    Hi Jim,

    More importantly than the "topping out" at eb5 is how weak the chest and support is getting to those notes.

    You are actually developing a decent (but uncontrolled) nice bright timbre to your head voice, but if you switch that early without strong upper mid voice, you will have a very difficult time developing power in your upper mid register and in the transition.

    My suggestion is to focus a bit more on your chest call range for a bit and then work on the connection a little later with better support and more authority.

    Then we will stretch headvoice beyond eb5.

    Over time this will be much safer for your voice.
