Puckered Lips for Singing Breath

Your Lips Matter For Singing Breathing

Today I got an email from one of my YouTube followers asking me to explain in more detail what I mean by the shape of your lips for the Slow Leaky Tire exercise.  Here is what she said:

“….thank you for your wonderful videos!”
“….unable to see clearly how the shape of your mouth is suppose to be when you do the leaky tire exercise. could you explain a little more in detail?”
“….really appreciate it…. thanks!”

So here is my quick answer.

It’s simply really.

Look at the picture of the woman in this post.

See how her lips are shaped? Like they are puckered up for a kiss, right?
I say it is like “fishy, kissy lips,” but then, who wants to kiss a fish?

Just think of your singing breathing during the Slow Leaky Tire exercise as”kissing” the air you breath while you slowly release it out of your mouth. Add the “sssssss” sound and keep the puckered lips round.

Another thing to remember is to keep your cheeks up the way they are naturally when you smile. These two things, the puckered lips and the smiling cheeks will allow you to succeed with the Slow Leaky Tire to improve your breathing for singing.
