There's a lot of conflicting information out there about what defines vocal register, and how to talk about which register you're singing in. In this video, Lari demystifies the topic and helps you better identify the registers in your own voice, so you can move between them more fluently.
- Let's talk about register.…There's a lot of differences of opinion…and even controversy over how you define…the different modes of singing,…the different kinds of voices that singers can use.…I know I have heard different bits…of information and conflicting information…from various vocal coaches over the years,…and instructors and music directors and other singers.…
A lot of information and not all of it jives.…So for our purposes in this course,…I am going to use a very specific way,…method, of defining the terms that we're going to be using,…and I am going to make these definitions of vocal register…based on the physiological behavior…of vocal folds as viewed by a stroboscope.…So you've gotten that great time…with Dr. Azoff and the vocal clinic.…
You've actually seen what vocal cords look like…when a stroboscope has had the chance to…view them and watch them in action.…And depending on where in your voice you are singing,…your vocal folds behave very differently.…Couldn't look at them not too long ago,…this is kind of a recent development…
