  • Most people think that head voice and falsetto are the same thing and the terms are used almost interchangeably. But these two places in the voice are entirely different. When you are singing in head voice, you’re still allowing about a third of your vocal cords to vibrate. But falsetto is produced when so much air blows through the cords that the cords completely separate and only the outer periphery or edge of the vocal cords vibrates.

    Since the falsetto is often referred to as the child’s voice, don’t be afraid to become a child. See if you can make your voice sound like a fire engine, a choo-choo train, a boat whistle, or a foghorn. Try to become those images by using your voice. Cartoon characters often have high voices, voices produced by using the falsetto.

    It’s important to do whatever it takes to free the voice. Lean to play with your voice. Don’t be afraid to experiment with it. Go ahead and make all kind of sounds. Put the voice into the realm of all possibilities instead of limitation. Once you discover how to do it, you might be surprised at how easy it is to produce and how much fun it can be.

    In this exercise I did an improvisation in a song for you to show the benefits of the falsetto. In the next exercises, first I used an easy scale for develop your falsetto, and then I used a more difficult scale.

    Good luck!
