Singing over the Break

Saturday, August 9th, 2014

Singing over ‘the break’ in ones voice can be tricky initially, but with practice, patience, and a willingness to endure singing sensations that are not what you’re accustomed to it can be seamless and beautiful.

I’ve now done videos for tenor range and alto range vocalists on Youtube. The alto range practice video is below. In both cases, though I don’t mention this in the videos, it’s critical to be open minded about the sensations and sounds that will come out of your mouth as you smooth out this register transition in the voice. It pays to keep in mind that these exercises are largely designed to break old habits and install new ones in their place. The overall tonal quality that you sing with may not be balanced initially. It will take practice. As the tone evens out and resonances from chest through head begin to match, still more diligence and practice are required for consistency and reliability to increase.

Patience is key. Recording yourself for evaluation is key. A good coach, or a Skype session with me can assist in this process. Feel free to get in touch if you have any questions or would like more clarification. All the best!
