Will your singing get better if you repeatedly practice falsetto and natural voice vocals?
My answer to this question is yes, but be patient because it takes a lot of time. Improvement can take months even years depending on how dedicated you are. Keeping a routine and practicing daily, even weekly will lead to speedy progression.
Let me explain the reason why.
The purpose of training is to make the cricothyroid muscle strengthen and in turn, be better controlling pitches.
When vocalizing the falsetto contracts the cricothyroid muscle, and when vocalizing the natural voice expands the cricothyroid muscle.
If you do training properly, you can control high-pitch and low-pitch sounds more easily. When training to strengthen the cricothyroid muscle, muscles must contract to move the cricothyroid articulation.
The cricothyroid muscle has the pendant moiety as well as the oblique part, they create a bowing movement which makes the thyroid cartilage close to the cricoid cartilage. The actual sliding movement concludes in making the thyroid cartilage move far away from the cricoid cartilage.
The above movement expands the vocal cord.
If the vocal cord expands, it makes a high-pitched voice. It makes the low-ptiched voice if the lateral cricoarytenoid muscle moves to contract the vocal cord.
The pendant moiety is responsible for producing the dynamic high-pitched voice, and the oblique part makes the soft and sensitive high-pitched voice.
There are conditions that must be met to be able to move the cricothyroid muscle properly. They are as follows:
(1)The muscles that attach the thyroid cartilage to the cricoid cartilage need to have flexibility.
If the muscle is hard, the cricothyroid articulation, it will not be able to move easily and keep control of contracting or expanding the vocal cord.
(2)The cricothyroid articulation can not move at all, and there are three reasons surrounding this issue.
1:The joint to the right and/or left are not functioning properly, causing the movement process to be difficult.
2:The cricothyroid articulation is hardened, physically, and can not move freely.
3:The superior laryngeal nerve, which controls the cricothyroid muscle, is pressured for some reason and obstructs the cricothyroid articulation from moving.
The cricothyroid articulation sometimes suffers temporary muscle damage or fasciitis, due to vocalizing excessively or (straining) too hard.
In conclusion, it is possible to make your singing better if you train by repeating the falsetto and natural voice over and over again. But, if you never get better … it is most likely because the cricothyroid muscle is having trouble moving well.
If you have the above case, I recommend that you fix the cricothyroid muscle to move better.
Most people harden the larynx when they let out their voice, this action makes it difficult to control the voice in detail.
Having hard muscles in the larynx is just a habit of the muscle, not a medical disease.
The greatest characteristic of people who have good voice is that they have flexilible muscles around their larynx.
Make your larynx soft and acquire great voice!
Note:I’ll introduce a way, which you can check the degree of your muscle hardness and also the cricothyroid muscle, which will help you determine if you are using it properly or not. Follow these steps:
First, touch the cricothyroid muscle by your finger gently.
(1) Feel if the muscle fiber is thick enough. (Do not squeeze just feel, and lightly press)
(2)Try to identify the pendant moiety and the oblique part individually by hand.
(3)You can realize when the lower of thyroid cartilage gets close to the upper part of the cricoid cartilage when vocalizing higher-pitched sounds little by little. So, vocalize!
People who cannot naturally produce the above movement, whose high pitched sounds are difficult to produce, it is common to harden the vocal cord muscles to make a high-pitch forcibly. This action is never good ‘in the long run.’ Forced high-pitch vocalization can, make a metallic sounding voice, a difficult to control voice, a hoarse voice, and losing sound level voice for a temporary amount of time. This short time is as long as it takes for the strained/forced/worn muscles to relax and assume their original muscle tone once again. In this case, the worn out singer is not only tired to sing but the listener is also tired to listen to his singing. Be aware if you are using your vocal muscles naturally or forcefully. Practicing production of natural and falsetto sounds with light movements, in time will lead to great vocalization with admirable flexibility of the larynx.
