I find that sometimes my voice sounds tense and not smooth and relaxed. I have discovered it is because my Larynx is in a high position instead of a low position in my throat. My question is, how can I make my Larynx go low while I am singing?
The larynx should not be pushed low either — you simply want it to remain as stable as possible without putting pressure of any kind on it. If you very lightly touch your larynx while you breathe normally, you will notice it just remains still. This is pretty much what it should do while singing. There a a few things you can do to help:
1) Make sure your posture is balanced and expansive, that your shoulders are relaxed and that your head is level (that the chin is not lifted or tucked).
2) Make sure your tongue is not pulling high and back in your throat.
3) Don’t open your mouth excessively wide or grip your jaw.
4) Expand your ribs when you inhale and try to keep them open while you sing in order to pace the flow of air and keep pressure off the voice.
5) Do sirens while very lightly touching the larynx to help you focus on keeping it as stable as possible.
