Breathing Support Technique ( diaphragm using abdomen or sternum? )
Hey guys, so i had some vocal lessons and my teacher said that my breathing should fill up the sternum and that i should keep that open posture while singing.
He also told me not to care for the abdomen too much, in fact, he told me the abdomen itself shouldnt be the main thing to worry about, it shouldnt squeeze in but rather just gently activate.
I saw some of kens videos and it seems like a different take on breathing technique as he cleary cares much more about whats below the sternum, "filling up" the abdomen and then squeeze in while singing, barely touching on the fact that the chest should be expanded and not fall with the exhalation.
Am i missing something here? Or are these really different takes on breath support?
