Problem Voices – Tips to Turn Bad Vocal Sound Into Rich Resonance


Skinny, hooty, weak, lifeless, nasal and edgy drawback voices all have one factor in common- the “resonance cave” of the voice is just not utterly open.

The nostril is definitely large inside. The highest of the nasal membrane goes all the way in which as much as the eyes.

Resonance is created and modified by the state of this channel. Here is the way it works:

* The vocal cords vibrate the larynx.
