We’ve all had it happen. You’re singing through a song and you get to that point in the piece where your voice breaks, flips, clunks, or simply disappears altogether. How do you smooth vocal breaks in the singing voice? You know you have notes above that point, but why does your voice struggle smack bang in the middle? I’ve got all the answers coming right up…
So first of all, let’s name this all-too common part of our vocal range. Classical singers call it the ‘passaggio,’ but as a contemporary singing teacher I prefer the term, transition. We actually have three points of transition; with each one occurring between the four distinct registers, pulse, lower, upper and flute for girls and falsetto for guys.
Interestingly, men and women generally experience the primary point of transition differently. For guys the primary transition causes some issues when moving from their upper register into falsetto. Whereas the primary gear change for women is more often than not felt when moving from their lower to upper registers.
