Techniques for Singers

Welcome to Madeleine Harvey’s “Total Voice Method”, Lesson 7: Maximize Your Breath, Part 1 – The Inhale. This downloadable voice lesson is all about breathing techniques for singers. Well, more specifically, “the inhale.” We’ll be focusing on some of the best techniques you can use to get the most out of your breath with the least amount of effort. This will increase your stamina, calm your mind, and give you more power and consistency when you sing.

What to Expect in this Voice Lesson


The majority of these exercises are best performed with 100% of your attention. To get the most of these exercises, perform them at a time and in a place that will allow you uninterrupted focus.


There will be times within this lesson that will require standing, the use of your hands, or the use of your imagination. Please allow yourself the freedom to do this. The muscle reflexes we are targeting are small and very subtle. This degree of focus allows us to notice small changes in our body as they happen.

Have Fun!

Vocal exploration is not meant to be work. It is meant to be an exploration of your own personal awesomeness. So explore your voice. Allow yourself the opportunity to experience the fullness of your amazing natural sound.
