how to engage the support muscles of the body to take pressure off your throat.

If you want your voice to feel and sound freer, this workshop is for you.

THE INSPIRATION FOR THIS WORKSHOP

The reason I created this class in the first place was that I was asking singers how support really works and I got a lot of blank stares. Most of them admitted to hearing a vague phrase (like "use your diaphragm" or "sing from the body") and not really understanding what it meant.

This was exactly where I was when I was learning to sing. It took me years of doing my own work on my voice and seeing multiple teachers around the world to really get a grasp on what it felt like.

And now that I know what it is and how to make it happen, I wanted to share that. Far and wide.

 

 

SPECIFIC THINGS COVERED INCLUDE:

- How the inhale is part of support (and how that should feel)

- Why thinking of it as simply "tensing my abs" is not helpful and in fact can be adding more throat tension

- Exercises to help practice your breath control for a stronger more stable sound

- 2 very tangible ways to make sure your voice is coming from your body and not your throat (including a pretty handy tool)

- How strong/loud notes and high notes should feel different from those lower and quieter ones

- What questions are useful to ask (and answer) when you do encounter strain and how to troubleshoot it when it happens

- How you should think about support during a performance so that you can be in the moment and engaging with your audience (rather than stressing over technique).

 

You'll learn the following through a 75 minute video recording of the original live workshop (there is both a large high quality version and a lower quality smaller version of this in case your internet can't handle the big one).

 

I GET IT, YOU WANT TO KNOW ABOUT THE RESULTS, THE FEEDBACK - THE PROOF!

Just want to say how much I appreciate this video Kim. It’s rare that someone can teach well online so I’m impressed.

That last exercise: best teaching I’ve seen about it. I’ve been watching other videos since this one, and you guide us the best because you’re focusing on getting us to describe how it feels. Well done!

Thanks so much for the information shared this morning. The lowering of the breath was new for me and I think from using the exercises I was tensing my ab region too much.

I am getting a richer tone with relatively more ease and considerably less tension in the throat. Amazing!
— Peter
It was a very good session, thank you.

It was very useful just to grasp the fundamental idea that you need to control your breath *somehow*, so if you don’t do it with your core muscles you will do it with your throat.

I have since watched the video several times. Realising that it has given me my biggest lightbulb moment since I started on my journey to improve my singing technique around 3 years ago.

You will not believe the difference just internalising that concept has made. And the crazy thing is that I worked on that with my teacher maybe four or so months ago. I just had not internalised the coordination to be my default when I sing...

I can’t remember the term you used... but I thought yes!! it has to be what your body does on auto, as its norm... I have been practising all weekend.!
