Abstract

Learning and teaching the principles of respiration, breathing and physiology are the basis of a proper and professional singing education. Therefore, in this study, first, the topic of respiration, which is the most essential body function for living creatures, had been explained in either anatomically or functional ways. In doing so, first, scientific information about the continuous cycling of the low and high atmospheric pressures causing respiration in the body is presented. Later, basic information about the respiratory organs (diaphragm, lungs, thoracic and abdominal muscles) was given, and then these organs were mentioned in terms of their role in singing and their versatility. Then, the stages of use of these varieties are explained theoretically, with the help of pictures. Finally, all the singers who want to use their voice correctly, and all the information given for those who use their voice intensively in business life (announcers, teachers ... etc), are presented in the data, conclusions and recommendations necessary for blending and singing correctly. The information about improvable respiration for the ones, whom are using their voices professionally, had been combined from the most current sources, gathered with our own information. In this study, in different sections; the definition of respiration, physiology of respiration, varieties of respiration, the organs which are supporting respiration and functions of them, and the most effective use of them had been mentioned. Finally, suggestions on protecting the voice, true ways of respiration and their functions had been examined. As a result, other breath control methods taught in different forms of singing education were also identified and information on the most appropriate form of breathing and its control was provided.
