Black Dog Posted January 29, 2015 Share Posted January 29, 2015 I should say I'm currently without a singing teacher, I've been "on the bench" for about an year but intend to resume lessons shortly (in a couple of weeks). The thing is I have no experience belting, so it might be I misunderstood what it is and what is actually happenning. I was doing some warm ups to get back on my feet and decided to see if I could find my first and second passagios (chest to middle and middle to head), they seem to be around d4 and g4 (used a phone app called pitch analyzer to minimize the possibility of mistakes), though I kinda have to force myself a bit to reach that g4 without breaking from f#4, I can also reach a g#4 without breaking but with some strain, on the lower passagio I can go higher than d4 (d4 seems pretty comfortable), to e4 I think, but that is also strained. And just to be complete, on lower register I guess I can go to f#2 but I can't actually sing until c#3, an even then, calling that singing would be a great abuse of language. To the point: I know about proper breathing support but to reach the higher notes I've been kinda pressing my voice down from where it is ressonating, as if I was trying to send the air back, and I don't know if this is belting or if it's an aspect of proper breating support I was not doing correctly. Definitely feeling the highest region of my chest, where it connects to the neck, vibrating and some neck tension on that g4 and g#4. Any way I can identify or understand better what I'm doing? Also, regarding idenitification of the passagio, if I can reach a g4 on middle register but it breaks to g#4 on head, is my passagio g4 or g#4? Thanks!
