One of the fundamentals of singing is to understand the importance of getting and remaining unstuck so that we can always move from floor to floor.
If we think of the voice using a house analogy, then we would most definitely not want to always be in the basement. What about going to the first floor to cook in the kitchen, or to the second floor so that we can take a nap in the comfy bed?
If we are stuck in one area and cannot move to another area, then that means the vocal muscles are malfunctioning, and singing songs is not very fun.
Specifically designed exercises can address the issue so that our muscles are more free to move and adjust according to laws of nature. The vocal cords assume the correct vibratory length, width, and depth for where we are – thickest for the basement and progressively smaller and thinner as we move up to the higher floors in our vocal house.
Getting unstuck is like repairing or building the staircases between the floors so we can run up and down to the different floors with complete access to our whole vocal house!
