Description: Head, chest, mix, modal, falsetto, whistle, fry, thick, thin, TA, CT…the terminology used by singers and voice professionals to describe the registers of the human voice can be incredibly confusing! Many singers are left wondering:
- What is a “vocal register” anyway?
- How do I transition smoothly from one register to another?
- What’s actually going on in my passaggio, and why is it so challenging to sing there?
- What’s the difference between male head voice and falsetto?
- Do women have a “falsetto”?
- Why does my voice crack?
Vocal Registration: A Singer’s Guide will address these questions and many more, covering:
- Clear definitions of common terms like head voice, mixed voice, whistle register
- An explanation of the physiology of vocal registers (including the functions of the TA “thyroarytenoid” and CT “cricothyroid” muscles)
- How factors like breath pressure and vowel affect vocal registration
- The difference between laryngeal registration and acoustical registration
- More than a dozen practical vocal exercises to help strengthen and blend your vocal registers, with a focus on cross-registration exercises
