      Thanks Joe! Yes, the “Mum” works so well for you because it reduces some of the strain.
      Keep up the great work!

    Hi Matt, After many years performing professionally as a classical singer (opera and concert), as a teacher I find myself teaching my high schoolers to belt, because that’s what they sometimes do in their musicals. I very occasionally belted a note a few steps above middle c for emphasis, depending on the emotion of the moment, but never ever belted higher! I understand the voice and good technique, yet needed some concrete ways to talk about belting with my students, and some specific exercises for them. Your article is quite excellent, and i’ll be putting it to use today WIth one of my students on zoom. Thanks!

    Hi Matt, thanks for these exercises, very helpful! I have a question for you. When doing these exercises, are you trying to stay in your chest voice for the whole exercise? Or is it ok to switch into your mixed or head voice when it feels like your voice wants to switch? It’s those notes right around the break (B4, C5, D5 for me) where I’m not quite sure what to do.

      Hey Helen, you’re looking for a “belty mix”!
