Listening Inside Can Be Confusing!

Sometimes the correct placement of the voice in the "mask" can sound (according to my students) "piercing", "ugly", "whiny", or "weird" to the singer when he or she first discovers it. The mask is actually the bridge of the nose which is riddled with open spaces called air sinuses. These sinuses do not produce mucus, but add to the quality of the sound through sympathetic vibration (i.e.RESONANCE). They are the source of the timbre of your voice, the unique identifying quality of your sound.
