  • Finding the Singing Voice

    Jess Buice helps 3rd grade students find their Singing Voice (head voice).

    Following the importance of sitting up to produce the best breath, students will experience the voice moving from their chest to their head. Beginning with a closed mouth, teeth, and tongue, students experience the sound (vibration) stopped by the closed tongue, stopped by the closed teeth, and then vibrating the slightly closed lips, producing a correct hum. The singing voice is found when students open the hum to produce a sung tone. - Jess Buice
