If the tempo was unsteady, the line will go up for rushing, or down for dragging. Hover or tap on the line to reveal more information!

Tool: Singing Straw

THE SCIENCE

What is straw phonation?

Singing through a straw is a powerful “semi-occluded vocal tract”(SOVT) exercise, which means that as you vocalize, the air coming out of your mouth is partially blocked. This creates a resistance in the vocal tract, which sends energy back to the vocal folds and helps them vibrate more efficiently. Basically, magic.
