    That 11:11 tip everything is connected is the ultimate tip!

  2. Anders Waldo says:

    How can I get rid of my crack? I crack around middle C (really low). Do you
    have any exercises to help get rid of the crack?

  3. Andrew Southworth says:

    I’m guessing that you’re a bass or a baritone, and that vocal crack is your
    falsetto/head voice vocal crack? If that is the case, then these exercises
    will help with that. The lip bubble slides through that area, the falsetto
    slides through that area, and then the full voice slides through that area.
    Just go very slow when you get around your cracking area, and keep the tone
    very pure (not breathy). This should help. If you still have issues lemme
    know.

  4. Anders Waldo says:

    Thanks so much, I’ll tell you how that works out.

  5. TheHecticModder says:

    Hey man, I just recently figured out head voice and I love how true it is
    when you get that breakthrough and you really learn what you’re doing the
    next day you really do go up 4 notes. I’m not trying to form my head voice
    but this tutorial is really good, I’ll recommend this to one of my friends
    trying to learn head voice

  6. Andrew Southworth says:

    Thanks! Yeah, singing is one of those weird things where a lot of the time
    you either get no progress, or tons of progress. I appreciate the
    recommendation.

  7. so how long will it usually takes to develop it ?

  8. summer40001 says:

    Singing is something that your’re constantly learning and developing. (kind
    of like driving lol)

  9. Jorge Delgado says:

    My break was F# above middle C and my first day doing these exercises I hit
    G! But my throat hurts a little bit after that is that normal? 

  10. MisterJimLee says:

    Ok so by learning how to transition into falsetto from chest voice
    naturally is the way to getting head voice? That always seemed
    counter-intuitive to me, I thought that my voice would learn to naturally
    go into falsetto instead of head voice, although I suppose it makes sense
    that learning control instead of trying to dive into it would help… hm…
    please respond, cracking and lack of head voice is the main insecurity I
    have with singing.

    You are amazing, thank you :)

  13. Yorick D'Hoir says:

    Been practicing this exercise daily now. Seems that the longer I practice,
    the harder it is for me to hit high notes in lipbubbles.

  14. Gabriel Andrade says:

    I have a question. In 3:00 you said we should go up and down in octaves,
    starting from C, then going up to C# etc. Well, when should I stop going
    up? it gets really dificult when I start from middle C.

  15. xXAeon89Xx says:

    When I do it at low volume, it’s easy, but I’m used 2 higher volumes and
    that crack comes when I go higher in pitch without lowering my larynx or
    squeezing my neck… that is, when I sing vowels like e or u ! it’s
    frustrating as hell :(

  16. Gabriel Andrade says:

    Is it normal for the voice to get a little unstable and distorted during
    the transition in the last exercise?

  17. Vanishing Moonlight says:

    Please, answer to me when possible, but answer please 🙂

    Well… I’m going to explain my problem in blending chest and head voice
    with lip bubbles.

    I’ve got two different voices:

    -The speaking voice, which resonates in my chest and it’s full, loud, and
    my higher note in that voice is E4 (pushing up my voice and straining). If
    I try to hit F4, the sound just doesn’t come out, and the only thing I can
    hear is air.
    -The high one, which is light, angelic and not breathy, it’s even resonant
    and loud too, not as loud as my chest voice, but it’s loud. I can go from
    G4 to C6. When singing G4-A4-B4-C5 and D5 I feel my mouth buzzing. G4 has
    got a big vibration in my mouth, and the higher I go, vibrations goes up
    through my head and each note has got less vibration in my mouth (A4 is
    less vibrant than G4, B4 is less vibrant than A4…), and when I hit E5 the
    vibration just disappear and the following notes don’t resonate in
    anywhere. I don’t know if it’s head voice or falsetto. I can only tell that
    it’s not breathy, it’s loud and powerful.

    Well, then I say: “I’ll start doing lip bubbles from my chest voice” and I
    go C4, D4, E4… and the F4 doesn’t come out, so I say “okay, let’s start
    from the high voice” and I go G5, F5, E5, D5, C5 (I start feeling my mouth
    buzzing) B4, A4, G4 (at this point my mouth is buzzing a lot) but, when I
    want to hit F4… then it jumps from F4 to E3!! It jumps an octave into my
    chest voice!!

    So, if I can’t start from chest voice, but I can’t start from the high
    voice… how can I do lip bubbles then???

    Please, help me with this 🙁 I’m 15 years old I don’t know if that’s
    important but it’s for you to know please help 🙁 

  18. Montekristo Jeshua says:

    nice you explanation~~!!! But the problem is me~~ i can not find my head
    voice!!!..when i go up trying to allocate my voice i cant

  19. Aldrin Laoang says:

    I found out that i easily understand these video than those with the line of
    “hi, im blah blah blah, professional blah blah blah at the blah blah
    blah…”

    XD

    anyway thanks

  20. Gino Kemp says:

    Great advice man I’m trying to sing songs from the post hardcore genre they
    seem to sing pretty high so I’m trying to work on my voice to sound like
    that but really thank you :D

  21. Could you say you’re bass, baritone or tenor?

  22. Steve Collins says:

    Hey this is great advice I already gained a note. Lmao… daily exercise
    from now on. I literally felt something click in my head and I was like
    yaaaah HHHH

  23. Robert Schirm says:

    I still don’t understand how to go into head voice instead of falsetto, or
    what it should feel like to be in head voice instead of falsetto.
    Unfortunately vocal coach is not an option for me, which is why I’m using
    YouTube videos. 

  24. Asdasd Asdasd says:

    unbelievable how a guy that knows nothing about singing teaches other how
    to sing.

    all your “high notes” were falsetto moron.

  25. Baran Özdemir says:

    That’s a great video and I have a question: Should my Larynx stay neutral
    while I’m singing in my head voice? Cause my larynx raises and I can’t go
    forward from d5.
    Thanks :)

  26. Charles Lau says:

    just wondering. is there anyone who was born without a passaggio break?

  27. This is really fantastic, you explain things very well and the lack of a
    need to impress like all those “guru” vocal coaches on youtube really helps
    cut to the chase.

    I think a breathe support video explaining the basics of appoggio/breathe
    control would be very helpful paired with this video.
    Thanks again

  28. Joseph Watkins says:

    Very Good vid. Thanks so much for sharing bro; Jesus Christ Bless! :)

  29. Luke Tyler says:

    how do I make my head voice stronger

  30. Si Yeong Yu says:

    how about tongue position when we are singing head voice?

  31. TheSandkastenverbot says:

    Hi Andrew, thanks for sharing this information! I’m a bit confused about
    what you said about support: my singing teacher told me to take great care
    not to flex the abs but only to move your diaphragm downwards. Doing that,
    the belly gets harder, but not as hard as when you flex your abs. Also,
    moving the diaphragm makes the belly bigger, tensing the abs makes it
    rather smaller. Is that making sense and would you agree with that?

  32. Paul Lennon says:

    hi do you know when you hit you highest note like an e5 is possible to
    actually extend more I don’t see how it’s possible

  33. Paul Shinoda says:

    Dude, seriously, its the best guide i found on youtube about improving head
    voice.

  34. xDeMOnzx1 says:

    wat you do to eliminate the crak or the disconection please i need to know
    i just du a good hig notes falseto but in the lows, i mean in the crak ,
    there are so weak

  35. Dominika Pionteg says:

    Hello. Im a lower voice type. I cant sing in head voice because I feel like
    im strainning. Do you have a tip?

  36. Vee Kicks says:

    Mate, thanks so much. This is the first practical video I’ve seen
    demonstrate the difference between head and falsetto. I’ve been going from
    chest up to head voice which, now I know, was often falsetto, for some
    reason I believed that falsetto was a higher pitch than head voice. Now it
    all makes sense. Great stuff.

  37. Owen Rollins says:

    We will also teach you in this singing course how to sing in close harmony – your voice may be best suited to singing the melody line, but you may be better at singing the harmony part, in which case we will teach you how to sing in harmony with the melody.
