Get Rid of the Break in Your Singing Voice

How do you get rid of the break in your singing voice? After watching this video, you’ll eliminate the break in your singing voice forever.



There’s nothing worse than having a break in your singing voice right where you’re suppose to sing a great high note!  


Breaks occur in different places in our voices. This video is about how to get rid of the break in your singing voice that occurs smack-dab right in the middle of your voice.


Ladies, this happens right at the Ab, B, Bb or C above middle C. Right?


Men, you don’t think the break is happening in the middle, you think it’s as the top of your voice…and it is the top right now. What you don’t know is that it’s not really the top of your voice.  There’s another “room” above the E, F, F# above middle C just waiting for you to learn how to sing in!


Get Rid of the Break in Your Singing Voice

Here are four exercises to eliminate the break. They’re the same for men and women. Only the pitches are different.


Here are the exercises.


  1. Bubble lips
  2. Bratty Ney
  3. No
  4. Mum


We’ll do these exercises with 2 scales. The 1 ½ and the Octave Repeat.


Here are the exercises. Let me demonstrate them for both the men and the women. The bubble lips sound like this. [Demo] The bratty neys sound like this. [Demo] The No’s. Demo] The mum’s. [Demo]


1 ½ Scale Bubble Lips for Men

Begin on B2 and go up 2 more half steps and back down to B2. Ready men?


Octave Repeat Scale for Men

Begin on G3-G4 and go down to E3 and back up to G3.  Ready Men? Start with the bratty ney. Then do the no and the mum’s. Here we go.

Play the video back to do the no’s and the mum’s.


1 ½ Scale Bubble Lips for Women

Ladies it starts like this, remember. Start on F#3 and go up 2 more half steps and back down to F#3. Ready, begin.


Octave Repeat Scale for Women

Begin on the C#4-C#5 and go down to the A3 and back up to the C#4.


Good job. Now do the No’s and the Mum’s on the same scale.  Just go back and repeat it on the video.


Tips for Success

#1. With Bubble Lips, don’t let it break. If you break, bend at the waist so that you’re bent about 45 degrees and looking at the floor when singing the highest note. [Demo]


#2. Bratty Neys move quickly to the “e” sounding part of “Nayeee”. Also stay bratty-witchy. [Demo]


#3. No’s and Mum are with normal voice…no bratty sound. Make sure you’re saying “No” and “Mum” and not “Nah” or “Mam”.  [Demo] Keep it on “no” and “mum”.


#4. Do the exercises softer rather than louder. Strive for connection even though it’s light at first.


This is the beginning of great things for your voice.
