Weird Trick For Releasing Singing Tension – Felicia Ricci


Weird Trick For Releasing Singing Tension – Take my FREE 3-video belt singing course!

Okay, not gonna lie, this singing tips video is weird. 🙂

But you know what? That’s how I’m feeling today. 🙂

In this video, you’ll learn how my performing onstage with my musical improv group gave me insight into a new strategy for relieving vocal tension. Specifically: that my playing *old, male characters with hip-loaded posture* helped me to bust singing tension!

Here’s my conclusion: loading your hips, tucking your pelvis under, and bending slightly at the waist can help to un-tense your neck, shoulders, and throat.

(This is similar to the “butt clench” technique I often advocate for belt singing — thrusting your energy DOWN into your lower body can help to free up your upper body.)

Yup, I know it sounds crazy. And no, I’m not kidding about this!

NOTE: In the video, when I play my weird old man characters, I stick my neck out a bit, kind of like a “chicken-neck.” Resist the urge to do this! The most important part is sinking into the hips, not craning your head forward, as this can throw off your alignment.

You, too, can wield the power of singing with a more hip-loaded posture, and feel firsthand how it helps to relieve tension in your neck and face. When you bust tension, you automatically start to sing better.

Practice using the tip contained in this video — and let me know what you think!

Improvisationally yours,

As a professional voice finder, it’s my sworn duty to teach you how to find your singing voice! Learning how to improve your singing voice is all about simple, achievable steps that make SENSE to you. All of us learn how to sing on our own timeline, and certain things will click more than others. But it’s important that YOU understand your voice more than anyone else — learning how to be a good singer is, in many ways, getting to know yourself 🙂 If you feel you don’t yet know how to sing like a pro, be patient — every baby step and daily practice session helps. (And I’ll keep posting new vids to help you!)
