Having Trouble Holding Your Notes up the Scales? An Easy Solution

If you’ve been struggling with a squeezed tone when you sing and you’re unable to figure out how to step out of that, rest assured it isn’t at all difficult to knock that out as you might think. In this article I will explain one of the easiest ways to help you hold it in without recruiting your outer larynx muscles into sound production.

Let’s say you’re using one of my prerecorded scales and you have a particular problem with producing MUM the higher you go without recruiting. Here’s how to get around that.

Hum your scale on your way up and then switch to a MUM (pronounced with more of a dumb sound MOM) on your way down.

And you can do the same with a Lip Roll up and a MUM on the way down; or Lip Roll on the way up and the vowel ‘I’ or EEEE on the way down by simply parting your lips to produce ‘I’. Don’t try to manipulate anything. Only part your lips and it’ll happen naturally. This should solve the problem quite easily, providing you stay focused and you breathe properly.

You’ll find plenty more tips in my new book 101 Letters from a Vocal Coach, available now in paperback from Amazon, Barnes & Noble and Lulu.
