The Dog, the Duck and the Dino

Priscilla Zimmermann teaching a class at SFCC

Body alignment is fundamental to singing!

There are two postures that are common to those who need to improve their alignment for singing:

1. The Dog – where the pelvis is tipped forward.

2. The Duck – where the pelvis is tipped back.

Both of these inhibits deep breathing on the part of the singer!

The Dino – or Dinosaur – is the goal!!

The Dino posture, which is also represented by typical regal stance, separates the pelvis from the ribcage resulting in a lifted stance. This is ideal for effective deep breathing for singing.
