Hello Silver Fox
Again, apologies for not replying sooner!
Really glad that you are considering doing the singing exercises.
You can be assured that the SfS exercises are specifically designed for snorers and focus toning activity (relentlessly!) on the muscles of the soft palate, tongue and nasopharynx and in this they differ from ordinary singing exercises.
Let me just give you an example of working the soft pallet....it is something that I sometimes sing when I am on holiday, first ascertaining that there is no one around!!!!
...with the tip of your tongue resting at the back of your lower teeth and your mouth slightly open, sing, as loudly as your dare, to the tune of "God Save the Queen" or "La Vie en Rose"...it could be anything really....the word KUNG...it could be KONG....KING is not quite so good..........you have to make that sound (separately) to every note in the tune.don't forget to breathe in every now and again!
If you do this properly you will have the sense of the soft pallet having been worked.........this exercise is not part of the course, it is just one that I have made up!!! but it will demonstrate that ordinary singing, and ordinary singing exercises are a totally different ballgame!
Just for the record, I too have a loud voice, (being kids in a mill working family, you had to shout at the meal table!) and the last few years have sung in a few amateur concerts, a "Forties night" coming up next month!
Hope you do give "Singing for Snorers" a go, there is a link to the website nr the beginning of the thread. All the very best Ken
