A lot of times when I sing I get air in my stomach and I do not know if it is because I am breathing incorrectly or not. What do you think, and if you think that I am breathing incorrectly, what do you suggest that I do. I am also having trouble with my tone. Sometimes I sound nasal on Oooooo vowels. I have started relaxing my jaw and flaring my nostrils; that feels right but I am not sure if it is right. What exactly should it feel like to sing correctly?
My best guess would be that something with your digestive system is activated by singing. Sometimes when people have a drink,especially if it is carbonated, or even if it is just plain water, they burp or have a sense of “air in the stomach.” Also, if you ate recently, singing can churn up your digestive process and cause this. As for the nasality, you likely have the back of your tongue raised too high. Practice keeping some space between your tongue and soft palate.
