Breathing?

Hi everyone the cats left home hit a brick wall. Anyway here's my question, my words or notes often go flat or weak at the end of a verse or bar any tips?

    You are using too much air at the beginning of the phrase, or you need to more physical stamina. Either way you need to manage your air better.

    Breathing exercises are key to that (well from my personal experience) I'm about 5 months now in the program and I am still working on it but if you do all the breathing exercises every day as a routine it will pay off BIG TIME I can assure you

    Keep on singing xxx

    the worst one for me are the sit ups.... but they did really made me realize how much pressure is needed on the diaphragm so do not skip on it, it's really important ( and that's coming from someone who did not care for them at the beginning)

    Without hearing you sing a scale, like on the AH vowel, we don't really know exactly what you're doing, so we're theorizing without any evidence. Give us an example of you doing a scale from one of Ken's videos.

    @kirk , as someone who could not imagine posting a LAH scale on here when I first started, let me assure you it is no big deal, people here aren't going to laugh or judge you, they will just give you valuable input and it will make your workouts so much more focused on the right targets. as I see it, the course would still be great without this forum, but the forum takes it to a whole new level. the fact that you can be SURE to not do the scales the wrong way and learn it the wrong way, and later having to go back to unlearn all the mistakes is PRICELESS.

    once you post your second scale, you won't even think of it as something you need any courage for

    ...plus you can always ask us for help with technical issues you may have with your recording setup etc
