I dont know how to breathe.

More specifically, I dont know how to breathe while singing. Like, if I'm singing something, it always feels like I'm out of breath and can't catch up to the music after breathing in. I never took voice lessons or anything. My question is, is there a right way/technique to breathing and singing, or do you just have to have huge lungs and whatnot?

well, when you sing, you have to breathe using your diaphragm. breathing with your diaphragm results in deep breaths, your core expanding, and your shoulders not rising. while talking, you breathe more with your chest, which results in shorter breaths and your shoulders rising. it is rather difficult to do in the first place, but, once you know how, making it a habbit shouldn't be too much trouble. aslo, you might want to check out the "vocal advice thread" stickied at the top of the vocals forum. it explains it better than i do.

edit: oh you don't know how to breathe? ok, shouldn't be long now.
