How to Sing in HEAD VOICE (Lesson 2): 2 EXERCISES for Retaining Authentic Resonating Space

In this second lesson on how to sing in head voice, I talk about the need for retaining the authentic resonating space within the vocal tract as we ascend in pitch. I offer an exercise for helping to achieve this space and another for retaining the ‘ring’ in the voice.

    1. I’m really referring to the secondo passaggio. Some males do move into M2 at or around their primo passaggio. Are you lower voiced (e.g., a bass)? If so, your lower passaggio might be closer to A3 or Ab3. It’s also possible that what you’re experiencing at G3 is an acoustical, rather than laryngeal, shift, which is common around that pitch. In any case, learning to acoustically close off your vowels – something that Ken Bozeman and I discussed in my last video – can make it easier to stay in M1 higher without feeling strain. Of course, learning to extend your ‘call’ or ‘yell’ (acoustically open singing) is another approach. In another video, I share a Melissa Cross exercise (the three rainbows) that might help you grow this M1 range gradually over time:
