Vocal Ease Method Voice Lessons

The Female Chest Voice

Earlier, I wrote about the Female Chest Voice, but I didn’t tell you what to do about it. With Cause and Effect exercises, you can create the chest voice feeling. You will create a feeling your muscles memorize (muscle memory).

This works for people of all ages:

In an almost talking voice, sing Naaaa (the “a” is pronounced like BAT). Sing this Naaa on a do re mi fa so fa mi re do. Or imagine your fingers being like a glove and from the thumb to the little finger, you can sing 1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 4, 3, 2, 1.

Good. Now sing Naaa in a whiny, ugly, nasty sound. If you do this just right, you will feel the resonance or echoing type of feeling in your chest. Do this for awhile and you can get a feeling for your chest voice.

Of course, you don’t want to sing this way in songs. This is just a vocal exercise to get your muscles to memorize how to sing in your chest. Do this before you go to the higher notes. If you have any trouble with it and just can’t get it on your own, you can make an appointment with me to work on this in a lesson or online using the webcam with Skype. I’ll help you learn exactly how to do it.
