Interested in Learning More About Whistle Voice (Singing Teachers)
Heya! I’ve got a question for you all, but especially Matt, who has super vocal nerd powers.
I’d be interested in learning more about whistle voice for myself and my students, but what I’ve heard so far has been a little vague and with an added disclaimer of “well things get so narrow at that stage, it’s hard to see anything with the scope!” So I was wondering if any of you had tips on working with whistle, but more specifically connecting whistle with upper head voice. I know for me personally, upper head voice vs. whistle can feel really different and quite difficult to smooth over. To me head voice generally feels more released whereas whistle feels almost like being in chest again. What I’m guessing is that it’s similar to smoothing over any other bridge/passaggio where you want to allow the folds to continue stretching out whilst keeping enough vocalis/TA engagement to stop things from getting into pure falsetto. Is there anything I’m missing? Any nuggets of wisdom?
