Watch this video below for how to sing falsetto in a way that preserves your voice as well as sounds great!
Falsetto is that light airy tone that has a beautiful, delicate quality to it.
It can be the perfect thing to use sometimes when a song needs a light touch.
However if it's overused it can take it's toll on your voice.
If you sing in your upper vocal register a lot and use falsetto every time you go up there, over time your voice will become worse for wear.
There are some big name singers who have suffered this. Mariah Carey for instance has been doing incredible things for a long time, but due to overuse of falsetto her voice is beginning to wear.
Obviously falsetto can sound really beautiful, so it would be a shame to lose that quality in the name of preserving your voice!
Fortunately there is an alternative that can give you the same beautiful sound, but with no long term consequences.
You see, when you sing in falsetto what's happening is your vocal chords are coming apart, which is why you get that airy sound.
Instead of this, you can sing into your upper registers and maintain a slight connection with your vocal chords. This is typically known as a "head voice" sound.
By maintaining a small connection you can get a very similar sound to falsetto, however it's a much healthier way to sing.
In the video above I demonstrate this as well as give you a few exercises so you can develop this quality.
It's well worth practicing because it gives you the ability to sing falsetto with no consequences whatsoever (in a manner of speaking).
The exercises in the video will also give you a lot of flexibility and skill. They are a little higher in difficulty level (as things tend to be in your upper vocal range), however with a little practice and patience, before long you'll be dazzling audiences with beautiful high notes.
