Okay! Now that you’re combining the breathy and “nasally” (up and forward) voice, let’s solidify this skill to make sure it gives you the female sound quality we’re going for.
Here are some helpful tips to keep in mind.
1. Don’t overthink it. Often women say, “How do I know if I’m doing it right?” or, “I don’t know if I can feel it in my cheeks!” It may feel overwhelming, which is understandable. But the good news is that it may be simpler than you think. If you just focus on sending that sound up to the roof of your mouth, you will be doing this correctly. And it will make a difference.
2. It may help to touch the roof of your mouth with your finger, or a spoon, just for a quick second before you start the exercise. This helps your brain guage where to send the air. Remember you are going for the hard palate. That is the middle of the roof of your mouth, which is shaped like a dome. You want to get to the high point of the dome.
3. Remember the sirens we’ve done as part of the warm-up routine? You can enhance this exercise by doing a few sirens before and after you do the “Haaa’s” and “Hwaaa’s”. Keep sending the air to the roof of your mouth as you do the sirens. You’ll get better and better at it, and you’ll hear the difference.
Remember to have fun…this is an adventure
Great things are waiting for you and your voice, so keep up the good work.
“See” you soon,
