How do I "cut back the air"?
Hello. When I get into my upper chest areas (I am tenor) like F4 and F#4, I know I have to support more and not let too much air out because this would dry out my vocal cords/folds. But, how do I "cut back the air" as Ken says? I'm under the impression that cutting back the air is distinct from support, in the sense that they are two distinct actions that you have to consciously do while singing; am I correct? So how would I go about cutting back the air without involving extraneous neck muscles or causing strain/discomfort? Any help will be greatly appreciated!
