  1. It depends on how you understand it. The most important thing is proper technique and then sensations follow. With minimal breath support you want to keep the thinnest most relaxed voice with minimal breath support that will feel like you’re keep your voice as back as possible and then let the resonance be filled up with the tone in the front. That’s about opening up space to be filled with tone. But yeah, yelling denotes tension. One can be loud with the smallest voice in the vocal folds.

  2. @rhdtv2002 Most people, even voice teachers, don’t know what the difference between falsetto and head is. If you know how to get into your whistle register, sing in your whistle voice but in he ad voice range (lower than whistle), by the time you get that low, your whistle voice will be like “O” and no more “aah” well that’s falsetto. It’s like in front of your regular voice. The other thing that is just like a woman’s head voice is really also head voice in men. And women can have falsetto too

  3. PS If you don’t know how to get into your whistle voice, it will be harder to explain the difference or tell you whether you are singing in head or whistle 🙁

  4. WOW, men have head voice too. Girls have falsetto too. She obviously doesn’t know what she’s talking about. Falsetto is a register in the Head voice. It’s like saying a computer has a keyboard while a mac has a mouse. They have BOTH. And so do guys and girls have both Falsetto and Head Voice.

    head voice is up high and airy, belt voice is lower in the chest and fuller with a more mouthy open throat. not forward and back, up and down, thats why its head and chest, not nose and base of neck lol.

  6. She has no idea what she’s talking about.

    It is NOT placed in the back, you will kill your voice is you listen to her. It’s placed in the front. My head buzzes when I try placing my voice forward. I get headaches. XD

  7. she is placing it forward, she just doesn’t realize. She does this naturally. most have to be told how to do this. Teaching is much more detailed than this video! She should talk about the forward aim…

  8. @bwaystar123 “belt is placed forward not back” some people sing less forward than others and there’s nothing wrong or hurtful about it (for example Mariah Carey in comparison to Whitney Houston)

  9. Some people can switch their air position without moving their mouths from forward to mid and back again. 🙂 Head voice is higher register without singing falsetto. Nancy Wilson of Heart is all head voice. Linda Ronstadt too. 🙂

    This is not a healthy technique. The sound should be produced forward, she is teaching a swallowed sound. I don’t think she fully knows what she is talking about.
