Open your mouth

I find myself always asking my singers to open their mouth more when they sing. It's a simple thing that can really improve the sound. Untrained singers are usually used to frontal resonance toward the mouth and teeth. By opening the mouth, a singer stands a better chance of getting a fuller, warmer sound than one that is focused in the front.

Where else is opening your mouth a good thing? Not too many places.
