Welcome to The Voice Connection Sound Off; a forum for users of books like Raise Your Voice, Melody to Madness, The Ultimate Breathing Workout, and Unleash Your Creative Mindset, as well as a place for Vendera Vocal Academy members to interact.

This message board was created so that singers could come together and "sound off" to help support each other during vocal development and the creative process of unleashing the creative spark that occurs when writing and producing music. Currently, myself and vocal coaches Ben Valen, Ray West, and Ryan Wall are here to respond periodicially to your questions, with new vocal coaches coming soon. But, feel free to help each other too:)

This board is here for you to ask questions about my and my fellow coach's books, videos, and MP3 programs, as well as offer others help with our vocal techniques. You may also post videos of yourself and your band to share your music and ask for critiques.

Please refrain from negative comments, profanities, spamming, and inappropriate criticisms of vocal methodologies, vocal coaches, and singers. All negative posts will be deleted and subject to banning without question. I will not respond to negative posts, because, as Mark Twain once said, “Never argue with stupid people, they will drag you down to their level and then beat you with experience.” With that said, positive criticism is welcome because that is how you'll grow as a singer during the training process.

Skull Cavity Resonance

Jaime, firstly I am loving your book Raise Your Voice. It's definitely the best and most informative book on the voice I have ever owned. I am blown away and I am only three Chapters in.
I wanted to address what you say about soft tissue and the way that it does little to obstruct resonance. To me this is a total revelation. I have often wondered how we are supposed to resonate in the head cavity. I assumed the brain would just be in the way. But if the brain doesn't inhibit the resonance then the skull can operate just as an acoustic chamber. Have I understood you correctly?



Re: Skull Cavity Resonance

Indeed you have, Travis:)
