Vocal Training Mini-Course: Correcting the Top 5 Singing Mistakes (part 2)
Let me start by explaining the difference between falsetto and head voice. Flipping into falsetto—not only in your high notes but also in your mid range or transition area too—is a big part of what happens when you don’t have good vocal closure. In essence, head voice has plenty of grip, or cord closure. A lot of people have trouble distinguishing the two. But what happens with cord closure is that you have a nice sound. One way to correct that is to apply the pharyngeal resonator “NG” sound (which I covered in Part 1—if you haven’t read it you can now read the article on my blog at joettmusic.com). Ideally, you want to convert air to sound as quickly as possible, and so the good consonants to use in training with ANY scale, be they arpeggios, descending scales, chromatic scales, octaves and so forth, are the “GOO” or the “BAH” (the latter is where your lips help your vocal cords get a good grip right at the onset). And you can go right ahead and try out some of these quick-fix exercises by simply downloading piano scales to work with from my free Learn to Sing with Joett MP3s uploaded to my HulkShare page here.
