Singing for PTSD and Balanced Mental Health > I am a Progressive Kinesiology Practitioner with an unbalanced throat chakra and weakened lung capacity due to a hospital-acquired infection that led to a heart attack, coma and worse. So why am I recording myself learning to breathe again by learning to sing?

Singing can have some of the same effects as exercise, like the release of endorphins, which give the singer an overall “lifted” feeling and are associated with stress reduction. It’s also an aerobic activity, meaning it gets more oxygen into the blood for better circulation, which tends to promote a good mood.

Singing actually changes the brain by moving musical vibrations through you thereby altering both your physical and emotional landscape. Because singing is like getting a dose of the perfect tranquiliser, it really does soothe your nerves and elevate your spirit. The singer feels both calm and energized and it doesn’t cost anything.

How Singing is Created Vocal Anatomy

Although there’s a part of the body called “the voice box” (also known as the larynx), singing and speaking require far more than the use of this one organ. Singers create sound by using the abdominal and back muscles, the rib cage, lungs, the oral cavity, and more.

The vocal cords (medically, they are “vocal folds”) are membranes that snap open and closed while singing, speaking, or making noises.  As air pressure builds up against them, the folds snap together and a sound is created. When they are snapped gently, a soft sound is heard; when they snap forcefully, a loud sound is the result. The quicker the cords open and close, the higher the resulting pitch will be. These are durable little suckers: vocal cords open and close 100 times per second during normal speech.

The “false” vocal folds should not be confused with the folds described above. The false vocal folds sit just above the true vocal cords and prevent food, etc. from entering the trachea when swallowing. They typically don’t play a major role in speech or singing.

When you start to sing, you begin by breathing. The muscles of the larynx bring the vocal cords together. They stay closed until enough breath (i.e., enough pressure) builds up and a burst of air escapes through the cords. As you run out of breath, the vocal cords are once again drawn together. So now you know the vocal cords do not work like a stringed instrument; they don’t produce sound by vibrating against each other. Sound is actually produced by the pressure changes created when small jets of air pass through moving vocal cords. This is why it can be helpful to think of breath control as the steam engine that makes the machinery of singing function. Full Article: Voice Studio   

VOCAL COACH ONBOARD PROJECT > Tee Green

Lara Wilson is blessed with two old friends with extraordinary musical talent and hearts of gold. Tee Green can earn a fortune as a vocal coach to the signed artist or established singer that wants to up their game. He can also earn very well as a performer, singer-songwriter with a 4.5-octave range golden voice of his own. He’s also a producer of his own material and others. He’s one of the best and also works (on the quiet) with those recommended to him by psychiatrists and therapists to help with all forms of anxiety and depression right across the board. Another incredible multi-talented artist is Suzi Gee and her GEEforce projects that teach children music and includes adult retreats and simple but effective quick-fix yoga techniques. More about her work and contribution next time. Here is something Tee Green did for the NHS at the first news of the so-called Pandemic of Coronavirus. He’s first to step up to the plate to help people because he cares.

Mind games: Playing mind games is the largely conscious struggle for psychological one-upmanship, often employing passive-aggressive behaviour to specifically demoralize or dis-empower the thinking subject, making the aggressor look superior; also referred to as power games and head games.
