Vocal Training on Building Pharyngeal Resonance

Before we dive into how to build pharyngeal resonance in your voice, let’s quickly explore what it actually is.

Resonance is really what we’re all striving for in our voice. It’s what we want.

It’s that deep full reverberating sound.

But don’t fall into the trap and think that volume equals resonance, because it doesn’t. Resonance from your voice is not forced. You don’t have to use extra air and risk cracking your voice which can happen if you try to sing too loud.

This is where the importance of the pharyngeal resonance comes in.

Your head and chest are your two registers and resonators. The third resonator is your pharynx.

As your voice comes up through your pharynx, you get a pharyngeal sound which you want to blend with your chest and head voice. This gives you one big blended and mix sound.

To learn a technique about this, watch the video below from Aaron Anastasi. The technique starts at 3:15.

Just watching this video, it’s clear how knowledgeable Aaron Anastasi is.

This is definitely more of an advanced technique, and Aaron covers all this and more in his course The Superior Singing Method.

Whether you’re a beginner or you’ve been singing for years, The Superior Singing Method is a great online course that will help you improve your singing skills.

Aaron has created an awesome singing course and it’s the program I love to recommend the most.
