Among singers, choral directors, and even voice teachers, there remains some confusion as it concerns terminology for the upper register of the human voice. Often, the terms ‘head voice ‘ and ‘falsetto’ are treated like synonyms. Some teachers and writers have purported that men have falsetto and women do not. In my teaching, I often find myself clarifying the terms that students have often heard tossed around.
In this video, I give simplified scientific explanations of head voice and falsetto and why they are NOT the same. I hope that you find this useful and gain more clarity that will help you to develop a balanced approach to a connected mix voice.
