    Hi Karyn,
    This is a very nice vid! Really good demo of exercises and explaining the important role of mental imaging…never underestimate the value of that in practice! Love your little anecdotes too, wish my kids got even half as happy with leftovers LOL!!
    All the best,

    Very nice video thanks! It’s a good topic. The mental rehearsal sounds a good strategy. Thinking on yawns and ‘woops’ though, I think these are going to put me into my high register anyway, the ‘worry tones’ for me are C# and D above my high C in a fuller/mixed sound. If I only needed to sing them in falsetto I don’t think I’d have the problem.

  4. Hi when you talked about the Incipient Yawn, is that same as “inner smile”? I’ve been very confused about this. I’m searching all over the place and seem like the inner smile is lifting your cheek base on Mr. Edward L. Johnson. Could you please talk about this more? And it seem like one can’t lift their cheek for so much, only a little. I have heard that the higher you go, the bigger space you should be open inside, how to achieve that if you can only lift your cheek to a certain degree? Thank you

    Hi Karen, I am researching some of these physiological terms to understand some of your videos better. I am stuck at at the difference between the glottis and the aryepiglottic sphincter or the aryepiglottic fold. I read that they’re both the entrance to the larynx. Please tell me what the difference is. Thanks !
