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.

Atrophied Falsetto

I have recently gotten back into singing, and my falsetto seems to have atrophied in the time that I took off. My chest voice range is from E2 to E4 (and from D2 to F#4 on a really good day) My falsetto currently only goes from C#5 to E5. When I try to sing quietly in falsetto my voice breaks back into chest, and any falsetto singing feels like sandpaper on my voice. To be clear, I am a trained singer, but I haven't done any workouts in about a year. I'm currently 19 and I think I'll finally be able to blend falsetto and chest voice once I can build my falsetto up a bit.
