Discover How to Sing Better In Your Head Voice Without Strain or Whispers
This is most likely one of the most asked questions when it comes to vocal training among males and females.
In today’s video, Kimberly Smith answers the question for how to sing better in your head voice.
Truth is, many singers (especially beginners) often feel more tension as they move up into their head voice registers.
So, Kim shares 3 tips in this video to help make it easier for you to learn how to sing falsetto the right way.
3 Quick Steps to Better Head Voice Singing
The exciting part is, once you learn these head voice singing tips, you’ll be amazed at how well you can sing falsetto. So, let’s get started and turn you into a singing machine!
Number One: Learn How to Breath When You Sing
This is a given. Learning how to breathe when you sing is essential if you want to get the voice you want.
Breathing makes all the difference in the world when it comes to singing correctly. Kim says to sing from just above your navel instead of your throat.
Now, practice your siren noises but don’t scare the kids. 🙂
Number Two: Watch the Tongue as You Sing in Your Head Voice
Next, lower your tongue and keep it soft as you do the sirens. Kim demonstrates this well.
You should notice an immediate difference when you use this method.
Number Three: Allow More Space to Get the Most from Your Head Voice
Most beginner singers don’t pay much attention to making space when they try to sing with their head voice. And, this causes tension and strain on their voice and the singer wonders why he or she can’t reach those high notes.
Now, you don’t have to be in that category any longer.
The soft palate in your mouth is located at the back of the roof of your mouth. You can feel it with your thumb.
This palate lifts when you yawn or laugh. (BTW, yawning is a good warm up singing exercise too.)
So, as you start to inhale, open up that space to allow room for your head voice to come out.
Now, try this – Breathe in, open up the soft palate, and try the siren sounds again. Do you hear and feel the difference?
Finally – Continue to Rid Your Body of Tension
Now that you know the basics of getting the most from your head voice, keep working to find areas of tension in your body.
This way, you’re singing in a relaxed state of mind.
After all, singing is supposed to be fun, isn’t it? Of course it is.
Now, go out and do it!
