Imagery and standard vocal pedagogy techniques alone do not solve body issues with students. Most if not all need more specific techniques for body release apart from the techniques required for the act of singing.
The whole body is an instrument and the instrument has be properly tuned. When students can’t produce vibrato, have tongue tension that limits their progress, have body tension that sacrifices sound quality, etc. their teachers will tell me they are frustrated.
With the limited amount of time available in a lesson teachers must focus on the whole instrument as it applies to the music. Given good body release techniques your students’ singing will improve quickly, your reputation and results will be evident and your career will flourish.
Diaphragm training is one body awareness and development technique that works.
When the singer learns the proper release of the body and diaphragm training, apart from the act of singing, your application of good vocal instruction speeds up their progress geometrically. So, consider in your next lesson spending the first 15 minutes teaching your students body awareness.
Steven Flam has perfected the training of your diaphragm for vocal power.
