In a youtube, ken taught us to bring our headvoice down in a descending scales in order to get a good cord closure..
but what if we already achieve that cord closure? Is it safe to do an ascending scales? My goal is to increase the top range of my headvoice..

This is the EE scales i did in headvoice


And this is my LAH AH scales in headvoice


Am i bright enough? Am i still breathy on the sound?
I find its a little harder to keep a cord closure in Lah Ah scales rather than EE scales..
Would love to hear your opinion regarding my scales😃

    At 2.29 ken encourage us to focus solely on getting a bright sound..isn't that supposed to mean to get a good cord closure? If so, then is it safe to do an ascending scales if we did achieve good cord closure? But in the video ken never mention anything about ascending scales/increasing top range of our headvoice..

    Thanks for that. Ok so for this video Ken is referring to growing the head voice down into the chest register, which you do AFTER you have grown your chest voice nice and strong.

    So yes you always want a bright tone and good cord closure for all your scales to help grow your voice. You also can do your ascending scales to stretch your head voice up. Always remember to keep things balanced by spending the same time on your chest voice as well.

    Your scales are pretty good. Pitch is good, support sounds good cord closure on the top notes is good but you start a bit breathy. Keep that cord closure going from the start to the finish of each scale. Good job!
