Fundamental to developing vibrato, and to your singing over all, is your breath support. People might use the term “breath support” and mean different things; but when I say breath support, I mean using your body to stay expanded, use that air efficiently, and support the sound, rather than just relying on the throat. Let's work through some exercises in this lesson so we can practice good breath support together.
