Questions and Answers

I'm 17 years old and a Tenor 1. I've never learned to use my mixed and was comfortable holding Bs and Cs in the chest until this year when I can occasionally hold an A above middle C, but usually break on a G sharp. I can't use my falsetto, though, and it's a problem as I sing in an acapella group that competes, and need to be able to comfortably sit on Ds and Es above middle C?

I believe that my voice may have changed, and I need to re learn to use my Falsetto. In the process of doing that, though, I'd like to learn how to properly use mixed voice and head voice because I believe that I'll be a much stronger singer because of it. When I vocalize myself, I can comfortable hit an F in a Bass range, and a G above middle C in the chest, but begin to get uncomfortable at a G Sharp, and generally break on an A. This wouldn't be a problem if my falsetto was still functioning, but it is not. Any help as to why?. I have tried: -Tea before Performances

-Vocal Rest

-Classical training (All State choir 2 years)

-I think it was caused by: I believe that this problem came from improper singing and a lack of training in Mixed and Head Voice (My chest voice up until this year was always enough, even when singing Cs above middle C.)

Why does falsetto sound dry in morning?

Our voices sound different in the morning for a couple of reasons. First, there's a buildup of fluid and mucus because we haven't been talking for a few hours. Second, there's a chance that you've dried your vocal cords out by breathing through your mouth.

What happened to my falsetto and upper range?

When I was younger I used to sing naturally with a high voice (falsetto) and most of the time stayed in my middle and upper range and as I got a bit older I noticed changes where my falsetto and higher range was decreasing and my voice started to deepen. I'm now 17 years old and it's been 3 years and I have no ability to sing high notes or falsetto. Is that normal ?. I have tried: I've had vocals lessons for a few years and nothing seems to be working.

How to I isolate the trouble spots in my voice and what steps do I take to help them recover properly?

Hello Daniel, I am a rock singer having trouble with parts of my range. I have been singing at a professional level for about 3 years. Recently I have noticed a loss in my falsetto, especially when I am singing a long "A" vowel. I attribute these losses to a busy performance schedule during allergy season and working nights in a Kitchen part time. My work environment is vocal intensive, not to mention about 96 degree's regularly. I am interested in getting a vocal scope from an ENT but it's very expensive even with insurance. What are some natural ways I can find my trouble spots and help my voice recover properly? I am interested in understanding the damaged or strained parts of my voice, what causes them, and how to help them properly recover. I have tried: Drinking water, vocal rest, sleep, warm ups and cool downs. I think it was caused by: Lack of sleep, allergies, performance strain, dehydration, vocal intensive work environment,

1. Drink a glass of water before going to bed or the night before in order to keep your throat moist before going to bed

2. Drink lemon tea the night before so that you can fight the mucus in your throat so that you can clear up your voice before you go to sleep.

3. Eat foods that are low in sugar so that you are not adding mucus to your throat before the next day. This is the effect of someone waking up the next morning having to cough off phlegm.

Here is a video to help you in order to be at your best for your performance the next day:

Drink warm water. Not too hot and not too cold. This will help reduce any vocal chord inflammation from singing. You want to drink the water throughout the evening as well as before any performance for 24 hours if possible.
