Inside this video I’ll help you diagnose why you’re losing your voice and give you 3 steps to fix your voice so it feels and sounds good every time you sing.

There’s nothing more disturbing to a singer than to lose voice while singing. If you lose your voice during the song, you’re in trouble.
First I’ll show you how to find the cause of the problem. Then I’ll give you 3 steps to correct the issue so you can sing effortlessly without losing your voice. This is a PROVEN approach that’s worked for THOUSANDS OF students and it will work for you!
Number one, overall: Take a Vocal Test!
To diagnose your problem go to PowerToSing.com. On the homepage you will find a vocal test I call the PowerTest. Follow these steps:
- Start by clicking on the red button “Record”.
- Click on “Play”. Be sure to choose your voice “Men” or “Women/Children”
- Start Singing “ah” with the piano accompaniment.
- Click “Stop” when you stop singing.
- Click the grey “Play” button and listen to your vocal test. (The Play button is on the left above the “Name Field”.)
- Answer the quiz questions, enter your email address and click on submit.
- In a minute or so, check your email (check your spam if needed) and tally your answers and choose your vocal type. It will be one of these four. Pulled Chest/High Larynx, Light Chest/No Chest, Flip/Falsetto or Mix.
The vocal test has you sing through the transition area of your voice. This is called the bridge or passaggio. It quickly reveals unwanted muscular reactions which cause straining, breathiness, breaking or flipping into falsetto.
These negative muscular reactions also happen when you sing songs. You may not be aware of it, but often these are the cause of losing your voice.
