Being a Philly native where people chew their words didn’t do me any favors in the resonator department. I’ve struggled with a collapsed soft palate and high larynx condition from the ripe old age of 9, where I learned to sing by screaming along with Orphan Annie. I’ve worked with the cup only a handful of times and am already easily singing very high tessitura repertoire that I’ve struggled mightily with up until now.
I’m a coloratura soprano. I use the straw in water and with that, I can easily phonate the A an octave below middle C. I sing my rep once through with the cup and the difference in freedom and breath pressure is astounding.
My friends tell me I sound “smooth as chocolate” when I sing after using this. Haha. Only down side was shipping. Paid for 2-day but it fell on a holiday weekend so it took 5-6 days to get to where I was. But that’s just USPS for you so it is what it is. (This was not the voice straw company’s fault) Overall great experience with my straw! I am telling all of my singer friends about this
Really helped me open my chest voice. Grateful that I bought it!
Love the straws . It has been a game changer in my voice and expanded my range seamlessly
