Singing with air in the voice

I have read in the CVI book how to sing correctly with air, but I think I need a little more information. How do you know when you are doing it correctly? I am a voice teacher that is trained classically and it makes me nervous to teach the "singing with air" technique so I want to make sure I understand it clearly. It is a technique that you hear a lot in pop music.

Hi there.
Important factors to consider when teaching air:

Make sure the singer can add and remove the air in the mode of Neutral.

Volume: Around vol. 2/that means very soft (vol. scale from 1-10)

Use only 2 % of air as it keeps the singer in control and due to the fact that using more air wont make the sound sound a lot breathier.


Vowel: "AH"/far perhaps

Make sure the singer is in Neutral and that support work is performed correctly.

Make sense?
