How to use
the Singing / Straw
the Singing / Straw
The Singing / Straw is the next evolution in singing.
The first reusable and customizable straw phonation tool for singers, speakers, and vocalists that promotes vocal efficiency and reduces tension.
Singing through a straw is a powerful “semi-occluded vocal tract” exercise, which means that as you vocalize, the air coming out of your mouth is partially blocked. This creates a resistance in the vocal tract, which sends energy back to the vocal folds and helps them vibrate more efficiently. Basically, magic.
But don’t just ask us. Ask the world’s leading Vocologist Dr. Ingo Titze. His pioneering research revealed that straw phonation correctly helps to “stretch and un-press” the vocal folds to lessen the impact of voice use, promote optimal vibration, and reduce muscular tension.
Using the Singing / Straw couldn't be simpler: just sing with your lips around the straw.
Do this for a minute or so, then go back to singing or speaking and see if you notice a difference. If you’re doing it correctly, singing should feel lighter and easier. Seriously, it's that simple.
Use your Singing / Straw in your warm-ups, cool-downs, or even in between songs during a performance. Straw phonation is a powerful and discreet way to bring your voice back into balance and maintain long-term vocal health—wherever and whenever you need it.
Practice with your Singing / Straw for a minute or so, and you should notice a difference almost immediately.
• An ease or "lightening" of your voice
• Smoother sound, less fry
• Reduced tension and strain
• More consistent vibrato
• Smoother vocal transitions
• Fewer vocal "cracks"
• More flexibility for riffing
The Singing / Straw has become my favorite gadget to train and take care of my voice. After I suffered from a strong laryngitis that left me with dysphonia, using the Singing / Straw just 5 minutes every day helped me recover my voice.Sandro León | Vocal Coach and Singer-Songwriter
