I will post this here as it's related to the 'final stages' of KTVA. And the search bar doesn't seem to work well with too many terms in the search.
When you have arrived at head voice, and are very experienced with VOL3, you will be doing both, and then you'll end up with the VOL5 information.
I have read some posts of @highmtn
about changing around the time you spend on certain aspects of your voice during your workouts. However, it's not so easy to find those again.
So i am integrating head voice workouts into my somewhat custom VOL3 workouts (i do some stamina things etc.). What I'm doing now (as I have read something similarly suggested) is taking about an hour (60-70 minutes) and dividing that hour into bridging (including warmup), head voice exercises and of course chest exercises. However, by doing this, you will spend less on chest and head voice. Is that really ok? I don't seem to be noticing any decay at all. For now i spend max. 10-15 minutes on head voice, so that leaves a good 20 minutes for bridging and chest. I guess i'm more used to a good 30 minutes on bridging and chest.
Really interested on anyone's opinion on this. @highmtn
also suggests at least reaching a C5 in chest before going to head voice exercises, so that shouldn't be an issue. I can go around D#5 and E5 (not so easily on every type of scale) and maintain some chest quality before completely handing off to head voice. Therefore i would think i am well within a good 'growth' of the voice so to speak.
So, is spending less time on chest and bridging enough for upkeep? will progress simply be slower? (i don't see my chest voice stretching much further, but i'll let it surprise me).
All the best,
