I am a male, 16 year old. I was wondering if it hurts your vocal cords to laugh or sing in your falsetto voice? When I am singing in my falsetto voice I can hit an “A.” I am confused because everyone is telling me something different… please help!
When you are in falsetto your are not actually using your vocal cords (you are using what are called false vocal cords) so you will not hurt your voice. If you refer to Richard Miller’s THE STRUCTURE OF SINGING you can get a full explanation of falsetto in the male voice. His TRAINING TENOR VOICES is also helpful.
