Oups, sorry Jarle... I told you I was tired. Mr. Green
Just had a few students with kan problems.

Flat pitch surely diaphragm support and also some embouchure...

Think "Early Bob Dylan" for nasal singing.

Think "Pavarotti" for diaphragm singing.

Now sing like Bob and then sing like Luciano.

Whatever you did differently is probably related to the diaphragm. Mr. Green

Thanks again everyone contributing.
Apparently just asking this qustions and putting it into my awareness makes improvement :-)


So next question: If regular RO is D in western scale, how high should I be able to move to play Kari?
I find moving lower, to meri, not so difficult, but Kari....

An exercise I do is to play for example on ro: D, Db, D, Eb, D only by tightening and loosening lips, no head movements. It is not easy to get those pitches but try to get it as close as possible. By doing this you will develop a lot of control.

Yes, I agree Brian. I make my students do that as well... so that they realise that it is not only the head position that changes pitch but also embouchure.
Nice stuff here! Okay
Have fun! to Jarle and others!

Thanks for sharing.

I remember something like 6 months ago my teacher was showing me how its possible to play and move the tongue around simultaneously.

Of course I couldn't do it!
But yesterday I suddenly discovered that I could do it no problem :-)
and trying what Brian mentions above is also possible, but not as wide in the pitch intervall (yet).
Great!

Kiku, what you are saying would make sense if this thread was about Kan :-D
But I think we are many that are happy and neeed to learn about Kan as well.


I'm glad she did, those tips helped me a lot with my kan problem again.

Thank you Smile
