SOVT AMA part 2 part 2! More of your questions
Play • 51 min

We had so much material on SOVT techniques, straws and AMAs that we had to split it in 2! Here is part 2 of Oren Boder's return visit. All 3 of us answer questions on:

  • Athletic vocal exercises - what does that mean?
  • The difference between athletic, therapeutic and agility SOVT work
  • A/C versus D/C backpressure and what it means for your vocal folds
  • Lumpy runs and how to avoid them
  • When not to use straws
  • Why you might want to match your straw to a lower glottal impedance before building resistance
  • Oren's take on teachers who claim SOVT isn't as useful for M2 singing
  • Why SOVT exercises DON'T force a change in vibration and what they DO change
  • Using "Puffy cheeks" and straws
  • A top tip from Oren, Jeremy and Gillyanne to take away

You can get Oren's brilliant metal straw (we highly recommend it) from - use the code Vocalprocess to get 15% off your shiny new straw

You can learn more about SOVT techniques on Oren's online (hands-off) course here (10% off with the code VocalProcess)

Or join Oren, Gillyanne and Jeremy for a repeat of the LIVE online SOVT workshop here

Watch Jeremy and Gillyanne use the straw when they coach Musical Theatre vocal and performance techniques
