    I’m not sure what volume you’ve been working, but you may want to go back to the starter workouts for a while. When those become comfortable progress to volume 1 and so forth. Gradually ease back into the more demanding workouts. You may also want to post bridging and chest-stretching “lah” triads to get feedback on where you can improve technique. Be sure to have Ken and/or the piano guide playing softly in the background for pitch reference and post the whole scale, ascending and descending, not just a snippet. I’ll also add that you may want to review vowel modifications. Remember these are your “safety valves” as you ascend the scales and are designed to help you maintain good open-throat technique.

    I’m sorry. I just noticed you don’t have a “student” account. So some of my recommendations might not make sense to you. Do you have the course? Have you been following Ken’s exercises on YouTube?

    I’ll tag some of the moderators. I don’t want to overstep bounds by expounding on topics covered more thoroughly in the course in the “General” section of the forum. I don’t think I’d be overstepping though by saying you might want to practice the lip burble with a candle a few inches from your lips and try not to extinguish it. It may help with airflow management. @wigs @doc_ramadani @Elara @highmtn
