How To Sing Falsetto With Power

Would you like to know how to sing falsetto with power? So you can really hit those high notes that give your audience a thrill? 

Watch this video where I show you exactly how to do this. 

It's not hard, and it just takes a bit of a different approach to get there.

The Key Is To Develop A "Mix"

Normally when you're singing in falsetto your vocal chords are slightly apart. This is why you can get that really "airy" quality. And while this is a really beautiful sound, to get more power you need a slightly different approach. 

What you need to be able to do is sing your high notes with your vocal chords staying together. 

As you can see in the video I demonstrate this and you can hear when I do the sound immediately has more depth and power. 

So how do you go about it? 

"Release" Into Your High Notes

The first tip you can use is demonstrated in the video around the 50 second mark. 

What I'm doing is "releasing" into the high note. What this means is I'm leaving a little gap before hitting it. When you do this you're going to find it easier to hit the note without your vocal chords coming apart. 

This is going to give you a "fuller" sound, which is going to be a great platform to hit your higher notes with more power. 

Pull Your Notes "Downward"

The second tip is more of a mental "thinking" tip. 

What you need to do here is when you go up to those higher notes, just "think" to yourself that you're pulling the note down instead of "reaching" up to it. 

When you think that you're pulling your notes down, it really keeps your voice box in the correct place, which is going to keep your vocal chords functioning correctly. 

The trouble with "reaching" up to your high notes (which most singers do) is it can often cause you to force your voice box out of position, which causes a whole slew of problems.

It's All About Practice! 

These two tips can really help you develop power in your upper range. So practise them and have fun with it! Before you know you'll be singing with more power and a bigger sound up there. 

This is really how to sing falsetto with lot's of power.
