Aphet Posted April 26, 2012 Share Posted April 26, 2012 So, I'm desperate for some advice because I'm... having a bit of trouble. I'm a bass-baritone and I have a very strong falsetto that I've been interested in doing countertenor pieces with. Now, therein lay the problem. My falsetto is very strong, yes, however I have that regular break that jumps into falsetto, but then inside of my falsetto I have another break. The first break leads into this lower falsetto that overlaps with tenor range, but according to my voice teacher is still falsetto. And -then- I have another break that jumps into an extremely high falsetto that, according to my coloratura friend, sounds stunning (this being up in the ranges up to and past High C.) My problem is that in order to actually work on a piece in this range of my voice, I need to somehow fix a few issues I've been having. Firstly, there is an area in my falsetto that merely denies me: that meaning, I can only sing there if I push it (and it probably isn't a healthy thing. It just seems... for lack of better word dumb that I can sing well higher than that, and lower than that.) Secondly, if I'm not exactly thinking about it I can sing into that high c range easily and without thought. After singing up there a little bit, however, it becomes increasingly difficult to get past the second break that I earlier mentioned. Is it possibly because once I start thinking about it, I push too hard? I'm not sure, but I'd greatly like some advice. Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
