TERMINOLOLGY TUESDAY – How to work through your Vocal Break/Passaggio
You may remember this earlier post about the term Passaggio.
Well – this is such a hot topic in my voice lessons, I thought I'd bring it back.

You might not even realize that you have having issues because the song you are singing sits right in your Passaggio. When we have to sing through this part of our voice it can cause cracking, inconsistency and all kinds of issues. It often makes singers feel unstable and out of control.
DON'T WORRY! THERE IS HELP!
In this video, you can learn more about what exactly the Passaggio is, and how to avoid the aches and pains of singing through that tricky spot. [leadplayer_vid id=”52DE069AD397E”]
