Vocal Course Lesson 3

Overview"what this lesson is about"


Your larynx, or your Adams Apple, is the cartilage that surrounds your vocal cords. Most people feel their larynx rise and fall when they sing from low note to high note, which causes a break in their voice and causes vocal strain if they sing for a long time. Your goal with this lesson is to eliminate the breaks in your vocal range and sing without strain by keeping your larynx low and relaxed.

• Strengthen your breath support


Larynx Position and Blending Chest Voice and Head Voice

Having a low and stable larynx is the secret to great singing, because it allows you to blend chest voice and head voice. By working on keeping your larynx stable and relaxed, you will optimize your blend of chest voice and head voice. Keep these ideas in mind as you work on your blend:

• Avoid a heavy chest voice and a high larynx
• Watch out for singing too heavy on your high notes
• Keep your volume even as you sing higher
• If your larynx is too low, you’ll loose the Balance Point. Don’t over do it
