The ultimate goal of these lessons is to find what we call “The Balance Point”: that physical and mental state where all five systems of the voice work together in full coordination and harmony. Once you find it, expect considerable gains in volume and range at significantly lower pressure levels. Some characteristics of the Balance Point:
