Best techniques for singing while masked
What are the best techniques for singing while masked? Completely or partially uncovering while singing defeats the purpose, since projecting our voices increases the chance of spewing pathogens into the air. There are two problems to overcome: (1) When you take a deep breath, you tend to suck the mask into your mouth. (2) If you sing while masked, it's harder for listeners to understand the words. There are specialized masks for people who sing regularly in groups, but they're somewhat expensive and hard to obtain. Have people found any techniques to minimize the inconvenience of regular masks while keeping them effective for singing?
