Developing Your Head Voice

Developing a strong and clear head voice is necessary for reaching your full vocal potential. The voice can be categorized 3 ways:

1) chest voice
2) head voice
3) a blend of chest and head voice (a mixed voice)

Because we normally sing in our chest voice, we have a tendency to spend little or no time exercising our head voice. Since our head voice uses different vocal coordinations, we must use different exercises and coordinations to train it. In order to train the head voice, exercises that have a light vocal weight are needed. Exercises such as “ooh”, “wee”, “quo”, and “pwee” take the heavy vocal weight off of the vocal cords and “shift” the tonal resonance towards the head. Practicing these sounds on octave, arpeggio, double octave and mixed octave scales will help build strength, flexibility and agility for the head voice.

When singers neglect to develop their head voice, they forgo the ability to have a clear and powerful mixed voice. The mixed voice needs something to release into, and if there is no head voice present, singers are forced to thicken up their cords and try to produce more tone with their chest voice. This inevitably causes the singer to use too much vocal compression or to pull up too much chest voice. Either way, the tone comes out lifeless and unpleasant. Once the head voice is strong and secure, singers can begin the shift and blend the two registers with power and presence.

Develop your head voice! Don’t neglect this vital part of your vocal workout!

  1. [...] Head voice is a mysterious part of the voice for many singers. Many singers refer to it as their “falsetto” voice, but the two are very different. Falsetto is an airy, weightless sound made by a very loose connection of the vocal cords. Head voice, on the other hand, is a weighted sound based on proper vocal cord closure. The main difference between head voice and falsetto is tone. Falsetto has little to no tone. Head voice can be full of tone. [...]
