Editor’s Note: Joanna from The Voice of Your Life blog pointed out a few things that we thought are worth adding in:
Lung capacity is important, but not as important as training to MANAGE the outflow of air. I agree that swimming is a great exercise for singers, because it requires both. Many people I see with damaged voices have tried to push out (expel) too much air; this is the opposite of real breath support.
Also, recent acoustics research resonators are mainly in the throat, even though we experience them in nose and face.
