    the way I explain why someone should “think” of holding back the air is to
    create proper compression (supra and sub). You don’t physically hold the
    air back, but you regulate the airflow so it’s balanced and a steady
    stream. I never got the whole “feels like I’m inhaling” thing. I’ve never
    really felt that. My thought is to maintain a consistent flow of air like
    water out of a faucet. Turn it on, sing on the stream and then shut it off
    at the end of the phrase. Done. Holding your breath interrupts that flow.
    But you’re right, as the coordinations become stronger less emphasis is put
    on compression because the process has become ingrained in the muscle
    memory.

    Beautiful tone on the Smith tune.

    Good to see you again Daniel. Yes, more videos please! :-)

  3. Great video as always Daniel, i have a feeling that you can very well pack
    the things someone needs into a simple way and present them to us with
    simplicity.

    If i had to suggest a coach to someone i would say dont search for
    funny-weird terms and methods, go the simple way, go Daniels way. Ok,
    commercial mode: off, hope to see more videos from you. The lighting from
    your left should be lower i think. Have a nice day!

  4. No. You need air just a amount of when you smell a rose through your nose.
    You don’t need to deep breath.
    But of course you have to control all the time how much air you need for
    what phrase and vowels.
    Or what this holding back here means? It is confusion. You need sensation
    like you sing backwards holding your air.

    I think that singer needs even airflow or is it right?

    I missed you brotha, good video, if you want to improve the quality, i
    suggest either geting a camera, doesnt realy need to be that a good camera,
    or recording the audio separately with a microphone, then puting the audio
    over the video, or both i think that should raise the quality of the
    videos, any way, the quality of your lessons are great, the rest doesnt
    realy matter..

    Dan you sing so naturally it just flows and I like that… I sing like I’m
    taking a crap….it sounds like that too. I also have hemorrhoids… I
    think I took the power push too far. I also like your new hairdo. Can you
    sing some King Diamond next lesson….his voice is awesome.

  8. Matt Corey says:

    The last post was a joke obviously…Dan your the man. I have learned so
    much from you and you have helped me out so much. You have helped me to get
    back to ground zero when I have been pushing my voice in the wrong way for
    the sake of tone.

    Another great video and great singing by a great teacher. If I may comment
    on the concept of “holding back the air” I believe a lot of this has to do
    with how you wish to sound. A singer needs to develop the ability to
    control exhalation whether singing light or very strongly. The air
    “velocity” has to be controlled so the vocal folds are not bombarded by
    excessive air pressure. It’s the body, the lower core muscles that regulate
    this pressure. You have to develop your body to the point where you can
    apply the pressure or place the pressure to the vocal folds.
