There's a bit of a catch-22 to watch for. If you try to "strengthen" a thin voice with just a harder application of breath power, you will end up with a harsh (and strained) voice. The real goal should be to make the thin voice richer. How you do this is basically...
- Get your breath right:
- Get your throat open:
- Get your communicative intention focused:
And for those who are counting... these three things happen to be the three points of synergy in Power, Path and Performance vocal training! This stuff works, it really does.
Now I have a question for you: How many of you have had problems with thin, lifeless, hooty, harsh or otherwise weak voices? I'd love to hear from you. After reading this post, what do you think cause your voice to sound thin?
