Abstract

It must be stressed, again, that vocal production being recommended for the pure upper register, (CT-dominant) register of the male changing voice is not falsetto. The falsetto voice is a “false” voice, a product of strained vocal technique-the larynx rises and cuts out the laryngeal resonator, resulting in a weak, unsupported sound. A male singer is incapable of making a crescendo when singing in falsetto. Every effort must be made to avoid a falsetto sound.
