The Power of the Female Voice: Challenges and Peculiarities
In this episode of The Making Musical Quantum Leaps, we had the pleasure of hosting Tara Brueske, host of The Engaging Voice Podcast, to discuss the power of the female voice and the challenges and peculiarities that female singers face.
Tara Brueske is a vocal coach, singer, and podcaster who has been working with singers for over a decade. In this episode, she shares her insights into the female voice and how it differs from the male voice. She also discusses the unique challenges that female singers face and how they can overcome them to take their singing to the next level.
The Power of the Female Voice
Tara explains that the female voice is unique in its ability to convey emotion and connect with audiences. She notes that women have a wider range of notes they can hit than men, which gives them more flexibility in their singing. However, she also points out that women tend to want to sing with a small voice and this can be very detrimental to their vocal health. She spoke of how her coach described vocal coaching as a form of vocal preservation, we must protect our voices seeing that we would like to still be able to sing well even in old age.
One of the most remarkable aspects of the female voice is its power to evoke emotions in listeners. Female singers are often able to communicate a wide range of emotions through their singing, such as joy, sadness, anger, and love. This emotional connection is what sets female singers apart from their male counterparts.
Challenges and Peculiarities
Tara goes on to discuss some of the challenges and peculiarities that female singers face. One of the biggest challenges is learning to control their breath properly. She notes that many female singers tend to take shallow breaths, which can lead to vocal fatigue and strain. Another challenge is learning to sing in different styles, such as classical, pop, and rock. Each style requires a different technique and approach, and female singers need to be able to adapt to each one.
Another challenge that many female singers face is finding the right key for their voice. Women’s voices tend to change over time due to hormonal changes, which can affect their vocal range and quality. As a result, female singers need to be aware of these changes and adjust their singing accordingly.
Tara also discusses some of the peculiarities of the female voice, such as the menstrual cycle. She notes that during certain times of the month, women’s voices can be affected by hormonal changes. This can make it difficult for them to sing at their best, and they need to be aware of these changes and adjust their singing accordingly.
