So one of my students mentioned this to me and I decided to do a little research on it and I found out that its one of the most difficult skills and once you can do it, you have acquired 70โ„… singing control ability. Why? Because doing it demands that you learn a lot of singing techniques before you can get it right. Wanna learn it? Look ๐Ÿ‘‡

Messa di voce is TO SING ON A SINGLE NOTE SOFTLY THEN LOUD THE SOFTLY THEN LOUDLY. It the best way for you to achieve what is known as VOCAL DYNAMICS (being able to control your singing volume). Its mostly used by classical singers but it can be done with others genre.

The best part of this vocal technique is that it allows us be able to control our vocal cords and sound as we sing. Especially for those that like to shout instead of sing. I have taught about laryngeal positions. Most people who can do this well are those who can sing using different larynx position.

Not just laryngeal positions, resonance, mostly. How? Resonance is a very important singing technique as it is known to keep pressure off the larynx when you sing. But not just that, resonance is also our vocal amplifiers. With resonance and getting pressure off the larynx, you no longer need to shout because by directing sound waves generated by the vibrations of the vocal folds to the various vocal tracts (resonators: nasal cavity, pharynx, mouth....), You can be able to control the volume of your voice. You won't need more air or more pressure. High notes can be sang with low volume. Cool right??? This is how messa di voce is achieved.

So, messa di voce In general, gives you a dynamic control over your voice as it allows you control the Volume of your voice. This way, you can sing high notes quietly.

So how to you do this?

There are 5 ingredients you need.

1. ๐๐‘๐„๐€๐“๐‡ ๐‚๐Ž๐๐“๐‘๐Ž๐‹: as you go high, use less air. This doesn't mean you won't sound loud and audible. You will because of your resonance. Just know you need less air as you get louder.

2. ๐๐ˆ๐“๐‚๐‡ ๐‚๐Ž๐๐“๐‘๐Ž๐‹: You may end up changing key either you go flat as you're getting louder or shard when you're soft. Pay attention to the key. Use your ears and be sharply attentive. Don't go offkey.

3. ๐‚๐Ž๐Œ๐๐‘๐„๐’๐’๐ˆ๐Ž๐ ๐‚๐Ž๐๐“๐‘๐Ž๐‹: we all know that when our vocal cords are apart, we sound airy and when they're together, we sound to tight. When using the massa di voce, you may want to get too tight as you get louder and too airy we you get softer. That's not the trick. It should be on a balanced and sustained normal cord compression. Keep it leveled.

4. ๐‹๐€๐‘๐˜๐๐†๐„๐€๐‹ ๐‚๐Ž๐๐“๐‘๐Ž๐‹: a lot of people tend to take the larynx too low as they go loud and too high as they go soft. Nooooooo. You're meant to keep it on a levelled position. And yes there may be movements but let it be SLIGHT.

5. ๐•๐Ž๐‚๐€๐‹ ๐‘๐„๐†๐ˆ๐’๐“๐‘๐€๐“๐ˆ๐Ž๐: As go go high for each vocal register, we tend to lift our larynx up and this will temper with the efficiency of the messa Di voce. This is why it is advisable for y'all to use your vocal registers. With every vocal registers provides a better control of your larynx.

6. ๐‘๐„๐’๐Ž๐๐€๐๐‚๐„: Most people tend to get loud because they don't know how to use the resonance. Resonators are already voice projectors so you don't need to shout. Just play your voice in the right vocal tract and you are good to goooo.

Once you know how to do all that ๐Ÿ‘†๐Ÿ‘†, you can then..... ๐Ÿ‘‡๐Ÿ‘‡


Now just in case you don't understand, here are some exercises and ideas you can apply to make this work

I. Sing without singing. It's a way of singing without making any sound at all. All that is there is just the movement of your mouth and your body energy. I want you to do this to even the highest notes possible. Just open your mouth and sing a high pitched song without making any sound. Like lip syncing but with the energy that seems like you're actually voicing out even when you aren't. Now when you're doing this, try to be as calm as possible. This will prevent you from seeing the high notes as something that requires you to be extra loud. This will train your body and mind to SING the high notes and not HIT the high notes, preventing you from shouting.

II. Sing the high note songs at night when everyone is sleeping. This will train you not to shout. If you like shout, they will beat you. So this will help you sing high notes without shouting because your mind is trying to prevent noise from coming. At this point, you're training your mind to see the high notes as a noiseless factor because there's a disturbance at stake. But remember, without good breath support and resonance and cord coordination, you will not get full control and might end up shouting.

III. SING the high notes and don't HIT the high notes. See the high notes as equal to the low notes. Don't see the high notes as high even if it's high. You can do this by adjusting your body's reaction to the high notes. Usually when we wanna sing high notes, we tend to stiff our body especially clenching the abs, and neck muscles and we tilt our neck forward. This time, be calm. Ways you can do this is by pointing at the floor when you sing the high notes as opposed to pointing upwards when you sing the high notes. You can also keep your head straight and not looking up. You can also take your whole body a little downwards as you approach the high notes. This will prevent you from having the HIT mentality. You SING high notes. Not HIT. Basically, let the high seem low and here, your body is helping you achieve that mindset. This is why warming up your body before singing is very important

So I hope this was helpful. If this seems strange to you, or you really wanna learn how to do this, trust me, there way more from where these came from. You can sing those high notes way more than you Imagined. All you gotta do is simply register for our online vocal lessons on WhatsApp and learn more more and more about all these things, even the ones you thought were impossible will then seem possible.

A good singer is not defined by talent alone but also by how you fulfill your responsibilities, build relationships, and work with other members. ๐ŸŽถ


the next time
you refuse to sing
because youโ€™ll never
fill a stadium
or decline the joy of dance
for fear of looking
or you resist risking
the new adventure
because youโ€™re
not entirely ready or
you dim your shine
because youโ€™re not
completely healed and whole

the next time
you hold yourself suspect
because youโ€™re not
entirely qualified

just remember

a bird doesnโ€™t sing
because itโ€™s talented
a bird sings because
it has a song

the moon doesnโ€™t only shine
when itโ€™s whole
it can show up with
a single sliver of itself
and still light an entire
night sky

show up. sing. shine.
the world needs you
as you are.
