Not only is this quite normal for a singer, it can actually be a sign that you're breathing correctly in the more intense passages. I first experienced it when learning to breathe from the diaphragm when I first began taking voice lessons. When we sing intensely, we tend to go through a lot of air. Compared to normal breathing, this looks an awful lot like ...

Average untrained baritone male range is F2-D4 Average untrained tenor A2-Ab4 and will have naturally resonant falsetto/head voice up to Eb5 that can slide in and out of call register. Average Trained Baritone range is F2-G4(A4 Extreme). Average Trained tenor range is A2-C5(Eb5 Extreme). falsetto range can vary between the two, in fact some baritones can ...

Singing pitch is mainly controlled by the tension on the vocal folds. Higher pitch, higher tension. You failed to mention your age: the vocal folds (basically peripheral parts of muscles) and other movable parts of the larynx are fixed to cartilage. This cartilage construct gets a growth spurt (like a calving glacier) when your voice changes in puberty ...

The answer to most of this is relax, keep your throat muscles loose (yawning actually helps with this). An audience wants you to be good, so they're typically behind you, but if you act nervous, that'll come across in the 'feel' of the gig more than anything. There's various techniques, keep moving your feet beforehand, to keep blood flowing. Breathe ...

You'll probably find you don't have a single threshold between falsetto and chest/head voices, but instead these ranges overlap. Many singers work on extending the range of their head voice upwards to have a more full-bodied sound in a higher register. Low-pitched falsetto is a bit of an oxymoron, I'm not entirely sure what you hope to achieve, but you'll ...

Vocaloid has already been mentioned and it's the most popular solution to date, although it's still quite far from a real voice. There are other apps like VocalWriter, quite old but interesting, or Text to Sing. Lately Realitone released Blue, not a full vocal synthesizer per se, but it includes a word builder and sounds pretty great. You may also want to ...

The things that determine voice type are: 1) Range (to some extent, but this is not exact and expands with training, i.e., good breath support, etc.) 2) Tessitura: that is, the range of notes where the most beautiful tone is produced 3) Timbre (specifically, the location of the vocal formants, but this will be audible to a singing teacher more as tone ...

I've had three or four vocal coaches tell me to just relax and let the air flow, but when I do that I crack into falsetto. Falsetto is a switch in voice box configuration. Basically as you go higher, there is more tension in one part of some flipping mechanism and at some point it flips. Mixed voice is not waiting for the flip but rather working with ...

As others have said: most sight-singing classes don't care if your voice sounds well. It's all about reading, keeping rythm and holding pitch. It's not a voice lesson. You're not becoming an opera singer, you're developing a more intimate relation to written music. For holding pitch, which I suspect is your main concern, a lot of it is about building ...

Unless you are going to be a singer, don't worry too much about vocal quality. Obviously, there are books you can read on vocal pedagogy to help with healthy singing technique, but probably not necessary in your case; ask your singer friends for some pointers and I'm sure they'll be happy to help you out. One of the ways I learned to sight-sing that was ...

When using "Czardas" as an example for portamento identity, it's important to note that the interpretive portion of the piece is heavily rubato, disregarding time/tempo and leaving much to expression. A clear definition of portamento (as I perform it, attacking a note and sliding to another with no discernable voicings in between,and almost immediately ...

It seems to make sense that people with lower voice, male or female, meaning with thicker vocal chord, to more easily produce falsetto sound. They partially vibrate their thinner edge of their vocal chords and can more easily make a more distinguished falsetto sound.
