Soft Palate Stuck? Check The Jaw

A quick tip today for a common vocal problem... if you can't accomplish your "sweet spot sound" on a sustained note, there's a strong possibility your soft palate is not lifting enough. If that's the case... check to see if you're freezing your jaw as you hold the note. Drop jaw tension, allowing a subtle drop and/or swing of the jaw, and the soft palate will let go, too.

Happy sustaining!
