gandlethorpe Posted April 16, 2012 Share Posted April 16, 2012 For the longest time, my main goal has been to conquer my break. When I was just singing on my own, I developed the bad habit of pulling chest whenever I needed to sing past E4. That was until I started reading and watching videos about mixed voice. For a while, I tried to find it on my own, but finally became frustrated and started seeing an SLS teacher. Most of the exercises she gives me are the ones I've seen elsewhere, such as the octave-and-a-half arpeggios. I don't doubt them, especially after hearing a recording of Michael Jackson doing the same stuff, but sometimes I feel like I'm not improving or I'm doing it wrong. I'm still confused about head voice and whether the noise I'm making is or isn't falsetto. My biggest concern is that I'm not doing anything about the bridge and just perpetuating the separation between my lower and higher registers. http://soundcloud.com/gandlethorpe/ah-exercise Here's a recording of me doing an octave-and-a-half exercise on "ah" as in "cat". I need to know whether I'm actually accomplishing something by doing this the way I'm doing it, or I'm just wasting my time and breath. Another thing I need to know is whether I'm actually achieving some kind of head voice, or it's just falsetto. Thanks for any help. Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
