Some vocal teachers instruct students (and I quote) to “Sing from the diaphragm!” However, I say: How can you? “The vocal cords are not in the diaphragm”…
Yet, this instruction implants a subliminal message that instructs the student to blow more air. At least 90% of the time – very harmful!
Although it is very true, that breathing is very important, nearly every student who enters their 1st voice lesson will state, they need to work on their breathing exercises; I just listen…
The truth is, the largest problem experienced by the overwhelming majority of singers is: How to transition from chest voice, through the 1st bridge, (middle voice) into head voice without yelling and screaming or disconnecting into breathy falsetto, with dynamic tonal presence and with connected voice intact.
That’s the biggest problem singers face, not whether the singer has been trained to acquire and utilize more breath seeking to achieve desired results.
Remember, I agree, breath is very important… But, what’s more important is how to breathe in conjunction with how to transition throughout the vocal registers, properly!
There is a way, but the overwhelming majority of vocal teachers have not been taught how to apply it for themselves or how to teach the most proven, successful vocal pedagogy from the historic 1600 – 1700 era.
