Transition between chest and head.

As is expected, I have a crack in my voice when transitioning between chest and head, but something I was just wondering about is that when I try to pass through the crack slowly and without much force, rather than the crack, the sound just comes out as air as I try to raise my notes, and at a certain point, the falsetto kicks in. So basically, is this because I haven’t trained enough yet? It’s as if there is just a gap between my notes that is filled with air. (Sorry if this is obvious, I’m just confused).

    Hi Jack

    Especially at the start of training we can lose chord closure which can sound breathy or even just pass air through. Important on your bridging to head exercises very gently especially when reaching register break between head and chest. The aim is to pass over into head voice smoothly, to start with without the yodel we have to do it very gently.

    It takes time to build strength in those areas so be patient.
