Questions and Answers

What advanced knowledge do you have about the detached falsetto in male voices?

Can truly float the detached falsetto only about as high as tenor A (A4), and that's it. After that, I can continue up to about C#5, but it is not really floated and takes a moderate effort to sustain. Past that, I can go as high as maybe E5 but it involves considerable engagement of thyroarytenoids and a drastic hardening and crescendoing of the tone. I would like to be able to float the detached tones up to E5-F5 so I can do a little bit of Baroque/countertenor singing.. I have tried: Lightening and focusing of the of the full voice in the C4-A4 range. Vocalizations in the "pharyngeal" voice. Exercise to increase velar lift (since I have a collapsed pillar on one side of my throat--see explanation below.) I also vocalize frequently using short Baroque pieces (e.g. Lascia chio pianga) in lower keys, so as not to require pitches above C5 or D5.. I think it was caused by: I have a collapsed pillar on one side of my throat as a result of scarring from my childhood tonsillectomy. However, I'm not sure that this asymmetry is what is impacting the falsetto in particular. With the rest of my voice I have apparently gotten around it, and ENT who performed a laryngoscopic exam on me reported no palateal incompetence.

My Falsetto has changed? Help me recover it?

I was having cold a week back. When I recovered and tried to sing in falsetto, it sounds like more than half of it is cracked. My falsetto is lighter and I can only sing falsetto during sometimes in a day only. I have tried: I tried exercises like the one in which you sing: AE-AE-AE, clearing my throat, try to sing in it every time possible. I think it was caused by: Shouting with my full voice, not singing falsetto for a while, falling ill
