The third step is to do a quick check on your posture. Brian, our gold medalist friend, says that the most important part is to not raise your chin. Relaxing your head slightly down, just a couple of degrees. This prevents you from stretching the muscle under your chin, allowing an easy execution of the notes. Often people will begin to raise their chin as they sing higher notes. It’s also tempting to drop the chin too much for those low notes. Don’t be enticed either way! Stretch the back of your neck to help keep your chin in place as your tune rises into the stratosphere or to the lower depths of the soul.
As to the rest of your posture, there are several considerations, some that affect your chin position as well, so we’ll take a short break from the 10-steps-to-a-note and talk a bit about posture over the next couple of buzzes.
