Frequently Asked Questions
Why does my voice go hoarse?
You are speaking or singing at a loud volume with a closed throat and no air flowing through the vocal cords/folds
Why does my voice crack?
You are blocking the air flow to the vocal folds due to a closed throat or a palate down or tongue too far back.
Why should I NOT 'mark' my voice?
You are causing the muscles to constrict. You are preventing the vocal folds from comign together. Whispering is the enemy.
Why do I sound nasally?
You are inhaling through your nose and keeping your soft palate, uvula, and pharyngeal areas down.
Why can't I sing high notes?
You need to learn how to use all commands and the cricothyroid tilt (CT) that stretches the vocal folds for achieving upper ranges.
How do I project my voice?
You need to learn how to use all the Commands, including the thyroarytenoid (TA) to lean for low notes.
Why can't I sustain a phrase?
You need to learn how to inhale in all six areas and exhale properly in order to control the air flow.
Why do I feel a choking sensation when I talk or sing?
Your throat is closed. Or your tongue is sliding backward pressing on the larynx.
