Clinical Study: The omohyoid muscle rising to the surface when vocalizing

In a clinical study I investigated 100 people who have reported the issue of their omohyoid muscle rising to the surface when vocalizing. The following results showcase if one or both sides is the most common.
78 people had the right or left omohyoid muscle rise to the surface when vocalizing
22 people had both sides of their omohyoid muscle rise to the surface when vocalizing
In conclusion, results suggest that more than 80% of people have only ‘one side’ of their omohyoid muscle rise to the surface when vocalizing. Please see the below photos to identify this action.

Note: 98 of the 100 people are at a glance candidates for having LDP(Larynx Deep Position). I can see a direct connection between people having LDP if their omohyoid muscle rises up to the surface when vocalizing.

Educational study for child singers

It is going to be harder to master singing or playing an instrument in the hopes of one day becoming a professional after the age of eight.
When it comes to children, earlier is easier and better to start learning how to sing or play an instrument.
First, let the child acquire good hearing ability, then let them listen not only to classical music but also many other genres of music such as Pop or Rock. Listening to many genres will assist in finding out what kind of music your child likes best and will also hold their attention by keeping them entertained. This listening can start at early as when the baby is in the womb, and should continue after birth.
As we get older, humans in general, unconsciously copy sound that they listen to. This is known as the mirror effect.
So, because of this mirror effect I encourage children to hear as many varieties and practice mimicking music as often as possible.
No need to be super good at singing when under the eight, because the muscles related vocalization are still underdeveloped. The objective is to practice singing a minimum of one song a day. Singing a song everyday will develop those healthy muscles for vocalization by keeping them active and flexible. Practicing, then keeping those qualities will help any child to have a good voice by the age of eight and be on the right track to becoming a professional singer later in life.
If you want your children to grow to be aspiring young singers, please start their educational music studies as early as you can!

You voice will get better if you use a foot insole in your shoes

Sorbothane is an elastic polymer which is considered good vibration damping material, an acoustic insulator. I cut and added insole inserts of the same shock absorbing material as Sorbothane, and put them into each one of my shoes. Then, I sang a song Karaoke style. After putting the shoes and singing I got great feedback, such as: your voice sounds better, your voice range got wider, your high-pitched voice sounds clearer, and your low voice sounds richer.
The following are a few reasons why your voice sounds better if you put comforting insole inserts into your shoes when you sing a song.
1.You can relax your extra muscle when using an insole, and be able to focus more on your singing.
2.Your ability to control vibrations and extra shaking when singing, making the voice clearer.
3.When you have to let out your high-pitched voice quickly, having cushioned insoles can keep increase balance and posture, in turn helping muscle movements be smoother and work better.
Please try it.

Note:When making insoles for people who have weakened/hurt knees or have osteoarthritis of the knees, be really exact and correctly measure the Q-Angle to get the best fit. The Q-Angle is the angle formed by lines representing the pull of the quadriceps muscle and the axis of the patellar tendon.
