This magic trick doesn’t make your choir’s sound any bigger or brighter – but what it can do for blend is astonishing.
1.Place the left hand lightly on top of the head
2.Index and middle fingers of right hand (Peter Pointer and Toby tall) lightly touch the end of the nose.
3.Wait till you can feel a pulse at the tip of the nose
You’re done – that’s it.
You can test the technique’s effectiveness by having the choir sing one phrase of a song – doing the holding point – then singing the same phrase again.
It’s also so calming that I’ve used it with various singing groups right before the curtain opens.
This one really is magic!
