Default Re: Teachers and diaphragm vibrato

Vibrato is ingrained in our musical culture. Listen to any professional singer or solo instrumentalist and you hear it. It adds life and richness to the tone. So it may come automatically from us being used to hearing it everywhere. I developed vibrato when I started playing trumpet, trying to emulate the professional trumpeters I'd hear. When I've heard some of the old recordings of cantaireachd they've sung it with vibrato. But also maybe it's instinctual from humans having done it for thousands of years.
