How to Bridge the Vocal Break / Singing Through Passagio / Don’t Pull Chest
In this episode, master vocal coach Kevin Richards explains and shows you a way to sing through what is commonly referred to as the “vocal break” or passagio.
Technically the passagio doesn’t really exist; it’s not a “thing” or some dark tunnel in your range you have to navigate, but is an imbalance between vocal fold tension (the pull on the cords to stretch to higher pitches) and breath compression (the amount of pressure your exhaled air is exerting on the vocal folds).
The vocal “break” is really an area of resonance where it transitions from a throat/mouth dominate sound to a mouth/sinus resonant sound. If the balance between cord tension and breath compression is not correct, the voice sounds like it does a ‘flip’ or ‘change of gear’ into a weaker and thinner head voice or falsetto tone. This problem can be fixed quickly if you know the process and the path of navigating your resonances.
