Is this Head Voice? And if so, does it get any stronger?

Just trying to get the feeling right. I can feel some buzzing right behind my nose (like on the front of my skull). Most of the music I want to sing is in this range (C4 to A4), but I have to use the sound you hear in this clip to hit those notes. I can take my chest voice up to a G4, but often, I need to hit an A4 and it just doesn't happen. So yeah, does head voice get any stronger than this. And by stronger I mean closer to the lead singer of Young the Giant when he actually sings "My Body".

    Yes, you're using head voice in this clip. You're actually mixing a little bit, the farther you go along, but it's a heady mix. You need to work on stretching your chest voice up to higher notes in order to get anything more substantial in your voice in this range.

    Thanks highmtn. Based on your response, that means my chest voice still has room to grow. That is good news because I thought I had reached my limit.

    Sounding pretty good already. How long have you been working the program?

    @Moftem sorry I'm so late, college got the best of me for a while. At the time of this post I had been on the program off and on for 7 months. I'd say 2 months of cumulative work. It's also probably important to note that I never got to Volume 3. I finished Volume 2 though.

    Ah. Are you not practicing much at the moment? Other responsibilities I assume. Life can get in the way of our singing ambitions for sure.

    Never got to Volume 3, but I frequently use Volume 1 as a warmup nowadays (I'm in a band). I "sing" everyday though. It's a habit. In the shower, walking to class, imitating singers for laughs. But I actively practice 2 to 3 times a week now.
